Fair for the most part, in my line of work still a good old boys club though
You must really advocate for yourself- and ensure you know job levels of those around you. I spent two years doing the same work scope as several peers and was an MG level lower. I did not know it until everyone at a certain level and above was invited to a meeting and I was not. I spent many months trying to repair, along with verbals it was being addressed and it never happened. He well aware and company split took priority
I believe women are supported and many are in senior management, however the executive team - president, CEO, etc is male and not always focused on bias, so a male boss with a sensitivity chip missing may slip through now and then, but for the most part it's a good place for women.
With a few of the most senior positions in the company filled by women at the top, it's hard for anyone to suggest that women's careers here are not nurtured. The support network is great. Yes, it's a tech industry and there are a lot of men in tech. But the company walks the talk on flexibility and always has.I worked part-time for 13 years raising my kids, and it didn't hurt my career. Women are not judged harshly for also taking care of responsibilities outside the office.
Work Life balance is attainable here. Upper management has little diversity from white and male.
extremely difficult to juggle work life balance.
The FT is generally a friendly and family-friendly place, for both men and women. There are women in leadership positions but it does feel slightly antiquated as an institution, including having white males in their 40s and 50s running the place.
There is not a great work life balance even though they said it is.
The company truly has a very big heart but doesn't always live up to its ambitions. Its social purpose is inspiring. There are amazing and diverse female leaders at the VP level. Would love to see true balance at the executive committee level. Benefits and policies are old-school - e.g., HR is proud because now we can take up to 2 weeks of maternity leave before a birth. The company is trying to compete with digital and fintech players, and would like to see it take a page from Netflix and others so as not to fall behind in the talent war. When it comes to women, "packaging" matters more than substance, and women seem judged in ways that men are not. While there's a lot of good here, the company should do more to deliver on its promise.
There is a focus on the advancement of women. The company generally offers flexibility, but it can be at a manager's discretion and thus you won't necessarily be able to take additional unpaid maternity leave or work from home.
