Lead Technician (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAJanuary 14, 2019
Google culture is very fast paced, however they offer many great perks like the food, snacks and even weekly seminars that make it very easy to find the motivation to come to work each day.

Great Pay Horrible Management
Store Operator (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 12, 2019
In the beginning I loved working at Google Express but there are several layers of management you have to get thru in order for your problems to be solved. They over hire and cut back on everyones hours. They schedule employees based on how fast you work and if you know the store location. and if you live in another borough forget about working somewhere close to home and be prepared to hop from location to location. The job is so easy it just sucks that the management doesnt really care about their staff.
Pros
Paid lunch, unlimited vacation days
Cons

TVC Life sucks
Partner Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Silicon Valley, CAJanuary 11, 2019
Google is an amazing company, with lots of amazing perks... If you are a FTE or "Googler" If you are a TVC "contractor" then none of that applies to you. You are paid almost nothing and expected to do the same, sometimes maybe even more work than full time Google employees are expected to do. You may be given a day off because Google is off, but some of us don't get paid for those days. When you are working on a budget that is really hard some days (especially near the holidays) Work is very stressful at times and instead of finding ways to improve our work environment, they take more things away. But there are incredible benefits too like free food, snacks and drinks as well as full featured gyms and pools., and very flexible hours.
Pros
Free Food, flexible hours, gym, pool.
Cons
stressful work environment, low pay for work required.

Program Manager & Senior Strategist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 10, 2019
Working at Google is an exciting challenge. The environment and culture are all geared towards a team collaboration environment. There is a lot of positive peer pressure geared toward constant improvement, innovation, and growth. I was always encouraged to take reasonable and calculated chances, and not to be afraid of making mistakes.
Pros
Culture and work/life balance
Cons
you'd better LOVE to work hard.

Pros
free lunches

It's a company, but it's the best of companies. Great benefits, incredible people, approachable leaders, and fun products. There are issues - just search the news - but leadership cares about getting it right.
