In addition, Google is providing more than $250 million in expanded parental benefits, including eight weeks of paid leave for birth mothers, increased payouts of baby bonding expenses and funding to help our full-time employees with the adoption costs.” “Most of Google’s employees are still white and Asian men, though the proportion of African-American and Hispanic workers at Google has increased significantly since 2014. The proportion of women at the company has remained flat for three years.”
Google will no longer pay for meals at its meetings to reduce costs to the company. Google says it will instead spend more money on meeting rooms where its employees can eat their food. The company is also implementing more changes that will reduce the amount of taxes paid by the company.

According to Google, there are no plans for mass layoffs for the following year, 2016 and 2017, according to a report from Business Insider. Instead, they will be “looking at hiring practices and considering various elements” to make the workload more manageable.

Google slows hiring and says the company needs to be more entrepreneurial.
Google has announced that they are slowing down its hiring process, and the company will implement this change over the next few months. The company says that it will slow down its hiring process so that it can focus on helping its employees become more entrepreneurial to help them grow with the company.
At Google, we want every Googler to thrive, and we think there’s a lot of evidence for this approach. Googlers who leave the company are more likely to burn out and take their skills elsewhere. Googlers who feel supported through training and mentoring are less likely to leave Google, even without a secure job offer from us.
So, we’re slowing down our hiring process at Google by 25% for the next year so we can focus on ensuring you have an environment that supports your well-being and growth as an entrepreneurial-minded Googler.

Google’s senior vice president of technical infrastructure, Urs Hölzle, said that the amount was not an indication of wrongdoing by the company.
In 2010, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said that he “haven’t done enough” to end open access to the Internet. In 2015, Google began lobbying against an increasing number of bills which would restrict or regulate the Internet in various ways. Google also opposed the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in 2012 and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) in 2011. The company has also been a prominent opponent of net neutrality and has lobbied against it across several states, from California to Washington.

Google employees protested outside of the company headquarters on November 1, 2016, and other protests followed in the following days. As a result, Google fired more than 20 employees due to these protests.
Google has been criticized for using its dominant position in search and communications to promote its own products, including Google Search, unfairly. Critics have highlighted Google’s compliance with Chinese censorship and its recognition of the government of Sudan in 2006 despite international sanctions against Sudan.
Google has also been criticized in the past for not including a “safe search” from pornographic material or content that contains hate speech.

Under the agreement, Google agreed to pay €306 million in back taxes related to the acquisition of Doubleclick. Google, however, stated at the time that it had “no plans to change our tax structure”.
Google has been criticized for the way it handles its diversity programs. A study published in 2016 by the U.S. Department of Labor concluded that Google had paid women 8% less than men for the same work and that white male employees received a median salary of $70,000 while women received a median salary of $60,000.

Google has been facing a lot of criticism in the past few years regarding its hiring process. This past year Google decided to slow down their hiring process to make sure that the new hires are capable of getting along with the rest of the team and have a higher chance of succeeding in their job.

Google has adopted corporate practices that maximize the revenues it can extract from its users while providing little or no compensation in return. By collecting, analyzing and making use of user data, Google can deliver targeted advertising to its users. As a result, Google can charge its advertisers a high premium while using the information it collects from its users to sell targeted advertising.
In addition, Google manipulates its search results to benefit itself and harm other businesses. By using its search results, Google can direct users to the website that it believes will provide it with the most revenue. As a result, Google is able to charge its advertisers a high premium for targeted advertising and, at the same time, give its content partners limited access to their audience.
The public has seen that Google is willing to violate its corporate culture by working with the military to build a search engine for drones. Critics of Google’s involvement in Project Maven say that the company is taking advantage of technologies for technological warfare. Google has dismissed these criticisms as “unfounded fearmongering.
