Great company

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of smart people, fantastic perks. I learned more here than I have anywhere else in my professional history. The older teams, such as infrastructure and apps have people that can teach you more in an hour than you learn many places in your entire tenure.

Consmost of the technology is inhouse, and google faces problems no one else does, so what you learn is non-transferable. Offices outside of Mountain View are treated very poorly.

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