Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Google full-time for less than a year

Pros

1- Working with smart, helpful and decent people 2- Very felxiable in terms of management. Lots of freedom when deciding on technicall matters. 3- Free food is priceless, with COVID-19 you cannot... have it anymore. 4- Company payed >3K for work-from-home equipment. 5- Working with the cutting edge technologies and tools

Cons

1- Has their own ecosystem of build, test, track, etc. So you wouldn't learn tools that are used by the industry. 2- You are a small bolt in International Space Station.
