    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, diverse projects, generally very friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits not competitive. In my department, 85% of the women have graduate degrees, compared to 5% of the men. We generally have more experience. Yet are overlooked for management positions, and payed less than men with equal or lesser experience.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more concerted effort to pay women the same salaries as men.
