July 2017

They try, they really do. But at the end of the day there are just too many men with partners at home who take care of the home and the family for them to understand what it's like to try to balance home and family. Several of the higher ups even have families (some of them have large families) but they still work and don't take family time or vacations.

    There's a lot of talk of flexibility but the reality is that most of the employees are men with partners at home who take care of everything for them. So even if you come in early to put in 12-15 hours before 4pm to be at pick up on time, you still get the evil eye for leaving "early". When you use your vacation, you get snide comments covered up by jokes. Employees stand around comparing comp time hours - most of them have triple digits and end up having to cash out vs. taking the hours. Those employees are praised. Employees with less than triple digits are mocked.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. if you don't have a family yet - are just building your career and don't have a family to support then it's a fun company with great culture. But once you need time to care for a family, finding balance becomes a daunting and difficult task.

May 2017

Don't think it's a friendly environment to work in for anyone - a lot of politics and finger-pointing, but that's not limited to women.

February 2017

The team is supportive, flexible hours for new moms, and the team is small enough that I'm able to bring my son in here and there when in a bind.

April 2016

Family-friendly policies and practices vary across the company. Some business units are very flexible, while others almost expect 24/7 availability to the company. Regarding benefits, family/medical leave, etc., it is average. Sad because it used to be ranked very highly as a great place to work.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / unpaid

    4 weeks paid if natural birth, 6 weeks paid if C-section in the US. But in other global offices, mothers get almost a year off. It would be nice if it was more consistent, although I have to say my local manager was very flexible about allowing me to work from home for 2 additional weeks.

There is definitely a pervasive "old boys club" that inadvertently puts boulders in the way of the path to success for the company and non-members of the club within the company.
