Why women leave tech: It’s the culture, not because ‘math is hard’
Another article that my experience in tech proves out. Apparently, I am too stubborn to quit though.

I think the dropout rate has much more to do with the flexibility of the job (or lack thereof) than a male-dominated culture. My experience is that there’s less gender discrimination in tech (if you’re competent, you can have purple antennae for all anyone cares) than many other professions. But the inflexibility of many tech jobs (especially if you’re on call) leads many women to seek other alternatives.
Inflexible schedules and being on call 365/7/24 gets very old very fast. I also think the management creates the culture and fosters supportive environment or not. I would say more but prefer not to in this venue.
