Working for Penn State University as staff can be very different across campus. Penn State really should re-evaluate their policy for parental leave for staff (faculty get unlimited sick time that they can use, staff must use their accrued sick and vacation time). I've heard more and more stories about women deciding to not have a second child or trying to get their doctor to clear them to come back early at six weeks because Penn State does not give staff fully paid parental leave.

Other big ten universities are doing much better - https://ir.uiowa.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1132&context=honors_theses

Avoid it at all costs. Equality does not exist. Promotions are heavily weighted towards male emoylees with less experience.

    An employee can occasionally work from home.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 8 unpaid

    The paid weeks were not paid for by my company, it was 60% pay under short term disability.

    Maybe. Vestas is a good company to work for, but Id like to see more women promoted to leadership roles, and they need to create a competitive maternity/paternity leave policy for employees in order to retain women in the workforce.

It was very flexible to allow work-life balance. When you get off, no work follows you home. There were flexible hours just as long as you work 40 hours a week. Telecommuting is allowed.

Since there aren't many women, it seems more like a boys club. It is hard to be taken seriously and difficult to gain respect.

Look elsewhere. Unequal pay for exact same experience and education. Unequual pay and less opportunity for women with more experience than male counterparts. No respect for women as professionals. Women have no voice and are more likely to get fired. High employee turnover. Still the "good ole boys club"

Company policy is good but not groundbreaking. As a company with a female CEO we should have groundbreaking maternity leave and we do not. The culture is generally great. I absolutely love my job and what I do. One must be aware however that it is still a male dominated field and without malice intent men get more pay and are more likely to be promoted.
