    LinkedIn is awesome. Why do you want to join GCP? It's behind AWS, Azure, and even IBM.

      Even more reason to join imho.
      Google needs a cloud for themselves anyway, they aren't gonna use AWS and Azure. And it's Google, they'll make a better product than AWS and Azure. Which means an explosive growth is guaranteed in GCP.

      Azure has quantum computers.

      Google can definitely make a product that works well, but their customer support is really lacking.

    • IBM has quantum shit too. That doesn't make it relevant.

      Work in google. Get higher TC and buy AMZN. Meanwhile, chill and relax in GCP. 😎

    Been there. I know the feeling. Just because you weren’t a fit for the role this time doesn’t mean you’re not a good PM.

      Thank you, it really sends you for a spin when it's fresh.

      Yeah, I know. It sucks.

      Something to remember is that as structured as companies try to make it, the interviewing process is noisy af.

      Especially for product management (where responsibilities and skills often span the arc of a project), it’s a hard thing to gauge someone’s abilities in 45 minutes. That means, especially for competitive roles, that there can be a lot of false negatives.

      And sometimes you’re having an off day, sometimes your interviewer’s having an off day, sometimes your strengths just don’t align with the strengths that they need right now.

      I’ve been rejected by companies before, and gotten offers from those same companies later. So don’t take it too hard.

    It stings like a b*tch for the first week and I started hating the GBus every time I saw it on my way to work ... but things don’t always go as per plan. Remember this pain and let it fuel your next attempt ( if you plan too) G is a dream, and dreams are not easy.

    Google is one of the harder interviews but there seems to be a random element to how you are perceived during interviews. I’ve had two people I’ve mentored get hired there but they rejected me recently so that stings too.

    Study hard and practice and hit them again in a year.

      OP
      Feedback was very vague, they talked about improving product design and strategy which to me points at interviewers not liking my answers to the case questions
