Great place to work

Test Engineer (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsGreat perks; food, gym, snacks, casual attire, fun environment, lots of company sponsored events

ConsLike any corporation really, management seems to only care about what they can put on their resume. But since this is the case pretty much anyplace you work, hard to really state it as a con. Towards the end however, management started to micromanage a bit too much. This took away from the casual environment that once made working at Google so great, since employees felt emboldened and had better output.

Advice to Senior ManagementLay off micromanagement.

    This place had great benefits (like free food) but they kept us isolated from the rest of the company.

    Master Flagger Staffing Specialist (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Google as a contractor for less than a year


    Pros: Flexible hours, take-home Apple laptop, great free food. Lots of parties, fitness centers, cars with drivers… Cons: Share a tiny office with multiple "cube-mates", no information shared with contract employees, difficult to know what you are… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
