Great company with tons of benefits and a simulating work environment.

Advertising Technology Senior Associate (Current Employee) San Bruno, CA

ProsGoogle not only has amazing benefits including great health care/dental/vision, 401K contribution-matching, free food, gym, etc., but it provides amazing resources for skill-building. The company has an entire organization dedicated to providing in-house classes from everything to excel to presentation skills. The company also promotes its workers to bring their own ideas to the table and execute them no matter their level in the department.

ConsBecause there are so many bright people working at Google, it's difficult to stand out and get recognized for a job well done. There is a quota on promotions that can be given out each period, and there is lack of visibility on the criteria involved. There are a lot of lateral movement opportunities but not upward movement within a department.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
