The Job Perks at Google

Google Work Perks: Which One Would You Love to Have?

I was talking to a friend who was extolling the many perks Googlers get to enjoy at their company. The tech giant has consistently been ranked as the one of the best companies to work for by Fortune and it's easy to see why so many of their employees are satisfied when you scroll through their benefits page.

Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman at Google, explains the reasoning behind these amazing perks, "The goal is to strip away everything that gets in our employees’ way. We provide a standard package of fringe benefits, but on top of that are first-class dining facilities, gyms, laundry rooms, massage rooms, haircuts, carwashes, dry cleaning, commuting buses — just about anything a hardworking employee might want. Let’s face it: programmers want to program, they don’t want to do their laundry. So we make it easy for them to do both.”

Which one of these Google perks would you want to have?

A lot of companies give free lunch and dinner to entice you to work longer hours at work. What better way to destroy work/life balance than 2-3 additional hours in the office just for free food - totally not worth it.

I picked matching the 401k, because it's the closest to actual money I'd be getting. I was going to choose free lunch and dinner, but then again, that would lead me to eat really unhealthy food, I bet. (I used to work at a company where we had a free cafeteria, and I always ate too much and the choices weren't very healthy.)
