This employer is run by a phenomenal woman that is understanding and dedicated to her staff; however, politics unfortunately dictate some of the meta-culture.

    It is extremely dependent on whether you are a school or Network employee, and on what team you are on. Some teams are extremely flexible. Some managers/executives know what is best for their teams and go out of their way to allow flexible schedules for their employees. However, from top down, flexibility is not encouraged.

PCS believes in equity and treats men and women the same. Gary does not use male privilege and he insures that all clients are respectful to everyone. He goes out of his way to make sure we all feel safe. I wish more men were like Gary.

    Amazing place to work. My car needed very expensive repairs and the owner loaned me his Mercedes for over one month until my care was fixed!!

    Flexibility really depends on your position and what is required to get the job done. Considering and comparative to most employers Bloomberg is far above the grade.

Good overall for women (and men) but wouldn't recommend jobs in the administrative professional field due to archaic technology and cumbersome processes and procedures.

It is a great place to work and they treat everyone equal. There are many support groups for women. Women are promoted just as much as men.

It really depends on your role, department, and boss. But be wary of taking a project hire position.

    I think it depends on your boss, really. I don't feel much flexibility in my role.
  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve my compensation

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I work specifically in Imagineering. There are many high executive women, but it very much still has a "boys' club" feel. Many jobs now are Project Hires, which means fewer benefits (I get seven days off per year -- sick and vacation combined) and no job security.
