Cisco takes opportunity for all sincerely. I have had amazing career opportunities, and also been able to very successfully be a single mom while working at Cisco when my son was younger, although not as fast of a growth trajectory.

Walmart is a great place to come learn and grow with a company. If you work hard and build relationships you will be rewarded for your efforts.

OfficeMax had a very respectful, family-friendly and inclusive culture. Office Depot does not have the same reputation.

In R&D, most of the leadership is male, but individual departments do have a better balance of men and women (my department head is male but his direct reports are half and half). Family friendliness and flexibility does depend in part on one's individual manager; my boss does not have kids but has been very understanding if I need to deal with kid stuff - as long as I get my work done, he doesn't keep close tabs on me.

My feelings are mixed. I had a wonderful team and an incredibly supportive manager and whip-smart peers. However, about a year ago that all changed. Senior leadership turnover, competent & creative peer departures. What was left was a senior leadership boys network, hostile environment and simply put, confusion. Very few senior women left. Sad.

Manager dependent. Nice company culture. Quarterly driven: you are either selling or developing. You can create a nice work-life balance for yourself - especially if you are virtual. If you are virtual, it seems harder to progress your career. It is hard to understand what it takes to succeed, get promoted, etc.

Very white male-dominated, very rigid work style, makes symbolic appointments of women for good optics. Women who have any power don't last long. Highly bureaucratic, layered,slow. Not open to feedback, just pushes superficial messages of diversity, like hiring more people with Autism, while ignoring the real day to day issues with other populations.

I've worked here for 9 years. Management in R&D is male-dominated, but the EVP has recently made it one of his goals to promote more women in leadership positions and is giving VP+ women extra mentoring and leadership opportunities to help them get ahead.

Building relationships organically is the best way to get work done. Labyrinthine bureaucracy because it is a very, very, large organization. Most of the senior organization is white male and rather hierarchical. All that being said, I've had some great experiences that have come from demonstrating my brains, work ethic, and diplomacy skills and not because someone "gave" me the opportunity.
