Former Google Employee Claims Company Fails 'Don't Be Evil' Mission

“I think the thing that was most painful for me as someone who tried to work within the system for the past nine years is that the person who brought the Dragonfly project to light went to the press first because they didn’t feel safe whistleblowing internally,” Fong-Jones said.

”And I think that marks a really dark turn for the company. If people don’t feel safe to voice their concerns internally and provide that early feedback, then it results in a lot worse of a public backlash than if we address things early.”

Even still, Fong-Jones says she doesn’t discourage people from joining Google, even those in marginalized groups. But she believes they should enter that culture with their eyes open.
