Considering Google and not sure what the perks are at the Kirkland office.

1. Google has free food.

What else? Googlers?

Thanks :)

    Let's put that simple: Google has everything, MS has nothing. The list of G's pros is just too long to enumerate here.

      Ok, let's put the perks aside. How's is working in Google from a professional point of view? Do you feel you are delivering amazing products? Are you learning and growing? Read a bunch of blogs that talked about cancelled projects left and right and doing crappy boring work.

    Google Kirkland is a retirement home for Microsofties. It’s got everything to help you pass the remainder of your life. The only thing missing is a cemetery for your burial and funeral.

    Free food will change your life. Doesn’t matter if you make 500k at MS. Free food is free.

      Trust me, G spoils so much that after it any company which doesn't provide free food looks like lame mean Scrooge.

      Honestly, besides food, I don't really care about most of the perks. Money dwarfs any of the things like internet reimbursement and a free phone.

      But, uh, the question is about perks. So I answered about perks.

      Not everybody knows all Ms buildings. There is a climbing wall, 2 Xbox rooms and nap room in building 16. Also, two 22K espresso machines.

    Microsoft has better health insurance in my opinion.

      No. They just added some benefits (fertility) to make it comparable.
