UC Berkeley can be great place to work, since there is an expectation for work-life balance and many paths to build a career.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 6 unpaid

    The compensation was only a small percentage of my usual salary, and I had to purchase additional supplemental disability insurance to get more compensation. Additionally, I was required to use up to 20 sick/vacation days before I could use the paid leave option. Finally, the process for getting leave set up was complicated and even after I completed everything, I received less compensation than was explained to me.

  • Are Women and Men Treated Equally?

    Yes

  • Family Friendly Aspects

    Hours, Culture

  • Recommend to Women?

    It depends greatly on the position. There are still huge problems with gender equality issues for tender track positions and faculty politics. However, as a staff member, the policies are reasonable.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve my benefits (e.g. medical, maternity)
