There are many women in executive leadership positions. I feel that women are highly valued at this company.

Your experience will depend a lot on the nature of your job, the department and, if you're a researcher, on the PI of the group you join. Several departments are working towards Athena Swan - other Universities are much further ahead but at least it's a start in the right direction.

Hornby Zeller Associates, Inc.

Stand up for yourself, know your worth, and do not take criticism personally. Do not expect to receive a lot of praise. Coworkers are wonderful and will support each other and praise each other but you will not get much from the upper management.

    Address the high levels of turnover. Ask why people are leaving and make changes to encourage people to stay.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. The work is interesting and engaging, however there are few, if any, opportunities for promotions. You will learn a lot, but if you are ambitious do not expect to spend your entire career at this company.

Benefits and culture seem to vary greatly between academic and non-academic positions.

Get things in writing. Make sure that what is agreed when you start a project is outlined from the beginning. Check what was expected of other people, and make sure the standards are the same for you.

    Policies need to be standardized. What is considered enough for one person should be the same for another in the same position. Everything is too subjective.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Some parts of the university are great towards females, and others are less-so. I do think women in academia are held to a higher standard in many fields, and that is challenging because you feel the need to constantly prove yourself, even if you already have.
