Our leadership team is mostly men, but they are generally well intentioned. We still need more women in leadership positions though!

I think you have to be a pretty feisty person to work in this environment, get really good at negotiating, develop a hard shell, and fight everyday to maintain your position and your career track. There is no one helping you, or anyone.

The values are genuine and the leadership really cares about people and making the world a better place. Diversity and Inclusion are core, with decades of commitment to women, LGBT, and people of color.

The company has come a long way in the 2+ years I've been there. The leadership is walking the talk with clear values, transparency, and a focus on diverse hiring and promotions.

    Much more flexibility than other tech companies I've worked for; definitely less focused on perceptions vs. outcomes.

Edelman

For a large company, we behave like a small family run business in the best and worst ways. We’ve grown quickly and haven’t kept pace with the changing world of work. Hours can be rigid, presenteeism prevails, and policies worldwide are not family friendly nor in line with the best on offer from other agencies to say nothing of our competitors.

    It is far below our peer group in most countries where the firm operates. For a business that is 68% female, this is simply not good enough. Talent retention post parental leave is very poor.

Great if you want a job, but not promotion. Managers are not well trained, and often very bad at running programs or managing. Faculty are not natural leaders and make difficult and inexperienced managers.

    All depends on your manager. Facetime is very important.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    HR didn't process it correctly, the insurance I paid for only covered the first 6 weeks - not 12. None of this came to life until I began maternity leave. I was assured it covered 12 weeks by HR. THey now cover 6 weeks paid, and I would encourage you to double check if the insurance REALLY covers the next 6 weeks.
  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Some managers respect family flexibility, many do not.

Don’t expect substantive feedback through the career development process. You will have to do this informally, and many women don’t connect with influential mentors.

    Salaried professionals up to Manager level can work from home one day a week and generally have work-free weekends and vacations. Directors and above may not be able to disconnect more than a day or two depending on role.

    I’ve never taken it but female friends at work have complained about HR’s handing of the paperwork and process. I think it’s 6 weeks short term disability + FMLA (unpaid up to 12 weeks in addition to the 6). Some women have tried to plan delivery in Oct to take FMLA in 2 calendar yrs

    For every hour spent with a consultant, spend an hour with mid-senior management at your own firm.

In order to get the full maternity benefit (it's good), you have to have worked at NU for 4 years first. It's worth the wait, but it's quite a commitment and requires advanced family planning.

    Flexibility likely depends on the position. Roles that are faculty facing don't allow much flexibility.
