    Depends on the specific group you work in. Also for the above question about Emily-friendly policies, I'd like to select none of the above

    Improve work life balance and improve benefits. Since headquartered in California those employees get different and most often significantly better benefits. For example, we can only carry over 5 pto/vacation days and they expire after a few months. That is unless you live in California they never lose their vacation days and never expire.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It's a very large company and as much as the company tries to fight it. Every group/Line of Business is different.

See recent scandal(s). Unfortunately, the core is rotten and has been for some time. It is going to take many years to repair. The company cares more about saving its reputation and they know they have scale on their side. The same core management is still at the company. Only the very top was ousted. There is tremendous pressure on the team members to clean up the mess. (including new hires). Wells has affinity groups but it is not very engaging. the IT organization is still heavily male dominated and not many women in middle management in the pipeline. CEO Signed diversity pledge but the company needs more action. There is no obvious efforts to mentor or enage women.

Negotiate salary before coming on board otherwise the annual merit increases have always been 0 - 2%, not enough to keep up with the increases costs to employees for health insurance

Don't. Find a job elsewhere, where women actually value and elevate each other.

    While the company has great values that are stated in writing, its regions do not necessarily follow those values. My office is small and there were some issues and rumors going around the office. They got pretty bad, to the point that I had to call a meeting with my manager and one of the people who had started them. The meeting went well and my manager and I were talking afterword. I sort of rhetorically asked why these people even talked about me, I’m a fairly normal person with a fairly normal life; and don’t they have their own to worry about? I was told: “Well, you’re a pretty girl and you should assume that anytime you interact with or are friends with a male colleague, people will talk and spread rumors about you." My (female) boss then promoted the very people that tore me and the team apart.

Gain flexibility via the value you bring to the team. Do not bring up needing flexibility for family needs.

The company is great all around, however flexibility is really dependent on the LOB you're in. So ask the right questions and set your expectations right off the bat.

    This was in 2008 and I had only been working for the company for 2 months at the time so the leave was short. They now offer 16 weeks of maternity (primary caregiver) and 4 weeks of paternity (secondary caregiver) leave.

Set your boundaries early. It is easy to get sucked into the firedrill mentality where everything needs to be done immediately. By setting your boundaries early, (for example leaving at 5 for a workout or coming in at 9 so you drop your kids off) it will be more likely that they will be respected.

    I would say that it depends on your manager and their leader. I have experienced flexibility under some areas while having very rigid standards under other groups.

    Friends have taken the maternity and paternity leave and really appreciate the time it have them with their kids.

    Maybe. It is still a "good ole boy's club" to some degree, so as long as the person goes in knowing what to expect, I would be ok with recommending it.

I have enjoyed my small department. My manager promotes my personal and professional development. She is flexible with my schedule and cares about me as a person. As I've only worked for one manager here, I can't speak to the company as a whole. I was happy to learn that they extended maternity leave but they didn't let me have this benefit because it started after I began my maternity leave. This seemed very unfair as I only received three full weeks of paid time and the remaining 7 weeks I took (11 weeks total) I had to cover half of my pay and benefits

    My department is smaller so we tend to be more flexible with schedules and families, but I know this is not the case for the majority of people who work here.
