I suspect the transition to Waymo was flubbed. Also, the Google strategy of a few mapping cars running around is pretty clearly not going to collect the data tens of thousands of Tesla cars can collect: that's got to be frustrating to the team.

A lot of venture capitalists like founders to take out F-you money so they'll keep their eyes on the horizon instead of getting distracted by financials--and, no, a startup doesn't run quarter-to-quarter on financials.

The Google employees should have been emotionally committed to Waymo, but obviously they weren't. If they were unhappy enough to leave, in a sense, that's important information for Google (Alphabet). Better to know that now than in 2020 when the race is over.
