Frustrating, bureaucratic, impersonal

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsYou have awesome, competent coworkers. The challenges are huge and you have unique opportunities that are only available at Google. The compensation and benefits are excellent.

ConsBlind allocation: Your initial assignment may have nothing to do with your interests or experience, and policy is that you must stay in that assignment for 18 months before you can transfer (though there are exceptions). Google's success makes it difficult to criticize; "How can we be doing it wrong if we're making this much money?"

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of blind allocation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
