Google was a great place to work, but at the end of the day it was just a job.

Senior Strategist (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsGreat pay, amazing benefits, great perks, and stock options.

ConsNo work life balance even though they talk about it a lot. 85% of my team were single, and they worked 70+ hours a week. If you wanted to put out the same amount of work, and meet the expectations of your manager you had to do the same.

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