"Most women in leadership try to lead as men, so that they feel they have more power and can achieve more. Competition between peers is savage. Most of the time you will be frustrated by the fact that no matter how great you work and your annual evaluations are, you won't move in the direction you want or you think you deserve. You are a piece of chess. Basically they say much, don't do as much as they say."

"The higher you are in the R&D organization, the better. Women at the manufacturing sites don't have the same opportunities. "

"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."

"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."
"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."
"network is the best thing you can do. Most people land promotions and other positions on who they know at the company."
"Know the internal rules to get ahead: Networking and relationships are key."
"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."
"Company says all the right things but doesn't necessarily walk the talk."
"Learn the politics quickly,"
"Women..you get what you negotiate, not really what you are worth."
"The company attempts to promote gender equality but it doesn't promote "age" equality. Promotions and projects are given to the millennials and the Baby Boomers are overlooked and not recognized fir their tenure and experience."
