It has been inferred that educated women are entering the corporate sector. Women are seen to be present at all newlinethe levels. However, more number of women are seen at the low and middle level managerial positions and less number of women are found at the senior and top management level. Women are seen to be newlinehaving role conflict across at the levels. However, more number of married women were seen to be having role conflict as they have more responsibilities. Most of women were found to be dissatisfied with their jobs. They had lot of problems in changing their jobs. Biasness is seen at the time of recruitment, promotion and in wages newlinewhere preference is given to men.
