Google India employees write breakup letter to company: Here’s what they said


“It’s my turn to say goodbye to Google,” a sacked Google India employee shared his story on LinkedIn.

Google has terminated over 400 employees in India last month, and globally the tech giant has handed out pink slips to around 12,000 employees.

Deepak Jain, who worked for Google as an advertising solutions architect in Gurugram for almost two years, wrote on LinkedIn: “After almost 2 years it’s my turn to say goodbye to Google. thoroughly enjoyed! My role, along with that of many other Googlers in India, was also impacted by massive global layoffs.

“Although the circumstances feel like a punch in the stomach, I can only look back and be grateful for all the growth opportunities and milestones during this time and the role Google played in supporting them,” They said.

Jain graduated in Engineering in Computer Science and previously worked at Adobe for over six years (2015-2021).

Maintaining fighting spirit, he said: “I don’t know what lies ahead for me, but as Larry Page would say, I am uncomfortably excited for what is to come.”

“I am looking for a new role and would appreciate your support,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, another Google India employee who was laid off last month took to LinkedIn to share his plight, equating the feeling of job loss to a “breakup”.

Priyang Davey, who served as Creative Lead at APAC GTM Creative Works in Mumbai for nine months, wrote on LinkedIn: “My last few weeks have been eventful. I got a new bluetooth speaker, watched Night Manager which wasn’t so bad, and oh well! I’ve been removed from Google.

“It’s like a breakup. Sure, it sucks, but you’ll choose your next partner who is intelligent enough not to break up with you over a text (or an email),” he said.
