clinical pharmacy Job Reviews
Like I said, I do feel like women are judged for becoming pregnant and taking leave. The women I have met in higher-up management positions do not have children, and I think that can speak volumes. Of course, it may be of their own choosing. Mothers may not want high-stress management positions. Upon hire, I was unsure who I would be answering to, and one guy that I thought was one of my bosses mentioned how that because our clinic was all-women, we might need to pass out "chocolate and Xanax." I thought this was very offensive, but he is not a person I'd respect anyways, and I feel like if I brought it to someone's attention, he would be properly disciplined. However, there is no way to address it without several knowing who brought it up, and I'm afraid I would be negatively impacted. It's easier just to let it go, especially because I found out he really does not have much involvement in the management of my job.

Are Women and Men Treated Equally?
Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)
Recommend to Women?
Maybe. I think pharmacists have support from management, but the nurse practitioner I work with does NOT have good support. It depends on your department. The only reason I say men and women are not treated equally is because my hiring manager mentioned several times upon my hire about how some of his pharmacists taking maternity leave made his job harder. He said "don't do that to me, yet!" He is a kind person, but this made me feel guilty about getting pregnant.
