    I have been working at Waymo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work as an engineer, due to the likely large impact of self driving on the world, the many cutting edge problems that need to be solved, many awesome colleagues, great software engineering tools and infrastructure shared with Google, healthy collaborations with other research teams within Alphabet, leading to a fast pace of innovation, particularly in AI.

    Cons

    I'd say we're experiencing some growing pains as we try to scale everything up.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waymo (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online through referral, took about a month for a recruiter to contact me. Had a recruiter call and then technical phone screen a few weeks later - the recruiter ghosted on me after the initial phone call and never heard back after the TPS. Please give candidates a simple one sentence follow-up so they know if they are still in the hiring pipeline or not.
