The official policies are good re: gender, but you need to make sure you have a good manager who has your back

You will learn to tolerate being treated like a second-class citizen. Your management will tell you that gender bias doesn’t exist. Honestly, everything about the large tech companies from interview to employment is just hazing masquerading as normalcy. It’s no different here. There’s an obsession with hiring the best of the best. Put 10 socially inept “best” on a team, and you get most teams at Microsoft, Google and Amazon. If the teams were more diverse they would be smarter. It’ll be years before that sinks in.

    Am still trying to figure this out. I can afford to take unpaid time so I may take half my leave instead of the whole thing.
