Experiences vary by business unit and by the teams within them. There are various subcultures, that are better or worse depending on your role and team. Success is dependent on drive, persistence, and support from managers.

Officially the culture is very woman and diversity friendly. However, the "old boys club" exists in pockets, especially in the more traditionally male dominated industry's practices.

Overall, women are supported by the company's policies. However, there are some managers not familiar with the policies and foster a "bro culture". In my department, most of the leadership is men, which results in an imbalance of women contributing a level that can implement change.

Run away as fast as you can! the only goal of this company is to line the executives pockets. They screw everyone else over to do so

    Improve the morale by not laying people off constantly but never backfilling those positions and expecting others to take on way more work.

Be vocal about and advocate for your needs - it's there for those who ask, but you do have to ask (or make a plan that works for the team).

    Added my personal vacation time on to maternity leave; policy and practices vary widely by manager and by country. They also have an amazing program in the US for moms recently back to work to ship breast milk home whilst traveling.
