This whole thread is worth a read.
A thing that particularly bothers me is how "Googley" (and other similar terms at other companies) is used as code for "don't step out of line", without having to ever be explicit about what the expectations actually are.
What was your role in Google and is there a reason you no longer work there?
I was a Software Engineer, at various times worked as a TL and as a manager, as well.
I worked there for 9 years, left years ago now. Many reasons to leave -- but mainly I was increasingly frustrated/disappointed with the company.
I'm aware of them, but I haven't been involved.
