People are kind but professional and productive.
Several lunch menus, and even a lobster bake once a year!
All amenities are open 24h/7
It's even OK to sleep on the premises

Incredible, Inspirational Place to work
Great place to work, incredible employees, great management team, great offices. However, it is a relatively flat company and can be difficult to quickly move up.

I couldn’t be at a better more inclusive company
I love the experience of learning something ew every day. Constantly on the edge of your seat in the uncomfortable zone where growth happens. I have grown more personally and professionally in the past year than the previous five years combined. On the front line of new cutting edge technology. It’s an honor to work there and couldn’t be more grateful for the experience.

Fun Place to work, if not Temp
Great People. Work environment is awesome. If Temp, you are very expendable and they let you know that with the pay amount. Others around the job have the sense of wanting to work and include you. Everyone seems to help everyone, and that is always a great place to work.

An extremely challenging, principled and rewarding workplace.
Google was a great place to work, but it does have some issues.
It was very rewarding, challenging and exciting.
There are however some built-in drawbacks to the heavily engineering-influenced culture.
The culture was very competitive and at times this could provide conflicting incentives for team members when working to move a project forward.

Google has a lot of benefits, from free food to massages to employee development. The environment allows you to live on campus as needed. You also get to work with bright colleagues.
ConsLong commute if you live in between SF and Mountain View

10X thinking, incredibly smart people to work with, but also collaborate, strong mission.
Best company I have worked for, best jobs I have had in my career. Google distinguishes itself as a company who thinks and acts "10X". The average Googler is incredibly smart and driven. Googlers are generally quite collaborative (we filter out prima donnas).
Google is a company that is led with high moral character, and principle-based leaders, more so than any company I have worked for.
ProsWork at a company that is influencing the entire industry, and helping society overall.
ConsChallenging work/life balance.
