Lots of good pros and cons for working at Google, but you have to love his simple one-word con on the “corporate culture” side of things: “Google+”.
He elaborates a bit in a footnote:
I think Google+ is an effort that does not deserve the engineering minds at Google. This is mostly a personal bias. I see Google as solving legitimately difficult technological problems, not doing stupid things like cloning Facebook. Google, in my opinion, lost sight of what was important when they went down this rabbit hole.
Tipping is not alone in this feeling.
