    There are literally 1000’s like you and me on Blind. Why do you honestly think anybody cares or that you’re special enough for an ama.

      I’m sure people in their early career would like to know OP’s experience at G. Don’t understand the negativity.

      For all those saying this has been done so many times on Blind...
      1.) Everyone has a different experience. I've read posts that were majority good or bad about every FAANG company on here. It helps give perspective.

      2.) A lot can change in a year or two. I don't want to read AmA's just from 2018 or 2017.

      If it's a medical massage, then no tip. You don't tip your doctor 🙂

    Really hard for me not be skeptical about this post or make a sarcastic remark. Google worship is definitely a thing on Blind and it's not really the OP's fault.

      What I’m annoyed by is the <2yoe (no offence to op), nearly any meaningful question that isn’t about fanboy/girling over google is very likely to be way above ops pay grade, which means the conversation is going to be entirely vacuous.

      Right that too, it makes this whole sentiment seem far more naive

      Ah, yes, I love that Google arrogance. Keep quietly casting your judgements in the dark.

    Came here to witness the dick riding, I was not disappointed. Blind is an echo chamber for google worship, and this post is a pretty good example of that. Cheers!

    When did you start feeling so great about working at Google that you thought you should come on blind and do an AMA for others?

      It's annoying when people dm you rather than someone willingly giving it out.

    What happens if you refuse to administer technical algorithmic interviews on new candidates? Is this a mandatory part of your job description?
