Google’s "Brain Drain"

Posted on October 27, 2009


Came across an interesting presentation today on The Business Insider that they posted back in September – “The Google Brain Drain Goes On And On.”

Interesting because it augments what I wrote back in June 2008 about Google’s Employee Retention. The mental infrastructure of Silicon Valley encourages this behavior to the betterment of the technology, venture capital, and related industries. This trend is what makes Silicon Valley a great place – employees learn that their personal and professional growth becomes limited within a large organization, so they take what they learned and move on to the next big opportunity.
