"Working for Penn State University as staff can be very different across campus. Penn State really should re-evaluate their policy for parental leave for staff (faculty get unlimited sick time that they can use, staff must use their accrued sick and vacation time). I've heard more and more stories about women deciding to not have a second child or trying to get their doctor to clear them to come back early at six weeks because Penn State does not give staff fully paid parental leave."

"I was able to save up vacation and sick time so I could still be paid for my leave. I ran out after 8 weeks and couldn't afford to take unpaid time off, so I went back to work when the vacation/sick time ran out. Since I had to zero out my time, it's been really stressful when the inevitable happens and I need to take time off if my baby gets sick or if my husband has to go out of town on days when he is usually home with the baby."

"Penn State is a great place for women to work, overall. I have seen more women in leadership positions here than I have at most universities. But the multi-campus system can be difficult to navigate, and opportunities for internal advancement do not exist at all locations."

"Take advantage of the tuition reimbursement benefit ASAP, don't expect to go anywhere as far as growing in the company. Also the culture is horrendous. Unfortunately, a great deal of workplace bullying, rank and file. "
