    Default Why do people quit their jobs at dream/big companies?

    Why do people quit their jobs at dream companies like Facebook or Google?

    I can only speak for my own decision to leave Google in 2010. It's a great company full of amazingly talented people with access to incredible resources.

    So why leave? Google was simply too big for me. I'd come from Endeca, a startup that I helped grow from a founding team to 500, and I didn't realize how different it would be to join a large company where the connection was inherently less personal. It simply wasn't a good fit for me.

    I left Google after a year to join LinkedIn -- then a 700-person company -- and my role there was much more expansive and more personal. In my 4.5 years there I worked with groups across the company, getting involved any effort where I could productively contribute. It was awesome!

    But growth happens. By the time LinkedIn reached 7000 people it wasn't the same company for me. I was ready for something small again -- and something far more personal.

    So I joined a health care company as CTO in May 2015, with the goal of helping improve the lives of millions of people. It turned out that wasn't my dream job either. So now I'm taking a break from full-time work, doing an assortment of advising, consulting, speaking, and writing.

    In short, there's no such thing as a dream company. It's up to us to dream, and to find the opportunities that align with those dreams. Good luck finding yours!

    Never heard about any case, but I find your post rather interesting, thanks. I want to work at big company or huge corporation, I always dreamt about it. I even pre-ordered resume templates from , can't wait to check them.
