nothing to say really

Nothing to say really, a typical day at work a job is a job and you do things. Work hard play hard. Go in and get the job done. Management is cool. hardest part is travel

Would you recommend working at your company?

Help people considering your employer make a good choice.

I love it!

Working at Google has been great. It's challenging working in IT, but if you do the work then it's rewarding. The people you meet and learn from are extraordinary.

It’s a toxic corporate carousel.

A lack of full influence or control of quarterly quotas/goals, due to a hierarchy power struggle between middle and upper management. A lack of resources, and almost a complete absence of structured training that prepares an E.D.U consultant for the demands of the role/software programs/processes utilized.

Pros

It’s a steady paycheck. Nothing more or less.

Cons

Everything else.

Fun place to work.

Great place. Great opportunities and a lot of advancement. There are great managers that want to help and know how to find answers for questions you have.

Good pay, low PIP culture. But still very stressful, as everyone is an overachiever and lot of times you feel people fight for nothing

Work is stressful with a lot of deadlines. Great pay and low PIP culture though. Just feels it becomes a place in which a lot of smart people gather together and try hard to overwork and fight with each other for nothing.

This is my dream job

Everything about Google is absolutely amazing. I couldn't be more grateful to be a part of this organization. Google looks for employees who are self-driven, fun, creative and outspoken. ... In addition to the right skills, recruiters are looking for a personality that fits well with the Google work atmosphere. Happiness Is Key. Human resource is known as “People Operations” at Google to make it sound more friendly

Pros

free lunches, sleeping space, co working space

Awesome place to work, but your mileage may vary

There are a ton of interesting things to work on, but the overall impact of what you do might vary. A lot of the work feels very inconsequential, and if you want to make a deep impact and understand things end to end, this is a difficult place to be, because things move so fast and so many things change all the time.

Not a great place to work

I'd not like to work for this company. It's all about numbers and management is always pushing employees to the edge with unrealistic deadline and poor support.

Pros

Free gym, Good healthcare

Cons

Poor advancement, Bad pay based on work load
Was this review helpful?

Good worklife balance to pay ratio

Good internal tooling makes speed to production potentially good, but management is a bit slow. Promos not as fast as at FB/Meta, but WLB can make up for that.

Pros

Free food, great pay, wlb

Cons

Management could be slightly better
