Geo - Spatial Data Analyst II (Former Employee) – Bothell, WA – July 20, 2017
Great place to work at as a contractor, even better if you're fulltime. There's game room, yoga balls/mats, shower rooms, etc. Meals are provided which is nice. Google takes care of their employees, too bad for contractors, the work is only for a limited duration.
Learning and Development Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – July 20, 2017
As a contractor you don't reap full compensation and benefits as full-time, but you work with amazing people and enjoy considerate work life balance. Opportunities to network and explore within the company are present.
There lot's of nice perks, but not great if you're a contractor
Sales Operations Analyst (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – July 18, 2017
Let me start by saying Google has been good to me, even though I am a contractor. I've met many wonderful people and you certainly can't argue with the perks. If I were a fullitme employee I'm almost certain I'd be writing a stellar review, but as a contractor espite all the wonderful benefits and exciting work environment it is simply hard to shake the feeling of being undervalued. It varries from team to team, but unless your team has a high budget and less need (which is never the case) your wage is going to be just enough to live off of. The freedom to stay late and work overtime is sometimes given, and ultimately that is what one must do to even have a shot at a full time role. I have seen several good friends simply leave however once they were able to get the Google name on their resume and it is hard not to notice that one's talents are in demand and more valued elsewhere. I hope that the internal machinery of the company will catch up to the problem of top talen leaving the company, but I recognize there are resource constraints. Overall I have enjoyed working at Google and there is certainly nothing I'd rate as negative in terms of company culture.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Northgate, WA – July 17, 2017
management was terrible. they cared not for the individual and only numbers. sales sales sales. try selling Chromebooks like apple and Microsoft computers. try and hit these crazy high numbers that are unattainable for the market you are in. over a terrible experience.
nobody kept track of your presense in store, decent pay
Weekends off paid holiday, PTO but its hard to get your job done when there are so many levels of management to go through .

Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 11, 2017
Google is a great place to work if you're here full-time. As a contractor there is way too much work instability. Sometimes you're lucky to find great managers who are willing to sponsor you for a full time role. Other times, the management you're working with only sees you as a means to a result and you're left with just the name on your resume, looking for another job outside of Google.
Corporate Operations Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – July 4, 2017
I can say that it was a true blessing to work there for the short time that I did as an intern. Although sometimes it felt like I couldn't keep up (due to change in policy locking me out of essential documentation) I still greatly enjoyed doing my job. The people were friendly, compassionate and very hard workers. Not everything is rainbows however. The job culture is on the cutting edge of the progressive left ideology and the office was cluttered with pride propaganda and other sorts of images, not really caring if it made others uncomfortable or not.
Free breakfast and lunch and the teams are extremely supportive.
Have no qualms about getting political; will use their platform to push progressive propaganda.
