It's a corporation, no perks to lower-rung associates. Gender wise the management is diverse (lots of females) but seem to be out of touch with those they supervisor. Maternity leave is handled as a disability (typical unfortunately) so it is not a negative to take the leave. It is a negative to be out ill for any reason in my department. I've noticed plenty of women who are penalized by management for being absent for caring for sick children.
This is not a family oriented company. Work/Life balance is talked about but does not exist. You will be given a hard time to leave when your child is sick. You must be looking into higher education to move up. Lots of nepotism, raises are dictated by a group of supervisors not just yours and not how well you do your job.
They have a horrible work/life balance. They require you to work multiple shifts and even if you have kids in daycare and it closes before your late shift at 9pm they tell you your options are to quit or find a new day care. They are seriously the worst place ever.
I've worked here almost one year. Everyone I've met has been great. There are a lot of women in my department, and I've formed some relationships with women who work "downstream" who seem to be doing well. I don't know the exact percentage of women in management, but I have seen a lot of women in management positions in my relatively short time there.
I've worked here over 3 years, and though I've seen women enter lower management, I'd say mid-level and upper-level management are predominantly men. Unfortunately, I believe that maternity leave is paid for up to 2 months, and you're "safe" for another month (but it's unpaid) - according to friends who have been on recent mat leave.
I have worked here for just over 3 years, in two different departments. From what I have seen so far, women are treated equally as men. There seems to be an even spread of male and female in middle and upper management. Although, I haven't had to take maternity leave, the amount of time allowed is generous.
