meritocracy in silicon valley is officially dead – diversity killed it
time to find a new industry. observations:
1) google and fb are so afraid of the outside and improving their diversity metrics that they have now instituted quotas for hiring only female candidates.
2) i recently interviewed a fb product manager candidate that should not have been hired but was hired anyway due to her being a female
3) teams actively discriminate against male candidates for engineering and product roles these days – i talked to a friend who is an amazing pm at google, he wanted to transfer to a team with an open pm headcount but was denied because the team was looking at only female candidates... what the fuck???
4) vc firms hiring opportunists and SJW activists from twitter to try to stay on the good graces of the god damn feminists of twitter
5) startups actively recruiting only female candidates to try to please the activists of twitter
6) google recently hired a head of diversity from intel who has the worst fucking ideas including quota system for diverse candidates
7) seems like the easiest place companies have found to add diversity is in non technical product management roles thus ruining the entire fucking field with absolute garbage people who have no business being a product manager.
so much more. add your experience here. is this happening at your company too?
