the health care benefits and day care flexible spending plan are great

Depending on your supervisor they can be very flexible, but sometimes changing your hours or taking time off can be a pain if your supervisor is not willing to compromise.
It is very hard to advance your career if you enter as an Admin Assistant. You may need to have to go to a different company to get out of the admin field. If you are a good admin, the department won't want you to leave.
it was okay to work there but i would not do it again
Due to it being a school, there are a lot of paid holidays. Also, you start out with 3 weeks vacation, 12 sick days and 2 personal days a year.

There are lot of engineers here which also include women.
