Google: Pays less than other Silicon Valley tech companies. A system administrator earns around $35,000, which in the San Francisco Bay Area, with its astronomical housing prices and cost of living, might as well be minimum wage.
I have to believe that's a crazy-ass pre-IPO number of some sort. That's just way, way low. It makes no sense. I know engineers there who make way, way more than $35k/year.
I made more than that as a college undergrad in 1996!
On the off chance that it's accurate, I'd be glad to take resumes from any disgruntled Google sys admins! :-)
But seriously, WTF is with that number?
