What I like about the company

The reason whythanks for asking about my experience working with my concrete company Google. Google is one of the highest-ranking companies far is on the Fortune 500. It appears to be one of the company with a cutting-edge technology innovation as well as job security with those who are hardworking dedicated and are highly motivated. The highest purest things are companies looking for a. Is very ambitious individuals hard-working determined to succeed and dedicated to the craft and the job. However most companies will take advantage of you what less incentive if you're not at a cutting-edge job. Majority of these jobs do value those who are hard-working must inspire those who continue to keep excellent work. Google is the leading innovation and innovator in my opinion when it come to job invasion security and new ways to earn and find my. You can do our job freelance jobs contract jobs is play any words that Google will employ people I ever we know it's companies as well as Amazon but Google continue to be study climbing and will remain at the forefront of the industry. When it comes to phones world wide Web YouTube Google and Google chrome. Remains one of the top apps and ad agencies you can work as well as as since would have done for YouTubers bloggers contact creators and if continue to press the angle. I wonder if Google was a Fortune 500 company that only major company that deals exclusively electronics. I use Google home all the googles products TVs that production is Jack a name a few. We are definitely looking for this. I'm trying to figure out why would a company that goes to the extreme to make sure that everyone is comfortable. And feel wanted and accepted very few companies and specially from a African American male a few companies open their doors for us and allow us to succeed without bias but very bad is tactics Google seem to be one of the company so far that I did that are unbiased when it comes to African women and people of all walks of

What I dislike about the company

Companies that do bias reviews of people's profile that is what I'm looking forward towards the dose for looking for the people who are as dedicated motivated as me

  • Google really does feel like a family, and I have the most respect for everyone that I've been able to work / hang out with at Google. Everyone is extremely intelligent, kind, humble, and just filled with integrity. Also, everyone is passionate about what they do. One thing I thought was weird about me, is that I love to code. I'll work 8 hours coding, and then come home, and code on personal project for another 6. Other people at Google really have the passion for code, and either do it because they still have the time, or understand it. And not just code, people at Google are always trying to learn and perfect their craft, and it is awesome!

What I like about the company

Working at Google was magical in the ways I did not think it would be, and awesome in the ways I did. I personally was looking forward to all the free food, cool projects, and vast amount of learning from writing production code. But what I loved the most were my fellow Googlers, the passion for code, the environment for learning, and the amazing memes. I've been telling anyone who has asked, 'Google is like a Disneyland for developers'. And not in the sense that you can ride around on a conference bike, eating ice cream and edible gold. It is the amount of talented developers, and awesome projects that really help you spread your wings and grow in a wonderland of interesting and fun work. I definitely feel that I've grown at least 10x as a developer, and met people that I am grateful to have had the chance to work with.

What I dislike about the company

The rent near the company is insane, and it's almost impossible to buy a home out there these days. On top of that, I realized I love Long Beach, CA. After moving to Seattle, and not enjoying living there (though I love to visit), I thought it might be the same. Especially since I heard most of the bad parts from my buddies who moved from the bay to Long Beach, to escape the rent, and the bustling lifestyle of SF. Though, from the advice from my mentor, I decided I should definitely give it a chance.
