The unit director has a lot of power to make life easier or harder for individuals. Some groups have more women in the office; others have more men. Improvements for women are not generally publicly discussed by the leadership.

    OSU is such a large campus that you'll find a lot of variability in the culture.

    Paid weeks were accrued over time as sick and annual leave. FMLA provides for 12 unpaid weeks, but the employer will only pay you for time accrued.

The benefits are some of the best I ever had, medical, dental and leave. You can use sick leave (actual honest to goodness sick leave, not all inclusive "personal leave" to take your kids to doctor's appointments. I pay less for medical and dental premiums and have much better coverage.

    It seems to really come down to your department's head, if you're lucky, you're lucky and if not you're restricted. My supervisor is incredibly flexible when it comes to work hours, working from home, and understanding that you need time off on occasion to get a child to an appointment, meet with teachers etc.

I see a good mix of men and women in all types of roles, which is impressive since this is IT. I know that maternity leave is non-existent, and the company doesn't give regular raises or bonuses is most cases, so there are definitely reasons to consider a company with better long-term benefits in that way. The health plan selections are actually pretty good, you can choose from 4 providers and 5 or so tiers of coverage, depending on your budget and/or needs. I have experienced only minor sexism, in the form of condescension and maybe unwanted flirting, but never from management. Most of my coworkers consider this job a paycheck until a better offer comes along, since the company doesn't seem to care much about talent retention.

    Maybe. I'm not sure I'd recommend it to anyone, just because the company doesn't make employees a priority. But a job is a job, so if this is the best option salary-wise, there's nothing wrong with working here.

Company has good medical/dental benefits and excellent 401K. Also offers medical benefits for same sex couples. Excellent tuition reimbursement and vacation package. Most positions have the option to work from home a few days during the week. Most management is open to helping you advance within the organization.
