finance manager Job Reviews
Women who are finance managers have an overall job satisfaction level of 4, 44.4% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $80k-$100k.
Family friendly overall but depending on your manager can be challenging to progress.
Both men and women are treated equally for the most part. You will still get those instances of having an idea and a man not listening at all or later making it seem as if it was their idea.
I've worked here for almost 8 years and had 2 maternity leaves. In addition to maternity leave (mine was a combination of SD, baby bonding time, PFML and vacation time), NBCU provides a workplace lactation program that includes free breastfeeding classes, access to free phone support from an IBLC certified lactation consultant, and a free hospital grade breast pump. Additionally there is a maternity management program that is available through our insurance that provided ongoing support and check-ins throughout my pregnancies from a designated nurse. Following my return to the workplace, I had access to a designated lactation room (not just an office or closet). NBCU clearly seeks to support and accommodate nursing mothers in the workplace.
I have worked here for 4 years, and had much success with 2 promotions in the first 2.5 years. Highly visible work and aggressive networking will get you promotions. Forced curves exist for the performance evaluations, which are very subjective and 'level set' when all the managers and directors in the division get in the room to talk about each person individually. The company is working to improve the goal setting/performance/feedback loop but it is broken. The United culture operates in a culture where everything is high urgency and high importance. If you are a fire fighter, you will easily get promoted. If you like to plan and resolve issues before they occur, you will be overlooked. There is a lot of consensus building and decisions take a long time to get made. I do feel that managers respect having time outside of work, or time to work from home if needed. Women are valued but if they were treated fairly (with regards to promotions), I think we would see more in management positions.
I believe you should research pay ranges for your position and aim high when you initially get hired. Having difficult time now after 6+years to get where I should be in the market.
It's a very tough company to work for, but it can be rewarding and the benefits are good.
It really depends on your department and your boss. I've moved a couple times, and am happy now, but it takes a while to find the right fit.
The perspective of a female is valued if you are vocal. This is still a place where people let the work speak for itself, very results oriented, though political at times. Do good work and you will be rewarded. The culture is very family oriented for those wanting children but the hours are hard if you are committed. However, I think this is true of any company.
I worked at American Express for 3 years. I don't have any children, but it always seemed that 50% of the women at any given time were pregnant. That must mean that they liked working at American Express well enough from a work life balance standpoint to choose to have kids.
