According to Business Insider's Jim Edwards, a discussion on a Quora thread is "being used by current and former Google employees to dish the dirt on working for Big G." Reportedly, while working at Google is better than mining for salt, Google is now such a big corporation with such a great reputation, that they can afford to hire la creme de la creme and then have them do menial tasks.

Google is so big you can't have any impact on it.

"I worked at Google for 3 years and it was very difficult to leave but there was one major factor that helped me make the decision - the impact I could ever have on the business as an individual was minimal. As noted in many answers below, Google is an incredible machine that prints money thanks to AdWords. Unless you are an amazingly talented engineer who gets to create something new, chances are you're simply a guy/girl with an oil can greasing the cogs of that machine."
