But it's headed that way. In the next 5-10 years, I predict the following will happen to Google. Most of it is quite obvious:
a. a major PR disaster, such as significant cloud data loss, or poor availability numbers for a day or week, something like that
b. stock will not have the same phenomenal growth
c. loss of search market share (of which a big deal will be made, but really, soon it will have nowhere to go, but down)
For me the deciding factors in choosing another offer were:
a. bigger company size => little chance to "change the world" like Eric Schmidt still likes to say
b. much better stock packages from my other options (Facebook's was essentially 4 times Google's at the latest valuation, and I do understand that's because of the higher risk, but for a college grad, that should be a no-brainer).
c. bonus perk I believe Google never had: 21 business days of vacation.
