"Recommend if you work in the corporate office. Do not recommend for manufacturing locations as policies are different. "

"Great support network for working mothers! Personally I’ve found there to be great flexibility - work from home, flex hours, etc. Strong culture of inclusion and continued focus in this area. "

"Be wary of "rotational" programs within various functions. Whether you are considered rotational or continuity will make or break your progress at this company. They are not very forthcoming as you come in as a candidate (recruiting)."

"They mean well but are not as progressive in their policies and benefits as they once were."
"Negotiate your salary coming in, and be relentless. Know the realistic career path for your field. Some career paths allow you to climb multiple levels in a couple years (sales), while others (ITQ) bolt you down for set terms and there's no hope of being promoted until you've put in your time, no matter the results you've produced. Also, joining as anything less than a level 12 is basically career suicide; you'll work twice as hard as some above you for half the pay and still only have an equal chance of winning the lottery to even be considered for the move to become a "career" employee (level 12)."
"Woman in the field are treated fairly and equally - but working in the field is completely different than corporate. You will work nights, weekends and be on call. In can create a bit of chaos for young moms!"
"Worked here over 10 years. Great company, but leadership is stuck in its ways, making for a challenging and frustrating work environment at times."
"The company is very family friendly. Benefits are GREAT, and there is a lot of emphasis on balance. No questions were ever asked if I needed to leave for my kids."
"My experience is in the marketing function at GMI - I have witnessed women at all levels of the function in leadership, manager, and support roles. For this reason, I am always surprised GMI does not offer better maternity leave benefits. I attribute this to the fact that there is a daycare onsite, so the aim is to provide resources to get women back to work sooner."
