Engineers Take It To The Bank In Mountain View

Would you rather build something or help sell something? If you work at Google, apparently you want to be in the former category.
According to Valley Wag:

Engineers are the real winners. No one’s sure just how much richer the geeks are than the ad-sales wonks and other early Googlers, but there’s definitely a class divide — not that anyone acts like it at the office.

Let’s pretend the above scenario is true. It’s a bit incongruous, given that Google is now the world’s largest advertising firm, based on income.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
