Satisfying work. Long hours.

Merchandising Manager (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsThe perks are clearly a huge win, but the best part of working at google is the autonomy you are given to to real, impactful work that is seen by millions of people.

ConsThe relentless pace often means that you have to get things out of the door before they are completely ready, and can do a number on your work/life balance (especially if you work in Android).

Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency down to lower levels around launches would be helpful. Also, forcing Android to act a little more like the rest of Google (in terms of personal health and well-being being a priority) would be great!

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