Top-down, the company is female-friendly, but internally there is still work to be done in terms of rooting out underlying attitudes. It's not perfect, but it's not terrible.

If you are interested in work/life balance and the flexibility to have a family, this is a great company for you. But if you want to climb the corporate ladder, shatter the glass ceiling, it's going to be a daily battle. There are not enough women in leadership roles, and while the company is working internally to change this, it's slow moving.

    Maybe. The company is heading in the right direction, and there are certainly wonderful benefits to working here, but pay and promotion is a huge area for improvement.

    IBM is a company that prides itself on work/life balance. After my preganancy my manager allowed me to work remotely until I was ready to return back to the office.

Overall stable job without crazy hours or overload. Great maternity leave policy. There might not be as much career growth as you want since it's part of the defense industry (I felt like this before having kids). But as a busy mom, it might be just enough to balance life out :)

While the PR doesn't look good, this is a great time to be at Uber. Women's voices are being heard in new ways, allies for women are speaking up for better work environments. There is a positive wave of energy that is fueling what women are doing and how women's leadership and voice are being leveraged to improve Uber as a business and place to work.

    With the current performance review process, the company values contradict family-focused decisions. You have to tradeoff time: time with work or time with family, and that might impact the midyear and annual performance review.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. We are in the midst of a huge, positive shift in the work environment culture and a big part of that is to improve the work environment for women.

You need to be very assertive to borderline aggressive to be noticed as someone who has impact, if aren't seen as having impact you won't progress and will eventually be managed out. If you're looking for a promotion, it is expected that you're working at the level of the promotion before you're considered a candidate.

    The hours are flexible but the workload can be heavy so you're still squeezing in the 50 hours of work, but you can decide if you do it at 10am or midnight.

The people are great and the mission was worth it, but the employees did not feel valued by the company. Communication was poor and oftentimes responses to complaints were answered unsatisfactorily with "just suck it up" or "there are worse things."

Excellent parental leave and family-friendly policies; flexible work schedules; ability to go to part time as needed; more women slowly getting promoted to leadership; maternity leave never been a hinderance to promotion
