"Be prepared to see the bias very clearly. Don't be afraid to be outspoken about it, although if you don't present your thoughts in a stereotypical "feminine" fashion (full of a soothing voice, somewhat timid, with a smile and in a caring tone) you will likely not be heard by many. If you enjoy engineering you'll get to work with some top talent and on some very cool projects. However don't expect to be treated fairly, promoted or paid fairly. "

"They discriminate by leveling you lower than men, and it is very hard to change your level within first 2 yrs setting u up to get less pay and respect than male colleagues. My male colleagues are 10 years less experienced and make double my salary for the same job and performance after 6 years at google. Also, they do not understand women's health. I needed 4 months reduced time off for hormone therapy after miscarriages and it wasnt approved. My colleague left for 6 months to get transgender hormones. I support her change, but i was hospitalized twice, and we lost our baby."

"The average employee is a 28 year old, male who is unmarried and without kids. The few women will use there gender status to prop up and extremely sexist culture. There's no future for anyone with kids or looking to grow their career. And as a result, turnover is the highest I've ever seen."

"I was breastfeeding at work and this was completely disrespected. Meetings would be scheduled over times I needed to pump. I had to change my pumping schedule multiple times to accommodate changes in overnight meetings. Ethics helpline, senior management and the EEOC did nothing. From peers to the legal department, no one speaks out about the violations. However free food and lactation rooms shouldn't be an excuse for discrimination, so parents need to know what they are getting into because your family life will be violated."

"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."

"I worked at Google for eight and a half years. I will say that I had the good fortune to be on a marketing team that was 95% women, and prior to that I was in HR, which was also majority women. I think that within those teams, I found the respect and fair treatment that I wanted. However, I will say that I think there are certain parts of the company that women and people of color are pushed towards (ie, the non-technical side of the house) and that definitely has an effect on my experience. I do think that sometimes it can be hard to be young and female at Google, especially on more male dominated teams with older men. You have to shout really loud and be extremely aggressive to gain respect for your opinions."

"It's a lovely place to work, as long as you don't rock the boat. Except climbing the career ladder to be constant fight to prove your competency. Ideally, find and stick with a good manager, who will know you and give you opportunities to develop. Changing manager will set you back on average 6 months, in my experience. The majority of women have issues with their careers after maternity leave, unless they are still in a basic individual contributor role."

"I'm worked here for 5 years in a software engineering role. I've been on several teams, and there has never been another technical woman on my team. I have often been asked if I am the PM or UX designer. In terms of career advancement, it seems that more aggressive personalities (more often male) tend to end up in leadership roles, which I find frustrating. The upside is still pretty good (compensation and perks are outstanding), but despite that, I feel like I constantly need to prove myself when working with new people, and it is difficult to see male colleagues (no more qualified than myself) move into leadership positions ahead of me."

At the same time, when I found out I was paid significantly less than a male peer with less experience, my [female] VP's response was - "some people negotiate better than others." and a senior male exec recently "asked" me about my dedication post kids, mentioning his wife stopped working after having the same number of kids i do."

"There is a lot of talk about being supportive of flexible working arrangements, however this is heavily dependent on your manager. Some managers are incredibly supportive and others are not at all.

"The best thing you can bring to working here is an aggressive confidence in your training and your abilities. Iron-clad self-esteem and a strong sense of "your input is not necessary to my life" also work well. Then you must cloak all of this in a stunning amount of kum-bay-ya deference and equivocal language. You will still be hammer for being too aggressive and not a team player but perhaps it won't matter to you so much if you know all of this ahead of time. Men will talk over you in meetings and when you call them on it, you get spoken to about your attitude. Even better--you will be listened to in silence and then ignored. This is not all men at the G--it is all of the men over 35--which is all of upper management. The younger the man, the more willing they are to work well with others. PS--you will never be promoted here."

"I have worked at Google for four years. I believe that it is an environment where women are fairly treated and listened to, but the only real female leadership and middle management is in sales and operations. It's rare to find women (much less, minorities) in leadership in eng, especially at the mid-level. This creates an unspoken tech-bro culture that can be pretty exhausting to navigate. It's not impossible, but it takes an effort that I would rather put into getting shit done."

We are growing though, and it is great to see that many of us had a chance to be recognized and promoted. Maternity leave is very generous, and you don't have to take it all at once. However it is still a male dominated world, and us girls have to stick together."

All my male colleagues appreciate the diversity I bring to the team and are extremely supportive. Despite the fact that Google reflects the natural gender and racial trends of the tech industry overall, they seem to place a huge emphasis on improving and constantly celebrate the diversity they do have. As long as you are fine being surrounded by many more male colleagues (at least on the technical side), this is a fantastic place to work."

"There is a pretty diverse group of both men and women in my department. However, the women are more in support roles than engineer roles. I am the only female engineer of 9 team members. However our manager is a female engineer. Her boss, a director, is also female. The male memebr ao my team have no issue reporting to a female and taking her lead. When I joined, all of them treated me like everyone else. I'd say they treated me equally despite our gender difference but in all honestly it was more like, they didn't seem to care that I was a different gender. Its a nonissue. I feel free to be myself, feminine at times, and talk about my kids constantly. When I had to.miss work for a sick kid, all of them treated me with sympathy. Many fathers themselves, understood the work/life struggle. Ive been given the freedom with my time at work to have time for my kids after work as well. Leaving early when I need to, etc. From the CEO down, they stongly encourage inclusiveness and it shows! Women might not have the rquality in engineer toles, but it's not from a lack of trying."

"I've worked here for 8 years. I have a woman boss (also a mom). When I went on maternity leave, she did not want me to take the full amount the company allows and have heard from 2 other women they had similar experiences. She phrased it as "well, most people don't take the whole 3 months, so just let me know when you plan on returning, because lots of things can change." She has systematically demoted (by placing layers in between) women with children with unmarried women or men. She did this to me while on maternity leave as well as got rid of my flexible time and working from home ability. I still score "exceeds expectations" in reviews. I have talked to other executives about this problem and have gotten a "it's something we need to take a look at" response. I won't be there much longer."

"I wish that I had more courage to take initiative for things I was passionate about and the direction of my own career earlier on. The didn't prevent me from taking on new opportunities, but certainly did not make these opportunities clearly available to me. I wish I would have learned earlier that I was responsible for driving my own career in the direction that I wanted it to go. Would certainly give this advice to others!"

In general I have felt supported in terms of work flexibility (work where/when I need to) but I have yet to hear a case where a working mom goes part time to be with her kids more and has it "really" work... in all cases they end up working far more hours than they get paid for."

"I haven't had a child of my own yet, but am thinking about having my first in the next 2 years. The reason I'm staying at this company is I see many women here with 1-4 kids who are doing a great job of balancing work and family. The culture here for the most part allows employees -- men and women alike -- to have that work-life balance. Seeing other women here succeed at this makes me feel like it's a feasible goal for other women who aren't there yet."
