I'd say exactly what I said above. Come help make change. This place has a lot of potential.

    I'm lucky to have a lot of flexibility where I am within the organization.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    12 paid / unpaid

    Making us spend sick and vacation time to pay for maternity leave is low. I know it's compliant with the law. Higher ed in particular should do a LOT better.

  • Family Friendly Aspects?

    Hours, Culture

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Take complaints seriously. Increase transparency by a lot. Improve women's compensation.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. We need more women speaking up, not fewer women, to fix the problems. I don't think it's much different than most other places. I think I'd recommend it, as long as you know what you're walking into and are ready to advocate for yourself from the hiring process forward.

There are a lot of academics. They are sometimes less supportive of females but do take them seriously once you've proven yourself.

I used 8 weeks of sick time and 4 weeks of vacation so that my maternity leave was paid. The university is looking at how to offer more childcare because the university center only has spots for about 30 children.
