"Great place to work overall, lots of flexibility and support! In terms of resources, you can find mentors, career coaches, and personal development opportunities (tons of trainings!), and employee resource groups that you can also serve as a great resource (including Women groups). "

"Look out for #1, nobody else will do so. Be careful whom you choose to trust because promises mean little and support vanishes quicker than the wind. "

"These comments apply to the engineering side of the house. Women in other parts of google may have different experiences. They make a big show of being pro-diversity, but do nothing to hold managers accountable for diversity goals. On the other hand, they do hold managers accountable for everything else. Release timelines, quality, reliability, etc. So what is a manager going to drop? They also make a big show of promoting work/life balance, but it will hurt your career if you believe it. They say, "take time off if you need it" they have generous seeming maternity and paternity leave. But they don't ease up the pressure on release timelines. They complain that the engineers have too low velocity. There is more work than there are people to do it, so if you take time off, you aren't a team player. If you take maternity leave, you are setting your career back 5 years. You won't get promoted for a long time. As a result, you get entire orgs that have almost no women. The orgs that do have women often have a glass ceiling on engineering roles just above the senior engineer level. The only way past that is to move to management. And there is a lot of pressure for women to move that way rather than growing their engineering skills to stay on the technical ladder. Google has engineering levels all the way up to equivalent with senior vice president. But there are very few women on the technical ladder above senior engineer. (equivalent to entry level manager)"

"Gender diverity is almost non existent. For managers no growth path forward if you are not willing to start doing IC work."
