Women are treated equally at this workplace, however there is a lack of women in leadership positions and a fairly high rate of young female attrition

Don't expect to get promoted beyond manager unless you are at HQ. You may have to fight for your full maternity leave benefits, which are already dismal. Salary differentials can only be handled via the merit increase cycle which is a very small budget every year. A side affect is that performance ratings are manipulated to allow for larger increases for a few key people and everyone else gets 1%. The "e-team" aka executives are mostly white and mostly male. The two newly promoted women are white. It used to be more diverse before the current CEO, who likes to hire his friends. Slides during all team presentations show mostly white males. When asked in an All Company meeting about improving diversity, the CEO basically said the equivalent of "I have a binder of woman". There is zero initiative to improve diversity at this company.

    It really depends on your manager and where you are located. I consider myself lucky to have a lot of flexibility with WFH and hours. Not sure this would be possible at HQ.

    If you are based at Texas HQ, you will only get 12 weeks FMLA and 6-8 weeks disability (concurrent with FMLA). If you are not based in HQ, you may have to hire an attorney to get your state laws enforced, as the company outsources to Liberty Mutual and LB ignores requests.

    Maybe. Large company with 3 different groups and many international locations, so everyone's experience will be different. I'm in the US but not at HQ so that informs my opinion of "maybe" recommendation.

If you're willing to stay stagnate in your career then this could be a great option for you. Most of the people are very nice, there's just a lot of unconscious bias towards having women in leadership positions and giving promotions.

Company has a huge "old boys club/network" of men that have worked here as much as 30-40+ years. Promotions are based on politics/friendships. I've been held to an explicitly different standard than my male colleagues. Culture is far worse than I've seen in other jobs.

You have to be your own advocate. I am very vocal when I see an issue or want to change a process. I have found my managers are willing to listen and accomodate requests. But I have to initiate discussions for change of my role or project responsibiliites.

    Flexibility is office specific. Being in a large metro my department has to be flexible to accommodate commute times and child care requirements for all employees.
