Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)
Review User Image

January 1970

Follow the current news on CUNY; right now it's in a serious crisis, and some parts are more directly affected than others. A turnaround seems inevitable sooner or later, since this institution is so essential to NYC, but that depends on politics in NYC and especially in Albany.

    It depends on your department/superviser, and on which unit (college or university unit) you work at. Working from home is not supported.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    16 paid / unpaid

    Good policy thanks to union bargaining (almost all employees are covered by a union). 8 weeks came out of accumulated sick leave. C-sections receive 16 weeks total, "normal" births receive 14 weeks total. Employees at the highest executive category are not covered by a union and only receive sick leave. Paternity leave was also recently introduced for unionized employees.

  • Work-Life Friendly Attributes:

    Hours, Culture

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Better paths for career development. Some benefits here (great health insurance) can serve as golden handcuffs if you face a dead end. New hires should seriously consider the 401k (non-pension option) to maximize flexibility in case the job isn't one they should stay in.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It really depends on the job and where you are in the institution.
