It’s X’mas and how we love giving and receiving gifts at this time of the year! Keeping the spirit of the occasion in mind, Google went ahead and gifted its employees Icecream Sandwich powered Samsung Galaxy Nexus as their Christmas gift!
All employees based in Zurich and London offices received a special edition of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as a gift for all their hard work this last year. However, we are not sure if employees in Google India received the same. But employees based in Zurich and London have definitely received a customized Nexus that sports a custom battery cover along with Google and Android logos.
According to several reports, Google gave all its 20, 000 employees across the globe an individual bonus of $1000 last year. In addition to this, they were also awarded a 10% hike in their salary on the first day of the New Year.
In April this year, Google CEO Larry Page had said that, “all Google employees will have their 2011 bonuses either go up or go down as much as 25% depending on how well Google performs against its strategy to integrate relationships, sharing and identity across products”
