I work at the business school- and the culture tends towards throwing one another under the bus- and this seems particularity acute among women in the staff. The female faculty are more closely bonded, but have much more significant challenges to face because of their gender.

    Flexibility depends on where you work within the university. Some groups are great, and others awful. There isn't a firm, university-wide enforced policy. Also- huge difference between staff and faculty.

    My office is pretty flexible, but I'm single without children so I haven't had to stretch policies. I've heard from other women with children/newborns that Columbia has a great policy for leave and flexible work arrangements, but that's at the discretion

    promotion, pay, and a voice in meetings; feel like female leadership is talked down to constantly and their opinions don't matter (which is something I've witnessed in these meetings).

Received some sexist feedback and found the men in this department did not treat women with respect.

This is a majority-female environment, so that can be good or bad, depending on how diverse you desire your company culture. Women are promoted as equally as men, however, it is expected that you are collaborative and congenial in order to receive recognition. It needs to be hard work with a smile in order to get ahead.

Women are definitely treated fairly in my field and given opportunities to advance. There is flexibility in the culture but not as much as one would hope (in theory some functions can work from home but its not looked upon highly).

There are a lot of women in senior leadership, with and without children. That helps get some flexibility.
