How is frontend at Google?

Feeling frustrated doing frontend at my current company - historically I've avoided interviewing with Google because I don't associate them with a strong frontend engineering brand, but I'm at my breaking point and have found other large companies with strong FE eng brands either underwhelming or have a culture of poor WLB (e.g. Netflix)

    Airbnb is known for their FE work and known to be a great place in that area. Can you tell me more about why you are frustrated? I’m curious to hear

      Id argue they dont even use angular enough at G. Huge knock against it imo. React is better for that reason

    FE at Google is hard to get promo to 6 and above unless you are doing framework.

    They have lots of projects so I'm sure you'll find something nice.
