From "They" to "We"

Yesterday was my one month anniversary at Google. While having a conversation the other day with a friend I caught myself using the word "we" to describe something that Google was doing. I'm not sure when I made the transition from using "they" or "Google" to "we".

I'm curious, how long would you say the typical transition time between "they" and "we" is when starting a new job? Is it a quicker transition when moving between teams within an organization (I would assume it is)?
