    Pros

    Great product portfolio & people. Great opportunities to progress (for now).

    Somewhat bureaucratic at times. Too much focus on gender, can seem sexist. Women get a few hours a month to attend lean in. Senior management determined to enforce gender balance by 2025.

    Don't implement sexist policies to achieve 50/50 gender balance.
