I have worked here for 2 years. I also have to drive 1.5 hours one way to get to work. The office environment is sad and depressing. They Make you work 9 hr a day to "maintain" a 95% utilization; weighing in your hours worked with vacation time to be taken and sick days.
I have worked here for 10 years and have noticed no difference in how men and women are treated. The hardest thing for me is just working with literally all men. They talk over me and are just loud so it's always been a challenge to be heard.
I've been with the company for 11 years. I feel like there is a path for advancement for some women (and men) but it seems as if there is some unspoken "list" of the chosen. I've been identified to be on a technical path but it doesn't appear to be leading anywhere. One thing I've noticed is that if you are good at your job and it would a job difficult to replace or train, managers are not interested in seeing you advance or move on. I don't feel like any time has been spent on my career development.
Job Satisfaction Level
I think I'm able to have a nice work / life balance; however, I don't feel like I have a career. I have a pretty good paying job that affords me a nice life; however, if I had higher career aspirations, I'm in the wrong position.
In Software Sales and in other business segments, the company is dedicated to a "high performance culture" and one must work hard and be willing to do a appropriate amount of self-promotion to be competitive for bonuses, awards and promotional opportunities. Newsflash for millenials - you will not become an executive in 2 to 5 years!
Job Satisfaction Level
8 paid / 16 unpaid
Good fit for the right opportunity, especially to build consulting experience or to sell in a high growth segment.
There are some who are tagged as "high potential" and usually those are women and/or diversity employees. It seems many of these are given opportunities because of this tagging, and, once tagged, there's no process to un-tag them, even if they don't live up to that "high potential". On the one hand, it's great for women and diversity candidates, on the other hand, we may be ignoring other parts of the population.
Company has a good % of women working here. Company purports focus on flex schedule and work/life balance. However what they don't say is 'balance' means 75% work, 25% life. Culture is not good, poor morale, no raises/bonuses beyond bare minimum. Broken performance review system that forces high performers into poor ratings to meet skew.
