    I have been working at Verily Life Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Big tough problems to solve that touch on every aspect of research and healthcare
    * Unafraid to partner deeply with other organizations to create change
    * Very smart & driven people
    * Flat org -- lots of opportunity to work with executive team
    * Andy Conrad is all-in trying to fix a broken system that impacts the lives of everyone. It's not easy, linear, or for the faint of heart and Andy doesn't spend much time sugar-coating the challenges.

    Cons

    * Big tough problems to solve that touch on every aspect of research and healthcare
    * Trappings of a big comfortable company (Google) combined with a startup's need to build multiple transformative businesses make it difficult for some to focus
    * Hiring process can feel tuned for a 100K company and not a startup
    * Some people joined Verily thinking they were joining Google
    * Easy to work around the clock -- you need to set limits

    Advice to Management

    * Connect with employees on a personnel level
    * Continue to invest in developing talent, both the individual contributors and managers

    Product Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Verily Life Sciences.

    Interview

    Standard interview process - recruiter via phone, followed by 1 team member via phone, and then a face to face with the whole team via Google Hangouts.
    Answered all the questions, seemed like a great fit, as I was working for a rival company. The hiring manager was happy with my experience and background.

    Never heard back from the recruiter, when I reached out got an automated email back saying I was moving forward and that was it. I pressed further and asked for feedback, this time the recruiter replied with the job is now on hold and we will reach out when it reopens.

    Absolute shambles of a process from the recruiter - reached out prior the end to ask if I could send a thank you note to the team for their time, no reply. No actual interview with HR or Recruiter in the final stages either.

    Guess what? - the job is now back on the market, no contact from the recruiter even though I passed through the stages.

    Word of advice - the staff seemed stressed and rushed during the interview process and when asked about the work/life balance they visibly strained at answering the question. I would avoid this place, seems Googler's get first dibs at Life Science here, even though they have no experience in Life Science.
