Very generous plan with the paternity leave recently increased to nearly match maternity leaves. People seam to be quite happy with that.

Paternity leave is now 12 weeks, as others have said. I took paternity leave last year and it was great! Everyone was very supportive. My teammates picked up the slack with no complaints, and my director insisted that I take the full leave that we are allowed. Not only is the policy generous, but the atmosphere at Google is such that you can take the full leave and not hurt your career.
