Ex-Google employee James Whittaker vents anger on Microsoft Blog
James Whittaker, one of the ex-employees of Google Inc., recently vented out his anger on a Microsoft blog and created a stir. Whittaker is now a Microsoft employee and blasted the search engine giant on March 13, 2012.
Whittaker blamed it all on the Facebook competitor Google + and said that the he was passionate about the company which had empowered his employees to innovate. The ex-Google employee headed an engineering team for the social network Google+.
Whittaker added that Google that he left was an advertising company with a single corporate mandated focus. James joined the search engine company in the year 2009 and left last month.
The ex-employee described the company by dividing it into two eras one is before Google+ and the other is after. In his view, the after part is pretty terrible and said that its engineers were once given the resources and time to be creative.
Such an experimental approach had created many home run hits like the Chrome and Gmail. Whittaker also said that the search engine failed when it started competing with Facebook with the help of its Google+. On the other hand, the spokesperson from Microsoft and Google refused to comment.
