The right things are in place to implement a diverse environment. There are still pockets of improvement areas which need to be addressed, but overall good.

    Flexibility is up to the supervisor and individual. If you develop a good plan for work and communication flexibility is great.

Depending on who you work for, it can be a good experience. But the company benefits and culture are lacking deeply. Associates are not cared about on a corporate level.

    It depends on where you work. My direct manager is very flexible allowing me to log on early, drop off kids at school, then head to the office. But other managers have a strict office only policy.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    8 paid / 4 unpaid

    I was told that it was full pay 12 weeks. After birth, turns out it was not, it was 60% 8 weeks. Financially and emotionally stressful, as we were not prepared for this difference in pay.

I’m a single mom with aging parents. I’m managing to be the best mom that I can be, a good daughter and leading contributor at work. These are my desired must haves that are posted on my mirror, and which I recite to myself daily. It’s a wonderful sweet spot to be! I would not be able to realize these goals/desires without the help of having the culture and working environment of UTC. For that I am thankful for.

    It depends on your job function. If you are close to operations, less flexibility understandably. The key is for the individual to understand what role will fit.

Much depends on your direct manager but I have found the hours to be very reasonable and have the ability to work remotely when I need to.

There are many women who support each other. However, compensation is low (especially entry level) and due to the hierarchical nature of agency culture, negotiation rarely works out your way.

Vanguard Group

This company has lost lawsuits made against them for their treatment of female employees. Know what you are getting into, and never for a moment think their mid management's need for constant positive feedback is misunderstood. It is a need, and if you don't always give positive feedback, their anonymous daily and weekly surveys will come back on you.

    Flexibility is totally reliant on whether your boss and your boss's boss likes you. you are told daily to remember to "brand" yourself well with leadership and encourage you to research all team leads in your department so that you can present yourself differently when they are in your ear shot. that, to me, seems to be a bit different than merely suggesting that their employees learn their job and learn it well to support other departments, the company and the clients. but, to each their own.

    When they can find a balance for business strategy and growth, while protecting clients, and not promote based on cheerleader enthusiasm, but on actual business acumen and professionalism, then they will have a more legitimate place to work and invest.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If you are able and willing to focus, live and breathe only Vanguard for 10% less income than competing firms, and conduct projects only for your next promotion, not for the overall good of the business or the client, and you can do this with a high school cheerleader enthusiasm, then this is the place for you.
