There are different departments within the State of Indiana so it would depend upon where you are, but I think overall the PTO, paid holidays, and 37.5 hour work week are flexible.

Overt sexism in the workplace may be missing, but there is overall somewhat higher than industry standard dissatisfaction among women staff about performance reviews, which directly impacts pay increases and promotion opportunities. Lab operates with the same policies and procedures as MIT main campus.

This company is an HP Inc. subsidiary in Spain. And I would recommend all women to come because here there is flexibility for life balancing and no problem for getting maternity leave.

This place is excellent if you want to become a woman leader in tech. They are extremely supportive of taking time to submit abstracts to Calls for Proposals to go give talks in the tech community, which is my personal/professional goal. They also give great social media coverage of when I give talks or workshops, and promote when I write blogs. They also re-tweet my tweets about tech topics.

My supervisor is usually fine with flexing hours for anything - appointments, personal needs, family needs.

Include 1:1 with my manager to make an effort to develop in the direction I am working towards. The company should also work on improving process during the current time of rapid growth.

If you have never experienced sexism before or don't think it exists, you will experience it here.

Maybe. It depends on what department you work for, but it seems 95% of the company is the good old boys and quite sexist.
Change work culture. Students and women are treated as inferior.

The work is wonderful. Your coworkers are the best. You feel like you've found nirvana until you find out about the inflexibility with hours and vacation.

The opportunities for internal promotion is minimal- this is a very lateral organization. Directors do not actively vouch for members of their teams to receive title changes. Limited professional development opportunities. However, work culture is great and constantly surrounded by supportive, creative, intelligent, and driven colleagues.

There are a lot of parents that work here and supervisors and upper management that are parents or grandparents understand the need to spend time with family and are flexible when workload allows for time off. Compensation is fairly equal among men and women and based on time working with the Federal Governement and prior job qualifications, not based on gender.

I used my own earned vacation that I banked prior to having children. They do advance you sick leave or annual leave, but you will need to earn it back over-time. 12 weeks are given unpaid via MFLA. I did not take unpaid leave.
