"Making strides towards promoting more women into leadership roles, but still has a way to go. Need to hire more women (experienced and college grads) into the pipeline so that there would be more women to promote into leadership roles. Leave policies are great regarding family-related leaves (maternity, family illness, etc). Flexibility (i.e. telework, flex days/hours) is allowed in certain functions/businesses/sites. Remote opportunities are very limited and rare."

"If you are in operations you will run into quite a few men who will belittle you in some way. A lot of them are older and see nothing wrong with calling you little pet names or not believing what you say. However a lot of other people take you seriously. A very mixed bag. Also probably has something to do with being in the south. Management can have the same attitude though which can get discouraging."

"I've worked here for over 1 year. They claim that there are many women in leadership, but most are in middle-management and I've heard a lot of talk about them behind their back from their direct reports, other women leaders, other men leaders, etc. It's quite discouraging. You have to be a little crass and be "one of the boys" to fit in, especially in some departments. It's very obvious that you are treated differently. It takes a while to earn the respect of the operators and of other engineers when you are a new graduate and a young women here. Some still do not ask me for technical advice even though I own the process and have made good engineering recommendations, etc. They ask the other male engineers in the department, who then defer to me."

"This company has good benefits (health insurance, paid maternity leave). They even lend out breast pumps. However, there can be a "good old boys" culture in the plants. Corporate bureaucracy and talking heads are rampant."
