“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.

(more) Update: Mayer has just poached Google marketing manager Andrew Schulte to be Yahoo's chief of staff; he replaces the departed Michel Protti.
