Actually, this is a huge pain in the ass, and "subtle" doesn't describe it at all. (Yes, I am going to complain about my free food now).

The summary I'll leave here: the Company shouldn't brag about providing free food while simultaneously using it as some sort of big science experiment.

Working with Microsoft products in a Microsoft dominant school has been educational.  However, Google keeps drawing me back with their feature rich capabilities.

From the perspective of start-up and student education, Google has a lot of powerful applications that promote experimentation, learning, communication with effective collaboration with minimal overhead cost.  From a student perspective, it is frustrating as a student, to know there are some very powerful enterprise solutions but the cost to learn these tools is prohibitive.  

If organizations desire to attract prospective personnel who understand the tools, know how to work with them, who can demonstrate how useful those tools can be for enterprise solutions with knowledge of security concerns--why not make the tools completely available for students to use in the education environment?

Hands down, so far, Google rich tools have made this easier.  For example, Trello is obviously very easy to integrate into Google Apps for business.  SharePoint is powerful and a viable enterprise tool.  However, incorporating crucial tools like PowerBI, Lync, Office 365, etc. is cost prohibitive.  Google, Google collaborators, and innovators simply make it easier to do business with lower cost.  There are drawbacks but I find the positives far outweigh the negatives.  

Being introduced to Trello for team collaboration is drawing me back to Google Apps.  From a cost perspective, as a student and future employee--scalability is a huge concern and the cost of doing business with effective collaboration is easier and less prohibitive.  

If an organization desires students who are educated in their tools, then make it affordable and available for students who are already taxed with the high cost of getting an education.  Why would starving students spend more money on tools needed in the work force?  Educational institutions are organizations that are already scrimping and the tools we need to learn to use are too expensive for us to play with.  Google tools are affordable.  More "C" level decision makers are 'wowed' by what we are learning with examples of our work in school.  What tools are we using?  That depends on the organizations willing to eat some costs with students.  Students are some of your best marketing agents.

Google’s guru of human resources, Laszlo Bock, says work is made better through transparency, goal setting, frequent performance reviews and a less-hierarchical structure. And, of course, hiring smart, conscientious and humble people.
