Fun Place To Work

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsGreat community and a great place to work. The benefits are top notch and the managers seem to generally care about the career future of their employees.

ConsWork is all about self-starting, for good or for bad. If you don't try and create your own projects or find things to do, you will end up doing the things no one wants to do. While this is good for innovation, it makes the first few months on the job suck, as you won't know enough about the baseline to innovate anything.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn finance, automation should be key. The analysts spend too much time doing things that a computer could take care of. Either purchase software to do some of the job or force internal engineering to develop new applications faster.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

My experience was that doing well… Advice to Senior Management: The company seems to be founded on the idea that if you hire smart people, you can run the company with a bottom-up, siloed strategy,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    Google Sales Organization Review

Google's core competencies… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
