We already know that Google employees get benefits like fitness subscriptions, free food, free haircut, car washes, laundry service etc but one benefit ,that we're going to tell you, will surely surprise you -
When a Google employee passes away, their spouse would receive 10 years of half pay, the children of a deceased employee will be paid $1000 per month until they are 19 years old and the timeline can be extended if the child is in school full time.. Yes this is right, if a Google employee dies then their surviving spouse/domestic partner will receive a check for 50% of their salary every year for the next decade.
There’s no tenure requirement needed to receive the benefits either, it makes sure that most people will qualify for that. Google has clearly said that the main purpose behind taking this huge step is not to find more potential workers (we can get them anyway), the decision is made to help their (deceased) families through this horrific if inevitable life event. However it covers only U.S. employees right now.
