Pros: Sales bonus

My Experience at Google
Local Data Operations Evaluator (Current Employee), Mountain View, CAJuly 17, 2015
Pros: Great People!, Great Atmosphere!
Cons: Late Buses
My experience at Google summed up in one word would be "unforgettable". The opportunity of working in such a successful, prestigious company was a real privilege. A typical work day involved waking up – more... early, catching the morning shuttle, enjoying a nice ride to work with comfortable seats and wifi, after arriving at my destination I would quickly go to the cafe nearest to me and grab some breakfast and coffee, then head over to my desk to check emails, and start working on my production. My co-workers were always very friendly and outgoing. We would all interact about our job and share insight or give advice to one another on how to improve. I've learned how important it is to ask for feedback on work in order to improve as well as give something back to the team. The hardest part of my job was completing the production in a timely manner but my favorite part was when it was finally accomplished at the end of the week. Overall great place to work! – less

Marketing Localization Product Manager (Former Employee), Mountain ViewJuly 7, 2015
I was a contractor here for about a year... Enjoyed my time and assignment. I think however that culturally, it was not a good fit for me because I could not relate to the maturity level of my peers...But nothing personal. Great company.

Great seasonal job during tax season
Quality Control Operator (Former Employee), Mountain View, CAJuly 2, 2015
It was always nice to put a smile on someone else's face whenever they met you at the front desk. Tax season gets stressful, but our branch was organized and definitely got the job done. I had such a sweet boss who always took care of me and although my co-workers were quite older than me, they always were kind souls.

Wonderful Team, Office
Account Strategist (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MIJune 25, 2015
Google is a phenomenal company to work for. The trick is to get into the right field of the company from the get-go because it is tough to maneuver within such a large well-oiled machine of a company. – more... For example, I was in sales for two years, including during a huge company re-organization in which people did not have much say about their team reassignments. In order to get out of sales, it would have taken several promotions, a major recommendation and fighting off fierce competition for the much smaller amount of marketing jobs available. It was smarter to go get my MBA to be able to pursue a field I wanted to pursue than stay at Google through all of that. – less

No such thing as typical day of work. Very diversified and plenty of opportunity to learn new technologies. Quarterly outings were always fun until things took a turn. Co-workers remain unmatched by any others. I loved the challenge and the intellect each individual brought to the team.
