Already stated my opinion on this topic under the earlier question. While my input is based on my experience in a single department, for less than a year, I found that lower level employees were mainly young, just out of college and HAD TO work long hours (in the office and then from home) under great pressure. Taking time off had consequences not only for the individual employee, but for a whole group whose members had to cover for each other - meaning, if one was out for a day, the backup person had to COMPLETE the job functions of two people what, in some cases, was impossible. This created great stress and low moral in the department. Also, found very little effective communication between groups/departments in spite of hundreds of unnecessary e-mails each day. This signals a defensive, company-wide "just in case, just covering my basis" mentality. Very frustrating and time consuming, non value-adding activity.

    Maybe. It depends. OK for people who do not "rock the boat" and are satisfied with management mandated, even if unefficient and non-productive, processes. Not for professionals, in non-management role, who wish to contribute and suggest new ideas or be part of management decision making. Somewhat of a "factory line mentality", where internal, deparment performance metrics are more important than the well being of customers and employees.

I think women are generally treated fairly, although, there is a sharp division between those with college degrees and those without. It is almost impossible to advance without a degree, regardless of skill set and experience. I have taken medical leave, and while generous, the time out of the workplace is counted against you in annual evaluations and bonus calculations.
