Yahoo, Google, Bear Sterns: The Employee Turnover Perspective

Includes: BSC, GOOG, YHOO
by: Paul Kedrosky

Nice graph from the FirstRain research service showing employee turnover trends at Google and Yahoo over the last year. Red denotes turnover-related losses, and green denotes gains. While both companies have seen losses, the level at Yahoo -- especially in recent weeks -- is daunting. 

Just by way of comparison, I have also included the recently-deceased Bear Stearns, whose losses pale against Yahoo's executive exodus.

Update: If you're thinking of leaving Yahoo, there is now a boilerplate resignation-letter generation tool out there. Check it here.
