Before I begin I want to say that this is not an "in your face" post for non-Googlers. This is a humble post form the bottom of my heart. I hope this post inspires some people.
I am so lucky and humble to be working at Google. People are so so nice. Always looking out for you.
When I worked at amazon no one cared if I spent extra effort into doing things. People spoke bad about each other. Managers had favorites.
At google people are really really smart. And they care so much about you. Free food does help a lot. Saves you lots of time. You don't have to wait for anyone to deliver your food. Bonuses are amazing. Your stocks start getting vested after first quarter. You can work on projects as you want.
Managers have regular 1 on 1 and they actually care. You ask anyone any question (even if it's simply on HTTP) there are no judgments. People (did I mention people?) are so amazing to work with.
Free gym onsite. Doctors, nurses, massages, kitchen sync, juice bars, mini kitchens.
It is such an experience.
It is just so humbling. Hiring bar is the same (or going up?) Only thing is people are practicing more nowadays. Over all it is amazing.
Thank you Larry and Sergey.
Who knows how long I'll be here but it is a humbling experience.
I'm thinking to leave and go back to my previous company whose employees were at least respectful to each other.
