Forget the 10 percent raise, Google offers $3.5M to engineer

According to TechCrunch, Google is upping its offers to keep engineers from jumping ship for Facebook.

Mike Arrington “confirmed” this evening that one Google engineer “being heavily romanced by Facebook” was offered $3.5 million worth of stock to stick around.

It makes Googlers’ 10 percent raises and $1,000 bonuses look puny. The search giant reportedly fired the person who leaked details of the upcoming raise and compensation changes. I wonder if it will also go after Arrington’s source.

Is Microsoft making any outrageous retention offers nowadays?
