May 2017

The sales force is very heavily male-dominated, but other departments seem to be more evenly split.

    You can't work from home, unfortunately, but management is very flexible when finding balance between their needs from you as an employee and your needs as a parent. Leaving for appointments, missing work due to a sick kid, etc. has never been an issue.

    They follow FMLA so I used my saved paid time towards my leave, there's no formal maternity leave policy.

June 2016

You really need to take advantage of being a woman, take off for your period. Even if you try to be tough and one of the guys you'll be expected to work harder and longer but with no greater chance of higher pay or promotion.

    Maybe. Have a thick skin but also play the woman card, there were women who took off when they got their period, I tried to be one of the men and stay tough and it didn't benefit me any.

While it is a typically male-dominated industry, this company is aware of their standing and conscious of modernizing and moving towards more contemporary attitudes on inclusion.

January 2016

Good environment for women; there is solid mixture of female executives, senior managers and staff. Maternity leave benefits could be more competitive. Flexibility and a focus on whole life makes people better employees is a value that company reinforces with actions.

October 2015

I worked at Mathnasium for over a year. You have to take a mathematics test during the application and most workers have a Bachelor's degree or working towards one. They only offered part time. Low pay even when doing 1-1 tutoring (Cost is $60/hour but you only get $10 of that). You can make more money elsewhere or doing private tutoring.

September 2015

I worked here until I attempted to get a promotion. Another female employee and I both applied for the same open senior-level position (she had many more years of experience than I did), but both of us were told that we didn't have enough experience to handle senior-level work. After leaving the company, I learned that the position was eventually filled with by a man who was the same age as me, with no experience in publishing. Another (female) member of my department was unaware that she was offered a lower salary than had been budgeted for her position, due to her (female) manager's belief that "women don't ask for what they want in the workplace, so she'll accept it anyway" (she did). Of course these are anecdotes, but it left me feeling that being female (and especially a young female) would not get me much respect in the company

    Maybe. the company is flexible enough to accommodate working moms when they need to fulfill their hours outside the normal 9-5 or work from home, which is a huge plus. However women tend not to receive promotions or high salaries at the rate than men do
