It was a good working experience. You get to meet new people and you get paid big bucks! Enough to afford normal things.

EmployeeWorked at Google in New York City, NY at the time of review.

What I like

My company is good and looking for new people to earn more money! We will be glad to accept new comers! All you have to do is sign up and apply for an interview and we will reach you back shortly. This job does come with perks and other things too

What I dislike

Some parts of the company that I disapprove of is that some people get fired for coming in late and they don't even get to elaborate on that reason why they were late so if I were you don't be late!

Suggestions for improvement

I would improve nothing because the company is already good

It's okay i guess
