I think that there is a huge disconnect between the "corporate culture" --what could be--and the "company culture" -- what I experience on a daily basis. I have always been in the field. The company culture is determined in the front seat of your car, one-on-one with your manager. I have heard stories of OUTRAGEOUS thinks that my current sales manager has said to women. However...nothing is in writing, nothing can be documented. It's "he said/she said". The women have gotten nice severance packages...but he's still here. In sales, the culture is set by your sales manager. This company looks great at the top!!! I'm really encouraged by everything I hear from Senior Leadership! I just wish I worked for that company on a daily basis....

It's an old boys club. Women are in support roles, mostly. It is hard to be promoted, and though the performance evaluations are constant, they are completely subjective. Unless you have a good advocate, you won't get anywhere. There is a lot of stigma associated with taking time off for any reason, and kids are no exception. Maternity leave policy is minimal -- 6w paid, 6w unpaid, past these 12 weeks (mandated by FMLA), unpaid time off is at your manager's discretion. There is little obvious chauvinism --- sensitivity training worked. But the women are definitely second class citizens. For both women and men -- talent development is only for the select few and the HR is there to protect and support upper management.

I have worked here for 17 years. I have an 11yo and 8yo. A large company like this did afford me flexibility with raising children. I could be flexible with my working hours and I was lucky enough to work for many managers who were open to working from home when there were sick kids or doctors appt etc. The advice I would get my self 17 year ago is to be more proactive with my career progression. I spent too many years waiting for my managers to promote me or hand me the next opportunity. I have learned now, that I need to find the next opportunities for myself by networking and paying attention to the areas of growth.
