For more than a decade, Google has set the standard for workplace culture. Its perks and benefits, combined with its meteoric rise to the top, made it more than just an industry darling: For many in the tech world, Google was the
place to work.
Larry Page and Sergey Brin were stepping down and handing over the reins of parent company Alphabet to current Google CEO Sundar Pichai. But even before that, the struggle of Google leadership to handle its growing global workforce has been apparent — and publicly hurting its company culture.
Late last month the tech giant was accused of firing four engineers who were organizing workers around social causes at the company. Now the U.S. National Labor Relations Board has begun an official investigation into the company about the incident, which is impacting the culture at both the company’s Mountain View, California, headquarters as well as its global culture at offices around the world.
And on top of these recent events, on Tuesday, Google was knocked out of the top 10 in Glassdoor’s 100 Best Places to Work in 2020, dropping three spots to No. 11. The annual list looks at eight different categories, including culture and values, work/life balance and overall company rating.
