Make sure to investigate who you're working for. Most managers and teams are supportive and enthusiastic. Some are not.

    Flexibility is lower at entry level, and there are some paths where moving up is not an option.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Overall, Northwestern is a good- and equal- workplace. Certain teams and/or managers still more likely to listen to men.

Carefully choose advisor and identify support network. Talk with other students before joining lab.

The department definitely needs more women professors, but in my time here I didn't ever feel like I was discriminated against. The University as a whole is pretty good about promoting women-centered events and seminars as well through the Women's Center.

There are a lot of women in higher up administrative positions, but on the whole women are more scarce among the faculty. Most of the business offices are made up of women, but men still seem to occupy the positions of power.

Women are actually occupying many of the higher level positions here. However, women do not make as much money as men and you really need to push very hard during the negotiation stage. There is always more money available than they want you to believe. Also, maternity leave is not frowned upon here and people cover for you as much as possible when you're out.

I been working here for 2 years now and since my first day I really seen a change through out the time being all around the building work here and there it's a tough time to get use to because this company has like so many buildings for one huge campus and actually even though I'm at work every day I been doing this field of work for like 20 years I feel that it's my time to start over with a totally different type of work force.
