I had a boss forbid me from telling a client I was pregnant for fear of them not extending me on a contract. I was nearly 20 weeks pregnant at the time. What about my safety if something happened? He was a huge jerk, and all I wanted to do was to move to a new boss. I tried to talk to him about how much this mandate upset me and was none of his business, and he just hurled insults. I had to report him to HR because his rules were illegal, and nothing happened to him. What a joke. I left soon after. Even during my short-term disability, the company pestered me for documentation and documentation to justify my time away from the job. There are too many other great companies out there--please pass on this one.
Life outside the office is not valued. Still very much a boys network on the beverages side of business. Company is trying to change their culture but it is very slow and not coming from executive levels where women are sparse.
Great discounted Bright Horizons childcare center. Like any large companies, flexibility and work life balance is a directly related to your Manager. I was always fortunate to have really great managers. A lot of opportunities to work on different things and Staples is always best in class with most of what they do Marketing related. They are stingy with pay raised for promotions as well as lateral moves.
I've been with Cisco for 12 years. Lots of women in individual contributor roles and senior leadership. The company has a women't network for it's employees and customers. I like this because you are exposed to people outside the company as well for networking. I've never taken maternity leave, no opinion on that, but there's lots of flexibility and working from home is encouraged so that helps working moms out a lot. I love it here.
