    I have been working at Google full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The perks *are* as fantastic as you hear about, but the real benefits of working at Google are the caliber of people you have the opportunity to work with and the problems you get to solve.

    Cons

    It's a very large company, so there's all the normal large-company stuff you might have to deal with (e.g. being a cog in the system).

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Google (Seattle, WA (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Sent out resume in December, was contacted by a recruiter via e-mail a few months later in May. Set up a brief phone conversation with the recruiter, then a 1 day technical/ behavioral interview loop. Interviewers were supposed to ask specific questions about frontend engineering - ended up over-prepping based on experiences I've read, since no interviewers were asking questions that were any deeper than "do you understand how Promises work". Mostly ended up being focused on general algorithms questions. Recruiter had also shared Google-curated interview prep packets, which was a surprise. Loop went well, was able to meet with various technical leads for prospective teams, one in-person in Kirkland. Offer extended in June, accepted in July.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a string like "{a,b,c}d", give an algorithm that will expand this string, similar to how Bash expands strings ("ad bd cd").   2 Answers
    • You're running a silent auction, and you're making a program that will print out betting sheets for the various auctioneers. Some numbers are ambiguous when they're printed on a sign, and flipped upside down. Implement a function that determines if a line should be put underneath an auctioneer's number, to disambiguate it from other possible numbers. (e.g. 118 can be read as 811)   2 Answers
    • General javascript questions revolving around a basic understanding of async and ES6 Promises.   1 Answer
    • Using the first letter of each US state, and assuming that you can only travel between states consecutively, implement a program that would exhaustively generate all possible words that can be generated by starting at any given state, and "driving" between states. (e.g. Missouri - Oklahoma - Missouri spells "MOM")   1 Answer
