Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)
Education Program Specialist
Be clear about where you are in your life stage and what office you'll be working for in choosing whether this is a good fit. Each office within the Department has a different culture; some grind hard and expect non-stop hours, others are more balanced. Some are staffed mostly by political appointees and (young) staffers who approach work as a sprint, others have more career staff who take a marathon/long-term approach.
Job Satisfaction Level
Are Women and Men Treated Equally?
Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)
6 paid / 6 unpaid
Leave was "paid" but had to use sick or vacation (annual) leave, no separate pool for maternity leave.
Family Friendly Aspects?
One Thing Employer Could Improve
Provide additional opportunities to grow into other jobs within the organization. Allow for more part-time and job sharing positions.
Recommend to Women?
Maybe. Depends on the supervisor and office- have experienced discrimination as a woman and parent but have also experienced a supportive environment.
