No work life balance if you're in the field. Hours are not flexible. Hours are long and exhausting. You work weekends and holidays.
This is a U.S. subsidiary of a European company. Two of the four Director roles in the U.S. are filled by women. I think this is a great place for a woman to work who's starting her career and wants her work to be valued and seen. There is a small company/office feel day-to-day with the network and infrastructure of a global corporation guiding the strategy. With that comes the good and bad of each scenario. However, all of the global leadership roles are filled by men. We run into subtle discrimination against our gender and also because we are not European. Overall, I still like it.
Networking and who your senior-level advocates are is everything here...not necessarily about the work you do, but rather who you know and how much they will do for you. There is some (not-so-subtle) gender bias on the creative side I did notice at the highest levels, but generally women and men are treated equally. However, it is important to note that the majority of the leadership positions are staffed by men due to the good old boys network. This is why finding a male advocate who will actively support and push for you is key - this is a lot harder than it seems because most everyone is focused entirely on promoting their own careers vs. helping develop those below them.
