As a woman with 15 years experience in the corporate construction world, I've sat back and watched much younger people with less than 5 years experience, advance in the company because, they keep their business opinions to themselves and tell the corporate execs, what they want to hear! Is this the only way to advance in corporate America? Does experience and professional knowledge....not to mention loyalty...mean absolutely nothing in the corporate world? Especially, if your an opinionated woman? Curious to hear comments on this, as I'm at a loss! Is this what we've become? Sugar-coated liars, rather than truthful, knowledgeable professionals, who are free to express their opinions in order to better the outcome of the company as a whole ? Years of personal experience within the same corporate construction industry, has proven that you will only advance as a woman, if you are seen but only heard if your opinion is given to you and approved by management executives, in advance! Very sad!
