Good work-life balance and management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There is no micromanagement from my manager and I learned a lot from my colleagues. The work-life balance and free food here are good. There are many career growth opportunities and learning opportunities internally. And there are many events for holiday celebrations.

It was fun working here while it lasted

It was fun working here while it lasted, untl I got laid off last Friday with zero notice. Lot of great perks and advancement opportunities here, but the culture is certainly up or out.

Great company

Great people, systems, and benefits. Respect for work-life balance. Interesting and challenging work. Google succeeds by not taking short cuts, and by investing in its own people and systems.

Great team members but limited technical growth

A good place to work but not great. GRAD introduces some mess but it's needed to have a good quality of engineers otherwise too many coasters.Some engeineers are excellent and smart while some are lazy and coasting.The management depends on teams and mine is not lucky too much.


great WLB


Low comp, limited career growth

Great workplace

Working at Google is an amazing experience. The company culture is incredibly supportive and collaborative, and the tech is always cutting-edge. I have been able to work on some of the most challenging and rewarding projects of my career here. The benefits are top-notch, and the work-life balance is great. The office spaces are beautiful and inspiring, and the people are some of the most intelligent and creative I have ever worked with. I would highly recommend working at Google to anyone looking for a rewarding career.

I had the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology and participate in unique projects that pushed me to think outside the box.

Great benefits

I’ve been at google for a year and it’s been very comfortable. The cafes are fantastic and everyday I feel fortunate to have access to tasty nutritious food. Promo is slow though.
