Sales

Worked here for over 15 years in different roles and different areas of the country. Women working in HQ have access to many more options than those in field sales, for example: onsite childcare options. Women are treated fairly, but senior leadership is male-dominated, so much so, that the company has recently made a public declaration to diversify senior leadership, with a target of developing women and minorities for leadership positions.

Gender politics coming into play varies by department and management, and is difficult to prove. I'd be more worried about overall office politics than any kind of discrimination based on gender. From what I understand, maternity leave is a joke. You can get paid for some of it if you have Aflac and don't sign up for it when you're already pregnant (it cannot be a 'pre-existing condition').

I've worked here for 6 years and have met a lot of great people. Sometimes the expectations have been very demanding but overall it is fair. It is a complex organization so knowing the right people and building relationships is very beneficial. It can be difficult to move around and it seems like in this day and age you have to know some one to get where you want to go.
