Not as liberal as considered to be
Google Partners Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Greece27 September 2018
It goes without saying that it is a place where you have access to an ocean of information and it is up to you to what extent you will develop yourself. Nevertheless, although you are given the freedom to express yourself, the final result always coincides with your Manager's/Director's opinion without any freedom for discussion.

Great environment for learning from one of the most talented people I've worked with, but at the same time very competitive and fast paced. Make use of extra time to developer relationships outside your org!

FACILITIES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Belgrave House14 August 2018
As on a normal day, your security pass is checked in at the front desk upon arrival to ensure that its properly activated (for temporary workers) everyone greets with a smile saying good morning as we all have breakfast together in one of the dining rooms.
During my time at Google, i managed to learn different ways of working. for example working the same tasks but in different ways due to the difference in employees working there and how they get things done.There was no correct way to do things but rather finding a way that suited you to do things.
The culture within the workplace was an amazing experience. The different types of food on offer for breakfast lunch and dinner. The level of pressure wasn't like other workplaces. Although many tasks were required to get done.
The hardest part of the job, was adapting to the pace of the workplace, everything was fast paced but after some time it became the normal pace of working.

Brand Representative (Former Employee) –  Edinburgh3 July 2018
I didn't work with Google directly, but through an agency, so the possibility of moving up or sideways in Google was impossible. Still, I enjoyed the technology and the trendy uniform, which I get to keep.

Productive and Great working atmosphere
Sales & Marketing Executive - Permanent (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire22 May 2018
Typical day would be starting the day off at the gym to get the day started, arriving in to work early and organise my working day with which accounts to review in what order, responding to urgent email enquiries, set a personal target of achieving new accounts and making sure I left my self time for breaks and lunch.
The management would be very helpful when needed for assistance and were very hands on.
The culture in the work place was very laid back, the pressure of achieving targets was always there but every week it was individual responsibility to hit their targets as there would always be an incentive for the top performers. so motivation levels were always there.
The hardest part of the job was delegating and the most enjoyable part of the job was coming to work everyday.
Pros
Brilliant Incentives to be won
Cons
Long working hours.

good place to start
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London24 March 2018
fun place to work.
compensation is competitive.
However, London is not good for family.
housing, nursing, and education fee will eat all benefit.
£120k in London is even less than £60k in other cities.

Google Inside Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  London4 March 2018
Work hard and smart get rewarded. Please note I work via a vendor. Sometimes you feel there is no clear structure as things change/evolve constantly. It is a place where real talent is recognized.
