    I have been working at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Google used to be a place where the best ad brightest would gather to build something amazing that would solve some problem. Now, with Thomas Kurian and his new posse, it's clearly becoming Oracle. We should just change the name to Oracle 2.0 since Google is effectively dead.

    Cons

    In June 2019, leadership had a bright idea to redesign our compensation plan by moving it from a 50/50 split to a 40/60 split. Thus, 15 - 30% salary reductions for all sales. Mine was a $25K reduction. On paper, having a 40/60 split would be amazing because we can make more on the upside. The reality is that with a revenue recognition model that is based on consumption, you will need a healthy consumption machine to hit your number. Google has made it clear they want new logos at the sake of large enterprise deals. Large deals take too long so go find some small workloads. Skip trying to develop a large oppty, just find some low hanging fruit. It was no shock that PH and Klayko was bounced. The challenge is the rest of the clowns in leadership. Chicago office has 2 - 3 managers who should be released. NYC has at least 5. Austin is hilarious. Seriously, these guys??? LOL. Time will tell but I bet a bag of breakfast tacos that all of them will be out by year's end (2019).
