Google is a great place to work for women. They are very flexible and the culture and environment are fantastic.

Although the company is male dominated, it is working hard to increase diversity. Still some mismatch between intent and practice.

Be very firm to set your own boundaries else you will be miserable; know your value and don't fall into the promotion trap as it not a totally fair and transparent process

    Flexibility can be a double-edged sword; There are times that It adds more stress since I feel I could never be off work and was expected to be "on" all the time (regardless i am in the office or not)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Depends what you want; It is still one of the best companies out there anyway.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

Due your due diligence about your team and boss. Be aggressive about your career and build strong networks as your boss is unlikely to help you with career development and there is little systemc support.

Great maternity and paternity leave. Flex schedules are possible, but subject to your manager's approval.

    Flexible options are subject to your manager's approval. That can be good if you have a supportive manager, but bad if your manager is not flexible.

There are pockets of amazingness - and overall most places are better than average. As with all large companies, strengthen your self-promotion muscles if promotion/advancement are your goal here.

Depending on the team that you work for, be prepared to keep all emotions in check lest you be judged for them. This includes joy and any type of warmth that can be seen as a weakness,

If you are technical or working in a predominately female group then you will have a good time, any engineering or other teams and you will have to deal with a lot a minor but consistently uncomfortable environment.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    There is an environment that is fundamentally unfriendly to female characteristics. Mixed messages abound between "speak up for yourself" and, "no one wants to work with her because she's not nice." Also, it seems they condone judging people (women, minorities, etc) under the guise that they are not "technical" enough, even when people have other valuable skills.

Terrific policies in place - but significant distance to go for women in leadership and in compensation
