2011到2012年间在Google+做设计师的经历

这篇长文是一系列 tweet 串起来的,这真是对当年在 Google 工作经历满满的抱怨啊。从找工作、被 low ball、埋头苦干没有全局观的垃圾产品设计,再到政治斗争、爱抢功劳的同事上司等各种吐槽。

感受一下语言风格:“Let’s call him Greg because his real name is just as vanilla. He was a smarmy, politically motivated little fella who had no intentions of ever leaving Google. He told me that. I didn’t like him from the moment I met him and the feeling was mutual.”

Networking for Nerds

三个人际交往的小窍门,中心思想是 make it easy - for people to keep you in mind, to help you, and to engage with you.

约人见面的邮件里,千万别说“我时间地点很灵活,你来决定吧”,这就把任务抛给了对方,如果对方是大忙人,恐怕就不搭理你了。要给出具体时间地点,有2、3个选项,例子:“Would you like to meet over coffee at Stable Cafe between 2-4pm on Thursday or Friday?” 

Self-serve first

好的软件/互联网公司普遍都是自助式的服务,用户(或广告商)自己到网站上(或app里)注册、刷卡、自学如何操作,一条龙自助的,很少有人类员工互动(如销售、客服等)。

康奈尔笔记法

课堂上做笔记、课后复习的方法,所谓的 Cornell Notes。

The SaaS Adventure

总结了成功的SaaS公司上市前的发展轨迹:找到 product-market fit,年入$200万(ARR),然后进入T2D3阶段 - 连续两年ARR翻三倍,然后连续三年翻两倍。ARR至少$1亿,然后上市。

所谓T2D3:连续两年 triple,然后连续三年 double。
