"Working at AU's library was a great experience. The hours were reasonable, and if I had an academic commitment, my supervisors were always understanding and helped find someone to cover my shift. The culture was outstanding and respectful - it's the kind of place that makes you want to get up and go to work in the morning."

"This is a wonderful place for working parents, but it is of course dependent upon your direct supervisor and the culture/environment they promote. "

"I am speaking from an administrative staff perspective, not a faculty perspective. There are not a lot of opportunities for advancement. I've seen a lot of promotion opportunities created for individual men in the past few years, but I'm very sad to say that the only promotion opportunity I've seen created for a woman in my time there was due to her personal relationship with the dean. The environment is drastically different from department to department, but overall the culture of the university is family-friendly and flexible. There are a lot of women in support positions, and with the new President being a woman I hope that will start being true in the leadership as well. I just wish policies (mainly maternity and paternity leave) would follow suit."
