Google is a prestigious company, pays well, has terrific benefits, pampers employees with perqs, and (back when the market was moving in the right direction) had highly attractive stock options to pass out.

So notorious is the “rejected by Google” experience, that it seems a new literary genre (kind of in the spirit of the satires of Martial) describing “How I Blew my Google Interview” has been identified by Henry Blodget.
