"Talent Acquisition Leader is anything but demonstrative and totally non-inclusive. And recruiting should be the poster child for work/life balance policies. Yet, this is a department who's leadership is focused on the top of the organization, has an egregious energy and doesnt' seem to care about her employees."

"There seems to be a lot of flexibility the higher you get, but for mid-level it may exist, but it's very much frowned upon within the culture. As in, management will continuously voice how they don't like work from home arrangements, etc."

"Paid parental leave only kicks in if you've been with the company for 1 year (this is more than for tuition reimbursement). For men, they have 6 months after the birth to take the parental leave (so they can wait until they are eligible/with the company for a year), for women it must be immediately following STD."

"I've worked here for several years and there are a lot of women working here, but mostly in the lower/middle manager levels. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Maternity leave was recently upped from 2 weeks to 12 weeks, and many women take longer 'unpaid' leave. However, I think women suffer career setbacks for being out on leave. I think the culture is changing positively, and it helps that there are a few supportive women finally reaching higher ranks."
