Google is generally considered a great place to work with numerous benefits and perks, including post-death payments to the surviving spouse and significant other. It just goes to show what a great pitch person Yahoo CEO and President Marissa Mayer is, considering she just snagged herself another ex-Googler.

Mayer, a former Google employee herself, managed to pluck Andrew Schulte from his old work place where he served as a product marketing manager. Schulte joins Yahoo as the new Chief of Staff.

Andrew Schulte
Andrew Schulte is the second former Google employee to join Yahoo since the beginning of August.

"Five life-changing years with Google flew by! Beyond thrilled to get started Marissa Mayer and the whole Yahoo team," Schulte recently tweeted.

Mayer had previously been successful in poaching Anne Espiritu from Google, where she had served as the Global Communications and Public Affairs Manager.

Obviously the smart people at google could care less if these 2 have left the company

How come no counter offer to Ms. Mayer when she left

How do you know there was no counter-offer? Also the counter-offer would have to be huge. The pay you get as an American CEO is insane.

After the recent post on what Google's benefits are I'm really curious as to what Yahoo has to offer.

I can't imagine any compensation less then there pay and benefits at google, even if that's not standard for all yahoo employees you can bet the ex-google employees will have demanded that yahoo at least match the offer, and it seems marissa mayer is taking the marketing/Public relations from google for her personal use at Yahoo.

Well this world is all about self-benefiting.
