"Culture of hierarchy and meritocracy privileges white men. While there are a few isolated women in leadership positions, there’s no emphasis on retaining and developing women. "

"The culture claims to be a "meritocracy" but rewards a narrow and specific means of engagement (largely arguing in front of a large audience) that men tend to be much more comfortable engaging in. There are a few women in high profile leadership positions but lower level administrative roles are almost entirely held by women and higher profile management roles held almost entirely by men. Additionally there's a hard partying culture in some departments that encourages poor behavior by men in particular (and it takes many strikes, some egregious. before this behavior is fully addressed)."

"Poor maternity leave policy, also don't disclose your previous salary--they low ball their initial salary offers"

"Equally qualified male and female candidates are sorted into different tracks from the interview stage. Women are pushed into administrative roles, and sold on the "growth potential" only to find that there is no growth track (or a very small chance of it). Males with similar or less experience are tracked immediately into MA programs. You are not allowed to discuss compensation, and there is no set compensation guide available, so you have no way of determining if you are being compensated fairly. Asking co-workers what they make is a fire-able offense. Maternity leave policy actually got worse in the past few years, and there is no flexibility or work life balance. You cannot work from home ever, so if your child is sick, you need to find a babysitter or take one of your limited sick/ vacation days. "
