Department Administrator

Academics

January 1970

There is no standard across the university. Many departments are great places to work where they allow flexing time and understand that parents need time off to take care of their kids but it isn't a guarantee.

    Maybe. Best benefit is the free tuition for yourself or child. If you are not taking advantage of this benefit, there really is no reason to work here.

As a graduate student, I've had a great experience at Rutgers, but experiences are very advisor-dependent.

    14 paid / unpaid

    This was when I was employed as a TA. When I was a fellow, I was allowed to take off as much time as I felt was reasonable (ended up being 6-8 weeks I believe).

  • Family Friendly Aspects?

    Hours, Culture, Policies

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Not much; it's a great place to work

  • Recommend to Women?

    Yes

    Treat employees as if they matter.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. The department, supervisor, funding, and more all play into a good work experience or not. Academia is very hierarchical.
