What makes it so great?
"There were two things that really attracted me to Google: the reputation that Google had helping to transform businesses -- from large companies down to mom and pop pizzerias -- and the reputation for hiring amazing, smart people. There was an energy and excitement there that was palpable. I said I really want to be part of that. One of the things that I love about working here is a sense of camaraderie, everybody is proud of their team and the product. I spent five years in the navy as an intelligence offer and there are a lot of similarities -- the emphasis on leadership and that camaraderie. You have that strong bond that is exciting to be around."
-- Jackson Castleberry, 2009 graduate of the Darden School of Business

Getting hired:
