Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)

I'd say there are a lot of women in engineering compared to many companies although there are not many women in senior positions without also taking on management roles.

    Maybe. Why is question #3 yes/no? I do see gender inequality - but I feel like we're making progress and I feel like with current D&I initiatives there is great hope. And even so, I think AppNexus is ages ahead of many other companies with regard to equality. If you want to know specifics, I still feel that men are judged based on potential whereas women are judged based on proving themselves repeatedly.

I'd mention that although the D&I efforts sometimes seem to fall short sometimes or its unclear what work is being done, it does seem like AppNexus cares about it and does want to be a more inclusive place. I might complain sometimes about the authenticity behind these diversity initiatives and or have critiques but I do realize that it might be worse at other companies.

    I would say its not JUST promoting more women into leadership positions but anyone in a marginalized community. Its not enough to just promote either but to make it transparent as to how someone got into a role that they did.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It really depends on where that person is in their career. If they are just starting or entering tech, this is a great place to build whatever skills you are interested and is a great foundation for building technical skills. Otherwise, I think a lot of AppNexus is getting caught in bureaucracy. There is also always a mentality of having to prove yourself before being trusted, which I think is fine but think about how much harder that is for a person in a marginalized community since they have to prove themselves plus overcome any unconscious biases.

It's not the best, it's not the worst. We continue to make progress, and it's a much better time to be a woman at AppNexus than it was several years ago. The changes have been driven by the women at the company and the women (or woman) in top leadership position(s). If leadership were to change, I'm afraid the efforts and emphasis on women and work/life harmony would fade. There is a lot of talk around allyship, but in my experience the men at the company do not come to the defense of women when they witness bias, discrimination, or harassment. I think that is not so much a reflection on AppNexus, as it is a reflection on our society.

    Flexibility varies widely depending on your department and are at the discretion of your direct manager.

    I'm so thankful for the generous maternity leave: 12 weeks plus back any days the company was closed or on holiday. Would love to see AppNexus add even more time to the maternity leave plan.
