Fired Google engineer James Damore says company is ‘like a cult’

The Google engineer fired for writing a controversial memo about diversity has gone beyond referring to the company as an “echo chamber” that won’t stand for dissent and now says it’s “almost like a cult.”

In an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, James Damore gave his explanation for why he was fired, taking a shot at the company’s culture and its famous motto.

“For many, including myself,” he wrote, “working at Google is a major part of their identity, almost like a cult with its own leaders and saints, all believed to righteously uphold the sacred motto of ‘Don’t be evil.'”
