It's a great company overall and women are seen as equals in regards to promotion. However, work life balance can be a challenge.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Your department will greatly impact your job flexibility. Some are rigid and require work on holidays and strictly in office, while others are much more flexible.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit facetime)

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.

this is a boys club you can get ahead if you relocate repeatedly during your career here that is the only way to advance at all also men are hired at or above experienced females wages if you are female and not cut throat or willing to relocate repeatedly you will get "stuck" with zero advancement and lower raises than men just had a new hire male come in at what Im making after 16 yrs here which is typical

Looking back to my first day, I would advise myself to build stronger relationships with my peers and utilized them more for support throughout my challenges. My advice to other women is to truly understand the scheduling and time commitments needed for this position, especially small children. You will easily put forth 65 hours/week.
