The grass is NOT greener
Google Fiber Operations (Former Employee) –  VariousJuly 26, 2018
Google Fiber was far removed from big Google, not just in business, but in culture, opportunity, and leadership. It was a great learning opportunity, but go in with your eyes wide open and pragmatic expectations .

Fun work place with stocked kitchens.
Field Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 14, 2018
The workplace culture within the office has a very unique atmosphere. Not everyone there is preforming the same tasks. You have the software engineers that know various coding languages , the sales team that handles Googles advertisements and marketing strategies, and lastly the vendors and contractors that are employed for various projects and also work in Office Management.

The most enjoyable part of the job are definitely the amenities that come with the office. There is a gym on site along with a trainer who teaches classes at different times and provides excellent advice for your personal fitness goals.

Here is where things get a little complicated. As a contractor/vendor, you get office access just like the Google full time employees . However your upper management is normally outsourced through other companies,(Googles clients) and for that reason, it becomes difficult to insure yourself job security.
Pros
free lunches and stocked kitchens
Cons
Very Heavy on micromanaging. Clocking hourly activities in increments of 15 by manual input.

Lot of creative freedom. Always something to work on or improve. Great place to grow and connect with others. Work life balance has always been a key factor with jobs for me, and Google delivers.

They are missing the big picture
Operations Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAMay 16, 2018
The company is technologically innovative but supports a very left wing liberal environment that does not allow people outside of that political spectrum to feel uncomfortable. Additionally, there are too many politically correct initiatives that often roadblock opportunities for persons not meeting the criteria.
Pros
Excellent culture which offers many physical conveniences
Cons
Environment is too politically oriented and slow paced

Good Job, but not so good working for Adecco
Field Operations Associate (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 23, 2017
Working for Google is wonderful, but when you have a middle man such as Adecco it makes things very difficult in your work. Google is a great company and this opportunity is one to always remember.

Operations Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CASeptember 1, 2017
There are really great perks and you feel like you are part of a large company but I found that the full-time employees treat you differently. Like you are less. It makes it hard to feel like you are valued.

Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAAugust 4, 2017
Google is a phenomenal place to work, there is no doubt about it. The management is nothing but supportive, but due to the caliber of folks they bring on for non-mangement roles, be ready to compete as a small fish in a big pond.

Great Job
Field Operations Associate / Specialist (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 22, 2017
Recommend for anyone that wants to see a fully functional company that regards its employees as family. It was only a contract job, but well worth all the travel and greeting of people to do the job I was tasked. Would do the job again if it was offered.
Pros
Learning about more about Google
Cons
Travel, but I enjoyed traveling
