Very condescending attitudes towards women, either as support staff or attorneys, from one of the main partners. He spoke that way to everyone below him for the most part, not exclusively towards women. Emotionally abusive work environment.
It is very difficult to advance within your department.
I have worked here for 10 years. On my first day I was very concerned about whether I would be able to prove myself and I started out working way too many hours and stressed out over very tiny mistakes. All of that was unnecessary; simply doing my job to the best of my ability was enough to earn the respect of my supervisors and most of my peers. The extra work hours were not needed and now I am comfortable with just getting my tasks done and, if they are done early, going home to spend some more time with my kids! One important thing I have learned is that you have to filter some men's behavior based on the environment they grew up in. My company has a very diverse population and some of the men (particularly those from the Middle East and India) will automatically dismiss a woman's ideas and cannot be persuaded of a woman's value based on her accomplishments. Fortunately, I have never seen a man of this type promoted to a supervisory position at this company.
