So, the author of the now infamous ex-Googler email has been revealed, and Geoffrey Elliott is none too happy about the whole situation. See, he worked at Microsoft, left to start a startup, the startup got bought by Google, and he left Google to return to Microsoft. His Microsoft recruiter sent him some questions about life at Google, and in the context of a private conversation, he sent along his thoughts.
That is a shame that his privacy has been ruined like that. Isn’t job interview contents supposed to be kept in between the applicant and the authorized person in HR just as the recommendation letters are kept sealed until it is delivered to the recruiting HR people?
