Depends on the department. Maybe I got lucky with my boss, but I feel very valued and equal in my workspace.

RAND seems to support women well. There are a large number of women in leadership positions and an acceptance of part time work schedules.

The pay and hours are pretty standard "work hard so at you at least have something nice on your resume." Men and women are treated just as poorly when you're at the bottom of the totem pole in a research lab, but generally women have fewer pay raises, if any.

I was only an RA/TA, so I can't say what it's like for female faculty. There were actually plenty of RAs and TAs in the mechanical engineering department when I was there, and in general the culture from the top down was positive and encouraging. Beware the undergraduates, of course; they can be real chauvinists.

    Maybe. It's a pretty standard university engineering department (read: super male), but there are some really excellent female role models here, too.
