If you work at Google, and you have a problem with Google’s “Search Plus Your World” features, you can find another place to work. Perhaps Facebook. That seems to be popular destination for former Googlers.

Google CEO Larry Page, according to a report from PandoDaily, told employees at a staff event:

“This is the path we’re headed down – a single unified, ‘beautiful’ product across everything. If you don’t get that, then you should probably work somewhere else.”

Apparently some of them are in fact looking to do just that. Sarah Lacy says she’s heard from several employees that they’re “embarrassed and unhappy”. She also points to this tweet from Chris Sacca, which says a lot:

Past week, I’ve had three GOOG employees email me “seeking new opportunities”. Keep em coming. Believing in your work matters. 1 day ago via Twitter for iPhone · powered by @socialditto
