Ik heb een voltijdbaan bij Google (Korter dan een jaar)
1. Work with some of the very smartest people in the industry.
2. Perks on perks, endless perks, you won't even be able to find them all on the public internet, prepare to be pampered daily.
3. Some of the coolest tech offices in the world. And you can visit any of them at any time if you happen to be stopping by! (Not right now because of COVID, obviously)
4. Quite possibly the best internal tools in FAANG.
5. Stock is a rocketship right now.
6. Get first-hand insight on some really cool and cutting-edge projects. Although unfortunately, you won't always be allowed to talk about them externally.
7. On average, great WLB (30-40 hrs/wk). But as with any company, it's entirely team-dependent, so do your research before joining a team!
1. Pay is not as crazy as it was, say in 2010. (But still among the top in the industry)
2. Still some uncertainty around WFH policy.
3. Some of the projects are really cool but might never see the light of day. Just how big tech is though, sometimes.

Take a clearer stance on WFH policy, one way or the other.
Ik heb via een werknemersdoorverwijzing gesolliciteerd. De procedure duurde meer dan 4 maanden. Ik heb gesolliciteerd bij Google (Seattle, WA (Verenigde Staten)) in maart 2021.
5 rounds, with 1 behavioral and 4 technical (this will vary depending on which position/level you're applying for). The behavioral round is very standard, just look at Amazon's leadership principles to get an idea. The technical interview questions were LeetCode-style, although none of them were directly from LeetCode. They were easily the hardest questions I've ever encountered in any tech interview, including from Facebook/Amazon/Microsoft/Uber/etc. Just memorizing LeetCode won't be enough (as it would be for Facebook, for example), you'll need to really understand the underlying concepts and be able to apply them to do well. After you pass the technical interview, the recruiter will either 1. try to match you with a team before putting you through to the hiring committee (this happens if you did ok on your interview) or 2. put you through to the hiring committee before matching you with a team (this happens if you did very well on your interview). Either way, you will need to both match with a team AND pass the hiring committee to receive an official offer (and you will also need to receive VP approval, although almost everyone who reaches this step will get the approval). Note that reaching the hiring committee does NOT mean you have an offer yet. In fact, from what I've heard, over 60% of candidates who make it to the committee are rejected by the committee. But if you don't make it, you can always try again next time!
