If a person does not cope with his duties, or does nothing at all, the manager must first conduct a conversation with such an employee, offer assistance.
If after a month the situation has not been corrected, then the assistant is allocated to the employee, who should “pull” him.If this did not help, a series of additional conversations, reminders, and warnings follows, and only after six months can such an employee be dismissed.

However, this is very rare. First, the selection of employees is thorough, and is carried out in many ways (gifted lazy people are not needed here). Secondly, the very atmosphere in Google pushes fruitful work.
