outstanding / extraordinary success

Hello again,
I am seeking an idiomatic way of making the following understatement more in accordance with the reality:

Google is experiencing extraordinary success / Google meets with outstandingly good fortune/ ....???

Any idea of a striking idiom that could depict Google's situation in a more colourful but symbolic way?

THanks for your help.

    Maybe "Google's on a roll"?

    Where do you want to use the phrase, Moon Palace?

    Thanks for your help, Loob. :)

    I want to emphasize the idea that this success might be ephemereal if one day employees or employers lost confidence in one another, if employee performance assessment was suddenly resorted to.

    So it should go like this:
    Google is currently on a roll, which is mostly due to the freedom of initiative employees are given, but this might change if corporate executives were to assess their employees' performances.

    Would it fit?

    I don't think "on a roll" would fit there - it's quite slangy, and the rest of your sentence is relatively formal (especially the "were" after 'if').

    "Flying high" might work...

    I'm sure others will come up with more inspired alternatives:)
