I'm glad...

to know that even in heaven, there are troubles.

For the last few years people that work in IT hear the rumors that working for Google is something like work in heaven, complete with angelical wings and golden halo.

From one of newsletters I subscribe I was sent to this post on TechCrunch, that describes a few of the troubles there.

Ranging from incredibly long hiring process, to pay cuts (!!!) passing through poor management and micromanagement.

Just to quote a guy named Stevens about the Google hiring process:

"And let me say this: if Larry Page is still reviewing resumes, shareholders should organize a rebellion. That is a scandalous waste of time for someone at that level, and the fact that it’s 'quirky' is no mitigation."
