Google facing hiring challenges
With rumors flying in Silicon Valley that Google is bad-mouthing the competition in an attempt to hire people away from other companies, CEO Eric Schmidt went on the record that there will be multiple winners in the Internet/search space and that the company continues to have a tough time hiring enough people according to this Dow Jones Newswires story:
"We actually underperformed our budgets because we can't hire the quality of people we want," Schmidt said.
...As it adds new centers [in Kirkland, WA, New York and India], Google will try to limit the size to between 150 to 200 employees, large enough to stimulate creativity but small enough to encourage individual initiative.
