I am interested in one position I found on google careers but I am 4 months pregnant. Googlers - can you give me an honest feedback on whether I should apply now or just wait till my maternity leave is done? If I apply and resume gets shortlisted - I definitely plan to tell the recruiter upfront but will it affect my application process ?

Google goes above and beyond to accommodate for this kind of stuff. I say apply. Could it hurt your chances? Maybe, if all other factors are equal. But I doubt it’ll be a make or break.

Do not feel that you need to tell anyone about your pregnancy while interviewing. This is one area where WFH has perhaps leveled the playing field for women.

My colleague got hired and started at 6 months pregnant, left 2 months later for mat leave. Google hires for the long haul view.

I wouldn't worry about it. The application process itself can take months, and it's hardly unusual for people to push out their start dates by several months.

You do not have to disclose your pregnancy while interviewing and no one should be asking, either. Agree that Google hired for the long haul. Good luck!!

A girl on one of our teams got a rushed offer from the recruiter when they found out she was in labor and she literally accepted from the hospital. She gave birth the next day, so her first day employed at Google was also her first day of maternity leave. They rushed it to give her the benefits before the baby was born. You have NOTHING to worry about, move forward with the interview !

Hey fellow 🐠 just wanted to have a place to share without coming off as boastful on social media. I recently was able to pay off my massive student loan debt and car loan as well. I’ve saved 20k in cash (which could last me over a year since I live in low COL city) and have 20k in my 401k. I know it may not be much to other consultants, but I’m only 24 and went through an abusive childhood so I feel incredibly grateful to be where I am today. Thank you for letting me brag on myself!

Newer partner and first time having extra money to invest. I’ve maxed my 401k contributions past few years and currently have the rest in a brokerage account.

I think the offer they gave was fair with market price & it pays more than my current job + benefits. I've been told to always negotiate but should I in this case?
