Low incomes, low promotions, but flexible and very stable as it is a public institution.

this is a typical academic setting with some flexibility but not the most progressive policies on maternity/paternity leave

    I have never had the flexibility I have now while at Ultimate. By understanding that employees are people too and have lives outside of work that can complement, not compete, with work responsibilities, you feel extremely supported in multiple ways.

    The culture is toxic and communication is poor. It is a bastion of baby boomers playing outmoded forms that do not serve to support their workers or give them equal voice or chances to improve culture.

    Maternity leave was left up to the individual work unit to cover their co-worker. There was no solid plan or review for temporary coverage in our department.

There are a lot more women there. However there is no leadership culture. So the women that get to the very top are often the bitchy, jealous bosses and sabotage other women. The current Chancellor has a very poor record of working with women.

Depending on your department, women and men are treated equally. There is also a great resource on campus for women - The Center for Women.

It's all about priorities. It's a great community. Work life balance is STELLAR in most positions. And the benefits provide my family with extra security. But I don't feel valued or compensated to the degree I deserve. Luckily, my partner makes enough that I can afford to make that compromise...for now.

    It's political. Your manager has a lot of discretion. Does he/she WANT to accommodate you? He/she can. But I've seen people get denied accommodation for what is clearly personal/political reasons while others with the exact request are approved.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 12 unpaid

    re: the 12 unpaid weeks: 6 were partially paid thru state disability, 4 were paid thru using my sick and vacation time, 2 were totally unpaid.

    Maybe. There are certainly systemic and bureaucratic issues, but there are also perks: great work life balance, great benefits, for example.
