January 1970

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.

    It depends. OK for people who do not "rock the boat" and are satisfied with management mandated, even if unefficient and non-productive, processes. Not for professionals, in non-management role, who wish to contribute and suggest new ideas or be part of management decision making. Somewhat of a "factory line mentality", where internal, deparment performance metrics are more important than the well being of customers and employees.

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.

Company does not think family should come first. You should be able to rearrange your life at a drop of a hat to work more hours. Lots of over time and working short staffed.

The company gives great benefits for maternity leave. They take great consideration of you in terms of family emergencies. You're overall treated fairly assuming management isn't female and rather take advice from a male coworker with less experience, then I guess it's fair.

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.
