Early on during my time at Google I would use the term as a general word for "the right thing to do". I was so naive and unaware.

Had to learn the hard way that that's not what "Googley" means. I'm more conscious of the harm in such explicit in-group vs out-group language now.

"That's not Googley" --> you are breaking some in-group unspoken rule, and I am too lazy to try to articulate what that rule is

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.

Dude 2: Hey, hehe... let's be Googley here! Pausing the meeting like this is really uncomfortable for Dude 1.

Me: And being credential checked or assumed ignorant, is awkward for black folks. Most black folk in tech tolerate this. Not me. I'm the other kind of black dude.

From a homepage of a company that purports to help you "build better teams". They'll optimize away all those pesky interpersonal interactions, and help you deal with all those scary "individuals".

Going through the messy process of trying to come up with company values at the start up org where I currently work. Anyone have good resources on and ? Of course I'm coming in strong with the vibes and I'd love to convert my team ;)
