MSFT Millionaires Laughing at GOOG Millionaires

MSFT's millionaires were heard laughing at GOOG's millionaires recently when GOOG reported results. Google's brass suggested that revenues from clicking on Google related ads were decelerating. The Street obviously took notice of Google's warning, and has since punished the stock.

If you're worried about Google's employee morale, think again. It's been well documented that Google has some of the best employee perks. What great growth company doesn't, since it's a virtuous cycle. Great employee perks attract the best and brightest talent, which ultimately allows you to create killer strategies, produce great products the world needs and wants, and generate unbelieveable shareholder returns.

I do however think one perk that hasn't gotten as much attention at Google is their "nap pods". Google has these pods for its employees to escape, recharge, during the no doubt, stressful work day. I bet there's a lot of employees there that are worried their options with strike prices at $400 are now in danger of being underwater. I could say more, but I think the picture speaks for itself.
