Getting a little bloated, but still a brilliant company.

Corporate Operations Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsGoogle has structured itself well to resist becoming 'evil' as it grows. That's not to say it doesn't - but it takes hold a lot slower than at other companies our size. There's a lot of importance placed on transparency, accountability, and technical acumen by the average employee.

ConsWhile everyone is allowed to question the company's decisions, senior management are getting better at dodging them. Making a career for yourself can be very difficult unless you are exceedingly brilliant. There are a lot of very, very smart people here.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
