questions to all the Googlers out there:

what do you think are Google’s greatest strengths and weaknesses as a company/corporate culture?

what do you think of senior management?

on a scale of 1-10, how bureaucratic is Google relative to other large tech organizations?

do you feel like hard work is consistently, predictably rewarded, or is allocation of internal credit heavily politicized and uncorrelated with those who created / executed initial insights?

which of the below best describes the Google work culture in your experience?

      Is “hard working performance driven environment” an attribute of amazon? Lol. Nothing gets done in Alexa and Retail...

      Oh don't sell yourself short lol Retail managed to completely eliminate ethics and (basically) include profit as a variable in Amazon's own search engine

      It doesn’t utilize that variable very well then, given it rarely ever turns a profit

      Lol it just recently added that I think. There was a long article in WSJ about it. The search team was totally against it but the retail team insisted

    >what do you think are Google’s greatest strengths and weaknesses as a company/corporate culture?

    Strength: TC and nice perks + brand name on your resume
    Weaknesses: politics. Get good at it, if you're gonna work for a big company. Also apparently they descriminate against white / asian males.

    >what do you think of senior management?
    Mostly SJWs... Who the f knows, SWEs don't interact with "senior management"

    >on a scale of 1-10, how bureaucratic is Google relative to other large tech organizations?
    10

    >do you feel like hard work is consistently, predictably rewarded,
    No, neither is at any company that has more than 1000 employees.
