Three former employees of advertising giant, and free maps, enterprise Google have filed suit against the giant for gender inequality and discrimination.
Former employees at Google recently filed a lawsuit against the company on the basis of gender inequality and discrimination. The plaintiffs, Kelly Ellis, Holly Pease, and Kelli Wisuri suggest that Google systematically keeps women in lower compensation levels than men with equal or lesser skills and education even though they do similar work.
Due to the extensive records that Google is required to keep regarding pay, job classifications, and other employment records, the plaintiffs hold that although it currently does nothing to fix the situation, the company should be well aware the discrimination occurring.
For example, Ellis, who had four years of previous experience, was hired as a software engineer at a Level 3 job position, a level at which Google typically hires recent college graduates. Meanwhile, a man who was hired at a similar time with similar experience, was hired at a Level 4 position.
Pease, who had worked for the company for several years, was kept on the lower “non-technical” ladder which holds less opportunity for promotions and less compensation than the “technical” ladder despite her multiple leadership positions and experience at managing those on the “technical ladder”.
Holly Pease is a fantastic engineer and a wonderful senior executive manager of engineering groups. I know, I worked for her.

In either case, it’s safe to say that locomotives have long carried a unique sense of awe and scale, especially when they’re hundreds […]
