Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAJuly 22, 2018
I enjoyed every minute working at Google. They really promoted equality and work life balance. They really care about your career and offer so many classes for you to acquire the skills you are lacking to perform better in your current and future roles.

Good to be there
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAJune 21, 2018
Lot of learning as an outsider and let everyone learn new tools to manage the work place. No end to learning and plenty of opportunities for growth in the organization.

Management protects poor managers
Program Manager - Vendor Solutions (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAJanuary 16, 2018
Managers protect other managers and sometimes hire people just like themselves, this is against the idea of diversity.
I worked with vendor managers and vendors and was able to see a larger landscape of initiatives and the scope was tremendous.
Pros
awesome technology and perks
Cons
advancement if you come in at too low of a level

Amazing company!
Program Manager, Education (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 13, 2017
Google is an incredible place to work. They have every perk you could imagine. However, it is a huge company and that's definitely not for everyone.

Overall a good place to work
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CANovember 9, 2017
Great benefits, great people, innovative projects. A self-starting culture that runs like a large startup. Hardest part of the job is getting overwhelmed with multiple projects in a core role while juggling passionate side projects.

Incredibly smart, talented and amazing people
Program Manager (Contractor) (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CASeptember 12, 2017
Being a contractor at Google has it's downside for sure. Management views you as disposable, you're not afforded the obvious benefits of full time employees and you can't remain at the company for longer than 2 years. Google is a fast moving machine and I was afforded the opportunity to work on a huge variety of projects with a LOT of autonomy.
Pros
free food, flexible work hours, easy commute and Google buses
Cons
TVCs are not viewed as potential full time employees; they are a dime a dozen and easily replaced

Dependent on management
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAMay 4, 2017
Great benefits, great pay, incredibly smart coworkers, but lacking in direction. Many similar products overlapping, no clear focus. Great opportunities for movement and/or advancement.
