There are more women than men in most teams with the exception of the product team. Some women with children take the opportunity to reduce their hours and work 4 days per week. The maternity policy is generous.

I'd like to see more women in leadership positions. While PLM provides unlimited PTO and offers a good work/life balance, the maternity leave could be better.

AAFP offers a lot of flexibility but that culture is changing. Expect to put in many more hours than required (at least in marketing) and work through lunch. You can leave early and work from home, but too much of it will negatively impact perception of you. AAFP also has an odd compensation structurw that rewards tenure over performance. If you want to do the minimum and don't care about comp, come here. If you are highly motivated and a strong performer, you will carry a bigger burden than others ... you also won't be compensated for that work. It's a mixed bag. But it is a good place for moms if you aren't overly ambitious.

People are worked very hard, regardless of gender. Three major locations - Japan, Germany, and US - which means long meeting that take place from 11pm until 2 or 3 am. Lots of flexibility, but long hours killed my sleep.

Expect to be spoken to like a child. The owners and upper management have zero respect for you and will likely attempt to hold your job over your head at every turn.

    They expect long hours and high productivity from their employees but do not provide any benefits to offset the toll of those demands to the employees.

    Promote more women into leadership positions, improve work-life balance and policies, improve my compensation, and improve my benefits. Also, treat employees with respect and dignity.

It's a woman-led company with many women in leadership and executive roles. They are very progressive in their benefits, including flexible schedules, remote work opportunities, job sharing, mat leave and private rooms for new mothers who are breastfeeding.

Even if the company prides itself on having women CEOs, there is a clear boys club within the day-to-day.

It’s changing, but all things being equal the man will get over promoted and the woman will not be promoted. Again, it’s changing, but not quickly enough.

There is great opportunity across the VML network for women in all disciplines. Certainly, some of the strongest leaders are women. The merger with Y&R may bring changes, but a strong, capable leader would be embraced- woman or man.

    I think flexibility is a broad term, so it's difficult to answer. For instance, you can certainly work from home as needed. If a personal item pops up, your team will definitely cover for you and there isn't any grief from management. However, VML Atlanta still has room to grow in celebrating different professional styles.

    Maybe. Different VML offices are unique. The Kansas City headquarters has a lot of strong female leaders. I worked in the Atlanta office, and we did not have the same. For younger women, Atlanta would be a great place to start with VML; however, for more senior positions, you won't find a lot of sisters in management.

The work is interesting, the people interaction is rewarding & diverse, the work-life balance is positive & improving, but when at work you are expected to work hard and put in extra efforts when required (give & take).

    It is different by department, but the department I work for, supports flexibility as long as the results are achieved.

    Dig deeper into job sharing so part-time offerings would be truly available & truly part-time.
