Google employees have it good, as this video shows.
(Thx Erno Mijland).
While perks like on-site doctors, car wash, pool tables and 11 great free restaurants are nice, I still believe that those aren’t the real reasons Google employees are happy. The real reason is that they have fun, get to kick butt, work with great people and have a large degree of freedom.
Perks help, but are not the source of happiness at work, as my previous blogpost about another master of perks, SAS Institute, shows.
