Google constantly builds “dog food teams” – the groups who work to make all products better. 9
Nooglers (new to Google) are given lots of on-boarding support. They are taught early on: o It’s fun to work – have fun. o Think big and take risks. o If it’s broken, fix it or find someone who can. o Invent solutions not yet thought possible. 10
