I see many working mothers in my team, and they have flexibility on their working hours. People are understanding if there's any issues that arise. This is true for both men and women

I've been here a while and love my new job (which I've been in for 3 months now). Aside from the job, team, management etc - all which I'm happy with, what I most appreciate is the flexibility I have to manage my work life and outside life. Flexibility for personal time, mom time and social time. There has been a lot of change recently that I hope is for the better, I'm in a bit of wait and see mode to say for certain. Also - the benefits are amazing!

Promotions are based on a popularity contest, and with the removal of the formal review system recently this is more evident than ever. There is no structure or framework to fairly evaluate people's readiness for promotion, and as a woman that leaves us at a huge disadvantage.

I have been with the company for nearly a decade. I had children prior to joining, and I've found the family benefits and flexibility in my roles in order to support the needs of my family to be quite good. I've worked a flex schedule many times in order to ensure I didn't miss games, performances, etc.

It is extremely competitive with quarterly "Connects" where you share what you did with the value to the company and what you could have done differently. Politics at higher levels - there is an "old boys club" that exists and is very active.

I have worked for Microsoft for over 10 years. I enjoy my work, but what you read about Microsoft and their stack ranking system and how the company is run by HR is true. They mandate women have to be in interview loops above a certain level and this does not help the image of women or working towards diversity. Our CEO has had a few blunders in the press, and my personal sentiment is he is not people focused and the culture is still very cut throat at the expense of the business.

Having a good manager is key to being successful here, as is being very driven and motivated to sell yourself.
