Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Mountain View, CA – July 9, 2015
Pros: free lunches and picnics, outdoor activities
Cons: short breaks, too congested rooms
Work environment was good. Punctuality at work was very much encouraged. Deadlines were met everyday and was mandatory to finish up work.management was very helpful and considerate. coworkers were friendly and cooperative. Lots of projects in specified amount of time. Work and play were both part of the job.
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.
Quality Control Operator (Former Employee), Mountain View, CA – July 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.

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

I learned to work in a Corporate Wellness – more... setting, training employees of Google according to the EXOS methodology and education I obtained by attending Arizona State University.

The hardest part of the job was finding effective ways to utilize my time during slow times. The most enjoyable part of the job was developing interpersonal relationships with the clients and co-workers I worked with. – less
