MRS. ARCHANA KRISHNA
Google Products
Google’s Mission
Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it
universally accessible and useful.
Focus on the user and all else will follow.
Culture in Google
It’s really the people that make Google the kind of company it is. We hire
people who are smart and determined, and we favor ability over
experience. Although Googlers share common goals and visions for the
company, we hail from all walks of life and speak dozens of languages,
reflecting the global audience that we serve. And when not at work,
Googlers pursue interests ranging from cycling to beekeeping, from frisbee
to foxtrot.
We strive to maintain the open culture often associated with startups, in which
everyone is a hands-on contributor and feels comfortable sharing
ideas and opinions. In our weekly all-hands (“TGIF”) meetings—not to
mention over email or in the cafe—Googlers ask questions directly to Larry,
Sergey and other execs about any number of company issues. Our offices
and cafes are designed to encourage interactions between Googlers
within and across teams, and to spark conversation about work as
well as play.
Life in Google
Fortune Magazine and the Great Place to Work
Institute named Google the 2014 “Best
Company Work For.” This marks our fifth time at
the top of the list.
