I feel like in my particular role, women are treated on par with men. The real difference is more between the opportunities afforded to introverts v extroverts. Women represent a big percent of the sales force and they get promoted at a similar rate as men.
I never ran into anyone who was out-and-out sexist in the sense of putting down or even subtly excluding women. I never felt that my being a woman was ever a relevant fact in how people treated me. That said, Google is a HUGE company and my experience represents just one part of it.
This is a great company to work for. The maternity leave is apparently one of the best in the country. That being said, I think the US needs to get with the rest of the developed world and change their policy to allow women the ability to take one year off to spend with their new child. Its the right thing to do.
Google understands there are going to be biases in the workplace, and does a good job to head them on. I still think there is a big gap between men and women in leadership roles, even within departments that are split 50/50 with lower level employees.
I've worked here for 2 years now and I'd say for being in the Sales organization, it's mostly supportive of women in leading roles. It still skews male overall, but active conversations are happening about changing that.
