Women have to be hard in this environment to survive. Because high level management roles being predominately male any woman seeking to further their career tend to over compensate.

Maternity leave is 6 weeks paid with an option to take an additional 6 weeks without pay.

It's a great stepping stone to better careers within company. Prepared me for tougher jobs by experiencing this tougher environment.
