    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    lots of my friends have been laid off from several startups, there is just too much hype in startups, the only stable startups are those who have raised a series C or over 100M , any other start up is too risky
    stability at google

    Cons

    no cons to working here

    Community Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    This was through a recruiter for a short-term contract so the hourly rate was already worked out and there was no room for negotiation.

    My recruiter submitted me and within two weeks a Hangouts interview was set up. It was about 30-40 minutes. The hiring manager was professional, considerate and asked me relevant questions.

    I was surprised to get the offer by Hangouts but I took it. Google at the top of my resume helped a lot after the fact, too.
