Director of Engineering

Google

January 1970

Seemingly good for younger women; most of senior technical women are pushed out. The politics are fierce. Never underestimate the power of a 10-year Googler no matter whether they have any, even rudimentary, domain knowledge. Many 10 year googlers don't seem to actually accomplish much other than preserving their positions and whispering into the right ears.

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.

It is male-dominated because there are so many engineers but they try hard to support women in all roles.

Say goodbye to your personal life if you start working here. "Work life balance" is a fairytale.

The perks and benefits are wonderful but there are few women in senior leadership roles and the "bro-mance" culture does seem to be in play.

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.
