The company had idealistic aims in the beginning, but with downsizing those ideals have been compromised.

Depending on the organization/department, women are mostly treated equal to men. You might come across field personnel who will initially treat you as someone less-than, but once you speak to them and work with them, it usually changes instantly into equal coworkers.

Operations

Protiviti and its leadership have continued to support me in my career as I've navigated life changes, including a move, having children, and a parent beating cancer. The work I have done and the leaders I have worked with have undoubtedly helped me to grow. The people and culture are what truly make this a great place to work. Wherever my path may lead me there is no doubt that my time at Protiviti will leave an indelible mark on my life.

Our workplace is very diverse and inclusive. It really is more like a family where we support each other in all that we do!

    Although General Electric has a permissive leave policy, taking any time off is frowned upon. Women in leadership roles at GE can struggle with work life balance due to the endless demands and the expectation to always be available. Many talented leaders have recently left the company, leaving amateurs at the helm. These new leaders have not maintained the culture of engagement, inclusiveness, safety, and work-life balance that I once valued.

morale is low; on the surface, gender diversity is supported but there are a lot of politics at play behind the scenes. I would recommend working to the best of your capability, networking to the highest level possible, keeping your eyes & ears open for advancement opportunities, and going for them as soon as they present themselves.

Still a long way to go in terms of workplace culture for inclusion and diversity - Oil & Gas is still very heavily an old boys' club. Base case I think the nature of manufacturing and production facilities which are running 24/7/365 tends to push people to feel like they always need to be available. The company does have good benefits, especially with the extra 8 weeks of family leave passed in 2017. Biggest challenge is setting your own limits for work/life balance as the culture will always be there pushing to be available more hours and "always on".

    Company passed an extra 8 weeks of family leave for both parents in 2017, which is a great improvement. Still remains to be seen what the fallout will be for employees who actually use their time off, as the general culture is flexible work hours on paper "at supervisors discretion" and then judging people behind their backs for not putting in long hours and a lot of desk time. Overall, culture pushes people to work extra hours (running joke is the question - "Why give employees 9/80s when we get them to work 10/100s?")

    Maybe. Women seem to be somewhat fairly treated on the management side as there is a focus on pushing women into the management track in middle management. However, there is still a shortage of women at the upper level of management, and two of the very senior women have retired this year and were replaced by men due to a lack of "qualified candidates". Very few women on the technical side are promoted into the upper ranks (first female Chief Engineer every for ExxonMobil Chemical in 2017). Company culture prioritizes employee location flexibility and willingness to work on expatriate assignments as career development requirements but does not provide expat assignments in equal number to women even in locations that are safe.
