Cracking Into Google - Top 10 Reasons Why 2 Million People Apply Each Year

Download to read offline

Good luck getting a job at Google. It’s Almost 10 times harder to get a job at Google than it is to get into Harvard.

There's a good reason WHY. Google was crowned the “Happiest Company in America” by CareerBliss.com in 2011. The rankings are based on more than 100,000 worker-generated reviews spanning over 10,000 companies. Scores were based on such factors as work-life balance, relationships with bosses and co-workers, compensation, growth opportunities, a company’s culture and the opportunity for employees to exert control over the daily work flow. In 2014, Fortune Magazine and the Great Place to Work Institute named Google the 2014 “Best Company Work For.” They also ranked #1 in Glassdoor’s employees’ choice awards for 2015.

You don’t become the happiest company by mistake. It’s a product of thoughtful design and ultimately culture. Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin set the groundwork for building Google.

This Slideshare examined the Top 10 reasons why over 2 million people apply for jobs at Google each year.

  19. - Laszlo Bock, Chief People Officer “It turns out that the reason we’re doing these things for employees is not because it’s important to the business, but simply because it’s the right thing to do. When it comes down to it, it’s better to work for a company who cares about you than a company who doesn’t. A n d f r o m a c o m p a n y standpoint, that makes it better to care than not to care.”
