As Requested: IAmA Google employee. AMAA.
It's been fun, all! Back to work for me!
Someone requested that a Google employee to do an AMA. I won't violate my NDA, but I'll tell you what I can.
The questions posted were:
When were you hired to work for google?
What education did you have at the time?
BS in Computer Science and Math, PhD in Computer Science
What is the pay like?
I think it's pretty great.
What is the enviroment at your workplace like?
Fun. It's kind of like a playground for grownups. We have gym facilities, coffee bars, cafes, scooters to ride around on, giant lava lamps, a music room with all kinds of instruments, video game rooms, arcade machines, ...
How do you feel about Google's ambitious inventions and prototypes like the Google glasses?
I love when we do crazy stuff like that. I always hope I get a chance to try some of it out before it's released.
EDIT: I obviously don't have a PhD in Reddit formatting.
DOUBLE EDIT: I should make it perfectly clear by the way that I will be speaking for myself and not as a representative of the company.
