Like any large company, it helps to build relationships with leaders who will advocate for you and to seek mentors familiar with the organization. Otherwise, with the change in strategic focus from manufacturer to digital industrial, you risk getting lost in the constant shuffling of resources and projects.

If you prove your value-add, you are given the flexibility to make choices to ensure work/life balance.

I have had an incredible experience at my workplace. I came from a place that was not kind to women, was not flexible and was not supportive. I have found a totally different environment at GE and I am proud to be an employee here.

Some departments have great flexibility, while others such as sales departments or new account departments have zero flexibility when it comes to flexible hours.

This company consists of mostly women, including the CEO, which is amazing. The CEO is a huge advocate for women in the workplace and has worked with me multiple times to provide a more flexible work week. I currently freelance and am asked constantly how many hours I prefer to work and if I feel over loaded.

A large office with brand recognition and a large number of agents can provide advantages over small-name real estate agencies: better training and coaching, leads provided, opportunites to hold open houses for their top agents too busy to do it themselves, etc. And they offered a better agent/broker split for agents with at least 1 year experience.

You will have schedule flexibility eventually, but until you've built up a substantial flow of sales and commissions, you have to put in 110% time and effort into marketing yourself, including lots of weekend open houses.
Maybe. Depends on the woman, her personality style, and needs, etc.
Just not the right fit for me.

Be prepared to work a minimum of 70 hours a week. There are good policies on paper, but in practice you will not advance in your career if you take advantage of flex time or job sharing. So go in knowing that. Also know that no matter how hard you work, you will never be promoted unless you know the right people and how to curry favor with them.

It depended on the whims of your boss. Some managing partners were much more open-minded than others. In fact, both women and men tried to change departments based on who they knew their boss would be!
Maybe. I must point out that I no longer work at EY; since August 2016 I have been working for another employer. But before that I was at EY for nearly 9 years, so I can speak best about that firm. I honestly don't think there is gender discrimination, but race and ethnicity are real issues; the biases are quite overt in some cases. There are also long-established "cliques" and "inner circles" that are very hard for outsiders to penetrate.
Like all organizations, EY had its problems: very few women at the top, rampant office politics, lack of understanding of different cultures, totally not "getting" millennials, etc. And nobody (man or woman) ever got promoted unless they were part of the inner circle. It was a good place to work overall, but they were behind the times in many ways.

I had a great experience in the Marketing department at IBM with some wonderful managers. I worked really hard from home. However, the new CMO has recently called the entire marketing department back into the office. Everyone in Marketing must work in one of the six colocation marketing hubs. I was asked to move to NYC but I declined. Therefore, I am now looking for a new job.

Maybe. If you are looking for a marketing position, you must be based in one of the six co-location hubs.

Working at A+E Networks can be empowering in the fact that you see many women in high places, however, it takes years to move up and recieve the compensation that you deserve.
