Nice people and good environment. Leadership is heavily male dominated, but they treat women well. However, as in any company, need to continue pushing forward to break the glass ceiling at different levels.

    Overall good unless you are in a sales role and require travel and being out a lot to drum up business (where the success is then tied to your year-end comp).

Fairly open and flexible, understanding. Doctor appointments aren't a problem.

There are a lot of women in this company, but to get ahead, you really need to excel and managing "up". Much of HR policy is delegated to "manager discretion", which creates an uneven experience across the company. It really depends who you work for. Northern is known for family-friendly policies, and it is truly bankers hours, 8:30-5. It's pretty modern for a 125-year-old company, but struggles to progress anywhere fast. Progress is sloooow and onboarding is a nightmare, as in, there is no onboarding. You have to figure it out as you go and ask around for help.

This has been a great company to work for as a woman. My boss and the majority of the people I work with are women. Women are well represented in leadership and management roles and the environment is family friendly. Maternity time is generous and I did not feel judged for taking advantage of the full benefits offered. Paid maternity time is generous and FMLA begins after paid time ends rather than running concurrently so I felt I had plenty of time with my little one. There are plenty of opportunities for career development.
