"New York City Fire Department review They provide equal opportunities. However, the culture is very male dominated and it can be difficult to get others to embrace female styles of working habits. But it’s possible. The culture is centered around the idea that more work, longer hours, is the path to better compensation and advancement opportunities."

"Keep in mind that for some levels you have to take a test to move up. For other spots, after you send in your resume, you sometimes have to wait patiently for years before you are moved up. "

"Make sure you talk to your union to know your benefits."
"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)."
"Nepotism and favoritism is normal, promotions are not based on merit. "
