WLB and flexibility of working hours at Google for parents of young children?
Just wondering, what's the work life balance / flexibility of working hours like for parents of young children at Google?
If you need to drop your kid off at daycare and then drive to work, given the horrible commute in the Bay Area, you might not reach the office till 9:30-9:45 am. And then if you have to pick up the kid in the evening before 6:00 pm, you may have to leave the office by 5:00 pm. Of course, one parent can do the drop off while the other parent does the pick up. But essentially you have to either come into the office late in the morning or leave early in the evening.
Does Google allow this kind of flexibility in working hours for parents of young children in general? How much does it depend on the individual manager?
- Google UWaterlooBeen maintaining 9:30-4 with occasional wfh. Depends on the team though.
