Abbott Nutrition

Marketing Director, Marketing

January 1970

Abbott is full of top talent and makes great products, but being a leader at this company means that work is always your #1 priority. There is no flexibility and leadership expects you are always available. It's a great place to work if you don't have a family.

    Commercial functions (marketing, sales) have no flexibility. Expectation you are in the office from 8am - 6pm. Are expected to be responsive to calls and emails around the clock, no exceptions.

The CEO is a my way or no way type person. He isn’t about promoting positive culture or financially rewarding the staff.

    Marketing department is flexible depending on the market you are in. Limited growth opportunities once you reach director level.

Naturopathica

Marketing Director, Marketing

January 1970

Within the beauty industry, this is one of the more friendly work environments. However, old school leadership holds on to antiquated ideas of women's lack of leadership potential, and takes a dim view of working mothers' ability to have work/life balance and take on more responsibility.

The environment is very collaborative and success results from engaging with others and asking for what you want supported by facts

Everyday Health

Marketing Director, Marketing

January 1970

After the recent acquisition of the company, women in leadership roles have been let go (including 3 out of the 5 department heads and all women 40+ as well which did not go unnoticed). I would say this was a great company for women but recent changes have indicated that change will be leading to a structure more similar to the parent company's current environment.

    Depends on the specific department you work in re: flexibility; some are better than others, but overall future direction appears that will change for the negative.

Scholastic Inc.

Marketing Director

January 1970

Overall good work-life balance. Depending on the department you are in there may be flexibility to work from home though some managers still require face time. Good maternity leave policy and generally a family focused company with lots of perks for kids too (holiday party, events, free books, etc)

    There is also an additional 8 weeks of part time transitional leave after your regular leave is over to help the employee/family adjust back into the workforce which I found incredibly helpful.

It has a great attitude to maternity, pays well but is a "old school club" environment. Lots of people who have been there too long in jobs they really can't do

It is the boys club familiar in software industry, but growing g fast and has a toe in HD and health, so there are more women opps than other software. All in all, good people, but can be old-school until they are reminded to stop.

Madam Choco-inc

ManpowerGroup Inc.

Marketing Director, Global Marketing

January 1970

The company is trying to hire more women in leadership roles. Today most of the business/market leads are male & over 55. This is ideal for young women who are looking for business development careers as they will be given opportunities to get on the fast track. However, anybody trying to move directly into a leadership role will have to come from the same or very similar industry.
