Being a federal employee provides job security. However limited benefits and unsatisfactory pay rate.

Ask for more when first getting hired; it will affect all future salary negotiations.

The government is a good place for work-life balance. However, it can be frustrating to deal with a lot of bureaucracy. Also, there is no paid parental leave. Getting FMLA leave is not a problem.

    Maybe. The issues with this employer are not based on gender - rather, there is a lot of frustrating bureacracy

No paid maternity leave. Sexual harassment may not be dealt with in a way you consider approptiate. Good female role models in leadership positions. Good flexibility when needed and possible.

January 1970

Women are treated just as well as men and have every opportunity to advance here in terms of how they are viewed, promoted, and treated. The work itself is endlessly demanding, though, and hard to walk away from even if you have vacation to take. The pay is low relative to other opportunities. There is no paid maternity leave, so women end up using years' worth of vacation and sick time to have babies and never take true sick days or vacation. If you love the work and are okay with close to private-sector hours without private-sector pay, this is an unbelievable jobs for support in your growth and acquiring skills. But it is difficult to manage the workload with young children.

    Maybe. Interesting and important work, great (and supportive!) people, and women are treated just as well as men. The only problem is constant, high-stress work and low pay that make raising children difficult.

This is a terrific place for a new attorney to gain litigation skills, build confidence, and develop relationships to help continue to succeed. Gender really doesn't matter here.
