    Account Optimization at Google

    Adwords Associate (Former Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsExciting, friendly place to work. Really great team members. Lots of learning and training. It's like attending an University. I'm glad I started work here. Great memories.

    ConsIt's hard to move up the ladder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was a happy employee and loved folks at Management. My advice to Management is to let us in on the bigger, strategic level goals/numbers so that we're motivated to see how our work is contributing to it in a more concrete way. Also, it would help to have the career path a little more defined.

    The best second job one could have in the Advertising/Sales job ladder

    Account Optimizer (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsExcellent colleagues and teammates to work with
    Great perks that everyone raves about. It's all true!
    The ability to bring your whole self to work, warts and all.
    Opportunities to speak up and hold the leadership accountable for change/fixing real issues.

    ConsFor folks for whom this company is the first job, there's very little genuine understanding of the value that this company provides. Everyone focuses on the perks but it takes them a while to understand the ethos / culture truly.
    No matter what the review say, at the end of the day to succeed one has to work smartly and put in their 110% to see results.
