    I have been working at Google

    Pros

    The culture. Specifically, the way my coworkers treat me, the way my manager treats me, the policies that affect me, the work itself, and the opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    The noise and density of the Mountain View offices. I'm introverted, and I have to use earplugs or work from home to work effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd greatly appreciate more space and more support for working alone.

    Current Employee - SMB Services Intern in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

    I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Google opens jobs for better jobs in the IT industry. Linkedin, Facebook, Baidu, they all pay more.

    Cons

    I was interviewed to work with SMB Services which means you will talk 4 hours daily with angry customers on the phone. It´s a call center. That´s not why I graduated from Brazil´s best university for. Stupid job and extremely stressfull. Bad management, mine was only worried about her organic dietary restrictions and keeping her hair blond instead of providing support for her employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot rely on the name Google forever and keep doing bsusiness led by stupid recently graduated from University employees.

    Best place to work. They have so many benefits, allow you to work 20% of time on your own projects, can bring dog to work, food court, exercise so much to love.
