Its not so much the issue with the fact that its a male-dominated in management, but the policy of the downtime for both their problem and at home issues as I work from home. I can understand 1/2 pay for home downtime but if its an issue with their applications that we are to use and we have to stay online during those times we should get full pay not half pay.

If you don't want to move up fast then its ok for a woman to work here.
The benefits are great, and the policies are family friends, but in tech fields there are not a lot of women and so the culture in each department depends heavily on the men that work there and the leadership. The policies from the top down are very supportive of women, but if you're considering apple, interview with your team carefully.
I've mostly interacted with highly professional, extremely smart individuals at this company, and I've never experienced overt sexism. That said, like most tech companies it has a pretty high male to female ratio, so it's easy to feel outnumbered. The senior leadership seems committed to recruiting more women though. We also had two women present at WWDC this year, which I believe is a first. So that's a step in the right direction. I had no issues with my maternity leave. My team was supportive when I left and when I returned. There are a lot of people with kids here, so everyone is very understanding about needing time off for doctors visits, school functions, etc.
