Microsoft Brain Drains: Something that is expected

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 7:04 pm

This CNNMoney article about a Microsoft exec jump ship to Google is just one of the many news of Microsoft brain drain trickling on to the internet. These type of news has no factual value and has lost its sensational value as well.

Microsoft has enjoyed a good solid long run of being the magnet that attracts the best brains. As Newton’s law dictates “what goes up must comes down”, it is only a matter of time before it lose its crown. At present, I would not say that Microsoft lost its crown, but the crown is not as shinny as before.

Good brains are hard to get. Big companies like Microsoft, IBM and Google spend big money to attract them. The upside of having Google in the hiring game is the limitted commodity known as “Good Brains” just get more precious. Good for the people who qualifies.

Bad for the companies because their cost may just skyrocket. The jury is still out on its effects on the industry as a whole
