“I used to worry about my team quitting; not anymore!," a Yahoo (YHOO) engineering manager exclaims to TechCrunch, pleased with the hiring of Marissa Mayer. But the reaction among sales personnel is mixed: some top execs have left, and sales chief Michael Barrett, a Ross Levinsohn hire, is expected to do so in months. Also: a source tells BI Mayer hasn't shown any interest in Yahoo's media ops, a Levinsohn priority, and Q3 and Q4 ad sales will miss expectations due to the impact of recent turnover. (more) Update: Mayer has just poached Google marketing manager Andrew Schulte to be Yahoo's chief of staff; he replaces the departed Michel Protti.

    So Marissa Mayer continues to march forward taking no prisoners. She now has taken two people from Google, first Anne Espiritu and now Andrew Schulte. Once she has the full support of a loyal team around her I think Yahoo will become very interesting.
