Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

Pros

great products,
great colleagueas,
great culture,
great customers.
You really feel part of a family who is changing the world.
As account manager I had very good daily job, it was challenging and interesting for sure.

Cons

only sales career unless you have engineering degree
too much burocracy
very poor middle management
too much internal politics

Advice to Management

call customers, study online advertising, become expert in google's business, be business people, be more entrepreneurial. Sales teams management is absolutely crap, it s unbelievable how stupid they behave (they are not). They're never brave, never inspirational, just a bunch of useless burocrats who build a couple of reports per week about sales random fluctuations. Never seen such a bunch of clever people (they are) wasting their days doing useless and boring tasks or playing internal politics. I could never be a sales manager or even a team lead there, never.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Google as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Because of work hours flexibility you can conceive whatever plan you have in your mind. The team is energetic and competent...

    Cons

    The management and support is not willing to co-operate with contractors. They offer good support but not one to one either...

    Advice to Management

    For GOD sake come out with ways to be in touch with contractors....
