Google Offers Engineer $3.5 Million In Stock To Stay Away From Facebook

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz



Google isn't messing around!!

The company is apparently going all out, making "extraordinary" efforts to stop their employees from wandering over to other companies such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and especially Facebook.

Sources say that the reason why some of the employees leave Google is because:

"Facebook is quietly telling people, never in writing, that there’s no reason their stock won’t hit $100 billion in total valuation over the next couple of years. No guarantees…but hey if you get 1/10 of 1%, that’s $100 million in stock. Now it’s a party."

Back in September, a Google engineer turned down an offer of a 15% pay raise and $500,000 in restricted stock to stay at Google, however, he still strayed and went to Facebook.

Google is apparently trying to make sure that doesn't happen again so they are now offering one of their precious engineers $3.5 million in their restricted stock.

The engineer has accepted Google's offer and will stay with the company.

Smart move.
