Finance Manager (Former Employee), Mountain View, CAAugust 30, 2013
Working at Google was refreshing but also shows that your life is suppose to be dedicated to work. They offer almost any amenity that you will possibly need so as to keep you working. All in all that isn't a bad thing but have a balance of work and life is paramount if you don't want to burn out. My position was transitionary so I did not experience – more... the full intensity of the work life, but I was around it and could see the affects.But, there too are great perks and I did experience those! – less

Pros: free meals, vacation, atmosphere
Really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and attitude that showed sparks of creativity that would blind the unexpected.

My favorite part was looking around and seeing the worker ants that keep the largest company in the world running and seeing that they are just like you and I. – less

Operations Technician/Data Security Lead (Current Employee), Lenoir, NCAugust 13, 2013
Pros: free food, benefits, time-off
Cons: promotions are steep
Working at Google's Data center was a crazy rush to keep numbers high and downtime low. Working at Google HQ is a different beast. YOU have more time and control of your day and how you spend your time, but the pressure to get projects completed is higher. THe hardest part of this company is the promoting process. It seems very clique-ish.

Program Manager, Google Apps and Chromebooks (Former Employee), Mountain View, CAAugust 5, 2013
I can't imagine a better large company. The typical day involved arriving when you wanted with no one looking over your shoulder. You learn how to get things done without people reporting to you in a very flat organizational structure. Interpersonal skills are very important. Co-workers are helpful and smart, but also very busy with their own projects. – more... The hardest part of the job is reaching consensus across a multitude of stakeholders. The most enjoyable part is feeling like you are doing important work and not being stressed about it. – less

During a typical day at work I greet new and interesting interview candidates. I guide them to their interviews on time and make sure they have a positive experience at Google. I also make sure that interviewers show up, and If needed, I trouble shoot video equipment for video conferencing.
