    Former Employee - Brand Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Google full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    So many highlights including: intelligent people, expansive budgets to accomplish your department initiatives, great perks and an amazing work environment overall. Everyone is highly driven and ambitious and when I came into work every day, I literally felt that energy as soon as I walked in through the door. People who excel in this company are self-starters and creative people that are able to think quickly and outside of the box.

    Cons

    upward mobility is stagnant. perks can make most complacent and satisfied with their role level for years with no title promotions.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's Google. But seriously, tons of cool stuff going on, and the ability to impact lives at scale. The work is challenging.

    Cons

    It's easy to get caught up in the multitude of emails, especially when working on teams that cross timezones. Work-life balance is something that you have to specifically think about.
