July 2017

Big company with chance for exposure to many functional areas, but limited women hires and even less advancement (especially outside the 'pink collar ghettos')

    Good mat/pat leave policy. However, advancement can be impacted by interrupted career path (unofficially).

    Maybe. Can be a good stepping stone in the industry. Best not to stay too long - opportunities tend to decline over time.

July 2017

Many managers will actively not help you with solving personality issues, many engineers are very unfriendly toward women.

There are few women in upper management positions, though the opportunities do exist.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    12 paid / 7 unpaid

    Fully paid maternity leave is possible, but you will have to supplement sick and vacation time to make up the difference in pay given by the state. It is possible to have 12 weeks of fully paid leave or more, if you have accrued enough time off. The company allows up to 6 months of leave.

  • Are Women and Men Treated Equally?

    Yes

  • Family Friendly Aspects

    Culture

  • Flexibility of the employer

    1 2 3 4 5

    Flexibility greatly depends on the head of your department or direct manager. Some are given the opportunity, while others are not, which creates resentment in the workplace. HR refuses to create a formal policy on the matter. In general, flexibility is generally frowned upon.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Yes

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

    1 2 3 4 5

    Flexibility is really case-by-case and management-dependent.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Lots of opportunity for learning and being involved in amazing projects. For a lot of people, it's best as a jumping-off point, or to come to with established positioning. Not ideal for those who stay a long time as there's a tendency for us to be passed over. The issues are not overt, they are more subtly endemic.

Take a job at this place if you have no other offers. Only stay long enough to find another job. The place is a dead-end.
