Flexibility is there, but you might have to take the initiative to ask for/about it!

Be persistent about asking for promotions and raises. Don’t cave to the good old boy culture reflected in the highest levels of management.

I see a lot of diversity here across levels and on various leadership teams. I don't feel that I am treated differently here due to my gender or race, which is very important to me.

    Relatively flexible, but can be highly manager dependent. Shire would benefit greatly from having more explicit guidelines around work from home policies.

    I have not taken maternity leave but the policies seem fine. Am disappointed the leave policies are not more generous, as it would make Shire a more attractive employer.

It’s a great environment, management is very professional and more than anything understanding when it comes to absolutely anything. I have a large family and I know if something ever comes up all it takes is a convo with my director and he chimes in with a solution or idea.

There is a lot of support, at least in Cincinnati, for working women and mom's. P&G provides excellent flexibility and when I come to work I am able to bring my full self.

I don't believe sexual harassment is part of our culture, but I think TRC teaches you to be either very clear about what you need or gives you some bad habits around waiting for other people to offer you opportunities. It's a great place to take initiative and run!

Be a researcher can be challenging but you have a lot of advantages in terms of flexibility. They are trying to reduce the women/men gap
