Here’s an incredible statistic for you: Google’s 2012 gross revenue was an eye-opening $50.1 billion. The company had 44,777 folks on its roster last year, so this equates to more than a million dollars ($1,120,553) of revenue per employee.
Not bad. So how does Twitter compare? Last year, Twitter’s 2,000 staff members tallied $317 million in gross revenue, which breaks down to $158,500 per person. In terms of profit, however, Twitter actually posted a loss in 2012, so each Twitter employee “lost” $40,000 overall. Only Zynga had a worse year amongst the top tech firms.
