Fun and interesting place to work
Data Specialist (Current Employee) –  Bothell, WASeptember 24, 2013
A typical day at my current position at Google starts by logging into my computer, checking email for updates or any other necessary information, and checking the Calendar for any meetings. Then moving data around using the proprietary software that they have made for us to provide data to engineers in Mountain View occupies the rest of the day. The coworkers and culture is the best thing about working here. The relationships you make, and the people you meet make coming to work an enjoyable experience. The management and the directions the project veers according to their leadership is the most difficult thing about working here.
Pros
Free lunch/snacks/drinks, flexible start/end time, great computers
Cons
Poor management, constantly changing priorities

Google Maps Driver (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIApril 20, 2018
You can start mapping after sunrise and map until sunset, so as long as the sun is up (minus some dusk/dawn parameters) you can get out there when you want, stop when you need to, and not have any micromanaging. Very fun and freeing position, but can be a little boring at times in a car all day by yourself. Very fun summer job.
Pros

Google/CDI was a great experience and I am eternally grateful for all the people I met and the exposure I got through this role. My contract ended and I'm currently looking for new opportunities!
