Great people, great perks, great environment

Software Engineer III (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Google

ProsAwesome food, great salary, wonderful coworkers. Lots of room for a self-starter to advance. Promotion can be quite rapid if you are determined and this is your goal. None of the cost/benefit approach to IT that you see at a lot of other companies.

ConsManagement can be clueless or absent at times. It can take a lot longer to get things done than you expect.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove blocks to rapid development and mandated platform use. Be more open in communication, particularly in explaining the reasons for controversial decisions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
