Today, Google employs 20,223 people around the world, receiving a resume every 25 seconds from eager job-seekers, hiring an average of nine new employees a day. Its headquarters, often referred to as the Googleplex, is located in Mountain View, California. It runs thousands of servers across the world, processing millions of search requests each day and about one petabyte of user-generated data each hour.
Google has its own state-of-the-art gym . . . offering weight-training and a host of exercise machines, rowing machines, lockers and shower rooms, and two swim-in-place wave pools.
Other perks include free haircuts, dry cleaning and laundry, child care, car services, chiropractors and five on site doctors available for employee check-ups; all free of charge.
Perhaps the most unusual bonus of all… employees can bring their dogs to work with them and keep the four-legged canine in their offices.
We already know that working for Google has certain advantages, but, believe me, this giant of a search engine takes the welfare of its employees seriously as shown by this decompression (stress) capsule that is impermeable to sound and light….
