Senior management is heavily male dominated. A women's group exists that supports internal networking, but the focus on employees is low overall.
I have worked here for 4 years, and had much success with 2 promotions in the first 2.5 years. Highly visible work and aggressive networking will get you promotions. Forced curves exist for the performance evaluations, which are very subjective and 'level set' when all the managers and directors in the division get in the room to talk about each person individually. The company is working to improve the goal setting/performance/feedback loop but it is broken. The United culture operates in a culture where everything is high urgency and high importance. If you are a fire fighter, you will easily get promoted. If you like to plan and resolve issues before they occur, you will be overlooked. There is a lot of consensus building and decisions take a long time to get made. I do feel that managers respect having time outside of work, or time to work from home if needed. Women are valued but if they were treated fairly (with regards to promotions), I think we would see more in management positions.
Many women are in support roles, and the few that are in management positions have little influence.
opportunities are not always as available as they seem. many times same people are tapped to take on new roles and not allowing others the opportunity to build new experiences. sometimes it is difficult to change the minds of those in the decision making roles to make a leap of faith.
