Manager

January 1970

A lot of women work here, however most senior leader roles held by men. This is starting to change (on purpose) which is creating negative feelings with some men who feel some women are getting promoted only because they are women. Great work/life balance that both men and women take advantage of. No maternity leave; it is Short Term Disability coinciding with FMLA and 6 weeks are paid. You can extend your leave with unpaid FMLA and any vacation days.

Flexibility is good here but all other benefits like subsidized childcare and maternity leave are nonexistent. Women do advance but only so far it seems. In my dept all of the senior level directors are men.

Slow pace, lots of red tape. The company seems to be very flexible with a good work/life balance but the politics are horrible. I have never heard of anyone getting fire therefore incompetence is compounding. Promotions are based on politics. Pay and benefits are excellent though.

Increase in diverse hires. Accessibility to promotion for driven employees--regardless of gender. Generous maternity and paternity leave. Flexible schedule, generous perks and pay (bonus structure).

Madam Transformation

January 1970

I have worked here for 17 years. I have an 11yo and 8yo. A large company like this did afford me flexibility with raising children. I could be flexible with my working hours and I was lucky enough to work for many managers who were open to working from home when there were sick kids or doctors appt etc. The advice I would get my self 17 year ago is to be more proactive with my career progression. I spent too many years waiting for my managers to promote me or hand me the next opportunity. I have learned now, that I need to find the next opportunities for myself by networking and paying attention to the areas of growth.

Our CEO is a courageous and visionary leader. Seems he's headed the company in the right direction for the long haul, which is not only healthy for the company but because it's being done for healthy reasons, great for women too. The challenge is middle mgmt - still some who manage as their fiefdoms. Probably the current restructuring will shake that up further. It remains to be seen where things will land. Posted Mar 2015.

They are very supportive of women in the company, but a lot of the women have been there a very long time and do not take well or play well with new comers who are not hand picked by them.
