Google provide their employee the luxury to choose from 18 different restaurants and cafe, serving variety of foods from ethnic to Indian to South American to Asian to Italian foods. If you are a health conscious person, Google also has few café where they only use fresh, locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables. Furthermore, Google takes healthy eating to the next level by growing their own food. You can find foods like Google Strawberries, Google Pies, and Google Mangoes around the Google compound. Addition to that, Google makes sure that there are unlimited amount of munches within just few feet from everyone’s desks. Moreover, all of this is absolutely FREE!
If you feel a little bit fluffy after eating all the delicious foods, Google also has a fully equipped professional gymnasium for their employees. Dozens of personal trainers help the googlers stay healthy and sexy, both physically and mentally by providing various aerobic classes, strength training and yoga sessions.

We all love a stress freeing massage with warm oil, relaxing tunes and pleasant aroma. So, once in their Birthday, Googlers get a free relaxing and stress killing massage session.
