Flexible hours can be tough for women working on projects that require being in a secure environment.

Engineering Manager

Over the past few years, I've seen more and more women move up into section lead and other leadership roles. I would say that 30% of my peers as a manager are women. Yes, there is an imbalance of women in the workplace AND in leadership roles, but that's because engineering is a male-dominated industry!

    I can't imagine an employer being more flexible with work hours. We have bi-weekly pay periods, which means we can flex our 80 hours of work over two weeks. We have every other Friday completely off from work. Most managers will flat out tell you that personal commitments hold equal, if not more, priority than your job. If there's a family emergency, go! If you need to come in a bit late to drop your kids off, or leave early to pick them up, do it, as long as you can make up the hours elsewhere.

    It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to request and be approved for part time or flexible time. I know a number of people who are one or have been on flex or part time schedules.

You work for your boss...to make him/her look good and take all the credit. If you're okay being behind the scenes and not appreciated by upper management, then this is a good place for you.

This employer is not flexible nor are they focused on employee needs or seem to care about the actual employee.

Don't expect work life balance, also the maternity leave here is the bare minimum.

I work in one particular site in the UK which is historically very male orientated, but think this is better at other sites.

BAE has worked hard over the last 5 years to improve the environment for women, and has made progress. However, it is still a place where women are in the minority, and where unconscious, and sometime conscious, bias rules. Participants at the unconscious bias training mandated for managers that I attended very explicitly stated that they didn't believe in the concept, and thought that it was simply a way to encourage quotas. In coaching sessions, women are encouraged to tolerate "top gun" behavior by a small number colleagues - because those are the "high energy" people that have management's ear. On the flip side, most colleagues are smart, and friendly once you get to know them.

As with most organizations, advancement beyond middle management ranks is more difficult here for women than for men. While there is strong emphasis on ethical conduct, there is an almost astounding lack of awareness about how skewed the assessment of potential and performance is toward men. The company's flexible work arrangements are very good but still in many pockets one is viewed as uncommitted if actually leveraging them, and there are the usual concerns about impact on advancement opportunity. Maternity leave appears to be well-accommodated but re-entry is not always the easiest. Benefits overall are good, colleagues well-meaning and good people, and I've been impressed with everyone's dedication to whatever part they play in the company's mission. Women in leadership roles...there are a few, and the company seems committed to improving their demographics.
