One of the great things about the blogosphere these days is that it provides us with so many different perspectives on the news. Google recently announced that all of its employees were going to receive a $1000 bonus and a 10% pay raise for 2011 in addition to bonus-based salary bumps. This news provided grist for a number of posts from a micro look at the effect of this news on Google’s earnings to macro views on the economy and the nature of employee compensation. So in addition to putting some more money in employee’s pockets, Google is also providing the blogosphere with grist for the mill. In today’s screencast we look at the implications of increased cash compensation at Google.
