Watch your back and pay close attention to the nuances behind what people say ("be a team player, not a critic" is not a good motto)

    I think that this company caters to younger people. It's great that they have generous parental leave policies, but that doesn't help an older worker who is more likely constrained by caregiver duties.

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Different groups, different roles can have different experiences so I wouldn't want my experience to stop them from getting a job with a good fit. Make sure your manager is a person you TRUST.

    Maybe. It really depends on who your manager will be - if you have a manager who will mentor you and help you move up the ranks, then you will be successful.

    most employees are afraid to request flexible hours even tho most have the option. not want to appear not doing their part. only employees who have their boundaries due to experience are comfortable with flexible hours and work from home schedule.

Men are promoted based on potential. Women have to prove themselves (with ever-moving goal posts) for the same positions.

Seek out a senior person to help guide your career development other than your boss. Managers change often and it is important to have multiple allies.

Microsoft is good at supporting Women, depending on the org you are in. Not all are supportive of maternity leaves or medical leaves, but the good orgs are investing in women. BAPI, or now they call it BAG, is one of those orgs.
