As one of the big five tech giants, Alphabet demonstrated its resilience during the 2022 crisis. Despite experiencing the biggest revenue and profit drop in its history, the company successfully rebounded, in part due to strategic cost-cutting measures that resulted in significant job losses.

In 2023 alone, Google laid off around 12,000 people or 6% of its global workforce, and the layoffs continued this year. Although the company spent over $2.1 billion on severance and other expenses caused by the massive wave of job cuts, its revenue, and net income still significantly increased and hit an all-time high this year.

According to Statista and the official company data, Alphabet's net income for the three months ending March 31, 2024, was $23.6 billion, 57% more than in the same period a year before. This figure is even more impressive when broken down to a shorter time scale of net per second. Based on Alphabet's profit in Q1, the company earned $3,042 per second during the three months, or 43% more than last year.
