I feel fairly supported by my team as a woman but working on an all-male team has its challenges.

Talk with other women and men about your concerns, they may have already gone through the same thing you are going through and most likely will help.

    Flexibility is a function of the manager's preferences and particular managers can be harsh when it suits them.

This is a fun place to work. However, depending on the office you work from the culture towards women may vary.

The culture needs to change- it's a lot of old white men in my group, with some very conservative views. It's not inclusive. A push to actually include more people of different gender and of different race would be highly beneficial.

    The maternity leave here is supposed to be very good. I am not sure on the specific details.

    Hire more women into engineering, and take people's conversations seriously- I've heard some absolutely atrocious comments regarding some women in general. If I say something, I'll get labeled a b&$*% and nothing else changes besides me isolating myself from the others. Flex time is available, but the group I'm in rarely approve it.

If you thought you knew the culture of UTAS before, be sure to look again. The company is making big strides toward work/life balance and building an inclusive, empowered workforce. Policies are changing and manager training is widespread.

    Flexibility varies by manager and by job function. Most are very flexible but there are a few exceptions.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    8 paid / 4 unpaid

    The maternity policy changed since I was on leave. Now the policy is 8 weeks paid for giving birth and an additional 4 weeks paid family leave (12 weeks paid total for giving birth). The 4 weeks paid family leave also applies to adoptive mothers. Fathers are also eligible for the 4 weeks paid family leave for birth or adoption.

This place is great for women. Men and women are treated equally and promoted and encouraged at all levels. I strongly encourage women to join ADP for career growth opportunities while finding good work life balance, specially for ambitious working mothers.

    As mentioned earlier, work place is far (40+ miles) for most of the employees and involves lot of commute time. Should allow more remote work to avoid spending lot of time in commute which can get translated into more work and better work life balance.

    The flexibility for exempt team members is awesome for the most part. However, there are many non-exempt/hourly positions that do not have much flexibility so it creates an issue of perceived unfairness for those who do not reap the benefits of having additional flexibility in their current positions. It would be nice if there were other options made available for non-exempt/hourly team members.

This company recognizes hard work. So work hard, let your voice be heard, literally take a seat at the table and ensure to identify a mentor.

I think UTC has made strides in gender equality, women in leadership, and fair treatment of all employees. As a female in tech, I have never felt like I have been passed over on opportunities due to my gender. I truly believe this company focuses on who is the right person for the job, and ensuring all employees are working on their development. While many people may point and say "look there are not that many female executives in the technical disciplines" but the truth is - it is not disproportionate to the percentage of women with the experience to lead in such high roles. I believe in UTC's paradigm for parity campaign and feel empowered to keep growing my career.

    UTC has recently rolled out a flex program which helps each individual to create a flexible work plan that works for them and their team. This allows you to adapt it to your specific needs, while ensuring that you are supported and your team is also covered.
