Pretty great as a full-time employee. I've heard less positive reviews from TVCs.

The employee population is young, therefore not very family-oriented. You will not see many benefits for working parents. There is also a lack of diversity, and as a woman of color, I never felt comfortable in this environment.

Improve the performance review process. There is not much support, when your role is not a good match, and you have communication issues with your manager.

Don't just take the benefits, fight for the higher salary becuase the promotion process can be a frustrating blackhole where you are painted into a corner

Google is a wonderful place to work, but it is critical to set boundaries and stick to them. There will be people who work from 4a to midnight. If that is not your style, make sure to set expectations and be excellent at your job.

Depending on your manager and team, the hours can be pretty flexible. Work/life balance can be achieved as long as you maintain your boundaries.

There is a definite bias towards men being promoted and in senior leadership position vs. women. I'm in the sales org and I also find there is an unconscious bias that favors men.

Even though they have great policies , culture and all, it's still very male dominated in the top management. Many of the initiatives around diversity are just a check inte box and doesn't mean anything really.

There is no monolithic workplace culture at Google; by far, biggest determinant of your experience is your immediate team. I am lucky enough to have found a fantastic, supportive team that values work/life balance and diversity. My A+ ratings reflect my personal experience. I have heard many different (and similar) stories from women on other teams, though, and I know that my experience is not universal. My advice to a woman starting at Google is to assess your project options in terms of team culture and know that this will hugely affect your work experience.

It is very male dominated but there are lots of support groups for women and opportunities to network.
