Leaked data reveals the extent of wage disparity among Google employees by gender and race!

Leaked data reveals the extent of wage disparity among Google employees by gender and race!

Leaked data, published by Insider, revealed the average wage of employees at Google, and the extent of the difference according to gender and race.

The leaks claimed that black employees at Google receive $20,000 less on average than their white colleagues. Women also earn less than men in almost every department.

The data was collected and shared internally by Google employees themselves, who voluntarily provided their salary, equity and bonus data for 2022.

The spreadsheet was then leaked to Insider , where data journalists crunched the numbers.

The spreadsheets reveal wages and bonuses for more than 12,000 Google employees in administrative positions, across the search engine giant’s offices in the United States.

Google does not appear to be adhering to the “equity” portion of its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policy, with clear trends in unequal pay by race and gender.

The leaks come despite repeated news in recent years about Google managers trying to ban “derogatory” terms, or the company’s plans to flag politically incorrect terms for users within search bars and Google Docs.

It turns out that in Google’s many offices around California’s San Francisco Bay Area, which has the third highest cost of living of any city in America, the average “minimum base salary” was just $39,962.

The statistics were collected from Google’s eight office locations in Silicon Valley and the surrounding suburbs.

The pay data includes employees from many roles within the tech giant, including software engineers, business analysts and sales representatives. As well as data on how employee compensation is broken down by gender, with evidence of the often stated disparity between male and female employees, according to stereotypes – with the exception of sales.

It appears that female employees in “enterprise direct sales” and sales strategies earn more than their male colleagues.

Commenting on the leaked spreadsheet, Google spokesperson Tamani Jayasinghe said: “We compensate Google employees based on what they do, not who they are.”

“We conduct a rigorous wage and pay equity analysis every year to ensure salaries, bonuses and stock awards are fair,” Jayasinghe added. “This spreadsheet contains outdated, self-reported data that is not verified and is not an accurate representation of compensation across our workforce.”

While the accuracy of the leaked spreadsheet and the overall fair treatment of all these subgroups among Google employees may be debatable, one thing that is certain is that Google employees rank among the highest paid employees in technology, with the average total compensation for the average Google employee in 2022 279,802 US dollars.

It turns out that the highest-paid employee in the data set works in human resources, and manages all the rest.

In 2022, Fiona Ciccone, Google’s chief human resources officer, was reported to receive a base salary of $1 million, according to Insider. 

Technology : MediaTek unveils the first processor developed with “3nm” technology!

MediaTek caused a stir in the world of technology and revealed the first processor for smart devices that it developed using “3nm” technology in cooperation with TSMC.

Regarding the topic, Cliff Howe, Vice President of Sales in Europe and Asia at TSMC, said: “MediaTek and TSMC’s cooperation in the field of developing processors and semiconductors has enabled the development of advanced technologies. We have worked closely with MediaTek over the years to bring many important innovations to the market. We are honored to continue our cooperation in the field of producing processors manufactured according to 3nm technology.”

According to available information, the new processors developed with 3nm technology will bring about a qualitative shift in the world of mobile phones and smart devices, as they will improve the performance level of the devices by approximately 18%, and will reduce energy consumption by 32% as well.

These processors are supposed to be used in smartphones, tablet computers, and many portable devices, and it will also be possible to benefit from them in smart cars and many electronic devices.
