LinkedIn vs Google perks and benefits - not part of TC

LinkedIn trrrrng

Google has more money to fling around and is known to pamper employees the most. Though LinkedIn has much lesser money to throw, it tries to compete but loses most of the time.
What are the differentiating benefits in these companies?

    LinkedIn has DTO instead of 3-5 weeks of vacation time.
    LinkedIn has 12 InDays per year.
    Both have a week off for Christmas, but LinkedIn has a week off for July 4, vs 2 days at Google.
    LinkedIn gives free money through ESPP.
    Both have the same 401k match, free health care, etc.

      What’s InDay?
      Also Google doesn’t give a week off for Christmas, two holidays only.

      It’s a day of self improvement like studying new stuff or just a day off for a lot of people

      Not just a day off, the company will hold themed events around themes like family, reflection, vision, etc. You can choose whether to participate or whether to work at all. Sometimes people do stuff like hack days for fun. There will always be off site events like hikes, climbing, volunteering as well.

    I think it’s other way around, when I was comparing the offers LinkedIn came ahead in perks as compared to G, which inlook has mentioned above and not to mention better food at L. The salary was same, only uncertainty was refreshers.

    Google has better donation matching (6k vs 1k). Sucks because Microsoft has 12k!

      That's one of the few people LinkedIn in behind.

    To be honest, I'm actually surprised LinkedIn has better perks than Google despite the huge difference in potential of both the companies.
    But yeah, in days, two shutdowns perkup etc are much better and food is very close.

      LinkedIn has arguably the best food in the valley, Google arguably serves mush

    LinkedIn has the best benefits and perks, period. (I like Google better overall though) You can throw more money at employees to compensate for the perks, but the food quality, inDays and two weeks shutdown are just too good.

    LinkedIn also gives $2k PerkUp to each FTE for the year. You can expense various expenses against it (gym memberships, personal training, massages, house cleaners, pet care, child care and more).
