We think Google is a great place to work, but don’t just take our word for it.

Global employer branding firm Universum asked 240,000 students from the world’s 12 largest economies (the U.S., Canada, Brazil, the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, China, India, and Australia) to identify  the employers for which they most wanted to work. Google ranked as the world's best employer according to business and engineering students, for the second year running.
Net Geners like how Google requires that engineers dedicate a portion of their work week to pet projects. That’s a fantastic way to spur innovation in the workplace. The famous Google mantra of ‘Don’t Be Evil’ resonates with whip-smart young people who are attracted to companies whose stories they can tell, whose values they can espouse and whose businesses they can learn. Google's "Don't Be Evil" slogan was conceived by Google engineers, Paul Buccheit and Amit Patel, to promote a corporate culture that put long-term gains and user satisfaction above short-term profits.
Google is known for its famous perks as well as its appealing workplace culture and good pay. It's campuses around the globe reflect Google's philosophy, which is nothing less than “to create the happiest, most productive workplace in the world."
Google employees enjoy offices which have play areas; coffee bars and open kitchens; sunny outdoor terraces; gourmet cafeterias that serve free breakfast, lunch and dinner; Broadway-theme conference rooms; and conversation areas designed to look like vintage subway cars. Amazing perks include subsidized massages; free once-a-week eyebrow shaping; free yoga and Pilates classes; or free courses on topics as varied as advanced negotiation taught by Wharton professors and book readings by celebrity authors.
A company with Google’s largess — and the profit margins that make it possible — also provides plenty of job growth opportunities.
"Students are seeking platforms for their own performance and growth," said Universum chief executive Petter Nylander.
"And they told us which companies are accomplishing this. They want to work in innovative settings, unencumbered by infrastructure, while still delivering strong financial results. Consequently, the tech industry generally attracts this kind of talent."
With Google at the top of the rankings table, Microsoft, Apple, the BMW Group, General Electric, IBM, Intel, Sony, Siemens and Shell rounded out the Top 10 workplaces for engineering students.
