Assistant Director

Great flexibility and internal support of work-life balance. The only downside was paid maternity leave is very minimal, for those of my colleagues who had children while I was there. However, great women in leadership and overall I was given the flexibility to do whatever I needed to do to make my job and life work together. So, I think that has outweighed the negatives for many people.

Extremely unprofessional. Benefits and flexibility are good but mask a very dark culture.

Flex and support and access to amazing resources is great- I find we pay men more than women

Your individual director will set the tone for your day to day, but the administration is not at all in tune with gender diversity. One woman very high in leadership is very actively sexist against other women.

    While there are some policies that are supportive, they apply only to hourly staff; there is no maternity or parental leave whatsoever, I had to use sick time for maternity leave.

More women from diverse backgrounds in leadership roles would do wonders for the organization in helping it come into the 21st century as well as inspire more innovation.

    It is dependent on your department and supervisor. I have worked in one unit that was not very flexible but in my current role, the management is much more flexible and gives us the resources to balance our work.

Good place to be, in general. however, be sure to know specifics about your direct supervisor, as they have a lot of leverage and power to change the culture.

    Flexibility and family-friendly culture is dependent on the specific department/supervisor. There are limited centralized policies in place, that I am aware of. If there are centralized policies, maybe they need to be more readily advertised?

    I was able to use sick and vacation leave to be paid. however, I only had enough leave because I have been working here for many years. If I didn't have enough leave stashed away, I would have been unpaid for maternity leave. This may have changed since I had a baby, though.

    Even though flex scheduling policies are in place, it depends on the function of your position and how your supervisor or the leader of your unit/department decides to implement them. Overall, culture is leaning into work-life balance, but it is not a given in all circumstances.

I would encourage anyone working there to advocate for paid family leave, which is an important issue and most certainly should be offered in the non-profit sector considering the trade-off in compensation levels.

Brandeis University

Assistant Director

January 1970

Although it varies from department to department, most of the university is committed to its social justice roots and wants its employees to feel challenged and appreciated. One thing is that the University is going through so many changes and high-level staff shakeups. This could go either way, but it's a good time to seize opportunity.
