60% of Google Employees Now Worth At Least $1,000,000
Reuters says an estimated 60% of Google's 1,900 employees are worth $1,000,000 in stock options. As prakslash on Slashdot explains:
...it is now imperative for Google to maintain its sense of mission. If it fails to do so, a whole slew of employees facing post-IPO burnout and boredom will leave the company to go back to school, start a new company, or join the ranks of high-tech early retirees. Such a mass cashing-out could lead to a decline in Google stock price and intellectual brain-drain. Oh how I wish I worked for Google.
