There are women scattered throughout the company's hierarchy, but make no mistake: decisions, both editorial and business, are made by men. Men are on the cover of almost every edition of Forbes magazine; that patriarchal attitude permeates the culture.

Good maternal leave policy (not sure about paternal leave, but doubt it is very strong). Many women in leadership positions and seems that women are treated equally.

There are a lot of smart, capable women working here, and there are many opportunities to shape your career here. But after a certain number of years, it does feel like you hit a wall in development. It definitely can still feel like a boys club. Many of our top executives are men and so find other men to promote, praise, and generally provide opportunities to grow. And try having a conversation with one of those men without sounding like you're imagining a problem.

It can still feel like an old boys club at this company--even though we have plenty of women in leadership roles. And it's never overt discrimination, but more subtle things. For example, the men in power naturally mentor those who they identify with--typically another man--and provide opportunities for them to succeed/be promoted.
