Work schedule is flexible, and family time is valued. Women in leadership is rising more and more every year.

Although I know the pay on some of the higher positions is still unequal, everything else is very fair for both men and women (in my experience).

GM has great pay, great benefits, and generous holidays, but still there are shockingly few women at or above director level (at least in IT) and ZERO minority women that I have come across at that level for a company where the CEO is a butt-kicking woman.

This job is physically very demanding. On top of being injured many times, I was subjected to multiple cases of sexual harassment. This went on for 28 years in varying degrees. I was harassed by coworkers, and members of management. I takes several years to learn how to avoid this, and how to respond to this behavior.

Madam Y

January 1970

I've worked at various departments for 7+ years. Some groups are male dominated and very inexperienced in issues such as maternity leave simply from lack of encountering it. Others are very diverse with family friendly policies. I think you have to take control of your route through the company to take you to the groups that are of most advantage to you at your stage in life, and if you find yourself unable to do so (ex. request for dept. transfer is blocked by manager) then it's time to sharpen the resume for interviewing elsewhere. Don't get stranded. It's the sort of place where you can blink and have spent more than 5 years in a department.

    Maybe. Depends on the department, some are better than others. If you are in the "others", you need to leave or try to transfer ASAP

Ask for what you want. If you are a strong performer in a progressive group, they will bend over backward to keep you with long maternity leaves and flex time when you return but you are the one who has to present a win-win solution.
