Their is an intellectual hierarchy here and an emphasis on highest education qualification as the basis for qualification for positions and promotions.

I only worked here part-time, so I cannot comment much about flexibility and policies. However, I enjoyed my time here very much.

I was a graduate research assistant in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology department. The lab I worked for was a great place to work as a woman as my boss was very understanding.

I was a graduate student researcher and so don't really know what it would be like for a regular employee.

Lady turnofthekey

Virginia Tech

Graduate Research Assistant, Industrial and Systems Engineering

January 1970

I completed a two-year Master's degree with a research assistantship throughout. There are quite a few women in administrative roles and as students. There are also several women in faculty, but women are disproportionately adjunct faculty rather than tenure-track. It seemed like students were treated fairly, but that it would be tough to pursue a PhD or a tenure position in the department.

    Maybe. A lot of women as graduate students, but few women faculty members and many of them are adjuncts.

There are a ton of women working here, but the curatorial staff is overwhelmingly male - they could do a lot better on equality at the curatorial level and in the higher levels of administration. It does seem to be a fairly flexible environment for maternity leave, which is great.
