Does google have poor performers?
Do low performers exist at google? im talking about dead weight employees that for whatever reason produce extremely low work output. These employees span all intelligence levels. I have personally encountered many coworkers that fit into the category of “really smart, but cant get anything done.” sometimes these employees have impressive credentials with ivy league degrees but have difficulties with motivation, work management, and skill atrophy. They were smart enough to get into MIT but produce utter garbage and they produce it slowly like raw sewage seeping out of a pin hole leak.
id estimate that for all companies/teams ive been at per 10 engineers you’re bound to get at least 1 dead weight and probably another pretty trashy person on top of that. At companies with a higher bar you just get higher IQ deadweights but the high IQ deadweights arent any better than the normal IQ deadweights.
does a company as prestigious as Google have deadweights too?
