I've been with this company for close to seven years and compared to other companies I;ve worked with, women are given equal opportunities to pursue their career, as well as a lot of flexibility to balance family life with professional life. Women are also provided with a lot of leadership opportunities and in the location where I work, women leaders are equal in number to men and the population is predominantly female than male.
I have worked here for 11 years. I've held a number of roles and have progressed up the corporate ladder quickly, taking risks along the way. Great female colleagues, very smart group of employees. Great work-life balance. But certainly not gaining in the equalization of gender parity. Have definitely works with some sexist managers.
Excellent work/life, flex schedules, not expected to work off hours in general. Great maternity leave, larger locations also have great nursing facilities. I think women are well represented in leadership. A female leads our (very large) BU. It does seem like women without kids are more likely to advance, though. Can sometimes seem like people don't drive for results or are a little lazy. Not great at career development or promotions.
You probably won't get paid as much as your male counterparts for doing the same work. The men at the top are overtly sexist and misogynistic and they only like the women that play along. Once, I and 3 other women walked into a conference room for a meeting with a male VP and he remarked "my harem is here." I can think of two other male VPs who made sexist comments in front of lower-ranking women because they know there are no repercussions.
Gender equality varies between businesses and work groups. Women are promoted up to a point, and then not so much, which has resulted in reduced bench strength when it comes to promoting women past the lower level team lead roles. This is not true of all groups, but many.
The company provides good options for work/life balance. I work from home 2 days per week and am not expected to check email, do additional work after hours.
Overall a great place, but hard to move out of silos.
PTO is very good. 15 days vacation, 4 personal, 6 sick, and 2 volunteer (can be used for school functions). Increase to 20 days vacation at 5 years. My position allows me to flex and work from home. However, in my small division, men have been promoted over more qualified women and that is infuriating. If you want to get ahead, be a tall man who speaks confidently. There is an active women's network on the intranet which is great.
Excellent flexibility in work hours. I work remotely 2 days a week and can shift my hours to accommodate my family's schedule. Full 12 weeks paid maternity (2 weeks paid paternity) and additional unpaid leave allowed if you work with your manager.
