Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women
I've worked here for 10 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles although we have recently made strides with more women in manager positions. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them and male managers don't actively seek out informal networking with women. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time. I think managers place a high emphasis on face-time and being in office at 7:30 AM and leaving at 6PM which as opposed to being results oriented and understanding that parents can and work remotely in the evenings after kids are in bed.
Lady Pepe Reporter
I've worked here for 4 years and I do see a few women advancing in their careers but they clearly work twice as hard as the men in their same positions. I believe there are guidelines in place for fair treatment of women, so I don't think it's an issue of company policy. But day in day out, I feel there's an assumption made by the men in the company (especially white and older ones) that the women are there to assist them. For example, I've been asked to transcribe interviews for male reporters less experienced than me, do meeting minutes that male reporters were never asked to do and be the one to have difficult conversations with women colleagues. These aren't terrible tasks per se, but it goes to show how sexism remains prevalent in the workforce.
Lady Tiger Event Operations
I could not have asked for a better experience at Bloomberg. I started as a temp in customer service, was converted to perm after a month, and was promoted after 3 months. A year later I was presented with two fantastic opportunities to join different teams within the company. I moved into event operations, taking on a role far beyond my skill set and comfort level, but my manager took a chance on me and let me shine. Bloomberg opened so many doors for me. I'm forever grateful for such a supportive environment that rewarded hard work. Also, the health and 401k benefits here are unparalleled. One of my colleagues who had 3 children was also permitted to have a flexible work arrangement where she had every other Friday off.
