Stashed in: Yammer
Yammer offered a $25,000 signing bonus to Yahoo! employees who leave Yahoo! for Yammer after Yahoo! sued Facebook over patents. Yammer claims they received 70 resumes which led to 5 offers and two people accepted.
Three people got to the offer stage and turned them down even with the extra $25,000 at signing. Why $25,000? "Anything less wouldn't have been noteworthy and more would have been obnoxious" said CEO David Sachs.
