"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 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?"

"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"
