"Great place to work with a lot of perks. Low compensation since everyone wants to work there. Google has the ability to pay low because they can. Free food! They have so many perks that they don't want you to ever leave. Lots of positions available though very hard to get in. Overall, I would recommend this company."

"I worked in Google for more than 4 years but after that I feel that I should change my position because I need to gain more experience in Facebook and btw, if you work in Facebook you will get a good salary (twice)."

"I worked at Google as a contractor for 2 years. Overall the experience was good. It was a bit of a culture shock as I came from a traditional suit and tie company."

"Highly contentious environment with many skill building opportunities, and few, very valuable collaboration opportunities. Management was very green, and appreciation for programmer effort, which only changed after systemic flaws were uncovered."

"They installed a gym at the office just because I requested one. I proceeded to use it every day rather than making people feel awkward, as I did yoga or Ido Portal method near the foosball tables. In many ways, it was a nice atmosphere."

"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."

Student Ambassador

"This is an outreach program organized by Google. It's 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."

"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 answer all the questions no matter what, in your original and unique way."
