"gTech is the worst place to work in Google. Stay away from gTech ads especially. Unless you want to reorg every six months and have to explain what you do to a manager who doesn't care"
"Working for Google is pretty awesome in most ways. They make it easy to get stuff done and really strive to build a positive work environment. Everyone is really smart. The downside is that you are a cog in their machine. Most people work on a tiny piece of a tiny piece of the system. Most of the managers in my group are decent, but I'm stuck with a not-so-great one. Being a contractor you get a lot of the day-to-day perks that the employees get, but you are shut out of certain events. I usually don't miss it, though. I get more perks as a contractor at Google than I've gotten as regular employee at other jobs."
"This is an outreach program organized by Google. Its main purpose is to find talented college/university students who are passionate about technology and are knowledgeable about it. These students will be picked to become Google representatives (not employees) in their respective colleges/universities with the following responsibilities: Promote, teach and help adopt Google Services to students, teachers and businesses. Become point of contact between Google and those mentioned above. Organize events inside your respective colleges/universities to either promote the services, teach how to use them or at least use Google's services to help minimize costs and make the event a success. You are there to learn and show the student body that Google is more than a technology company."
"Excellent opportunity for open source developers."
"Google Summer of Code was an excellent opportunity and programming experience as a college student."
"I've been working in Google LA for summer internship. People are all nice to work with. You can learn a lot when you study all the internal tools. You can also balance your life and work. I really recommend working in Google!"
"Personally I did use The Impossible Interview App for iOS to learn and prepare for the Google Interview Process, and most of the questions where in the app. For me it was very helpful to see the questions and from then on I prepared my answers in my head so they would be more unique and original. I would say to anyone that applies at Google just stay calm and try to answers all the questions no matter what in your original and unique way."
"I love this company."
"Google has been rated the number one place to work by Fortune for several years in a row. I agree."

"The company is fun, has a good environment and great people. It's a great place to learn new things. It helps to be interested in the industry."
"The company is very large and therefore, experiences great variance in quality of employees, but also of teams. Eng and PM organizations tend to be disruptive innovation-focused, while non-eng very operational (mostly factory-like)."
