Senior Program Manager, Human Resources

January 1970

AT&T values all voices and supports equality across the board. I feel extremely proud to be part of an organization that not only supports me as a professional female and all of my work endeavors, but as a woman/parent/wife/caregiver/friend in my personal life as well.

Be very judicious in what team you seek out, do your research, and be prepared to stand up and have a voice.

    My department tolerates my need for a flexible schedule, but I don't think it's overall the feeling at the company to allow for flexibility for working parents.

Move around as often as possible and definitely get into the cloud side of the business. Pay attention to rumors and keep your skills relevant.

    I did not want o leave, I was quite happy but I was the result of an acquisition and Oracle eliminated the products I supported. I was a result of a reduction in force.

It is not as easy to break into the union side from a management position since there is a perception that the union side is less polished (polished was a union supervisors word in response to my interest in a position on her team).

There is lots of support for families at Microsoft. As with many large corporations, the support of women and promotion to leadership varies by group. Some managers and teams really get it and have made changes. Others have not. Yet. I believe Satya Nadella is working hard to make necessary changes.

    We need to promote more women into leadership, but we also need more unconscious bias training for male managers who lead mixed teams to make sure women in engineering and program management roles feel supported.

Lady Office

Microsoft

Senior Program Manager, Office

January 1970

I've worked here for 11 years. When I started, I worked for a woman who was formerly the head of a very big group. Looking up in the organization, I saw a few women who were up the management chain (though none other than my boss in my own management chain). Now, there are far fewer, and it isn't clear as to why. On the positive side, the lack of women in leadership has been acknowledged by the top people in my organization, and there is a lot of thought going into what to do and how to change the organization's management from a 40-something-wife-at-home-white boys club like it is now. As for maternity leave, I have found both men and women (and especially men) to be supportive of parental leave. In fact, I've seen male managers be more supportive of taking the full leave (20 weeks) than women managers.

It is extremely competitive with quarterly "Connects" where you share what you did with the value to the company and what you could have done differently. Politics at higher levels - there is an "old boys club" that exists and is very active.

Madam of Mystery

Microsoft

Senior Program Manager

January 1970

I've worked at the company for 8 years. Microsoft has a wealth of resources for women including social groups and incredible health and child care benefits. The flexibility provided to me to work at varying hours, work from home, etc. is a differentiator for me and allows me to have better work/life balance.
