Google Tops List of 100 Best Companies to Work For

Google has topped the Fortune 10th annual100 Best Companies to Work For” list in 2007. If you need a job, Google can be the best employer you can find.

A Forbes press release highlights some reasons –

“At Google you can enjoy free gourmet meals; do your laundry; drop off your dry cleaning; get an oil change and get a massage all onsite. Work is such a cozy place that it’s sometimes difficult for Google employees to leave the office, which is precisely how the company justifies the expenses, none of which it breaks out of its administrative costs. Engineers can spend 20% of time on independent projects–no wonder Google gets 1,300 resumes a day.”
