Google Hands Out 'Dogfood' as Christmas Bonus

Christmas Cheer 2

theodp writes "You know times are tough when the best place to work in America replaces holiday bonuses with a request for unpaid labor. Blaming the economic crisis, Google management has canceled the traditional cash holiday bonus — reportedly as much as $20K-$30K per Googler — and substituted a $400-retail-price unlocked Google Android cell phone. An accompanying e-mail calls for employees to celebrate the 'chance for us to once again dogfood a product and make it even better!'"
