Definitely an uplifting, female-driven inspiring place to work - no sense of balance for moms/work-life.

Freelancing can be difficult in the sense that it is harder to take time off when you need it to pick up kids, go to appointments, ect. Fortunately I've been working with companies that give me more flexibility than most.

The benefits and materntiy leave benefits are really great. However, SLB is a giant, slow-moving corporate machine. Nothing happens quickly and everyone seems to be stuck doing things how they've always been done. In my department, great suggestions were regularly shot down, but it seemed like they liked to give you hope that it could work and it would just take months for them to finally (officially) shoot your idea down.

    There was just a level of drudgery. The work was always exactly the same and there was almost no such thing as moving up. There's was nowhere to move within my department, and my role in marketing communications didn't lend itself to accepting roles outside of the marketing department.

Working from home used to be a no, but not that we've moved downtown, it's been easier for some to work from home some days. Though still not an easy gig to get for most. The favorites get it.

    Women get paid 2 months. Frowned upon if you take more unpaid.

Everything varies greatly depending on location and department. Some managers are more flexible than others, and some departments actually have female managers, although on the news side, the higher up you go, the fewer women in management you'll see. It also depends on your role. If you're a reporter overseas, you'll be expected to be available on-demand at all hours (because everything revolves around the New York time zone and editors have little respect for your personal life and the fact that you have one and it's in a different time zone). That's understandable when it's breaking news, but they won't make any attempts to edit your stories early even when they're features; they will put it all off until they day before the story runs and make you stay up until 3 a.m. to answer questions that could have been addresses weeks ago during reasonable hours. The recent union study obviously shows that men are paid better for doing the same work. Pay and benefits vary widely at the company, unforutnately, and there is no standard package. It just depends what you're able to negotiate at the time you come in (best bet is to take a job here in the fall, as the budget restarts July 1, and so there's never any money until the new budget year). There are a lot of opportunities to move about in the company, which is one of the good things about working here, and depending on your role, a lot of it can usually be done remotely, at least in theory. But moving up into a management position is more difficult and it doesn't seem that women make it very often. (For example, every single bureau chief in the Asia Pacific region is a white male.)

    Maybe. Depends what you're looking for; if you're willing to put up with some of the downsides of working here in exchange for working at a top brand newspaper, it could be worth it.

Hiring and retaining strong female leaders is a big priority for the company, which has been historically very male-focused. At this point you're still more likely than not to be one of the few females in the room if you're at the higher levels, but that is changing. The men in the company still need to learn that men and women express themselves differently (they can suck the air out of a room), but I'm very happy with the family leave policies and the focus on diversity.
