    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Mace part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Rich Diversity of work placements Recognition of talent Exciting work opportunities overseas with high calibre clients Good ratio of women to men in managerial roles against sector average Good career path into different sectors. A great company for the young.

    Cons

    Disappointing gender pay gap nearly 40% compared to 18% UK average. There are lots of women managers paid pittance - irony somewhere in this ! Motherhood penalty is very real in this company, as probably the sector. Highly qualified women are looking elsewhere. Flexible in a limited sense. Need to overhaul the greying middle age directors and let some fresh thinking in.
