Google Gets Generous With Employees!

| Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

google giving bonuses and raises to employees for the holidays

Way to go, Google! This is an impressive move!

As a holiday bonus, Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has decided that the company will give all of its employees $1,000 cash (tax free) AND they'll be increasing salaries across the board by at least 10% starting January 1st!

As if that weren't enough, the company will also gives employees further raises equivalent to 1X each employee's target bonus for the year AND they'll be eligible for "merit increases" based on their performances.

Smart move, Google! World domination Company success will be MUCH easier to attain when employee morale is high.

What do U think of Google's holiday gesture? Generous? Not enough? Too much?

    I think your behind in your news. It was on the news this morning, that this was a leak and the person who leaked it was fired. They also said this was not true when they fired the person.

    I love my company - but man I am jealous!!

    my husband works there. signifigant layoff rumors completely untrue. and it is totally true, not a leak. they work hard there. don't be jealous you're not smart enough to work there yourself.

    A $1000.00 may not be much to some people but I'd gladly take it along with the raises and merit increases. Wish I worked there….

    So that's how they're spending the $40 billion they haven't paid in taxes. I guess it pays to be buddies with this administration. How come when they mention "big business" they don't mention Google? Oh, right… because they're not conservative… got it!

    Re: jmm326 – If true, good for your husband, however you don't have to be mean to Lherms22. What tells you no one here is good enough to work for Google??

    it was actually directed at the person calling them "happy little rich fucks". nothing to lherms, just happened to fall after it in a list. btw - we realize our hard work contributes to us being fortunate, so we actually DID donate alot to good causes last year, which the company matched 100%. So, they are giving as well. Yup.

    Google is an amazing company that is the definition of the entrepreneurial mindset. It's nice to hear that some companies are doing very well.

    Do you know what $1000 gets you in Mountain View, CA? Nothing. Not that they shouldn't be grateful, but proportionally it's a crappy bonus.
