With on-site laundry facilities and gyms, Google Inc. has earned a reputation as one of the more employee-friendly companies in American business, so vice president Marissa Mayer is often asked what her favorite perk is.
“It’s actually the fact that you can ship and receive from the office,” admitted the 35-year-old search guru and confessed shopaholic. (When asked during her Q&A, she allowed that she was wearing Oscar de la Renta.) Mayer established her Internet consumer bona fides in support of a light-handed critique of the way most fashion brands design their Web sites. She called out bad habits such as an overreliance on Adobe’s Flash animation software, which is hard for Google’s search team to index and can add to load times, as well as tough-to-navigate page setups.
