The culture is amazing and we have a strong network of female leaders in the company. Despite all the positive, we have to remember we still work in a very male dominated industry and need to continue to improve the perception of women in it. The company has room for improvement in regards to paternity leave; company offers 3 days paid paternity leave with the option to use vacation time to supplement.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Until recently I tried not to let it affect me and would recommend strong women with a passion to instill change, however, seeing the path of some junior male employees has left a very sour taste in my mouth. Not earning the promotions.

I have worked for this company for almost 5 years. I have stayed after having 1 child, and am pregnant with my second. I will most likely switch jobs when we move to new city in 11 months for a larger salary.
