Google: Rejected at exec review

After HC approval, my profile was rejected by exec review stating "found some weaknesses in my interview packet". No specific weakness was informed to me. I don't have an option to improve now since I don't know what those weaknesses are. Did anyone experience like this after interviewing with GPI ORG?

I didn't have any team match before exec review.
Total time: 3+ weeks

    Not diverse enough. It’s about quotas. You won’t want to believe it, but this is the practice nowadays.

      Exact same thing happened to me not too long ago & was already team matched. Frustrating.

    I had this happen, but in my case I had previously quit Google after accepting an offer (big mistake).

    This is big. Like losing $100k+ just for the one year you need to wait to apply again

    Usually it means the interview scores were mixed, and HC decided to move forward, but Offer review didn't like the feedback. Def try again in 12 months

    Had a similar experience 3 years ago. Team selection was done, but got rejected at by SVP when they reviewed my package.

      I was at VMware at that time. Applied for Netflix after that. So, no my comp was not high.

    Giving feedback opens the door for legal issues. So recruiting feedbacks are strictly supposed to be non-informative.
    Don’t try.

      Never got any info regarding level, which usually comes after successful exec review. But I was guessing L4

      No HC defines the level... they should be able to tell you the level its not confidential

      When I asked about this recruiter told me that my level would be disclosed only after exec review. I don't have any concrete info besides this.

  • How are your social media profiles? Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, insta, etc? Anything on there that a search of your profile would find and throw up a red flag?

      I don't know if that counts. Anyways I'm very infrequent user on FB. I retweet mostly tech content. My insta is private. My LinkedIn has lot of info about the talks I delivered.

    What’s your academic record like? Maybe they didn’t like your GPA.

    Might have been something they heard from a friend or colleague. Remember the tech industry is small...lots of connections out there. Did you piss someone off? Did you rock the boat? Stories get around.

      That's all what I got. If requested for any more information, I would get a reply " unfortunately we don't have any other information. Try in 12 months."
