Whenever a high-profile executive is poached from a big-name company, the tech community usually notices it, but Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and others poach lesser-known employees from each other as well. Data indicates that Google is the biggest offender when it comes to tech names poaching talent from other tech firms.

Microsoft looks to be the underdog here, whether it’s out of respect for the other companies or simply because employees are drawn by the glamor of working at Apple or Google but not by an offer from a legacy tech name in a transition period.
