    What Marissa Mayer Will Miss Most About Working At Google

    It's not the awesome cafeteria or the free dry cleaning. What she really might miss when she goes to Yahoo is how Google would accept her FedEx and UPS deliveries.

    Yahoo just announced that Marissa Mayer will be its new CEO, meaning she'll leave behind her post as VP of Location and Local Services at Google, a company she worked at for 13 years. In a recent interview with BuzzFeed Shift, Mayer shared her favorite thing about working at Google.

    "My favorite perk is that we can ship and receive from the office, which is great for people who buy a lot online – whether it's electronics, clothes, even toiletries, said Mayer, whose favorite indulgences include Oscar de la Renta clothes and Sk-II skin products. "We've all had that feeling where you get home at 10:30 at night and there's that note on the door that says first attempt at delivery and signature is required and you can't even sign the form. Being able to ship and receive at work is nice. Obviously we do the shipping at our own expense, but there are a lot of people who can't ship and receive at their place of work."

    When it comes to shopping, Mayer's philosophy is this: "When you want to treat yourself to something that's really beautiful, that really inspires you and captures your imagination, you should buy it."
