In order to create and maintain work-life balance here, you will need to make it look like you are giving your all while carefully and quietly ensuring that you don't give your soul and your health as well.

    Depending on your department, and as long as your needs to not reach the attention of the upper administration, you might be able to work something out.

    Though I did not, I was surprised to learn from a colleague that she was forced to take a 10% cut in pay when she had her baby, even though she was taking calls from students while in the hospital and was even grading papers just hours after the birth. The director of human resources told her that the paycut was required due to the fact that they believed she could not possibly work at 100%.
  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. There are very good people working here, and that camaraderie is worth a lot. I think you just need to be aware and very careful. The women who find it easiest to move upward here are those who either do not rock the boat or who have a husband in a respected position.

Not a great place to work for men or women if a physician. Less leadership opportunities for women

There is a remarkable lack of consistency of family-friendly policies across the university, and it is dependent on what kind of manager you happen to get. The maternity and paternity leave policies are progressive IF IT WERE STILL 1965!!!!!

Horrendous, archaic maternity/family leave policies. people come back 4 weeks after having children. No day care, no emergency child care, no assistance with child care for required work travel, non-family friendly hours. However you can often arrange "under the table" flexibility-- if you have tenure.

some departments (for faculty) are very family friendly; there are many successful women here who support one another

    Maybe. it depends on the school/college with the university, and on what kind of family you're creating (as of now, no paid leave unless you birth the baby yourself)

University of Virginia

Associate Professor, Politics and Women, Gender & Sexuality

January 1970

Women in many departments at the university are in the minority with all the problems associated with that status. Recently the university conducted a salary equity analysis and annual salaries were adjusted a bit. We currently have an NSF Advance grant to address diversity and discrimination issues related to gender in the STEM and SBE fields. Progress is slow. Thankfully, the current dean of the College, the Provost and President recognize the importance of these issues, so there is support from the top for change. I co-authored an article about how some of the women in my department at UVa advocated for change and the outcomes of that work, published in a 2015 article in PS: Politics & Society.

They just completed a 5-year effort to level the playing field by adopting clear, uniform metrics that apply equally to everyone. Except that there is no repercussions if your unit ignores the new rules and metrics. I have seen administrators shrug and say "we can't make them do it", which is effectively saying "we can't make them treat women the same as men."

Lady Tenured Prof

Purdue University

Associate Professor

January 1970

This is my 8th year working here in engineering, and I'm about to have my second kid, now post-tenure. The policies around family leave are aligned with other big-10 schools, but that does not mean they are good. However, Purdue is an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, and that can help you manage your worklife to be more sustainable.

    Maybe. It isn't all that different than other universities, I think. But that doesn't mean it is always a great experience, especially for academic parents.
