Google employees criticized the chairman of the corporation Sundar Peach, comparing him to the villain from “Shrek”. The reason for this was the news about the increase in his salary, reports Business Insider.

It is known that this year Pichai earned $226 million. This makes him one of the highest-paid CEOs in the US. Earlier this year, Alphabet, Google’s parent company, said it was eliminating about 12,000 jobs, about 6% of the company’s staff worldwide. The state’s indignation was caused by the fact that as part of cost optimization, which was proclaimed the official reason for mass layoffs, Pichai himself did not give up at least part of his own bonuses.

As a result, a fair number of memes have appeared on Google’s internal forums in which employees make fun of management. In particular, Pichai is compared to Lord Farquaad, the main villain from Shrek. The cartoon is depicted with a quote from the cartoon: “Some of you will die, but I am ready to accept this sacrifice.”

The publication notes that now Google continues to reduce costs, depriving employees of bonuses.
