many women working in the typical departments (HR, Marketing, Administration), high flexibility in terms of working schedules, many women work part-time, however they end up working longer than they have written in their contract.

Unless you are comfortable with comments about these agent's wives or lovers on the side, stay far away. Noboy should have to hear about these things.

Unless you are looking to reach the pinnacle of achievement in Finance, are young and able to work literally around the clock and MAYBE break through a glass ceiling, don't bother.

Great perks and benefits, especially for working moms or expecting mothers. There health benefits and 401k matching are the best I've ever seen!

Pay is excellent, but "respect for people" core value often loses something in translation between management/scientists and administrative staff.

    Maybe. Hard to objectively evaluate equality working in an intrinsically subservient administrative position.

    Expand career paths available for administrative assistants. Once you're hired as an admin it's difficult to get into another area without leaving the company, & the admin career path itself is very limited.

Depending on your supervisor they can be very flexible, but sometimes changing your hours or taking time off can be a pain if your supervisor is not willing to compromise.
