"It's an old boys club. Women are in support roles, mostly. It is hard to be promoted, and though the performance evaluations are constant, they are completely subjective. Unless you have a good advocate, you won't get anywhere. There is a lot of stigma associated with taking time off for any reason, and kids are no exception. Maternity leave policy is minimal -- 6w paid, 6w unpaid, past these 12 weeks (mandated by FMLA), unpaid time off is at your manager's discretion. There is little obvious chauvinism --- sensitivity training worked. But the women are definitely second class citizens. For both women and men -- talent development is only for the select few and the HR is there to protect and support upper management."

"Overall its a great company. I get paid well and have good benefits. The only bad thing is how political it is. To move up or to be recognized is dependent on who you know. A new person really needs to make an impact to get noticed and the impact can't be something the leadership team dislikes."

"Touted s a great place for working moms but flexibility varies greatly by department. It comes down to your manager or department. Raises seem to be the same across the board, now matter how hard you work. This year forced distributions for reviews/ bonuses took effect, making it a nightmare to duke out and put a certain percentage of people in the "not achieving expectations" category. Some belonged there while others had poor managers that wouldn't advocate for them. I am not saying this to be bitter as I ended up on the better end but I saw what it did to morale and we have lost a lot of good workers while retaining not so great managers."
