@Google, is your company filled with SJWs?

I have an offer from google but am hesitant to take it because of all the headlines recently.

I don’t want to be written up for a “microaggresion” or “mansplaining” so wanted to see how many folks you interact with that are SJWs. Is that concentrated in specific orgs? I’m looking at Google assistant org specifically.

    Here’s a pro tip. Don’t be an ass hat and you’ll probably be fine.

      Also the ok symbol now means white supremacy and gets censored on the news

    • If you are doing something (even something generally innocuous) with the intent to be an ass hat, then, sir, you are an ass hat.

      The issue is that anyone with autism or Aspergers has no idea what “being an asshat” means. And overly sensitive people pounce on them for the slightest social faux pas

    • I agree that people should be more sensitive to those that don’t understand that what they say can be offensive or hurtful. I think part of D&I trainings is to educate about and change that behavior.

      "Just don't be an asshat" <--- what Nazis told the Jews. SJW's think anyone not giving them their way all the time is an asshat.

      I disagree with liberal ideology all the time and I’ve never been called a Nazi...weird.

    Yes but you don't interact with those people. They are too busy doing their diversity conferences and explaining how diversity improved engineering that they don't have time to actually contribute or attend design meetings

    Interesting how you'd rather avoid change than evaluate yourself and make changes there instead. How sad.

      What does this even mean?

      I want to know what I’m stepping into. The last thing I want is to end up killing my career because someone has an Ax to grind against me because I’m a straight white male

      Woah Apple... did you just use those words all in the same sentence? Straight...white...male... we can't be having that.

      I like Apple.

      Much less SJW and virtue signaling than other bay companies despite an openly gay CEO

    Based on what you've been posting in this thread, you don't belong at Google anyways 😂

    If you are already thinking like this Google Isn’t the place for you. You won’t like the culture and the culture won’t like you. Find a different company.

      A person does not have to know they are committing a micro aggression to commit a micro aggression. Sounds like you need a little refresh on SJW concepts.

    Google is constantly on the witch-hunt. They are silently firing hundreds of people per quarter for various bullshit reasons.

      This is not true. You've got to do a lot to get fired at Google. There are many many people that should get fired but aren't, and this is on both radical ends of the radical spectrum (though mostly the left)

      Sure, there is enough work for the death squad.

  • Google blah🤯
    Not many SJWs in my team, I think it's org specific. Besides, after going through Noogler orientation you will know what to do and what not to do, could take a month to get the feel of the culture.

    Most of the publicly toxic people I know, or know of, at Google are actually quite pleasant within their own teams. There are definitely company wide asshole sjws but you're probably not going to interact with them personally unless you hang out on the politically sensitive mailing lists, so don't, and don't be a jerk, and you'll be fine.

    The negative impact the SJWs are having on the company overall is a lot more relevant, and is probably worth some concern.

      You'll find out lol. Topics on 'ethics', 'politics', and the 'industry'

    Sounds like you’d fit in great at Amazon.

      From what I've seen, Amazon focuses on getting shit done and not on identity politics.

    Let’s put it this way: I don’t know anyone who is NOT an SJW that isn’t also an ahole
