Hey guys,

I know this forum is largely for wall street related posts but I have seen some posts creep around here about internships and jobs at Google from time to town.

So from anyone who is working/has worked at the GOOG, can you tell us what your experience was like? What you were doing? And since you are on this forum, why you picked it over the traditional finance track?

What does someone need to do to score a a job with one of their strategy teams and what is the work environment actually like (I know we constantly here about how creative it is and the massages and the gourmet meals and the slides and the beer on Fridays yada yada, what's the real deal)?

Thanks so much, best responses get SBs

    ^^^ You must read his thread if you are looking for a job in corp dev/strat. But, more specific for Google, my impression is they don't hire students into their corp dev/strat departments. I was curious about this myself so I looked through Google's job site and it seems they want some prior experience before taking you into the dev/strat groups.

    Second OhYeah, they take experienced hires period. Even the undergrad interns placed in BizOps were told from the beginning that they wouldn't be able to convert into that group for full-time even if they were spectacular performers.

    BillBank, sounds like you have some real knowledge on Google. Do you know the path to corp strat/dev in Google, through the company? What would be the best entry level job to take, at Goggle, if I wanted to move into strategy or corpdev down the line. Thanx.
