Women who are account executives have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.2, 54.3% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $50k-$80k.
While senior management is comprised of mostly men, there are a lot of women in lower-level management positions.
Great place to work in termsof work life balance. Respect for women in the work place is prevalent. Excellent benefits and culture.
The regional office I work in is very respectful of family commitments. I don't feel embarassed or guilty if I request to come in early, leave late or take a quick errand for something personal.
It's a great job to have - especially if you need some degree of flexibility. However, depending on your individual manager/management team, be prepared to justify some appointments.
If you work hard and can handle the fast pace you will succeed
Edelman is pretty fair on the front end in how women are treated, but I suspect unequal pay, especially as the ranks narrow towards senior leadership.
This company offers job sharing to people in sales roles if they are persistent and some have secured 4 day workweeks as part of their negotiation. They provided both job sharers full-time benefits and 60% vacation and sick time for a 3 day workweek until the 2008 recession and then changed their policy to not include benefits and a finite small number of sick/vacation days. The company does a good job promoting women into management positions. It is a smaller radio company and there was an extraordinary amount of turnover for the industry in management at the middle level and top level as well as weak moral and higher than usual employee turnover. I had on average 1 manager each year I worked there. The company seemed visionary at first but did little to encourage professional development and show employees that they cared about their well-being. There was above average employee turnover and poor moral and no real HR department to address issues. They were focused on duplicating a cookie cutter proposal and sales method with every move and proposal scrutinized by one to three managers resulting in a very inefficient, cumbersome way to do business that also showed employees how little they valued their talent and expertise.
Good employee networks like the Business Women's Network where you can find mentors and connect with female leaders
I work at Learfield over 2 years in a sales role. The company seems to take random strides to try to hire women or diverse candidates, but IMO does not do a good job of trying to retain them. Every sports property's culture is different, as is headquarters, so it's hard to get a clear 'big picture' of how women are treated across the board. Could depend a lot on your GM or VP (most of which are males). I personally felt pushed out when I became pregnant. One month after I told my boss that I was pregnant he told me that my role was being eliminated. I was offered a support role (demotion) with lower pay that required a move...I did not take it.
This is an extremely female-oriented environment - I remember being in meetings of 50+ people, with only a few men in the room. Middle management and below tends to be predominantly women, but upper management seemed to be mostly male. There are lots of special interest groups for women in leadership, women of color, etc.
