Go with your gut when it comes to your interview process. If the department feels like they don't respect your time or have excessive turnover - STAY AWAY!

    It varies across departments, some departments are very flexible, allowing for flexible time in the office - working from home, etc. Some departments require face time and also do not respect work/life balance.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    None taken

    I had "paid" 12 weeks of maternity leave, in that I used my own PTO to pay myself. It depleted my sick time, which can also be used towards years of service for retirement. You can borrow against yourself for PTO, and then also apply for shared leave (40 hours from people on campus), but unless you have time built up, or are willing to do this you will not be paid.

  • Family Friendly Aspects?

    Hours, Culture

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Promote more women into leadership positions

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It really depends upon the department you find yourself in. Some of them are WONDERFUL, and some really suck.

Female-dominated positions, such as administrative positions, are hired through temp agencies, etc. This limits pay, benefits, permanent status, often full-time status, for a position where usually on women apply/are hired.

Overall, the University gets good ratings for equality. It's important to look at the specific divisions.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    The likelihood that I will leave has more to do with the current US political situation than my job. If the US weren't imploding (or if I don't get the overseas job I am applying for), I'd be more likely to stay and fight it out.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Some of the divisions and departments appear to be better than others. Leadership is a crucial factor. Baseline benefits are equal between men and women.

Work culture varies greatly among departments at UNC. I found an exciting comraderie with some female faculty and staff.

    Be proactive in managing sexism.

There are a ton of women working here, but the curatorial staff is overwhelmingly male - they could do a lot better on equality at the curatorial level and in the higher levels of administration. It does seem to be a fairly flexible environment for maternity leave, which is great.
