Process Excellence Leader

Operations

To be ready to see very few women in technical or upper managerial positions. Of my group, there are 5 managers and 1 is female...and she is the manager of training, not of a technical area. There is a lot of policy and documentation around equality and goals for equality but anytime you look at management it must not really be happening...unless the position is a soft one such as HR or Training or Marketing. This is the same with other minorities...minorities are rarely seen in upper management. Of the 5 managers in my group, 1 is a minority (and it is not the female). It can be demoralizing to see that strides are not really happening when you look at the executive level and see minimal females...minimal minorities.

Analyze the manager's behavior very well during the interview. Negotiate a fair salary, as both men and women are over-worked and underpaid here with abysmal or nonexistent raises during the downturn. Ensure your work has high visibility, as many other employees are keen to steal the credit for your work. Do a lot of self-promotion, and you will win.

I've worked here for 7 years and in several different sub-businesses. Generally, the industrial businesses have way fewer women than businesses like healthcare or capital. Also, women are typically in HR or communications roles in those businesses. I have been in countless meetings with 10 or more people (sales, engineering, IT) and I was the only female. There is a strong Women's Network that puts on programs. There have been recent changes & promotions at the very top level of the company and there are a couple of women who are now CEOs of sub-businesses. Perhaps that will make some positive impact.
