Decent pay and good development opportunities. The perks are really strong as well, things like free food, gym, courses and more. Not too much business travel

Organized and structured

There's a policy for everything. This may delay things sometimes but I've seen it as a benefit in my personal experience.In case you need clarifications, there's always a person to ask.

No complaints or negative comments overall. Largely enjoyed my time at the company and would be satisfied to work there again. Role was relatively non-descript.

Exciting Company, Great People, Awesome Benefits/Perks

Working at Google was a truly enjoyable experience for me. The company offers an outstanding compensation package, benefits, and perks. But what really stood out was the opportunity to work alongside enthusiastic and highly talented people from diverse backgrounds, tackling projects that made a meaningful difference in people's lives, and contributing to shaping the future in a significant way. Being part of such a remarkable organization, which values and rewards excellence, was truly rewarding. Not to mention, the generous compensation package definitely added to the appeal of working at Google.


high market comp package


top heavy, herd mentality

Nice packaging but a lot to unpack

Amazing benefits, food, fun activities, diverse people, high pay, but the management is absolutely oblivious to what the people are actually experiencing. Many people who work at Google are unhappy, but they feel guilty talking about this because of all the perks and benefits. However the atmosphere at work can get very toxic. People try to follow the “googliness” guidelines and end up being fake and not genuine. I was happy in the beginning, but closer to the end, especially after being mobbed by my manager I was happy to leave.

Inspirational people, outstanding facilities

Awesome culture of high performance. Even better food. High presssure environment but in a positive and supportive way. Learn from the best and once you go outside you will suddenly realise how much you have learned in a short period of time.

Fun place to work but career development is a little slow

The office environment is great, the products and tools to sell are extremely helpful and the client distribution is good. But as all huge companies, climbing the corporate ladder is not simple, it's slow and a little dependent of luck (landing the right clients and opportunities to fit the KPIs)

Great comp & bens, not as innovative as it used to be

Great people, great overall company mission. Comp and benefitss market leading. However, no longer innovative from a people perspective, rigid 3 days in office etc.

Loved working for the company!

Great psychological safety in the team, culture promoting work-life balance and also great benefits in the office. I definitely recommend working for this company.


Career progress might be a bit slow (since it's a large corporation)

Great people and good culture. I always loved going to work there, the hours were decent and I got great benefits/wages. I only left because I wanted to work out abroad

Dangerous work place

Google is the kind of company you have to adapt yourself and change everything you have in mind, it’s not true we are looking for the best talent they are looking for the best clones who fit to their own culture. If you don’t fit you coworkers could become dangerous


Free lunches, beautiful workplace, benefits


Coworkers in sales are dangerous

Very good experience with good coleagues and good environment

Good for a first job but toxic culture overall

It's ok to start a job in Ireland and there are some progression opportunities that let you get some experience in terms of corporate jobs.Work environment however is very toxic - little room for errors if you are an agent, negative relationship with the operations team which basically demands a lot and offers little cooperation. There is a lot of "above and beyond" culture, but there is very little reward for your efforts. You can find some great professionals but most of them are leaving the company.

Extremely poor management and exclusion of contract workers

Was working for Google on behalf of a recruitment agency (on a contract). It is the worst experience I have ever had in my career. I am a senior employee with lots of experience and have always enjoyed being a consultant. At Google, consultants are not treated like human beings. The management swore at me and the team constantly, gave timelines on projects that did not take any consideration of weekends, holidays, etc. We are not allowed to ‘speak to Googlers’ (these exact words are used) - we are only allowed to speak to our recruitment agency, but Googlers are allowed to speak to as in any way they want, when they so wish. We cannot complain, we do not get any benefits. Since the pandemic we have worked from home and we got nothing to help us. No budget for desks, no budget for extra screens. No questions of how we were doing. I have never in my career experiences worse treatment of human beings in a workplace and I am very happy that I can find a job elsewhere. I have it three years, has three different contracts with Google during this time. Recommend no one to work for Google, contract or not contract. People should be treated the same.

Fantastic Place to Work with Very Bright People

With such a fast paced devopment environment there is no typical day as such. As a business analyst some days involved hours of Dremel(Google's SQL) coding and Dashboard building whilst others were engaging with stakeholders defining future solution requirements. Never a dull moment :)

Good company, fair pay, good company culture (in theory)

Cannot complain about the company itself and the pay, but google is supposed to have an amazing company culture, which it is true on how the company manages at the very top management, but actually it is a very close environment, not much based on meritocracy but more on whether managers like you or giving more chances depending on who you personally know that might help getting in.
