In my experiences, the firm is supportive of helping create a work/life balance but when you're expected to be "on," you have to be all in.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. On the one hand, I think the firm offers flexibility and does care about work/life balance. I was able to take an extended unpaid maternity leave, which is something that I will always be grateful for. On the other hand, as a new mom returning to work, I do feel like you're just expected to dive back in head first and am not sure that the transition is all that supportive.

I've worked first at Penguin and now at PRH for close to 7 years. It's a relatively family-friendly company. They offer solid healthcare and leave benefits, and they were quick to recognize domestic partners as beneficiaries years before marriage equality. I think opportunities for advancement vary depending on the area of the business.

Madam Recruiter of all things go

EY

Assistant Director

January 1970

I've worked here for 12 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly and there is a strong initiative to promote women and diverse candidates. However, just like most organizations, the intentions, marketing and effort is there but there is still a lot of work to do.

Harvard Business School

Assistant Director, External Relations

In fundraising and development, it's a heavily female organization. I don't think about equality between men and women because it's so well balanced, if not favoring women a little. The maternity leave benefits are the best of anywhere I've ever worked and the University setting is a non-competitive atmosphere where work ends around 5pm. However, the flexibility in work schedule is lacking, at least in some departments, and the variable nature of it all seems unfair. I wish there were more standard policies for flexible work.
