If you have a great team and manager, it can be a great place to work. Upward mobility can be limited if you are unwilling to relocate (in my case, my husband's job made this difficult). They do often relocate working couples together, offering them both jobs so they are improving in this area.

    Short Term Disability is the maternity policy - you are paid for the time you are medically unable to work at 100%.

    Flexibility varies by function - little flexibility offered within finance teams (where I worked) with long hours required by most. Other departments were much more flexible, seemed very dependent on your individual manager.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Traditional manufacturing environment but some items like flex scheduling do vary by location. Talent development plans in place and promotional opportunities are plentiful, especially if willing to relocate within the business units.

dont do it because its not worth the hassle. The credit analyst role is catered especially for men and you will be pushed to the underwriting side.

There is some lag in this company when it comes to pay equity, but as we hire more women, it's getting better. So, the more women here, the more power we have.

    We follow MA state regulations, but allow parents to take up to 12 weeks unpaid even though we are not subject to FMLA.

Flexibility and work-life balance is great. They are trying to advance more women. Like many other companies they focus on those under 35. No real opportunities for development if you are a women who took time off and returning to the work force.

    Maybe. Depends on the role - for young women yes. Women over 45 are not treated as fairly as men in the same age group.
