I've enjoyed my time at Google from day one. The work is complex, engaging, and each day presents new and interesting business problems to solve. I am free to try new and interesting projects and then demonstrate their value through open communications and manager discussions.
Company doesn't care about work ethic and hustle but more about not making sure you don't "offend" anyone. Everyone there looks into what you mean to say in your communications then what you are actually saying.
The job was very easy to do but the way the system worked and was not honest with employees. I found myself putting out fires developed by lies. My manager was pretty great and genuine. I was thankful for that.
Working here has been a great opportunity for me. I've enjoyed my coworkers positive and creative attitudes and have been inspired while here. Management has challenges in consistency and follow through, though all are very nice people.
Free lunch, Dooglers, creative personnel, remote flexibility, room for work life balance
Work in silos, no consistency, lack of respect for others time, confusion on priorities
My experience at Google was extremely positive. I learned so much new technology as well as experiencing a new culture. Very easy to be creative as an ABP which makes the job fun. Unfortunately, there are only 4 positions for ABP at Google Pittsburgh, however, I am grateful to have experienced the role for 7 mos.
Free food, casual fun atmosphere, work anywhere if you want to get away from your desk.
Contractors and vendors are treated less than!! Unfortunately...
The best company on the planet. Still growing and now it is a huge company, but still moves fast. It is getting political, but still maintains great corporate culture considering the size of the organization.
