I am a xoogler. A friend of mine who is googler has direct reportees. He worked very hard for the last 2 yrs in building the team. Now 2 of his reportees decided to move coz they are not happy with promo & perf results. My friend believes both of them deserved better results and did all he can do. And now he has to literraly start from scratch.
I can give my own exp too. I mgr always used to talk about going to the next level and what needs to be done. We both knew its all BS and wont help the product in any way.
