Interestingly women do get different feed back than men. Somehow it’s okay to give a woman critical feed back on her personal performance, whereas men get more constructive feed back, often more focused on the job. This wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t that many of us take that feed back very personal too.
Male and female brains are different. It may well be that some of the career success of women is dependent on those differences. Perhaps your career success is build on your capabilities as a ‘big picture thinker’ or you should use that capability more to build a successful career.
There seems to be some sort of unwritten rule that it’s OK to give a woman career advice and personal feedback, whereas it’s unheard of to do the same to men. Recently, research was published that women tend to get personal critiques in their performance reviews, and men tend to get constructive feedback.
