Facilitator (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – September 22, 2017
I was a contractor so my experience was different than employees. but, it was a great gig for me. Team was supportive, manager was great, and the perks awesome! the food alone was enough to make me love working there. I learned a lot, contributed to the team in big ways, and worked with amazing people!
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – September 22, 2017
From the first day of training, the experience of being there is very euphoric. The training was very fun and interactive with the other trainees and trainer. The first day of work was just how the trainer told us it would be; very fast pace, interactive with other co workers from Google, and laid back as well. Every day was the same but different, either pick customer order, pay for it with with Google credit card, or pack the orders' after they've been paid for. I learned how to keep that process moving fast and steady to where the customers get their orders fast and in one piece. It helped a lot, that that the leads, supervisors, and management from the main office were very kind and always willing to help. The hardest part for me, was the commute to work. I lived in Oakland and the job was in Hayward, which was three cities away. All the together the job was fun nd the people were some of the best of the co workers I've ever had.
Sales (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 21, 2017
This was a boiler room of sales reps that were petty and used scripted pitcheds to sell services to the public that were shady at best. I have to type in something to fill the balnk space so this is all i want to say.
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – September 21, 2017
Coming to work for a company that really wants you to have fun and excel while working was a dream for me. They really taught me about work ethics and enjoying your job while earning a decent pay check.
Engineering Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 19, 2017
Google isn't perfect but it almost certainly comes the closest of any company with dozens of thousands of employees.
A typical day as an Eng. Mgr. is filled with meetings, most of which are actually productive and interesting. The balance is usually spent reading and responding to email or looking through artifacts created by the team you manage.
I've learned how to organize and empower people to be productive and happy engineers. Upper management can often be ignorant of how things are in the trenches but there are excellent tools for bubbling up widespread discontent so it does generally get addressed.
The hardest part of the job tends to be staying abreast of all the change happening across such a gigantic organization, since you never know when something will impact you.
The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to the great coworkers, especially over daily free lunch.
QA Engineer (Vendor) (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – September 18, 2017
I liked to start work early. This was not a problem with my managers. I was a tester for Android Hangouts. We had sufficient equipment to do our jobs and very good supervision. Google's tools are easy to learn and use, for the most part and issues seem to get fixed in a reasonable amount of time.
I enjoyed working with our leads and Manager. They worked extremely hard getting us up to speed on changing features. Google's facilities are first rate! I would be very happy to go back on another Vendor job if the opportunity arises.
Free meals, drinks, great equipment, excellent work environment
Senior TV Partner Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – September 16, 2017
This review does not accurately represent Google since I am a vendor. I work under Accenture/VACO. As a vendor, you are not a "real" Googler and you are treated like an afterthought and the real Googlers are embarrassed by you.
Perfect Working Place to Interact with Decent People
Advertisement Quality Evaluator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 15, 2017
