It's fine, but only in comparison to the atrocious American workplace generally.

8 weeks paid parental leave for all new parents. Mother's giving birth get up to 17 weeks paid but part of that is FMLA so you need to be there for a year.

There are a few women in engineering, and at least one in management in a technical role. The Women in Tech group is active but doesn't have the ear of upper management.

I have been working in JNJ for 11 years. I believe women are being treated equally and opportunities for advancements are available. In general, NJN is an absolutely great company to work for, as the JNJ's CREDO is very strong and is is being followed.

Bloomberg is awesome in policy but can be tricky to navigate in practice. The benefits, including health insurance, maternity leave, and other family-friendly perks, are great.. Flex time exists but can be tough to get, and your hours have a way of growing without bound if you don't keep a firm handle on things. In general - and this may be R&D specific, because women comprise about 20% of developers, typically the most junior ones - you have to push hard for what you want. But the boys' club effect is pretty mild and, while I'm usually the only woman in any meeting I attend, most people are able to treat me as an equal.

    Maybe. If you're looking to work in the financial or tech industries in New York City, Bloomberg is a good place to be. I'm not sure I'd recommend working in the financial or tech industries in New York City, though.

I've worked here for 9 years. Management in R&D is male-dominated, but the EVP has recently made it one of his goals to promote more women in leadership positions and is giving VP+ women extra mentoring and leadership opportunities to help them get ahead.
