It is a great global companyto work for with great people and consistent cultural values everywhere around the world, but still very old school in attitude with respect to advancing women to leadership levels

You will not be compensated fairly for the work, hours or expected investment. The people at the top have made good,good money for so long they cannot imagine others struggling just to get by.

Don't work here. They're are no women in leadership and the CEO is an actual misogynist. Stay away.

    They had such an outdated policy that just because I didn't physically give birth to my newborn baby myself, they fought with me and only wanted to give me 1 week.

    Good luck trying to raise a family while working here. They'll pigeon hole you into a job with no growth.

To be clear about what she wants and where she wants to reach. Finding the right sponsor and mentor is key to climb the ladder. I have worked at PwC in many different countries but the Middle East with Arabic and British partners is really a weak place for a non-British/non-Arab women.

    Flexible hours, location and working timings as long as there is commitment from the employees.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It really depends on the reporting partner, the group that woman will work in and the nationality/background of the team.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Promote not only single women that have devoted their careers but also promote, empower and endorse working mothers that are not only working but have other commitments outside work. Single women have commitments but they have also more flexibility or are willing to use their time outside work to work related matters.

I would say to be cautious in senior leadership roles. Women are there but the organization has a long way to go to treat them the same.

    If you work in the corporate office or non shift based hospital work, you can negotiate flexibility if your manager / director allows. It's getting better but not all are the same.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. At senior level it is mostly men. Women are not treated the same. Nurses tend to be women so nursing leaders are most respected as women.

If you're under the COO, you're protected. If you're a man, you're protected.

    If you're a higher up, you get preferential treatment. Too bad if you're earning $11 an hour.

The female upper management here is the best argument for never promoting women. They live down to every negative reason or cliche ever used against women. They are an embarrassment to their gender.

    This s is a terrible place to work. To be avoided at all costs. CEO is a woman and a total disgrace; corrupt, mean, vindictive and psychotic. Only her psychophents survive. Everyone else leaves within 6-12 mos and can't get away fast enough.

The company is made up of 98% women, which is sometimes a challenging environment. During my interview, the CEO advised me of this statistic & asked me if that would be alright with me. It can be very "clique-y". Also, believe in your abilities & your opinions - do not be bullied by someone in a higher position...even if it is your supervisor.

    All decisions in Design department are made by the VP, who spends her entire days in meetings, thus delaying timeline due dates and causing unnecessary scrambling at the last minute. Trust your team & allow them to make decisions so timelines are adhered to and time is allowed for necessary corrections so product is great - not just good.

    Improve cross-functional communication, respect the time & workload of your colleagues, do not demean colleagues in group meetings, cultivate the talent you have - learn about the people that work for you & what their day-to-day job actually entails.

I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone, and especially not to women. Women are continually disrespected by management, and the worst part is women are even worse to other women than the men are.

Ask about other females in your department and if they transferred in or were hired from outside. Outside hires are paid more.
