    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.

    Touted s a great place for working moms but flexibility varies greatly by department. It comes down to your manager or department. Raises seem to be the same across the board, now matter how hard you work. This year forced distributions for reviews/ bonuses took effect, making it a nightmare to duke out and put a certain percentage of people in the "not achieving expectations" category. Some belonged there while others had poor managers that wouldn't advocate for them. I am not saying this to be bitter as I ended up on the better end but I saw what it did to morale and we have lost a lot of good workers while retaining not so great managers.
