Google: At the height of tensions with its employees

For years, Google has been considered one of the best work environments. However, its reputation is now quite different, as there are many reactions from its employees.


The tension between employees and management seems to be reaching a critical point. On Monday, Google fired several sincere employees through an internal communication alleging a breach of data security policies. Now of course some officials accuse Google of trying to suppress its critics.

Some Google employees who organized the protests described the layoffs as an attempt to intimidate employees.

“With these layoffs, Google is taking revenge on them workers that create organizations, "they said in a statement."


On Tuesday, a Google spokesman told CNN Business that employees were fired for trying to access information that was restricted by data security policy. One of the employees, the spokesman said, had been subscribed to other Google employees' work diaries without knowing it.

However, the policy has recently changed, according to a joint statement by other Google employees, and thus removed this category of employees, despite being fired.

Throughout Silicon Valley, hundreds of Facebook (FB) employees have spoken out to oppose the company's stance on its policy. Amazon employees (AMZN) organized a visit in September to pressure him CEO Jeff Bezos for further action on climate change. Both Microsoft (MSFT) and Salesforce (CRM) leaders received letters from employees asking them to terminate government contracts with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


The redundancies, along with the announcement of hiring a consulting firm linked to trade union activities, suggest a shift in its approach to employee dissent.

This month, as the redundancies neared, Google said it would limit the weekly meetings of all employees.

This could reinforce the perception that the company is increasingly focusing on actions aimed at identifying sources of internal disagreement.
