There are a ton of women working here, and I'm sure most have a good experience. It was difficult in my department to take days off for child care without being made to feel like you were abusing the system. It was also frowned upon to raise your hand for opportunities or new learning experiences. I often felt like y requests to take on more and grow were not taken seriously. I would like to add, though, that while I did experience this in my department, HR was wonderful at hearing my concerns and helping me move forward into a different position. They understood the importance of confidentiality and were extremely professional.
Job Satisfaction Level
The experience I had was because of my direct report-to.
I have worked for the company 12 years, started from the ground up. I have been very fortunate to work for a brilliant boss who mentored and helped me to achieve the person I am today. What advice I can give you is build strong relationships with the senior management (which is predominantly older and male). This can be difficult for women but it will help you with your career advancement.
This place has so many opportunities for growth. They are great at using your talents and giving you a career not just a job. A foot in the door has better long term value... Just try to get in somewhere and demonstrate your talent.
I wasn't offered a paid maternity leave because we adopted. The company did however offer an adoption supplement of $5k at the time but this didn't come close to covering what I would have been paid of I had a paid maternity leave. The group I was in had a pretty good work life/family balance. My male Boss was married to a business executive so he understood the needs of a working Mom, Not all Sr Management feels the same way. I was very lucky and had a great flexible work experience.
