I have been approached by GCP recruiter for a Data/AI Customer Engineer role. How is the culture in GCP? is it relaxed or long hours? and how much do you work in pre-sales vs post sales? is work from home/remote work allowed? and what the expected level should be for an 15+ years experienced professional. Any other tips would be great as well.

Feel free to DM, I’m a PgM in PSO. culture is solid, it’s just consulting-lite in my world. Most of your work I assume is going to be pre sales, and you’ll be involved in post sales to a degree, primarily to ensure that the original scoping is still being delivered (architectural oversight), hours are solid, rarely work more than 45-50 and if I do it’s at program kickoff, overall it’s still google.. things are super relaxed, managers leave you alone/won’t micromanage you. Came from an azure only shop prior to this and have no regrets.

Yep go ahead.

We have dedicated pre sales people - they are called customer engineers. So while I won't say that you won't do any pre sales...it's a very small portion of your work and it's usually handled by the more experienced people on your team. Pso is basically 95% post sales. Work life is amazing....like seriously. We try to staff our people no more than 32 hours a week - that leaves them 8 hours to work on other assets or skill building. Training is easy to get and everyone is techy and passionate about pushing things forward. It's basically heaven

@G5. Pso evaluates people differently than our sales org. That is very clear when you look at what levels we rate people at. Getting an L6 rating in PSO takes a significant level of skill and experience as we have to build everything. The main factor is that you need to be a Google expert to get that level (expert by our standards). ----- @G6 - when it comes to salaries. I see PSO L5 total comps anywhere from 250s-450s. The higher end is usually for people that have been here long enough to see stock appreciation. I believe we make less than sales....but then again....we work a lot less hours and have a nice training budget.

Totally depends on the territory you get assigned, the competence of your sales counterparts/leadership, and the book of business. Pressure can be very high to sell and move through the sales cycle as fast as possible without care for what a true technical solution requires. CE role, in my experience, is minimal actual tech and more just being a tech talking head (aka the art of possible and discovery)/demo monkey for the sales side.
