In our department, male administrators are tenured and make considerably more money than the non tenure track female afministrors who actually do more of the work. Mason has a great family leave policy, but overall the work load and culture are no supportive of faculty with families. And the pay is well below what it should be for the DC area. Overall, not a healthy place to work.

Unsatisfied Rater

A high-level administrator was allowed to sexually harass women with impunity for years. He even had a common nickname among his peers for doing so. The equity office was a joke--more interested in indemnifying the university from a lawsuit than actually dealing with harassment issues. No amount of free yoga classes can ever make up for my boss's boss petting my head like a dog.

Unsatisfied Rater

Men are paid higher and exceptions are made for men that are not made for women.

Indifferent Rater

All-in-all, extremely good. Lots of women highly placed (as deans, heads of programs, etc.), lots of tenured professors are women. There's a lot of flexibility in schedules and teleworking, and non-essential staff and faculty get many of the same holidays as the local public schools. There's also a subsidized day-care on the main campus. The only main issue we have is the lack of true paid parental leave. However, GMU is very generous with sick leave, annual leave, and short term disability, so even though there's not true parental leave, you can cobble together at least a partially paid leave by planning ahead.

Very Satisfied Rater

They don't pay market value in one of the most expensive regions of the country, yet admins (some inexperienced) are paid exorbitant salaries. Enormous and obvious inequities between salaries for men and women and across colleges and units. If you're single or don't have kids, you will thrive. If you are a single parent, you will find the work-life balance they tout a lie. Exploitation of contingent workers (anyone off the tenure track). Colleagues who hate each other, which makes any chance to do anything "innovative" impossible, and innovation is their brand. Koch funded and leveraged.
