Program Manager

Like most major companies, you are doing the work of 3 people. Negotiate up front your requirements for flexibility and work life balance and get it in writing.

    It's very inconsistent, lots of flexibility depends on department and even manager.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    8 paid / 8 unpaid

    You are allowed to take up to 16 weeks off but only 2 are fully paid (6 are FMLA). VUMC also pays monthly so many times when women would come back from maternity leave they already missed the pay cycle-- which means three months without a paycheck.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It depends on where you are in your life. This is not a supportive place for a working mothers with small children.

If you don't ask, you don't get. Negotiate your pay and fight for fair compensation, especially at your initial hiring. Promotions are hard work on the part of your one-up leader, so make a good case for yourself and present it, including goals to achieve the next level. Persist politely, bringing up your case for your promotion until it happens.
