What employees have to say about Google according to Comparably:
Enlightening. I’ve learned so much and grown in all directions: productivity, management, financial literacy, diversity, inclusion, industry, and culture. Google cares about its employees and I’ve felt supported. Just as important, they truly cares about their users.
As we’ve grown there have been concerns about transparency and loss of “culture”, but it’s precisely the open dialogues we have with leadership about these issues that exhibit the company’s sustained culture.
Great culture to motivate each employee to contribute to the overall success of the company and the personal success of the people.
