Current Employee - Program Manager in Mountain View, CA
Current Employee - Program Manager in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I know that as a single person I have enough to save, invest and live off of plus there is always room to pitch and execute on your own entrepreneurial ideas.

Cons

The mirage of work/life balance is really convincing. Bosses do not model balance and climate has become selfish and brutal over the past 7 years. Definitely embarrassed to say that I work here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be Googley. Free, generous and whip smart. Always good humored and audaciously progressive.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO
