By Ray Greer July 02,4: For most of us, employee benefits usually refer to medical, dental, vision and paid vacation time. For employees of Google the list doesn't end there, instead it goes on and on. Here are some of the things that Google employees cherish the most as benefits of working for Google.
The Pool of Co-Workers One of the more important part to any job you have is whom you work with. Fellow employees help make you feel comfortable at work and add to the enjoyment of doing what you love. At Google, not only are you working with some of the brightest minds in the industry, you're also working with some with celebrity status.

If there is any Google benefit almost anyone can replicate, bringing dogs into the workplaces is it. This includes something known as "massage credits" and it's exactly what you think. If a project is completed and earned a job well done, then the employee will get credits towards a massage.
This may seem odd, but the idea of general well-being extends out to other aspects of an employees health. One employee remembers a time when he was injured and couldn't work. Starting with my Manager and colleague, the entire company was really sympathetic with what happened to me and encouraged me to concentrate on getting healthier.
When I came back an extended time I was definitely feeling stressed, but my manager set her expectations fairly, which enabled me to ramp up very quickly and continue where I left off.
However, Google takes that even further. Google does the same-on steroids. Google gives dads 6 weeks of paid time off, and new mothers 18 weeks off. During this time, stocks are still vesting, checks are still coming in, and at the end of it all, Google gives a baby bonus.
