Facebook expresses that they have health benefits for employees and their families while offering family leave for new parents. As part of employee benefits they assist in adoption as well as surrogacy. Working at Facebook is more of a culture and community than a work place based on the website. They want employees to join community groups so they can connect with one another on other levels. Onsite amenities include dry cleaning and laundry services as well as vending machines. Along with holiday and vacation time every five years Facebook gives employees a 30 day break. Working at Facebook is a diverse atmosphere with people from all different backgrounds and expertise. Facebook believes by taking care of their employees and their families it will allow them to focus on Facebook’s mission of bringing people closer together. “Googlers” as Google employees are called enjoy a wide range of benefits. Of course they have education, retirement and health benefits but so do most other companies. Onsite amenities include healthcare services such as physicians and massages services for welllness. The fact that Google has onsite health and wellness services shows they care about the health of their employees. Google also has onsite cafeterias that provide Googlers free food. Onsite gyms are also options at Google along with free classes/personal trainers.

Company websites do provide information about the perks and benefits however, it is not entirely a complete benefits package by no means. They provide surface level explanations of what benefits they offer. It is only by being an employee and reading the packages given to you can you understand and rate the company behaviors and programs. Sometimes education benefits or incentives are based time in position or based on what position you have. Websites can provide broad information for prospective employees to be attracted to and the benefits could be better or worse.
