Rough introduction followed by good job.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsWe are plied with small perks like espresso and organic vegetables.

ConsThe first month was very rough for me. I was given no real introduction to the company, and had to learn by fire. The security restrictions on your personal computer and network get in the way of productivity, and are generally frustrating. I need to have a field tech come to my workstation to install software that doesn't happen to be whitelisted.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take away sudo on linux machines. Make Noogler classes available to contractors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
