Women in Tech

Do you expect women engineers to be less efficient than men?

Do you think they are less opinionated or don’t perform as well?

    I have other things to worry about than the gender of the engineers on my team. Got to make sure they grow their careers, are happy, deliver their code on time, don't design terrible things that won't be maintainable, figure out our roadmap for the next quarters, advocate for our team, etc.

      You can apply for LinkedIn, we're a pretty good company if you're worried about gender stuff. At least the female engineers on my team seem happy, can't vouch for the rest of the company.

    If anything, I’ve found that engineers who are women are better at their jobs the older they get. Family life pulling on their time requires them to be efficient and laser focused while they’re working. Men around me seem to slack off and shoot the shit a bit more, I guess because they have wives or younger engineers picking up their slack, and they don’t feel they have to prove themselves as much. Women have to prove themselves because of dumb questions like OPs.

    No. I had worked with women engineers who were really talented. I feel motherhood and family commitments makes them stagnated at work. If they can overcome it, they can be more successful than they are today(I am not generalizing every women, atleast 50% of them)

      Wouldn't it be great if father's shared more of the caregiving role? Just because women birthed the kid does Not mean they are defacto saddled with the caregiving responsibility. I asked my future husband (SWE) if he wanted to stay home and raise our kids when we were dating. He said no. I told him, I don't mind popping the kids out, but I can't work bring home the bacon (I was doing 3x+ as him when we meet) , and be primary caregiver. He said no, so we don't have kids 🙂

      I feel You both could have shared the responsibility of taking caring of the kid but still this is your own preference and decision, I respect that.

    Usually similar efficiency but from my experience, men work longer hours on average

      Longer hours doesn’t justify the quality of work unless or until it’s a on call support. Women take less breaks than men 😜

      The bar is higher for men to meet the same standard...so I see them putting in more time because of it

    Depends completely on the person.

    Although with a lower bar, over time more mediocre women will get offers.

    I have a few female colleagues in my current team. Except one, everyone is pretty good at what they do. So it is just the individual's drive for quality and excellence. Gender is not a factor.

    No. Fewer women in tech does not mean that they are worse than men. Think about it. This is a common form of bias.

    I run into the same percent of girls who are way smarter than me as I do guys proportionately, so no, not really.

    Nop. My wife is also in tech. And she is really good with her work 💃 What I realized is women are too good with time management and finishing work on time and efficiently.

    No because in this era of gender bending I am unable to distinguish which is which.
