Google: the best place to work in the US

It was recently featured on Oprah naming Google as the best place to work in the US. "Everything is free", says one of the co-founders of Google who revealed that Google only started at a small garage four years ago. Now, it has more than 10,000 employees all over the world and those who work at Google can avail of spa, haircut, gym, laundry service, day care service for kids and pets, massage, gourmet food from 11 different cafeterias etc. all for FREE.

Oprah half-jokingly said that pretty soon all of us would be wanting to work with Google. When Google first advertised for workers, it emphasized its need for "Nerds". Yes, Google looks at records and grades and you better belong to the top bracket of your class to get hired.

Salaries at Google are competitive but again, talks circulate that there are a number of employees who are earning millions.

Online or offline, it's Google where people wanna go.
