...a firm named WebSourced Inc. advises 1,200 companies on the best strategies for search engine marketing and said it is adding new clients at the rate of about 100 per month. The company appears on track to more than double its revenue from $7 million last year to more than $15 million this year, and its growth from 50 to 90 employees in the past six months has prompted it to expand its office space from 7,500 to 31,000 square feet.

That puts revenue/employee at $140K currently and projects $160K for the next year. Doubling grevenue and improving productivity is a very nice combination if it can be achieved.

However, sometimes managing that scale of growth comes with many unanticipated costs.
