In 1998, the founders of Google rented Susan’s garage for office space in the same month they incorporated the company. In her roles at Google, she handled the YouTube acquisition in 2006 and the purchase of DoubleClick the following year. 

"Whether it's salary or a promotion or a job, I think it's important for women to ask for what they think they deserve."

"As a manager it's noisy. If you have some people who are reminding you all the time about how they want that next job or promotion and you have other people who don't remind you, it's hard to keep those always at the same level. There's also a risk of being too focused on that. You have to do a great job too."
