Submission + - Why's Google Having Mom of 3 Attend 1 AM Meetings?

theodp writes: Google exec Marissa "I-Don't-Really-Believe-In-Burnout" Mayer sensed that something was wrong with Katie, a soccer mom of three. Could it be that Katie resented that her Google job required her to attend nightly 1 a.m. video conference calls with her Google Finance team in Bangalore? Perish the thought, says Mayer, whose probing revealed it was having to also attend late-in-the-day meetings that made her miss her kids' soccer games and dance recitals that really frosted Katie's ass. 'So, we say you're never going to miss another soccer game or be late for a recital,' Mayer assured Katie (video). Problem solved! So, how is it that Google topped FORTUNE's Best Companies to Work For list, but didn't manage to land a spot on Working Mother's 100 Best Companies list?
