Stay neutral on anything in public. Agree with whatever the Boy's Club is demanding - on the surface, at least. Most of the time, they don't check on it anyway, they just wanted assurances of compliance.

    I think it's the atmosphere and morale. It's heavy and dangerous to be on the wrong side of some people. It's not a team or even a group of people who like each other much.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I would recommend it if they were going in with their eyes open to the situation and how the game is played.

It’s an ok place to work but it’s hard for a woman to get equal pay. Hard to have a family

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

If you're planning to have family obligations, read your contract carefully regarding maternity 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.
