As a Google Engineer I challenge this stereotype

From what I have seen, the more senior engineers become, the less arrogant they tend to be

There are exceptions

But for the most part they have an increased knowledge of the vastness of the unknown and an appreciation for risks and tradeoffs

As a result they tend not to trend toward overconfidence and arrogant bragging as much as they are cautious in their projections and avoid absolutes

That having been said, the comic is funny
