By now you've heard that Google is giving all of its employees bonuses and raising their salariesto keep them happy.
Why would anyone who has a job in this economy be UNHAPPY to work for Google?
Glassdoor.com, a website where people anonymously post their salaries and rate their firms, has come out with some numbers comparing Google salaries to peers in Silicon Valley.
According to their numbers, the average software engineer at Google makes $98,800 a year. That's less than a software engineer at Apple ($99,000), Yahoo ($102,000), Cisco ($106,000), and...wait for it...Facebook ($110,500).
