I've worked here for 1month, so I couldn't say much about my company. But until now is O.K.
I've worked here for almost 3 years, and have found that women here are treated fairly for the most part...until it comes time to fill a senior management role. Overall, though, the company does emphasize work/life balance, and it's not unusual for employees - men and women - to duck out early to pick up the kids, or work from home when a child is sick.
I've worked here for 13 years. I wish that I had been better about keeping relationships after I switched positions. Grow your network and take advantage of any opportunity to meet senior leaders.
Relax. Give yourself a year to learn and get your footing. When your manager assigns you an area to cover, reach out to others to learn everything you can about it. Ask everyone you talk with to suggest another person to talk to. If the conversation goes well and you like the person, ask them if you can meet again at some later date to review your work and get advice. Once you feel comfortable, don't limit yourself to what you're assigned to do -- seek out projects, offer to help others, if you are passionate about something, do it. That's the best kept secret around here: if you tell enough people you're working on something, eventually you will be -- just make sure it falls within your org's product/goals/vision. Have fun and connect with others. It'l be great!
