healthcare Job Reviews
Women who work in healthcare departments have an overall job satisfaction level of 2.6, 33.3% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $50k-$80k.
No paid maternity leave but overall flexible for family life. Often feel 2nd to men or belittled (think MDs, surgeons, etc). Pay is not great and I have 2 additional part-time jobs.
Some VAs have very few women in leadership positions. Men are more easily promoted.
You are expected to work overtime and a flexible schedule is not an option.
Because it is not a union, really terrible staffing ratios.
Work only for the money, your caring and abilities will be punished.
USAID is still an old boy's club. It can be a great place to work for a lot of reasons, but you need to go into it aware - be prepared for sexism.
Incredible benefits. Insurance coverage is the best. The sick and vacation leave are a huge benefit to working here- 25 days of vacation, 13 days of sick leave plus holidays.
I don't think that you have to be a man to get ahead there, but you have to find a leader who is friendly to families. The corporate policies are extremely family friendly, and the tax and audit practices have very predictable hours and busy times. In consulting, partners have a lot of leeway to run their practices as they see fit. If you're going to be there in a consulting role, each industry and functional practice has different expectations about travel and hours, and you need to find a group that suits your family's needs.
Edelman is pretty fair on the front end in how women are treated, but I suspect unequal pay, especially as the ranks narrow towards senior leadership.
Your ability to schedule flex time or shifted work hours greatly depends on your studio manager; some are very supportive of new parents, some are horrible. Part time is almost non-existent.
