Google's First Impressions

A recent Google search for a company in my area yielded some surprising results. I saw a former coworker's employer on and decided to checkout the company. Well, it turned out to be an information technology consulting company. The first few hits were all from third-party job posting sites. Note: all of the postings were for mainframe positions--Yuck!

Anyway, I kept looking for the company's home page to show up. It didn't--well, not at first. It wasn't until page 2 of the Google results. Here's the kicker: the first page to show up for the company in my Google search was not the home page--it was the company's online exit survey!

The first presentation I receive from the company is an automated exit survey! How much turnover do they really have that they would need an online exit survey? At least they're somewhat organized about how they process exiting employees.
