+ - Former Google Employee James Whittaker Calls Google+ A Failure->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Former Google employee James Whittaker channeled his inner “Greg Smith” and posted a rant about why he quit his job at Google, which he blames on the failure that is Google +. According to Whittaker there are two eras of Google: “Before Google+” and “After.” The “before” era was “run like an innovation factory” while the “after” era was predominately Google “competing with Facebook” in a “corporate mandate” from CEO Larry Page which was unsuccessful. “Google was the rich kid who, after having discovered he wasn’t invited to the party, built his own party in retaliation. The fact that no one came to Google’s party became the elephant in the room,” he said. Whittaker said he couldn’t even get his teenage daughter to approve of Google+, which influenced his decision to quit as the head of the Google+ engineering team."
