Two question for people who work at Google?

1) How’s the flexibility like at Google? Are you forced to go to office for 2-3x a week? Or is WFH situation, as it seems fit?

2) Does Google give work phone to their employees?

Thanks for your input in advance!

Going to the office equates to sitting on GVCs (same as when working from home), so the trade is pretty much 1.5+ hours commuting daily for a free meal 🙃

1) Depends on the role. If you’re hired for a remote role, you can remain remote. However, there is a mandate for RTO 3x/week. Some teams have been slow to adopt this but there is pressure from leadership to nudge this. If push comes to shove, I think the company will use the RTO policy to get some voluntary turnover to reduce HC

2) Yes, just request it when you start onboarding

I go into the office 2-3 times a month.
I have a work phone as well.

I do 2 days a week in the office, but I enjoy it. And I have a company phone but it’s at your managers discretion whether you need it or not.

Our team tries to do 3 days in the office but seems to be 2-3 for most people. Average is probably 2.25. Phone is provided or you can get reimbursed for a portion of your own phone bill.

Google Cloud has said you can work remote or go into the office whenever you want

Yes you get a phone or you can expense your phone bill up to a certain amount with mgr approval.

Or you can pay your phone bill and get auto-reimbursed for your internet (less paperwork)

My firm wants us back in the office at least 4 days a week, which is whatever. I love WFH but as long as I can do it 1-2 days a week and come and go as I please, I’m happy enough.

I’m from the Account side but I’m looking to switch things up in my career and move over to Project Management. At my current agency the role I have been holding doesn’t seem to have that type of transition opportunity. Due to that lack of flexibility I have been searching for hybrid or remote options. The idea presented itself a few months ago when I was recruited by an agency slightly larger than my own. I made to the top three but was not selected for the position. Any leads advice welcomed!

Hi Guys ,

Just a thought, wanted to discuss with you all.
Why do companies force us to work from office , when work can be done from anywhere. Some companies allow work from home but they need to work from their base location (Bangalore, Pune , Hyderabad) , do you also think there is some political pressure on corporates to ask their employees to stay in these cities so that locals can ask for whatever rent they want ?
