Current Employee - Corporate Operations Engineer in Mountain View, CA

Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

- Peers are sheer geniuses in their realm, very low amount of low performers
- Fun
- Great Start for college grads - pace is fast, learning is fast
- AWESOME annual bonus

Cons

- Middle management is very detached from work
- Everything is looked from a efficiency standpoint, and sometimes that cannot be done
- Indication (in ops groups) that decision is coming from the top down rather than bottom up as was tradition

Advice to Management

Re-review all of middle management in Corp Eng. and clean house! We're Google's IT and first line dog-fooders, at the very least empower us to do the right thing
