    MUMBAI: Move over McKinsey. Google is now the country’s coolest employer, according to research done by The Nielsen Company after polling 860 students graduating next year from 30 premier B-schools. The survey was done in October-November during the peak of the placement season when hundreds of companies descend on campuses in a countrywide hunt for talent. The internet giant had come second in the list of the most preferred employers in the 2009 survey. Consulting firm McKinsey, which had topped the charts last year, slipped to number five this year. Two other consulting firms, BCG and Bain & Co , also made it to the top ten this time. TAS, the talent incubator of the Tata group, has clawed up from number eight in 2009 to the second slot this year. It was a close race between FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) heavyweights Hindustan Unilever and P&G for the third and fourth spots, respectively. Goldman Sachs , Accenture and the Aditya Birla Group were the other companies in the top ten. “We have worked hard to ensure that people enjoy what they do when working for us,” says Shailesh Rao, MD of Google India. “We have a collaborative culture and are purpose-driven.” Google India encourages innovation by allowing people to spend 20% of their time in projects of their interest. It also gives patent bonuses and high flexibility to help employees strike the right work-life balance.Source:ET
