The promotions are very unequal. Don't let the female CEO fool you. In addition, the time off and working arrangements are very unflexible.

It helps the community, but they don't really embrace motherhood with flexiblity with telecomute or maternity benefits.

    Maybe. There are a lot of caring people here and I have some the most encouraging coworkers. Managers can be a bit micromanagers and the maternity benefits are not that great. The maximum amount of pay you get when you have a child is 4 weeks if you have a C Section and that is at 90% pay.

I worked here for a year. The retail environment was the closest thing to a Utopia I have ever experienced. Fairness and equality for all seems to actually be happening here!! Much love!

I worked for this employer for over a decade. There are a lot of inter-office politics that women often do not benefit from in the end. Performance is supposedly rewarded, but not without meeting unrealistic goals. Additionally, those that are in executive leadership roles tend act condescendingly to support staff.

    Maybe. Depends on the role. Higher positions tend to favor men and women in those roles have a chip on their shoulder.

The UC system does not contribute to California State Disability and do not allow their employees to do so either. If you plan on taking maternity leave, ensure you either have enough sick/vacation time accrued or you have signed up for Supplemental Disability Insurance otherwise you will essentially be out on leave paid only $800/month (taxed).

Don't expect great pay and if you want to get promoted, make sure you are visible when it is busy season. However, PwC walks the walk when it comes to flexibility and work life balance and the benefits are wonderful. There is no prescribed amount of sick time/days and sick time is for yourself OR caring for an ill family member. Also, sick time covers ANY doctor appointment (they do request that you try to get an early morning or late afternoon appointment, but no one has ever said anything when I can only get a mid-day appointment). I don't have children, women that do have children love the benefit of this policy as it allows them to care for family and still contribute.

Very ethical company. While working any retail job can be physically demanding and tougher than the average desk job, working for Whole Foods is very rewarding. They offer great health care and it is easy to use PTO and, if necessary, leaves of absences.

Avoid. Yes that salary is for a project specialist - not a clerk. Bonus was NOT $10,000; this site didn't even think to make just $5,000 as a bonus option. Now you tell me of any men at this rate? No in-line promotions for years; 2% cost of living increase for 5 years means 'average' rated individuals get 1.8%.

Love my experience with this amazing company but at the end of the day it's sad to say, just like any other well known company out there it's really all about knowing the right people to move up. On the other hand if you're a student like I was or have something else going on in life and is just doing this as part time, you will love it because they will work with pretty much any schedule.
