Hiring at Google


Talk about killing the goose that lays golden eggs! You have a perfect plan! I'm glad that the powers-be at GOOG don't think like you.


All those statements are very appropriate for bloated organizations like MSFT / IBM. GOOG is still quite lean considering its growth rate, revenue and profitability. They are very selective about hiring and had no hesitation letting go a significant portion of DCLK employees, at the first chance they got. Hiring smart folks and spending on R&D is a very good long-term strategy for a company like GOOG.
