"There is flexibility and support for women but it's hard to move up in the company without giving a lot of that up. I'd also add the company is struggling to accept women who have stereotypically masculine leadership styles."

"In their own words they have a women problem. There are more women than men at the entry level but those percentages shift dramatically with every level. While the environment is intellectually stimulating and people are very pleasant, it is extremely difficult to get promoted and will likely take an overseas secondment to make it happen. Around 2011 they started a program to specifically encourage and develop female talent. It was excellent and really encouraged me to take charge of my career (and look elsewhere for my next)."

"Already stated my opinion on this topic under the earlier question. While my input is based on my experience in a single department, for less than a year, I found that lower level employees were mainly young, just out of college and HAD TO work long hours (in the office and then from home) under great pressure. Taking time off had consequences not only for the individual employee, but for a whole group whose members had to cover for each other - meaning, if one was out for a day, the backup person had to COMPLETE the job functions of two people what, in some cases, was impossible. This created great stress and low moral in the department. Also, found very little effective communication between groups/departments in spite of hundreds of unnecessary e-mails each day. This signals a defensive, company-wide "just in case, just covering my basis" mentality. Very frustrating and time consuming, non value-adding activity."

"There are a lot of women in the more junior roles, but fewer as you get to the top of the organization. The maternity leave policies in the US are better than what's legally required, but by no means generous - surprising for a company that is supposedly to progressive with regard to the advancement of women. It's a lot of talk about doing the right thing, but not as much action."

"While the company is supportive of women, a lot of the women in senior leadership roles have husbands/partners who have very flexible careers. It's not super easy for dual income families. Most of the senior leaders have worked abroad, as well, which is very tricky to navigate when balancing two careers. Maternity leave policies are good but not great and there is no on-site day care despite employees asking time and again."

"I have been employed for 3 years. They offer good insurance, paid vacation, 401K, and a discount in factory company store. Im happy with my job, it is very clean and theres not real hard work for the pay in this area, it is actually good. They recognize 8 paid holidays although good Friday or eater is not one of them. The company is involved in many non profit organizations to help the fight against world hunger, relay for life and some others. They provide many hair products at this location. It is a international global company."
