Can be stressful, but opportunities to succeed. Not as much work/life balance for frontline

It would be nice to see more women in leadership positions in the engineering departments and at the executive level. In terms of maternity leave, you get 6 paid weeks for a v-birth. 8 for a c-section. In 2016 'Parental Leave' was introduced which is an additional 2 weeks, available to a man or woman.

    Operations teams can be flexible, sales, marketing. Largely in part because many employees work remotely.

Projects are usually male lead, males get higher salaries and getting promoted or any kind of pay raise is the most difficult at this company

    I had to take all of my vacation and personal days in order to spend more time with my son after I gave birth. Total of 12 paid weeks including maternity leave

Flex-time, alternative schedules, and remote work should to be available company-wide. They aren't. Be upfront with the team you are going to in asking about their perspectives on these policies.

    Women are promoted but only if they perform far above their male counterparts. However men are far more likely to get fired.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Promote those who are not just super women but also those with disabilities that they don't have to keep quiet

IT very male dominated. Women in IT tend to get pigeonholed in support positions at exec level.

Generally speaking, corporate policies and overall atmosphere promotes diversity. The challenge is finding a team and specific management structure that will help you succeed.

Definitely not easy work life balance for families. Women in leadership positions tend to have stay at home husbands since they can't be with their families themselves.

    Their benefits may be standard or higher, but it is viewed negatively for you to take advantage of your benefits. Time off etc. it is incredibly difficult to be able to manage work load and take time off so you end up never taking it off.
