General Electric

Design Department

January 1970

There are parts of the organization that have a male-dominated culture and your voice as a woman is not always heard.

Nike, Inc.

Design Department

January 1970

Nike, specifically at WHQ, is a very family friendly environment. So many young people work here that are just starting their families that it's very common for people to make accomodations for those who need to leave and tend to little ones. Also, you can't walk through campus without seeing more than a few pregnant ladies and babies on walks with the daycare teachers! In addition to that you'll see plenty of women in management and leadership positions. I feel like it's a very balanced environment where you can clearly see paths into leadership. Far from an old boy's club!

    I haven't yet taken advantage of it because I'm still pregnant but Nike just updated their family leave policy to extend the number of paid weeks to 14 for birth mothers. There is also currently a policy of "Transitional Work Schedule" available to parents immediately after returning to work where you can work an adjusted percentage of hours (with the associated adjustment in pay) for up to 12 weeks to create a slow reentry should you want it. I'll be taking advantage of that as well. Between paid family leave, PTO and a transitional schedule, by the time I return 100% to work my baby will be almost 7 months old.
