However, the company began to attract a bonus, the bonus in late 2008 and early 2009 to have to terminate the employment of several hundred employees, so the company can continue to run in times of recession the U.S. economy in the past.
This year was a good year for Google. Google revenue up 23 percent to reach USD21 million in the first nine months in 2010. Their confidence increases, because this year Google has added 3,500 employees expand its workforce by 20 percent. Google also did a lot of investment in data-centers that run their online services. Eric saw the policy of salary increase as compensation to the 'best people in the world', but the move was analyzed by many as a prevention for its employees do not move to Facebook.
