Great place to work, stay out of Ops

Corporate Operations Engineer (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

Pros- Peers are sheer geniuses in their realm, very low amount of low performers
- Fun
- Great Start for college grads - pace is fast, learning is fast
- AWESOME annual bonus

Cons- Middle management is very detached from work
- Everything is looked from a efficiency standpoint, and sometimes that cannot be done
- Indication (in ops groups) that decision is coming from the top down rather than bottom up as was tradition

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-review all of middle management in Corp Eng. and clean house! We're Google's IT and first line dog-fooders, at the very least empower us to do the right thing

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
