The company offers flexible schedule; your hours just have to add up at the end of the month. This is great for fitting in Dr's appointments or in case you need to leave early or come in late. Working from home or working remotely is totally fine for most positions; I knew many women who moved for their husband/partner's job and were able to continue working for RTI. However, if those women were not already in a senior position it was hard to be promoted when working remotely. Maternity leave is just cobbled together PTO and disability, but RTI is quite ok with women dropping down to part time after having kids, or transitioning back to full time slowly. Again, though, once someone drops down to part time it is hard to climb the ladder, as I'm sure it is in most places. And since family medical insurance is rather expensive, it's often not affordable to come back part time. Leadership is mostly men, and men seem to get ahead faster and get away with more. Men are rewarded for playing fast and loose while women are penalized for it. It is difficult to move up once you're in, so new people who negotiate harder are often paid far more than people who've been at the organization for several years. Only way to get significant a pay bump is to leave and come back. 401k contribution is pretty good (8%) but it takes 5 years to get fully vested.

There are many women working at RTI, a few in leadership positions, but there is no fully paid maternity leave. Instead, women must pay into a short term disability leave policy, which they must be enrolled in prior to conception, in order to get 6 weeks of 'paid' leave (80% pay). Because I wanted to take more than 6 weeks of leave after giving birth, I used nearly all of my saved PTO to take another 6 weeks. There are accommodations provided, at least in some buildings, for nursing mothers who need to pump, and there is a daycare subsidy, but only for one pre-determined facility and only for full time care. There seems to be some disparity in pay for men and women, but overall it is difficult to advance at RTI. Large salary increases are very rare, unless a person leaves and comes back, or leverages another offer. Men who contribute less than women seem to be accepted in ways that women wouldn't be.

Flexible working schedule is great, but it is common practice to be available on email or the telephone outside of core hours. Travel for work over the weekends is not accounted for in the work week.

Have things gotten better, worse, or stayed the same for women at RTI International in the past year?
