Michael Lynch: Why I quit Google ❌ at

My career was being dictated by a shifting, anonymous committee who thought about me for an hour of their lives. Management decisions that I had no input into were erasing months of my career progress.

Worst of all, I wasn’t proud of my work. Instead of asking myself, “How can I solve this challenging problem?” I was asking, “How can I make this problem look challenging for promotion?” I hated that.

Well, yeah, but that's another axis.

It's like the Globex Corporation. Sure, they were working on a doomsday machine and ended up conquering the American East Coast, but the benefits and working environment were genuinely really great. ❌ at 2018-03-01T07:48:30Z
