OPEN

January 1970

I've worked here for 9 months after working at a consulting firm previously. There are SO many women here, it is almost overwhelming. My team is currently 80% women, and that is not uncommon. From what I hear, the parental leave policy is strong, and there is a big focus on work / life balance. However, the healthcare plans are truly sub-par and the environment can be very political-- more about who you know than about the quality of the work you do.

My department has many women in upper management but my field is predominately female. I'm not sure if the it's the same for other departments.

It is a great company, and one you can grow at. However, with the changing leadership and times, the roatating roles that were advertised are much harder to secure, though still prevalent. The culture is very supportive of bringing your "whole self" to work, but it is still hard to manage it all since it is still a large organization with forced curves, etc.

I have worked here for 15 years and most of my managers have been men. Management is male dominated and mostly not from US.

Mostly male dominated. Trying to pull women up the leadership ladder though. Work from home supported in some roles - but mostly not encouraged.
