Many employees are women with either extremely strong or weak personalities which at times has resulted in a tense working environment with work "bullies" and "victims".

Be careful of taking a professor position here, especially if you have a professional spouse as this institute makes little effort to retain faculty.

    Pretty flexible in terms of time off and parental leave policies.

    A big issue in academia is the hiring of two spouses (two-body problem). This is a huge issue at this institute and many professors have left because this employer will not acknowledge this two-body issue.

Stay away. This company has great benefits but is not at all family-friendly. There is little potential for promotion or a salary on par with male colleagues unless you enage in nepotism. This employer is good at undervaluing it's staff and letting their talents go to waste.

    Academic Advising is the worst in terms of flexibility. Even though this is a completely online university and working remotely is sometimes possible, this department has described advising as an in office position. Student Support and Registrar have the most flexible working options. The overall culture is that taking time off for family is frowned upon and discouraged. Business needs of the company are the most important priority. If you have a manager who favors you, some level of flexibility is possible.

    Leadership should support women when promoting them into leadership positions rather than using them as lightning rods for senior males.

Do not expect a work-life balance. The concept is totally foreign.

    Improve my benefits (e.g. medical, maternity)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If you are in need of employment, this is fine for a stop-gap measure. Just don't expect much and leave as soon as you are able.
