"This is a great place to work if you are earlier in your career. There is some unfairness to women, but in the lower rungs it is very subtle and infrequent and the project experience you get working here is fantastic. However, I worked in a group that was at least 50% female and we had no female managers or directors. On leveling spread, men tended to be a couple levels higher overall with titles than women in our group. Once you want to actually start achieving manager and director level titles, there is a lot more resistance and women are often left behind."

"It's a great company for younger women. But it's much harder for women to get promoted to manager/director (or higher) levels. There are very few women at these levels."

"IF YOU ARE THE TYPE OF PERSON INTERESTED IN STAYING AT WORK ALL DAY THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU."
Anonymous Review Image
"If you are a woman and work for another woman, you are in trouble. If you are a woman with kids and work there at all, your job will be given to someone else. You will always be in a supporting, subordinate almost admin role. They will proactively tell you it is to help you with "balancing" your home duties. I have sat in meetings with my female superior at 2PM that are running over and she will stop and ask if I need to get home to the baby. What? On a daily basis I am shocked by the ineptitude, lack of leadership and lack of integrity. I go home every day feeling awful."

"It is male dominated company. They logically 'try' to treat women equally but dont always succeed. Women with kids usually leave early to pick up kids and they are usually badly judged due to this. Lot of late hours and weekend support is needed. refusing any of it goes against you and effects are seen in bonus rating"

"My department management treats man and women equally. Gender is not a factor into consideration for promotions at this level; however, higher positions (VPs and above) are occupied predominantly (almost exclusively) by males."

"Non-engineering women can hold mid-level mgt roles; this is a very male engineer dominated company. Outspoken women are side-lined and passed over before they make it to upper management. Company talks the talk but does not walk the walk."

"Women can be lower level managers if you are not in the engineering realm."
Anonymous Review Image
"This is one of the most technical industries and companies I've worked at. There is "0" executive women and very limited business acumen. If you are a hard core technical person you will do fine but you have to be an aggressive personality to be promoted and succeed. Collaboration, leadership and being a great manager are not rewarded so you need to be very comfortable being the ONLY women in the room most of the time and able to hold your own without coming off too aggressive."

"Strong gender bias against women at all levels, starting from the top. For example, Qualcomm has all white male executives. There was only one female executive and she left (and joined Microsoft) after being terribly unhappy. As a mid/high director level employee and find it impossible to proceed without getting "in" with an all male senior crowd, where I clearly feel left out. My experience is not unique and all women employees at my (and higher) levels share the same feeling."

"I've worked here for going on 10yrs and personally only been advanced one time. All the women in my dept are in support roles which makes it impossible to network for advancement. There is another woman that was hired within a week of me and she was advanced 3 times... but we do the exact same thing and I have a technical degree. It was because she found a male champion. This is just a personal example of what you can potentially expect with my company and in my dept."

"Women that have EE degrees have it better because that mgmt see's the value of the degree. But it's still not a great place for women."

"Men are in charge and that isn't changing. Constant re-orgs are engineered and keep those (men) in power in place. No opportunity for advancement, especially for women. Women are held to a different set of performance/behavior standards while men can run around doing whatever they like. People are fleeing for the doors."
