I was recruited to come to Google Cloud and was sold on the Google culture. Let me be clear: Google Cloud is NOT Google. It's likely closer to Oracle or SAP. Leadership is constantly changing, which also means the direction/priorities are also always changing.
Google still needs to hire humans to get things done.
The company is a cult of amateurs who move from position to position within the company, taking their "experience" to start fresh and learn new positions. Every new arrival Is so smart, because they went to college and are now "Googlers" that they know how to fix everything and make it better, even if they don't know what a job or project actually entails.
Senior management is very stable and seems to relish or tolerate this chaos as some sort of professional development or as a way to churn out the undesirables.
The truth is that Google is an empty shell, supported by massive revenue from AdSense, its only valuable and really first product. The rest seems to be a journey to somewhere, but without "Rich Uncle AdSense" nothing else would be possible.
If you are lucky enough to land a good paying job here (there are some), do your work, keep your opinions to yourself and nod you head when they all say they are liberals, woke, Marxist, etc. They claim to be free thinkers, as long as you agree with them 100%.
This perspective applies to sales, marketing and doesn;t reflect on R&D, product development or anything that would be considered a STEM field, etc.
