Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women

Negotiate for a bigger salary up front because it's very challenging to get any kind of raise once you're in the job; most people get substantial raises by moving to a higher ranked position within the university. Also, when you start they offer to let you sign up for their supplemental disability insurance without having to apply -- DO IT. I did not and regret it. This is the thing that actually gives you some $$ during maternity leave (because pregnancy is considered a "disability"). The UC doesn't pay anything! All you get is the FMLA 12 weeks of unpaid leave. You have to make up the 12 weeks somehow out of your sick/vacation/disability pay. You have to pay for the disability insurance, but to my mind, it's worth it.
The environment is pretty friendly and open here, and your work speaks louder than anything else. Your level of happiness is likely to depend more on innate stesses of the job (whether you are tenure-track or not), than on dealing with sexism. Overall, a good environment to foster learning.

I worked here for a little over a year. Women make up the majority of the non-academic staff and the discrepancy in pay between the two groups is thoroughly demoralizing and increasing every year. There's a gender and class issue that makes this place absolutely depressing.
