I am a Noogler, joining as a DS-L4 in a month. I am asking Googlers and Xooglers on how I can manage to succeed at Google? How to have a smooth ramp up and reasonably quick promotion?

    Just be loud about hating conservatives and you'll be promoted quick.

    Focus on learning, contribution and making an impact, success will eventually follow. Don't focus on promo else you will never be happy.

      That is how I think about it, too. The promotion that comes after your effort and impact.
      May I follow with another question? How to have an impact, especially as a DS? Do I have to worry about the first of "48 laws of power"? I really hope not. That is the main reason I am joining Google.

      There is no generic formula, it depends on team and what area you are contributing to, keep an eye on any projects which has a good visibility of leadership.

      Please don't do Machiavellian shit like 48 laws of power. If you are liked you'll get promoted. It's not a meritocracy here.

      Great to know. I read until law 8 just to know how to survive. Some companies live by 48 laws.
