In no company is it a good idea to publicly disagree with the Company, its policies, or the CEO. So a couple are almost understandable. But that's generally on ideas of business, vision, and things like that. On disagreeing with corporate culture? Personal or political beliefs are usually more allowed to have some disagreement. Google blurs the lines between personal and work, then complains when some people don't like the outcome.
I like Google. They've done some shitty things, but they do some good things. I love some of the people that work there, who are friends. I think the world is still net better off with Google than without it -- but I was much more confident of that 10 or 20 years ago, and the trend has been down. If it keeps going, I'm not certain that I'll be able to say that in 10 or 20 more years. I certainly disagree with them when they act like a cult. Some of it is overstated and some of it is real. But I'm complaining about some of the real stuff. Conservatives there are treated like shit, and that's wrong. I'd have the same problem if LGBT's, blacks, Jews or Women were treated like shit in any organization that I worked at. It's a job. If you're not adult enough to separate your work from your coworkers religious or political beliefs, then YOU are the one with the problem, not them. And if HR is militarizing your grievances, then they are the problem. Google HR has a fucking problem.
