Don't work here. Men tend to gang up on women who want to collaborate or share praise It is seen as weak and they use wo.en as scapegoats.

    Reduce the "young boys club". Fitting into what they rho k a good employee looks like is very prevalent. Young, white males are praised. Fitting in to the clique is more important than delivering results. Challenge their group think paradigm.

I think that GE is heading in the right direction for women, but there still is a long way to go.

    The flexibility depends on your job, but as an employee in the manufacturing function, I work very long hours with very little flexibility.

The School of Social Work is great, but beholden to the State of Texas standards. The vacation and sick time are generous, and you can sign up for STD. Healthcare is great for you and dependents and there is childcare on campus, if you're enrolled. However, because it's the state of Texas, there is 0 paid medical leave, so you have to save your PTO hours up and use that. There are also complicated rules about how much sick vs comp vs PTO you can use in a week. While HR might tell you if you ask/dig, I made my own spreadsheet based on accruals and deductions from my PTO bank to try and estimate/limit my wage disruption. UT has 20k employees and a monthly class for retirees to access their benefits but no such option exists for anyone going on FMLA. So, you can do it well, but you have to work it (and save up your PTO). Also, my particular program had a terrible director in terms of EIQ and labor standards. So, it's a mixed bag.

Many women in support roles. Good number of women in middle management. Few women executives. Maternity leave is paid via short term disability for 6 weeks with a 15 day waiting period and at 70% of your salary. The rest is paid via using sick or vacation time or unpaid via fmla. They have newly renovated mothers rooms for pumping when going back to work.

Low pay and short hours for part time, and when you are hired you are not in any certain dept you have to learn everything from the get go.

    Maybe. We have a new boss and he has made his own attendance policy, because staples did not have much of one to being with, so he made his own, and also he seems to try to stay away from the women, because he does not want to hear what they have to say.

I've worked here for two years and the women to men ratio has fluctuated in that time. Senior leadership (management) is represented by two women and three men, including two owners, so women are definitely respected and valued by the owners. The production team is male-dominated, but not because of a lack of trying to hire female developers and designers. I think women are scared off from applying because they look at our Team page and see a bunch of men, but our environment is great for women in tech.

Work life balance is non-existent. If you have a family, re-think working in this field. You are expected to work holidays with no time in-between. When you grow into management you are expected to work 6 days a week during events or high season - with no extra compensation. Men are promoted through the operations divisions quicker then women. However, a majority of sales managers are female.

Seek our mentors who you connect with and have attributes/experience/professional presence that interest you (or that you'd like to learn more about): meet with your mentors and don't be afraid to ask questions. If you find yourself under a less-than-supportive manager, seek out others, or sit tight because managers tend to shift around rather frequently here...
