Jack Poulson, who quit Google in September over its search project in China, spoke about the company's culture of secrecy.




He said managers are more concerned with stopping leaks than anything else.




Poulson cited an engineer yelling "f--- you leakers" at an all-hands meeting as an example of the attitude to leaking.




Court documents and concerned employees have previously given a picture of the extreme lengths to which Google goes to protect its secrets.



A senior former Google employee who quit over its controversial plans to launch a search engine in China painted a picture of a company whose upper echelons are obsessed with stopping leaks, to the exclusion of almost anything else.
Jack Poulson, a former researcher at the company, said that senior managers consider the prevention of leaks to be their "number one priority."
In comments reported on Saturday by The Times of London, Poulson cited as an example of the anti-leak culture an an unnamed senior engineer taking the microphone at an all-hands meeting to yell "F--- you leakers" at his colleagues.
