"Again, flexibility varies widely depending on the department, and specific supervisor. Some employees often work remotely, and have very flexible schedules, while others are held to rigid hours. "

"Penn is a massive, decentralized university, so department cultures vary widely. Depending on the specific department it may be more or less welcoming to women. "

"Women seem to be respected. The big separations seems to be between faculty and staff (or PhDs and non-PhDs). Not sure staff are respected as much as faculty."

"I've seen other women who have gone on maternity leave and the transition seems easy. My office is good about flex time and work-life balance, but we keep getting the message that this is not the case university-wide. I haven't gone on my maternity leave yet, but I had to write this review in order to read other's experiences."

"Women grad students and postdocs aren't necessarily treated any differently than men in my experience, but they are unequally represented among scientific faculty. My department is particularly abysmal, and can't seem to attract any early-career female scientists. Those at the top don't seem to realize it's because the whole department looks like one big nerdy boys club."

"I came here when my first child was about 18 months, and did not leave to have another for five years. As higher education institutions go, and my particular office, the bar is pretty high for productivity, ingenuity and stress, which I think contributed to our delayed growth of our family."
