Their sales staff is arrogant and has no idea how to sell into F500 type companies.
Source: 10+ meetings, with different clients, I attended where the Google sales pitch was basically "we are smarter than you, and you will succumb". The Borg approach. Someone needs to revamp the G sales and support approach if they want to grow in the cloud space.
The other funny thing is the package had a neoprene sleeve for a Chromebook. Eventually a sales person reached out via email assuming I owned a Chromebook and acted like I owed them a phone call because they gave me a neoprene sleeve I couldn’t use.
The entire package ended up going in the trash, which was an unfortunate waste of unrecyclable materials.
"People who will look through every bit of advertising crap company x sends", vs those who don't.
Something, somewhere is probably making stats on that. ;)
Well, that seems to be the approach at Google. Starting with hiring
Not surprising they end up with a hivemind that can't see past their mistakes.
And I've seen it cause them to lose at least 10 potentially good sales.
They have advantages but they're so arrogant that it puts people off.
It's more than 10 times or more people told me they prefer Google's solution to Microsoft or Amazon's but they're going with a competitor because they can't stand Google's arrogant attitude. It's close to laughable because of throwing money away just because they won't back off.
