Working at Google helps save money in Bengaluru, says techie


Priyansh Agarwal, a software engineer at Google in Bengaluru, has highlighted one of the key benefits of working at the tech giant—free cab services for employees.

This perk, he noted, significantly helps him save money.

In a recent post on X, Agarwal shared, “Google provides cab service between office and home. It is one of the biggest perks in Bangalore. I live 12km away from the office and I never have to wait for an uber/ola/rapido. It helps me save a lot of money too. PS: wrote this while going to office in GCab.”

Agarwal, an IIT-Delhi alumnus who previously worked with Zomato and Goldman Sachs, emphasized that this benefit is particularly valuable in Bengaluru, known for its traffic congestion and commute challenges.

His post garnered various reactions, with many users noting that other companies also offer similar services. Agarwal clarified in response, “Of course, other companies do that too. Since the companies that I have worked at previously didn't provide this, it is new for me. This tweet in no way means that other companies don't provide a similar service.”

One user commented on the appeal of such benefits, saying, “One of the reasons I am in Blr and going to office despite having WFH.” Another pointed out the financial and retention benefits for companies, adding, “Everything is included, and companies get tax deductions, and they save huge. And employee retention gets easy for them by providing perks.”

A third user shared their experience with a similar benefit, noting, “The company where I work also provides cab service to employees. They charge 1400 per month for the people having more than 30k salary and for people getting salary less than 30k it's free. I think 1400 is extremely less considering that my office is beside International airport.”

Another user remarked, “I think most of the MNCs do provide cab facilities,” highlighting the commonality of this perk among multinational companies.
