Graduate Instructor, Research & Development

Lots of red tape. Major diversity issues throughout the university culture, including deeply rooted issues re: race, and mixed/polarized handling of transgender issues (i.e., bathroom policies bay by building/department, neutral initiatives received negative feedback).

    None taken

    Graduate students (and PhD instructors/teaching assistants) offered no leave, need to fight for feeding room space, and if choose unpaid maternity leave during fall semester, you will nor be enrolled in that entire year's healthcare policy (so many try for spring/summer babies)

How good it is for women depends entirely on the departments. Some are horrible for women (philosophy), some are great (pretty much any humanities but philosophy).

    It's academia. It's about as flexible as it gets.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Nothing. I'm out.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I don't recommend grad school to anybody, and I worked here as a graduate student. It's pure exploitation no matter where you go. But no more so for women than men. And if you're tenure-track, I guess it's fine.
