Senior Program Officer

Administrative

January 1970

I would say to negotiate for raises, because these are not offered as they are in private companies or even non profit organizations. There are no bonuses either. I would put yourself on the map by doing a very good job and asking for equal compensation as your peers are earning, or whatever you think you are worth. Then, I would assess whether this is a place that will truly value your contributions and reward you accordingly (if not, find another place).

    The schedule is very inflexible unless you have achieved a certain level of certainty, which seems very unfair. Employees must report by 9:30am or there are penalties for lateness. This is fine for me, again (I do not have kids and do not plan to for the next 3-5 years), so this may be challenging for those with children or aging parents they take care of (things happen, and rigid workplace policies like this often disadvantage women).

    Maybe. It depends on where these women expected to be in the next five years. I took a job that was slightly below my level of experience, and there is a very clear ceiling here for the next 5 years (in which I currently work). In order to move up, short of one of our very few leaders leaving, I do not feel as though I would be considered for a promotion. Despite this being the government, there is little transparency about why certain colleagues are paid more than others, and there is little room for growth in this agency (I may be able to move to another NYC agency for a promotion, however). On the other hand, if a woman wanted to be here and doesn't mind not being promoted, there are generous leave policies and benefits. Also, there are generous comp time policies, which are nice. Again, I am looking for a more ambitious career path where I can demonstrate my worth and move up quickly, so generous time off and leave is not what I am looking for in my workplace right now.

Great opportunity, but limited flexibility depending on unit and assistant director.

Nepotism and favoritism is normal, promotions are not based on merit.

The management at the Appeals Division is all male although many attorneys are female. The management's favorites get more attention and better cases, and most of the favorites are men.

NYC does not currently offer unionized employees paid parental leave. You must use accrued vacation/sick time. Official policies can be strict and very un-family friendly (no remote work officially permitted, alternate work schedule difficult, cannot work split shift, cannot easily switch between full-time and part-time employment). Some policies, however, are very family-friendly (35 hour work week, 12 days sick leave/yr which roll over and generous vacation leave).

I've worked here for 5 years and there is a good mix of women of all ages. However if you are thinking of starting or having a family, it might be hard sometimes since during the financial plan times there are long hours and you might have to come in at weekends. Not the most ideal work life balance but the office does provide a great place to start your career.

    Maybe. It's hard to find a work life balance if you are in budget season which happens 4x a year
