AVID is a great place for anyone looking to get into leadership at the start of their career. There is a lot of opportunity for growth and a lot of great teamwork. Everyone, including the leadership team, is willing to help you get to where you want to be.
It is a bit of a boys club. There is really no such thing as a work life balance. I don't know how a parent is able to balance their work life and their family. You have to be in before 7:45am and it is an unspoken rule that you cannot leave before 5:30pm without a legitimate excuse. It is very common to stay in the office until 6:30pm and you are encouraged to work through your lunch break. New employees are also required to attend a class once a week that starts at 7:00am. However, they are not allowed to leave an hour earlier. Many employees work on weekends as well. There are a lot of office politics and you are micromanaged. I would not recommend working there and the few women that I was friends with in the office all quit as well.
I see women at Amazon from front desk associates to Senior VPs (although there are far more men in high ranking roles than women over all, at least half of the senior leaders I support are women). Amazon is making leaps and bounds to increase diversity, especially in terms of adding female leaders to the tech work place. There are multiple teams dedicated to the recruitment of female employees and Amazon has set its goals high in terms of diverse hiring goals for the next few years. My work life balance has been wonderful so far (about 8 hours a day MAX) and I am constantly reading and partaking in in-depth discussions on the quality of life for women here in our Women @ Amazon affinity group and how to grow and improve. Amazon has even incorporated bias training into their interviewing practices so that every Hiring Manager and Interviewer considers subconscious biases they may have coming into the interview (an example would be women coming across as "abrasive" in an interview where as a man would come across as showing backbone) I would highly recommend the company to anyone, regardless of gender and feel women have the just as much opportunity for professional growth as men.
I wish I had known prior to getting pregnant what the maternity leave policy was - better yet, I wish I had known whether or not one even existed. They put one in place a few months before I had my daughter and they offered 6 weeks of 60% of my base salary and 6 weeks unpaid. Had I known that I would receive such little pay, I would have planned better and put more into savings. Otherwise, this company treats their women the same, if not better, than the men. We are paid equally but have a lot more flexibility with out schedules.
Run as far and fast away from this company as possible. Prepare to be sexually harassed and a constant commentary of your appearance. Similar environment to working at a frathouse or hooters. Actually Hooters may be more professional. Encouraged to drink with coworkers outside of working hours. A true nightmare for female employees.
