Play everything close to your vest, be discreet. These people are not your friends. They are colleagues and when push comes to shove, they will throw you under the bus. The key to advancement is to be shrewd and play their game.

    It really depends on what school/unit you work for. I worked in OAD where there was no flexibility. There are policies in place for work/life balance and flex time but it's completely at the discretion of your ED or unit. You have to fight for it almost at the point of abandoning any promotion/advancement opportunities.

    Feedback is often gendered, I have been told that I am too emotional, reactive, and that I talk too much in meetings. In the beginning, I took this advice seriously and got a degree and professional development- the feedback never changed and they gave it to other women as well.

    some departments very flexible, others less so. Difficult to switch roles to get yourself into a more flexible arrangement, if you are looking for it.

    Maternity leave has now been improved, up to 16 weeks paid.

    Crowe launched a Where to Work strategy a couple years ago that really changed the workday dynamic in a positive way. While each individual may approach it a little differently, the goal is to allow people to work wherever is best for them and they can be most productive - whether that's in an office, at home, a coffee shop or a client location.
