"They try, they really do. But at the end of the day there are just too many men with partners at home who take care of the home and the family for them to understand what it's like to try to balance home and family. Several of the higher ups even have families (some of them have large families) but they still work and don't take family time or vacations. "
Overall Job Satisfaction:
Are women & men treated equally?
Does the CEO support gender diversity?
One thing Coffman Engineers can improve?
"Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)"
Level of Flexibility
"There's a lot of talk of flexibility but the reality is that most of the employees are men with partners at home who take care of everything for them. So even if you come in early to put in 12-15 hours before 4pm to be at pick up on time, you still get the evil eye for leaving "early". When you use your vacation, you get snide comments covered up by jokes. Employees stand around comparing comp time hours - most of them have triple digits and end up having to cash out vs. taking the hours. Those employees are praised. Employees with less than triple digits are mocked. "
Did you take Maternity leave?
Would you recommend Coffman Engineers to other women?
"if you don't have a family yet - are just building your career and don't have a family to support then it's a fun company with great culture. But once you need time to care for a family, finding balance becomes a daunting and difficult task."
