Google Fiber Operations (Former Employee) – Various – July 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 .
Operations Specialist II (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – May 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.
Excellent culture which offers many physical conveniences
Environment is too politically oriented and slow paced
Collaborative, motivating and exciting place to work

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.

It was an experience and i learned a lot about leadership and creating a positive work environment. I got to manage 30-40 for the southeast region and travel all over and work for one of the biggest companies in the world. I loved it. And will miss it
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – August 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.
Field Operations Associate / Specialist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 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.

Field Operations (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 21, 2017
I was contracted on a project at Google by Adecco. I was a remote worker and travelled 75% of the time. Its only a two year contract so it doesn't leave a lot of room to grow. The project I was under seemed very disorganized and not at a level I would have expected from a company like Google. This may be due to the fact that many of the moving parts are contracted but I witnessed a lot of issues due to poor communication and management. I enjoyed my time there for the most part. The job was very basic and monotonous but the pay was decent plus extras.
