Product Support Specialist-TeleNetwork (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – February 2, 2016
Great company! Great to their employees! Best part was by far the perks of working at Google. The food was amazing. Employees were always nice. The environment was always warm and inviting. Coming to work everyday was exciting and fun!

Sherwin-Williams has good pay and decent benefits however the work-life balance is poor, management is poor, and it trickles down. Every single manager in the district was not happy and the best ones have left or will leave to pursue much better opportunities. Good first job out of college.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – January 19, 2016
Working at Google was an amazing experience. I learned within my role and got to network with many professionals as well as enjoy the festivities the company provided to their employee's. I loved teamwork mentality and transparency within teams.
Very flexible, open, friendly culture
As a contractor, not all full-time employee's will come across friendly
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – January 11, 2016
I had fun working with side by side with my Executive Chefs, Chefs, and Sous Chefs learning and growing. My Co-Workers were great and fun to work with. The main move for me is to grow and continue to learn from other Chefs. With also a possibility of moving up.

Google is an amazing company, thoroughly devoted to insuring that its employees are both happy and productive. Free lunches, standing desks, fun events and great training opportunities. There's a palpable, youthful energy buzzing throughout the building, and that made it unique.
Great company - chaotic and disconnected division/team
Curriculum Manager/Training Program Manager (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – December 16, 2015
I worked for the Google Technical Consumer Support (gTech). While Google promotes several laudable characteristics - support for the individual, encouraging innovation and independent thinking - I did not witness this in my environment. There was much in-fighting - often erupting in open fights and crying. It was a very stressful and unpleasant work environment.
Great compensation package, on-site perks (lunches, massages, team events)
You'll need those perks because you'll never go home, team in-fighting, poor work/life balance
LBR Rep (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – December 7, 2015
Canvas local businesses to find the following: Type of business, services offered, hours of operation, and current picture of the store and update/upload the information to Google via the LBR interface. Then approach the business owner/manager to offer free listing on Google Maps. If they were interested then leave them a card explaining that they would receive a postcard in the following week that would have a phone # & web address and a conformation code. They owner/manager would call or log on enter the confirmation code; Then confirm and/or edit the information that I had uploaded as to take "ownership" of the Google Map listing of their business
Business Development Lead (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 4, 2015
Google is a great place to work if you want job security and a high paying salary. Your team is usually a 6:1 ratio with manager. However given Google's growth, the company is increasingly becoming large and corporate minimizing innovation in the business unit of Google.
