assistant director Job Reviews
Women who are assistant directors have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.5, 100% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $50k-$80k.
I would encourage anyone working there to advocate for paid family leave, which is an important issue and most certainly should be offered in the non-profit sector considering the trade-off in compensation levels.
Although it varies from department to department, most of the university is committed to its social justice roots and wants its employees to feel challenged and appreciated. One thing is that the University is going through so many changes and high-level staff shakeups. This could go either way, but it's a good time to seize opportunity.
In my experiences, the firm is supportive of helping create a work/life balance but when you're expected to be "on," you have to be all in.
I've worked first at Penguin and now at PRH for close to 7 years. It's a relatively family-friendly company. They offer solid healthcare and leave benefits, and they were quick to recognize domestic partners as beneficiaries years before marriage equality. I think opportunities for advancement vary depending on the area of the business.
I've worked here for 12 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly and there is a strong initiative to promote women and diverse candidates. However, just like most organizations, the intentions, marketing and effort is there but there is still a lot of work to do.
In fundraising and development, it's a heavily female organization. I don't think about equality between men and women because it's so well balanced, if not favoring women a little. The maternity leave benefits are the best of anywhere I've ever worked and the University setting is a non-competitive atmosphere where work ends around 5pm. However, the flexibility in work schedule is lacking, at least in some departments, and the variable nature of it all seems unfair. I wish there were more standard policies for flexible work.
