What Employees Say
I have been working at Google for more than a year
Incredible people, hyper-cooperative environment, flexible schedules, lots of perks to allow for a strong work-life balance. If you are looking to gain knowledge or skills, this is a great place to... obtain mentorship and network if you actively seek it.
Just like any company, your experience depends a lot on your management & team- some teams are better than others. Additionally, as the business continues to change and expand, employee roles... sometime switch to reflect organizational need. As hiring requirements shifted, I was re-aligned to a different team on three separate occasions. (I'm currently on my 4th team in 2 years-- it's been great from a networking perspective and has allowed me to develop relationships & skills in a wide variety of areas although I do wish there was more continuity as the workplace is often ambiguous and apt to change.)
Advice to Management
Consider improving forecasting & headcount planning to require fewer organizational shifts & changes in personnel (not everyone likes moving from team-to-team like I have).
