Uber and now Google.

Uber, Google and the long, lingering tail of #MeToo

Uber’s top dealmaker, corporate development executive Cameron Poetzscher, resigned on Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported. It came less than a month after the newspaper reported he had been disciplined the year before, following an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations that included making suggestive comments about co-workers. Poetzscher, who had overseen some of Uber’s largest deals, was not initially terminated, but given a warning, a reduced bonus and sensitivity training.

Then on Thursday, the New York Times released a bombshell report about Google’s handling of past allegations, reporting that it had “protected” three executives over the past decade who were accused of sexual misconduct. The Times reported that Google paid Andy Rubin, who created the Android mobile software Google acquired, $90 million after he left in 2014 over an allegation of sexual misconduct. In another case, it did not fire an executive accused of groping an employee but accepted his resignation and negotiated an exit package, the Times reported.

    Not surprised but constantly disheartened by the state of our country.
