"I loved my experience at Harvard Business School and felt I had many opportunities to grow as a professional through promotions and new opportunities. My key driver in leaving was that I wanted to focus more on using the skills I had learned in one particular area of my job at HBS and entrepreneurship allowed me to do that. Also, the commute was brutal. In a student services facing role, I had some flexibility in working two days a week remotely and a 8-4 schedule, but with the commute that would not have worked long term for my family needs."

"HBS actively works at diverse hiring. Managers reach across the hierarchy to get input from workers. Accommodations and flex work is available to everyone. HBS even has a system in place to accommodate MBA students that are pregnant or the parents of young children."

"There are obviously lots of different positions at HBS, some more women-friendly than others. That said, tenure track professorships are extremely challenging. "

"In development, which is has way more women than men, people are really nice but you want to make sure to not get too far into the fray because there's definitely a mean-girl current. As long as you're nice to everyone and don't get too involved, you'll be fine."
"Benefits are overall solid, but there's little flexibility with work arrangements."
"In fundraising and development, it's a heavily female organization. I don't think about equality between men and women because it's so well balanced, if not favoring women a little. The maternity leave benefits are the best of anywhere I've ever worked and the University setting is a non-competitive atmosphere where work ends around 5pm. However, the flexibility in work schedule is lacking, at least in some departments, and the variable nature of it all seems unfair. I wish there were more standard policies for flexible work."
