"Be careful. They have great health care for your family, but no maternity leave. If you just have 1 kid or space them out, the sick leave and time off are enough. But for women that just started or want multiple kids, there is not enough time to build up sick leave to cover a decent maternity leave. The benefits are super pricey when you have to take unpaid time off for maternity leave and have to cover benefits from out of pocket. Also, it is a state school. so they have incredible lawyers and know they can win in most court cases. So if you complain about harassment or discrimination, you have to be prepared for the fall-out.

"They have a 'flextime' policy that is completely inflexible. Unofficially they will tell you that they care about your family and you, but if something happens, you are at risk of being fired for 'past tardiness' or 'inconsistent work hours'. I never would have thought they would do that, but my boss was going through a family health issue and a personal issue and was fired. "
Did you take Maternity leave?
"Yes"
6 Weeks Paid | 0 Weeks Unpaid
"I took 6 weeks of sick leave/Vacation time- they don't actually have maternity leave or short term disability. I had 3 kids while at the UI. for the last one I took catastrophic leave and that was a paperwork and HR nightmare. I wish I would have just taken unpaid- I didn't have enough time to have 6 weeks and I had C Sections. "
