The Belfast office is certainly more female-dominated than other athena offices. I've found that it's a great place for women, with a stron Women's Leadership Forum group and countless professional development opportunities. Most departments have flexible work from home policies, as well, which can vary depending on tenure/cohort as well as position.
I have worked here for over four years. I feel women are treated fairly, but I am unsure of pay equality as this is not discussed. Many female managers, senior managers and a few female VPs and Senior VPs. I feel with hard work I will be able to progress with my career as I wish.
Athena health offers an extremely flexible schedule, that easily accommodates being a mother after going back to work. There are lots of other parents working here, even among the recent grads. I feel my supervisors are empathetic and relatable as parents. Also, the new maternity policy is 3 months paid leave!
