good mobility for technology focused roles in engineering; less growth for other divisions like marketing, UX, content development due to these being minority functions and little investment from HR and leadership to develop these specialties
There are lots of opportunities for flexible work, everyone respects you. I've never had an occasion where I feel I've been treated differently or worse because I'm a woman. I'm a mom and I feel that it would be very different for me to try to have the impact I have at work right now and be a happy mom in another company.
Excellent maternity leave benefits, women's career development programs and flexibility options. However, not all managers are on board with flexible work options (part time) and it can be a real career setback if your manager does not truly support it.
I really do feel like they strive to do the right thing. Like any tech company, they have a ways to go, but they're far above the norm. Particularly in the smaller offices, women are valued and encouraged.
I haven't had a child of my own yet, but am thinking about having my first in the next 2 years. The reason I'm staying at this company is I see many women here with 1-4 kids who are doing a great job of balancing work and family. The culture here for the most part allows employees -- men and women alike -- to have that work-life balance. Seeing other women here succeed at this makes me feel like it's a feasible goal for other women who aren't there yet.
