Great work culture: lots of smart people trying to solve very hard problems to help customers, but very little arrogance. Very measurement focused. Management is supportive of workers, and mistakes are understood to happen (but not repeatedly, appropriately). The food and office amenities are well publicized and just as great as you would imagine
Drove improvements across the business as a result of IT implementations. Equipped SPM’s across the organization with solutions that accelerated their OKR(action based metric) by 40%, providing additional visibility into partner relationship(improving the workflow), and reducing ticket to support by 60%.
The management at Google, at least in the technical area, are ICs that reached their peak technically so they are 'promoted' to manager regardless of skills in leadership, people management, team growth, etc.
With superb dedication, initiative, collaboration, and networking skills, you can succeed and survive at this very demanding workplace. They look for people with not just their skills but also for their well-roundedness as a person and as an employee.
Google is rife with corporate politics. It's truly sad and disgusting that people with Napoleon complex are allowed and enabled to make other people's lives miserable simply because their managers are sick and twisted. Google is very bad about exiting these types of people. It's a true shame.
