Quickly growing tech company HashiCorp has a mission: “harnessing the power of not one or some of us, but the strength of all of us.” They know this happens by making each and every employee feel valued, and women at the company are reaping the benefits.
"HashiCorp puts their money where their mouth is when it comes to building an inclusive organization,” one anonymous reviewer wrote. "You see this in daily interactions and in tenured or new employees.”
With 75 percent of HashiCorp employees working remote, inclusive networking opportunities, and paid parental leave, its easy to understand why women are so impressed with the company’s environment.
The popularity of Wealthfront's personal finance software is growing rapidly, and so is their team (thanks, in part, to a recent funding round that pulled in $75 million). Women who work there say it's a "very accommodating" employer if you have (or want) a family, complete with flexible hours, generous paid parental leave, and a Grade A pumping room.
AppNexus is hiring like crazy, and it's worth your while to check out their openings. Employees say the company "is filled with people who are wildly smart, collaborative and believe in hard work. Many companies have a set of values, but AppNexus truly lives and breathes those values - learning and teaching, improving the bigger system, empowering customers and overall making great things happen."
This company is hiring a ton right now, and if you join their team, you'll have the chance to work within what employees call a "a good company that makes their employee satisfaction a priority. The management is flexible and supportive."
Snap Inc. has its sights set on reinventing the way we see (and use) cameras, and women who work there seriously love being a part of that mission. When asked whether they would recommend Snap to other women, one FGB'er who recently returned from maternity leave gave a resounding, all-caps "YES." Her reasoning? "My managers and HR have been incredibly supportive and helpful with everything, which has made my time as a new mom so special. I am incredibly grateful to work at a company that values family so much."
Women love working at Stride Consulting — NYC’s go-to Agile software development company — because they know their work will be properly compensated. Stride recently won a Stevie award for Equal Pay, and all employees are allowed to request a raise 365 days a year. To make this process easier, Stride has an internal sponsorship program where each Strider is paired with a work buddy and a work sponsor to advocate for their career development. However, your compensation doesn’t stop at your salary. Striders are also provided flexible working options, floating vacation days, competitive health and dental benefits, and 401(k) matching that vests immediately.
Ultimate Software is a top-rated company for women — and for good reason. As one employee puts it, "The company is amazing and the culture is insane. I feel the most valued I've ever felt in my career. I feel trusted and appreciated!"
Mercer Advisors involves the best of both worlds. When it comes time to be off the clock, FGB'ers say the wealth management firm is "supportive of your life outside of work."

They're hiring a bunch right now, too, for roles ranging from financial advisors to client services all across the country!
Working at Columbia University Information Technology (CUIT), you support mission critical technology for over 40,000 faculty, staff, and students.

As Laura Bishop, the company's CFO, put it: "The passion and dedication USAA employees have toward our mission amazes me!"
