Terex

Buyer

January 1970

Terex is definitely making strides to improve work life balance. They have recently implemented paid maternity leave and up to 2 weeks of pay to take care of a family member when on FMLA. They also just started a pilot program for flexible work schedules and work from home options.

Catty and clicky. Some female leaders will not recognize your talent or help you grow professionally. Everyone else will look the other way if you are mistreated.

Claire's

Buyer, Jewelry

January 1970

It is a woman dominated culture here so that is nice for career opportunities (specifically within buying), however there is no flex time, and often cannot keep up with the workload during office hours. I often take work home, work late, come in early.

    Maybe. The current workload is too much, but there are advancement opportunities for women as they make up the majority of the co.
