The most sought-after nine-to-fiver in the tech industry is without a doubt at Google. Their offices are the most productive, and the company offers some mindful opportunities for professional development. But that’s not all. Google also provides its employees with some serious perks, some of which might make you want to cry (someone actually did)! Let's look at the best benefits that current and former Google staffers have listed on Quora.
This Google benefit is off the charts. In the case of the death of a Google employee, their spouse can get half of the Googler's salary for the next ten years, and each of their children get $1,000 per month. When a certain Googler told his wife this, she cried tears of appreciation at Google’s generosity in the case of such an unfortunate event.
One perk that would make anyone jealous the opportunity to be surrounded by extremely talented and brilliant people at Google. One former Google employee has said, “For me the best perk is to be able to see, listen to and meet with people who I grew up reading about. Never in my life have I met so many people with a Wikipedia page than in the last one year!”
Google moms receive 18 weeks of paid leave after their baby is born and Google dads get six weeks. The Googlers' stocks vest, and they still receive their bonuses. Google also gives new parents the "baby bonding bucks" bonus to help them with baby expenses such as diapers. Why so generous, you may ask? After this policy was implemented, the number of women leaving Google decreased by half. While this benefit is not available in every country where Google has offices, it's quite a remarkable perk for those who receive it.
A former Google employee grieves for the food at Google. In addition to the fact that the food is all of the things mentioned above, he refers to the colour-coding of the food – red, yellow, green – depending on how healthy it is, so that he could rethink (or regret) that peanut-butter sandwich. This Googler also misses the proper mornings at Google, with a fine workout and a breakfast to match.
Former Google employee says the best perk when working at Google was taking his dog to work. Having his dog in the office made the Googler's working hours more productive, helped him manage his energy, and even made him more friends. He suggests, “If there is an easy Google benefit almost anyone can replicate, bringing dogs into the workplace is it.”
