Desperate to hire more engineers and sales representatives to staff its rapidly growing search and advertising business, Google in typical eccentric fashion has created an automated way to search for talent among the more than 100,000 job applications it receives each month. It is starting to ask job applicants to fill out an elaborate online survey that explores their attitudes, behavior, personality and biographical details going back to high school.

Sometimes too much schooling will be a detriment to you in your job, Dr. Carlisle said, adding that not all of the more than 600 people with doctorates at Google are equally well suited to their current assignments.

This confirms my general impression of Google employees I have talked to.

IMO, the biggest challenge Google faces is growing cynicism within a workforce that is by and large over-qualified for their jobs and constrained by a suprisingly top-down structure.
