Just Say No... to Google???

A perspective is very important when it comes to where you want to work. If you have worked a few years, you begin to have a feel for what your preferences are when it comes to work. Here is an interesting look from a former Microsoft employee who quit, founded a start up, then was acquired by Google. Supposedly Google is a very 'closed' off company compared to the transparency of Microsoft. This memo has been making rounds through out the Microsoft internal emailing list. It is quite long, but tries to explain a great deal about life at Google, including 20%, management structure, work hours, benefits, the food, etc. Take a read and get a good eye into Google work life.
