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.

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.

A typical day at google is really hectic. Although you know you work for google, you never know when does the time pass by working all day. Excellent management and amazing co-workers and leaders. Hardest part of the job for me was to adjust my schedule as i was a full time student. the most enjoyable part of the job was the name where I worked itself "GOOGLE"
all facilities were provided like gym, lunches, dinner, campus etc Google is its own world within a world on earth

Sales (Current Employee) – North Carolina – February 28, 2016
You play the game you keep your job! Overall a decent company to work for if you are single. Very little work life balance. You can advance if you know how to say the right things and build the right relationships.

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.
