This company is moving in the righjt direction and has the right policies in place (UK). It is also possible to progress rapidly, providing your line management is supportive, and you are able to 'break out' from the line. First-level line management is still heavily dominated by men, and I have received comments like 'you don't need to worry - you will do ok because you are a woman' and 'we want to set you up for success - another woman had difficulty being a line manager in this region so this probably isn't the right place for you to become a line manager'' - this is a symptom of the industry in general. There is still work to do - but the company are aware of the issues they have and are putting a lot of effort into addressing them.

The leave is great however they fired me when I told my boss I was pregnant. Prior to this I was given the top rating for 2 consecutive years and was on the top talent list.

I was given 6 weeks of paid (full time) maternity leave, and any time after that (dipping into long-term disability) was paid at half salary.

The company likes to talk the diversity talk and has a "women's initiative" to level out the executive women roles with men, but I don't see a lot of action. Maybe in the future.. who knows?

Policies are dependent upon your immediate supervisor and can change as you transfer positions.

There is equal opportunity for women who are operationally minded; because that is the ethos of the organisation. The hierarchy is very strong, and it might be difficult to progress to the level of your competence if you haven't been in the organization for your entire career. Even more challenging if you join from another industry.

If you are very operationally minded, and just want to get on with the work, you might enjoy it. If you are an expansive thinker or innovator, I would steer clear

Leave policies differ greatly depending on your country of residence. In the U.S., it is quite difficult to get a straight-forward answer of all of the benefits available to you. They offer far more generous leave time than FMLA, but the issue is how long can you go without pay as much of the generous time off is without pay.

I've worked here for almost 15 years, the jobs are great, and we have on-site daycare, which is really helpful, we also get every other Friday off, and management is overall ok with flexible time. However, it goes both ways, and I'm also expected to take calls at 6 or 7 am, or answer emails in the weekends. We have equal rights policies, but in reality vast majority of management is male and WASP.

I would suggest that you try to get to know your boss and bosses boss. Also actively seek opportunists to find mentors and friends in other parts of the organization so that you can find other opportunists if you need them. Never worth going to HR about issues as they are sticky working for the company and have no interest in helping you the employee.
