Does anyone know what’s the latest on Google Cloud’s reorg under TK?

I hear it’s been tough on recruiting.

Just curious if we can get some updates from GCP. In particular the sales team. Seems Microsoft is doing amazing right now, not sure which team I want to work for

    GCP hires even the trespassers.

      Pm on Google cloud, team uncertain. Didn't work out, no feedback so not sure what to think but I don't do well on completely hypothetical problems so that might be it

      I think they’re currently all over the place. I wouldn’t worry too much tbh. Maybe go PM at google (not cloud), you’ll prob have a better shot

    Can anyone corroborate this about the HC being removed for sales hires. I’m a bit suspicious. My timeline.
    1. Get told I’m being raced to HC and have a strong package
    2. Three days before HC hiring manager reaches out to me on LinkedIn to say they’d like me to meet with informally with another manager I’d be working with closely.
    3. I have a busy day job, so when this other manager fails to get in touch I send him a LinkedIn with my availabile times for the week. Total silence but they do view my LinkedIn profile
    4. The day after I’m supposed to get my HC response, I get told that TK has upended the sales recruitment process

    I’ve been royally shafted so many times by software vendors, I’m sick of these games. I just want to work as a passionate sales engineer with a good product to sell. Google or no google.

    TK just removed the HC step for sales people recruiting, that includes sales and customer engineers. Literally the day I was due for having my packet sent to HC lol

      Yeah so until they work out the new system for sales people, my candidate packet is sitting in the US awaiting some non-HC approval, god knows for how long or if l’ll get rejected based on the new process/criteria.

      The google hiring approach struck me as fair, and I was told I had a strong case in HC. Bah!

      Damn dude that worries me a little. Although I feel like if you got to HC then you will for sure get an offer soon (even if they are taking HC away). I would def talk to your recruiter tho and get a status

      I did talk to them, they’re apologetic and as frustrated as I am. The team I’m matched with can’t wait for me to start.

      Well it ain’t in the bag until you have a written offer, but thanks!
      I’m in overseas, but my packet is (yet to be) approved my a US team.
