Worth going to Google Shopping?

How are the teams there? Heard complaints from a couple people, but their unhappiness stems from incompatibility issues with specific coworkers or having to work in Mountain View. I heard the pay is good though, better than what Sephora can offer.

    I'm in Google Travel, which is run by the same VP as shopping. I really like my team and the general leadership of the organization.

      To each their own. Impact of the company / org is a very minor factor in my decision making for jobs. It's primarily comp, technical challenges, career growth opportunities and WLB. I have zero interest in "changing the world."

      I think Google Travel is amazing and has great impact. Love booking my flights directly via Google.

      Google travel is awesome! The product is great - Google flights is hands down the best and I love it when I can book a flight right within Google without going to the airline site. It is also a huge financial opportunity and a growth opportunity for the company

    Things are messy and the direction is a bit scattered, but the people are good overall. WLB can be a bit hit or miss.

    All in all, I don't regret joining the team

    Better than Sephora for sure, but Google shopping culture is bad, individual ppl might be good but leadership.definitely lacks clarity. Can you ask for a different team?

    Worth going to Google but who uses Google Shopping when Amazon is the first thing that comes to mind. Remember even if you don't like Shopping after one year you can transfer.

      Op is in the merchandising role. Not necessarily transferrable skill set to rest of Google.

      Their issues aren't necessarily about the company/team but about specific individuals that they don't get along with. It's more personal, that's why I wanted to get feedback from others on Blind.

      Imo, with a few notable exceptions, the culture is made to support underperforming majority of engineers - and is more biased towards soft roles like holding meets and writing docs.

      Even the "engineering" work is really largely about QC of metrics and about being able to argue out your charge as a good change.

      Should have mentioned this in the OP. Most folks on blind are either Eng or Mgmt.
