Director

January 1970

Each office has a bit of its own culture. The HQ in New York definitely has a tight knit group of men at the top the ultimately influence org structure, opportunities and culture. Very hard to move up once you get to a certain level in middle management. Especially if you are not in the Headquarters.

    I was able to work part-time for a while after my child was born. But that benefit is highly dependent on your boss.

    Maybe. Depends on what level you are hiring in to. Good at entry level but once you get Director it is hard to move up.

Be sure to advocate for yourself and find a manager/mentor/sponsor who will help you achieve your career development goals.

    Work life flexibility, not balance, is encouraged, but it depends on managers and teams in terms of what that actually looks like. There is still an underlying culture of questioning whether or not someone who regularly works remotely or has adjusted their hours to work earlier/later is actually working.

    PTO can be added to the end of official paid leave, at manager's discretion.

    Maybe. Different managers and teams have very different approaches when it comes to supporting and promoting high performing women.

The firm values face time and often gives examples of successful women, however these women are the types that either do not have children, or have full time care and sacrifice family face-time for work.

Work hard, speak up. Don't let change define you, use the change to make good things happen.

I have worked here for 5 years and have only ever seen 1 woman be promoted to Managing Director in my group. The (white) men are given leadership positions regardless of accomplishments. Worse yet is they are put in charge of women and do not sufficiently advocate for them during promotion / compensation processes. The kicker: I received the classic feedback of being "too aggressive" in the workplace.

Almost everyone at the top is a white male, and men who do no work are promoted before women who are doing all the work.
