Google @ ISB

Today we had Prasenjit Phukan, Sr. Product Manager of Google visit ISB. He gave us a talk about Google and their plans for India. An ISB alum, Ravi who is an Operations Manager there accompanied him. Apparantly Google India is looking for a few Product Development managers of good calibre. I had the opportunity to have dinner with him along with a few other Google interested people. We had a good chat session with him over dinner pitching forward some ideas and areas where Google can grow and stuff. From what he says, Google India seems like an interesting place to work. Previously, I wouldn't have thought of applying to Google in the placement season. But, I think I have changed my mind now. Since, I have been interested only in Tech Product Development roles, and Google India is now looking for Product Development Managers, I think I might actually fall on their radar with my product focussed background at Seagate. Maybe my M.S. can also fetch me a few brownie points here. Let's see.

Dear Manu,

Thanks for providing the peek into ISB life. What is the average Salary that Google provides for its Product Management/Operations functions. Any ball park figure for previous ISB guys who made to Google

I wonder if MBAs really make sense for them as they could well do their jobs with techies

Thanks
