Microsoft posts record job growth

 71,533 employees as of 2006/06/30

Microsoft Corp. bulked up for battle with Google and other rivals by adding more than 10,000 employees worldwide in the past year -- the largest annual increase in the company's history.

New employment figures, quietly disclosed Wednesday on an informational section of the company's Web site, represent twice the amount of growth that Microsoft had publicly projected at the start of the fiscal year. The single-year increase is more than Google's entire work force.
