Of the California companies on the list, San Jose, CA-based PayPal has the most reason to worry: 95% of respondents currently working at the company are considering jumping ship, and 91% have spoken with a recruiter. It’s no surprise that Better.com also has 95% of respondents looking for the exit, especially after the online mortgage company laid off roughly 900 employees just before Christmas via Zoom. Last week, the New York City-based firm announced an additional 3,000 layoffs.
Palo Alto, CA-based VMware should also be concerned. Nearly nine out of 10 employees (88%) are thinking about leaving the company and 84% have interacted with a recruiter in the last month. In addition to VMware, headhunters seemed to have the most success with their job pitches at Amazon, San Jose, CA-based Cisco, Expedia, SAP and Wayfair – companies whose employees had a higher-than-average response rate than others in Blind’s analysis.
More than half of respondents (51%) at both Sunnyvale, CA-based LinkedIn and San Francisco-based Salesforce had gone on interviews in the past month. “This is a shift of control to the workers. It’s more aptly named ‘The Great Career Upgrade.’ People are getting better jobs,” said a verified Salesforce professional on Blind.
Despite a more tumultuous environment at Mountain View, CA-based Google in recent years, the tech juggernaut came in last on the list with 59% of respondents considering departure. Google had relatively low scores across the board: 57% had contacted a recruiter, 37% had applied for a job in the past month and only 28% had interviewed.
