Overall a great experience. Come hungry and you'll be busy! The work environment is great, and there is always so much to learn around the office. Everyone is friendly.
I couldn't have a better opinion of Google X as everyone was beyond helpful and extremely accommodating. It was an absolute honor to have worked with some of the brightest minds in creating radical new technologies to solve some of the worlds hardest problems.
A typical day at work would be out in the field, doing survey scans on businesses/companies. This involved going to the locations, and completing a quick data scan on a cell phone(s). Two of the other main projects involved bluetooth beacon installations and maintenance, and a GPS location accuracy test project among several model phones. I learned that technology is becoming more and more intertwined in our lives, in ways we don't even know yet- the future both excites me and terrifies me. The hardest part of the job would be maintaining the relationships in your life- on average, 2 weeks of every month were spent working out of state. The most enjoyable parts of the job were probably in how autonomous you were out in the field, and being on the forefront of technology developments worldwide.
As a surveyor our week typically started on Sunday. We would get a call or message sometime during the weekend to confirm where and what time we need to be on Sunday. Sundays were our day to start travel so we could be ready to go on Monday morning. We usually worked 10-12 hour days considering some of your time your driving or waiting on clients. Over time was no problem getting and you probably couldn't tell you worked so many hours based on how long you had to travel for work. Great job.
Lots of travel
Lots of travel
Was able to almost visibly see the difference in treatment between contractors and direct hired workers. Management will ask a lot of you with no explanations.
problems roll down hill type leadership, way to many "cooks" for one kitchen
I worked as a contractor for Google Maps, working to collect location data to improve the quality of the service. There was very poor support from the management, the targets were unrealistic and pushed people to work superficially in order to reach them
I was a contractor and was given flexibility work hours I chose to work as long as I complete the job daily. The team I worked is great to work with and we collaborated our responsibilities very well. It was a learning experience and I get to see so many places in my travel. As a contractor, your chance does not improve the odds of landing a permanent job with Google. They treated me with respect and was very accommodating to provide ASL interpreter for meetings and training.
long hours.I was hardly at home during the week. Not much time for me to chill and relax.
The problem with Google is that if you are a contractor, as most employees are, the costs far exceed the benefits. The job culture is fantastic. But in most cases, the work is very thankless. You don't get much enjoyment out of completing a task.
Do whatever you want and complete the task in the given time. You must be outstanding in doing that particular task given to you. If you're passionate enough, you will rock it.
Free Food, Work from any where in the campus.
I worked with a team of sysadmins on Google's CDN. The job was decent overall, but I had a hard time connecting with co-workers, and overall I feel like we were pigeonholed into a very small set of tasks that was kind of stifling in the long run. YMMV.
