125 employees reported this benefit
Maternity and paternity leave are available for AbbVie employees.
8 weeks of paid time off for new dad's, and up to 16 weeks paid time off for new mom's. An additional 10 weeks of unpaid can be taken during the first year.
8 weeks paid for non-birth mother, 14+ for birth mother (depends on method of delivery). Leave can be spread out anyway over the following year, with consultation with manager, so some people will take several weeks, and then do 3 or 4-day weeks after that. Longer unpaid leave available with health care coverage. Overall, a good plan by US standards.
Great benefits for Mom and Dad
Covers new parents which is great.
Managers try to limit use below what is allowed
Recently added paternity benfit is a plus for fathers.
Great maternity and paternity leave benefits, longer than anywhere else I've worked.
The Maternity & Paternity leave plans are very good. This benefit is even better starting from this year!!
Only 2 weeks for fathers, not sure for mothers but much longer
Maternity and paternity leave benefits are great, not a lot of companies offer such good benefits in these days. Highly recommend Abbvie!
