    I have been working at Google (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Google has amazing people working there, and they are eager to help you learn as much as possible. The other benefits are just icing on the cake.

    Cons

    There are not that many women working at Google or in leadership positions there. This negatively affects the team dynamics, for both men and women. Women reading this - apply! Aim high! You can do it!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women, and you will find that team productivity will drastically increase. You also will probably find that the more women you hire, the more women will stay. This will be a positive cycle (although the opposite is also true).
