How often does Apple/Google PiP engineers ?

Asking out of curiosity as there aren't many data points on blind.

    Google PIPs just as much as those other three, but from my experience it’s quite taboo to talk about anything related to it. It’s not a part of the google culture I guess.

    After all, no company will survive if it harbors under-performers. Except maybe Cisco or something

      Or defense corporations. Or banks.

      Does google really need top performers anymore? They dominate search and rake it billions for it. I highly doubt that’s going to be disrupted.

      Of course Google needs top performers. Remember Yahoo, AltaVista, WebCrawler, etc search engines? Me either for the most part. Yahoo is a shell what it was. Google will end up that way if they don’t keep challenging employees and bringing on top performers

      Not exam but one should be able to complete all the assigned items and find a team willing to hire them.

      Failing to do will result in a fire 🔥. It’s not common but does happen

      OP
      Performance improvement plan/program.

      Basically a heads up saying you'll be soon asked to leave the company for performance reasons if you fail to blow our minds off in the next 6 months.

      It's possible to get out of PiP, but most people just quit the company
