Asian business students voted Google as their second-ranked ideal employer in 2013, one year after the search giant captured the top spot.

Google (GOOG) operates in many Asian markets, but has at times struggled to take a dominant share in countries with a domestic alternative.

Competition isn't the company's only headwind in Asia. For example, Google has a very complicated relationship with the Chinese government, having repeatedly sparred with Beijing over censorship issues.
