Google Zurich headcount

Feb 26 23 Comments

I've been told that I have to wait for headcount numbers to be finalized before continuing with team matching. Does anyone have an idea when the headcount is being finalized?

Edit: Applying for SWE L3. TC - N/A

    Waiting for headcount for CE at GCP as well. Will probably take London instead.

      I would take London over Zurich any day. Yeah, the pay is lower, but it's so much more interesting to live in than Zurich.

      The weather in London sucks though 😆

      London is definitely more exciting place to live. But it also really depends a lot on your goals. Zurich engineering department is way bigger from what I've seen and has more interesting (subjective I know) products.

      At this point I just feel like starting wherever! Europe is far better than north america (not TC wise obviously)

    I'm in similar position too. HC approved, team matching pending. It's such a long, tiring process!

      Agreed. Hopefully things start moving soon because it almost feels like I'm nagging my recruiter at this point.

      I felt the same. Glad to know that I'm not the only one sounding desperate. 😅

    Did you guys clear HC, or is it supposed to happen after team matching?

      Same thing happening here. Are there people who actually wait a year after passing HC and still don't get a match? I'm fine with waiting at current job.

    I can't speak to Zurich but know that this time of year head count for L3s can be hard.

      What's the best time of the year? And is it Google specific or others as well have a time of year?

    Possible at others as well the bottom line is it is near the end of new grad hiring for may. Just a high volume of people signing on lots of teams using up their head count, at least that's the case in the US. I imagine not too much different in Zurich.
