Worked here for 7+ years. Flexibility is great but hours are long.
Currently I am the only female working in the security division at my office, as well as the youngest staff member. Also in all the projects I've been staffed on, I've been the only or one-of-three females. But all my managers and co-workers treat me with respect and recognize that I am equally as capable to do the same work. The way you get treated is based on the quality of work that you do, not gender.
I see a lot of women in upper leadership roles and mobility within the company doesn't seem to be restricted by sex, that being said - having taken maternity leave twice with this company, taking 25% of the year off (or more if you take unpaid leave) can set you back a bit in terms of returning to the workplace and re-establishing your place amongst your peers and re-building relationships. Now that men can take 6 weeks off for paternal leave, hopefully that balances out some.
There is a bit of a boys club feel here (e.g., partners take male staff out to strip clubs...). The official firm stance is clearly supportive but this does not always play out in day to day life.
I've worked here for over a year and a half and there are many successful women here. I feel that as a woman, I can network with both my female and male colleagues. My practice is led by a woman who has both a career and family life, which proves to me that there are opportunities of growth in the firm, whereas it may have been difficult in other fields.
I stay because of the flexibility, but I do have to sacrifice quite a lot of my career for it.
Wonderful organization that treats its people right. If you are good to the Firm, the Firm is good to you. I have never felt held back because I am a woman.
I have been with this organization my entire career. There is a high turnover in public accounting so I have worked with many colleagues. I truly believe that your experience in this company will differ drastically depending on which group you are in and which specific partner you are working for. I wish there was more consistency here.
I've been here over a year & expected a promotion however, in the male dominated technical field there are many barriers to women in mindset, expectation & style/culture.
You will work many hours but it is flexible depending on your clients / projects; many opportunities for advancement; entrepreneurial environment; good community for women; work culture varies slightly by your office / city but overall a vast network and strong work ethic
