    Decent Salary / Horrible Environment

    Nov 3, 2019 - Network Analyst in Charlotte, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay is decent, but not what it used to be with the recent layoffs and cut backs.

    Cons

    It's a really uptight atmosphere. If you think you'd enjoy working at Google, you will not like it there. It's a sad place to work and all of upper management, have very little care or value of employees. I saw people with 20 years with the company, get dismissed with a week's notice, some with none. Like many companies, the employees are great, but "management" is feckless, and biased. It is the antithesis of what happy, tightknit family-run businesses are about.
