An organisation that treats its programmers as morons will soon have programmers that are willing and able to act like morons only.

Unfortunate reality of corporate interviewing process is that perception is everything. If someone out of several people who interviewed you felt in some way uneasy - you are done! It happenned to me on multiple occations when I learned later that some shmuck would say "I would not feel comfortable working with him" and that was it! There was no logical explanation, just someone's insecurities and emotional crap at their best. Also US has so called "affirmative action" that mandates companies to hire people by quote. For example, if gays represent 3% of population, then company must have 3% of its employees gays. Same goes for blacks, hispanics, indians etc... The rule of the thumb: the bigger company the less white people work there. Also there is influx of indian programmers in US. So I would not be surprised if they hired one of those in your place, because once you have one of them it'll be tenfold really soon. If that's the situation in Google I feel sorry for them because those guys write horrible code. Bottom line - don't regret, it was for the best, you'll see!
