Current and former employees have taken to job site Glassdoor to discuss some of their favorite perks. Overall, reviewers gave the company's benefits a 4.6 out of 5 stars. Employees praised everything from the company's parental leave policy to the tons of free meals they get at work.
Here are some of the perks Googlers mentioned on Glassdoor:
First year engineers get 15 days of paid time off -- that jumps to 20 days after three years and 25 days after five years. And anyone can take an unpaid three month leave of absence.
New mothers get paid leave up to 22 weeks, while fathers and adoptive parents get between seven and 12 weeks of paid leave. One senior software engineer wrote the benefit "...helps create an understanding that any team member might go on leave now and again, and that this is expected and normal and okay."
Google offers a 50% 401k match up to $8,250.
Googlers get free meals and snacks in the office, which one Glassdoor reviewer called "varied and delicious." Reviewers called the food "healthy," "tasty," and even "on par with any of the top restaurants in NYC."
They can also enjoy beer and wine in the office on Fridays.
