Google is beginning to lose some of its most valued executives and managers. Facebook so far has been the main acquirer of Google talent and has swiped another Google executive. Elliot Schrage left Google where he was head of global communications.
Schrage left Google for Facebook and what exactly his role in Facebook will be is unknown at this time. The departure of Sheryl Sandberg was enough to drive Google’s stock to its lowest point in a year. Sandberg was the driving force behind Google’s online advertising platform.
Sandberg left Google for Facebook as well. Google says that it still has a deep pool of managerial talent. However, the writing seems to be on the wall and Google has obviously lost some of its luster to the long term employees that helped to make it the huge success it is today.
