    Source: I know the person. I don't know the harassment story(obviously since that is high level stuff). But learnt this from a reliable source.

    Person was not publicly fired (when was the last time Google publicly fired someone for sexual harassment before media reported it)?

    Sorry can't directly name. May be you can find out internally.

    I am no one to hold a grudge. The guy didn't even know of my existence.

    I personally have no evidence. I guess higher ups at G might have. I have no evidence for search/Android guy as well.

      Allegations are not baseless. If you are asking me for proof on harassment cases of execs, then even Amit and Andy would prove yo be innocent.

      The specific name and example of Amit came out so your reasoning if flawed.

      If no one knows how can we do anything about it. So either spill the name or what's the point of this post. We can't fire every single ex google person just in case he might be one.

      Some other Uber employee has narrowed down to 3 candidates. I think Uber can easily check on the three.

    A possible alternative headline: “Google rewards yet another sexual harasser senior exec with a quiet exit and a generous exit package”

      There was no generous exit package. However the first part is true as well. He was quietly laid off.

      How did you know there was no exit package OP? You sound more and more like a liar

      How do I know about the harassment? I know the whole story but I don't have any proof of it. I know that person was fired for the same reason. Hoping may be Uber can do some digging into the past of the employee.

    I don’t understand OP’s motive. If what OP says is true, OP should encourage another protest in Google and sue these senior execs back into jail to make sure the justice is done and time is served. Now don’t blame another company because it did not know the backstory. If you are kind or Google is, you should work with law enforcement to keep these guys in jail or castrated.

      Firstly as I said, I don't have first hand evidence of the harassment. Amit's and Andy's harassment was proved. Did they go to jail?

      That’s your job to throw them into jail since you are a fair Googler. There is no point discussing it with us if your company signed off these people with good terms.

      Well. I don't know what terms they parted the company with. All I know is the reason, the story.

    Please name the exec if you have first hand information. We definitely don’t want to work with anyone like that 🙁

    • Name the exec? What proof did OP provide to doxx someone like that?

      They may be guilty, but at this stage that’s a shitty thing to do.

    Yes let us know who was that person. The whole world should ensure that this person never gets employed ever after.

      God forbid there’s any due process. Right now we have no proof of what happened. OP could just be someone with a grudge.

      If I post this in Google lounge, what's the use. The guy no longer works at Google.

    • You should bring up the fact that this guy was quietly fired for sexual harassment so other Googlers look into it and hold leadership accountable.

    Sounds very untrue. Dara will not risk his career and hypothetical ipo just for some senior leader. But if you have evidence please share, let’s make sure it is not happening.

    This kind of rumor negatively affects all senior Xooglers who have joined Uber, including those with spotless records.

    I think you are evil, OP.

      I cannot directly name him since personally I have no proof against him (obviously).

      You admit then that yours was a baseless accusation. For all you know, he left for a completely different reason.

      You, on the other hand, have most certainly done a terrible thing here. Shame on you!

      OP
      I never admitted it's a baseless accusation. The accusation is valid just that I don't have any proof of it personally and I won't. I don't have any proofs of Amit and Andy as well so would you say the reports were incorrect? I am sure someone has the proofs and that's why he was fired. I know the story of what happened as well.

      There is nothing terrible in what I did. I just reported what has actually happened.

    When u go to interview Uber will talk about high ethical, but internally they do not do any ethical. At the end it’s come down to money 💰

    Yeeeeeaaaaa you're trying to paint Google in such a nice light here, completely ignoring Google's approach to "firing" them (ie letting them sneak quietly out the back door with comically large bags covered in dollar signs").

    If you actually want to talk about the core issues surrounding all of this, skip with the bullshit clickbait title.

      Was the victim given a choice in this? And if so, I guess you're in a position to know this, so perhaps you can connect the dots here for all of us?

      Also, do you know if Google was straight-forward when references were checked?

      Also, words actually have meaning. Quit quietly vs fired is quite different, you realize? You should consider the words you use, especially when titling your posts.

      There is nothing wrong in the title though. You are choosing the misunderstand it. Nothing can be done about it.

      Victim given a choice in what?

  • a company usually won’t release reason for termination. Unless a lawsuit is filed, no way to really know.
