Rating your job is an important part of improving the workplace for women everywhere.

Not only does your rating help other women find companies that share their values and support women in their careers, it helps companies improve their policies and practices. Think of it like a performance review: Rating your job will help your company better understand its strengths and weaknesses and make better workplaces for women, and everyone.

Rating your job helps other women

First and foremost, rating your job helps other women find great workplaces. When a woman researches a prospective employer, your comments and ratings on the company’s leadership opportunities, family leave policy, paid time off policy, wellness initiatives, and more can help that woman make a more informed decision about where she applies.

For example, your anonymous rating (along with the anonymous ratings of other women at your company) can reveal a workplace that excels in providing management opportunities for women—or one that struggles.
