Check the local policies before you start. They are not all the same.
I was in the China office, Beijing branch so things were somewhat different perhaps. As a consultant we didn't have amazing work life balance overall, however we did have quite a few working mothers who were able to stay on and continue with their work. Our workplace organized a lot of Women in Leadership activities and my boss was an amazing female leader, who provided great mentorship.
You get flex about an option like working from home but do not expect to move forward in your career at all. They will put you in a position and you never get out of it.
They have the policies that women need but sometimes you need to push for them to come to fruition for yourself.
It's important to communicate that you're flexible and can be available (within reason) when there's a crunch period or urgent deadline.
There area lot of women who work here, especially on my particular career team. This is most likely due to the type of work we all do. Women are in high-level positions and the glass ceiling is not something you typically have to deal with; however, I have observed an environment in which women are more than willing to stab others in the back to get to the top. Not everyone believes in helping other women succeed.
In EY Poland there is a lot of initiatives supporting women. But from my perspective they are run only because they are politically proper. I don't think they change the women situation here in EY Poland (lots of women at the junior level, the higher rank the lower diversity rate - just a fev female partners).
Many women in leadership roles but often seemed unhappy in their lives outside of work.
Masculine Culture - trying to add more women, but not quite there yet, particularly at higher levels. It's meritocratic and there are relatively equal opportunities for women, but it's easier for men to find mentors, particularly ones who are higher up in the company.
Your band (or level) is key to how you can expect to be treated. Too low - don't expect much. Being billable is crucial - be non-billable too long expect a form email to arrive giving you 3 weeks to find a position with a client or you are gone - out of a job. (You might be saved if your skills are unique.) Oh and don't expect any help from Wipro either if that happens - no severance. Senior management is dominated by men from India in every single country they are located. I never met a senior female executive (very, very few) who wasn't from India. Mid-management - yes there are women from other countries. I have no idea if pay is equal between men and women. I would tell any friend of mine to run in the opposite direction if they were considering working there. But maybe you would have better luck.
