Data Specialist (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA – September 24, 2013
A typical day at my current position at Google starts by logging into my computer, checking email for updates or any other necessary information, and checking the Calendar for any meetings. Then moving data around using the proprietary software that they have made for us to provide data to engineers in Mountain View occupies the rest of the day. The coworkers and culture is the best thing about working here. The relationships you make, and the people you meet make coming to work an enjoyable experience. The management and the directions the project veers according to their leadership is the most difficult thing about working here.
Free lunch/snacks/drinks, flexible start/end time, great computers
Google is truly amazing - like any job it has its pain points and it can be difficult to not feel lost at times in such a large company but the people are spectacular and provide an incredibly motivating atmosphere.

Fulfillment Lead (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 25, 2017
One of the best companies out there. Although I was there a short period of time, I feel I advanced my knowledge in my field tremendously. Everyone was friendly and willing to help. My mind was constantly being challenged and continuously looking to learn, grow, and take in all I could in a fast paste environment.
Field Operations Associate / Specialist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 22, 2017
Recommend for anyone that wants to see a fully functional company that regards its employees as family. It was only a contract job, but well worth all the travel and greeting of people to do the job I was tasked. Would do the job again if it was offered.

Working for Google was an amazing experience. The environment was very relaxed, friendly and fun. The environment there felt more like a summer camp than an office. They definitely know how to take care of their people.

Warehouse Operator (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 12, 2017
Working in the warehouse was fast paced because your trying to fill customers orders by locating each item in the warehouse. It demand that you come to work ready to move around looking for items, and with another associate working together to take care of the customer. Most money I ever made through a job, weekly.
Interaction Designer (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 11, 2017
I found working at Google to be very challenging and rewarding. It wasn't perfect, but the pros outweighed the cons. I appreciated working with a stellar group of people from wide-ranging backgrounds. Google's dedication to users and scientific principles helped changed the way I do my job significantly. If you are ambitious I highly recommend it. I found it both hard and fun.
Finance (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 11, 2017
Google by far has the best benefits if you are a perm employee. They hire a lot a contractors to do the grunt work and hire college grads to manage people who has no experience doing it. This makes it very uncomfortable for everyone. Professionalism is lacking by the college grades which is expected since they are managing people when they had no prior work experience doing it. They give you a lot of perks but it comes with a price. But overall, the benefits are great so I can't complain to much. =)
UX Production Designer (contractor) (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 10, 2017
Drove from SF to Mountain View, 1.5 hours each way, to avoid travel sickness on the shuttle (which costs $1.50 for contractors). Lots of free food everywhere and lots of nice places to hang out outdoors or in a cafe or in a nook. Generally quiet atmosphere indoors. Everyone looks happy. Very casual and diverse.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 10, 2017
Benefits were good and it felt nice to say, "I work for Google." But outside of that, I didn't really like my time there. The problem was mainly management. I had a good manager at first, but as per usual, that changed and I had to deal with the team lead directly. We didn't get along too well, so I only worked there a year and I'm not really sure what I have to show for it.
Sr. Instructional Consultant (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – May 9, 2017
I worked at Google as a contract employee for 18 months. The work environment is fantastic, the benefits (free food and drink) are unbelievable, you get to work with some of the smartest people on the planet.
