Employer Summary

In 2017, we increased our fully-paid parental leave period to 20 weeks for U.S.-based regular full-time and part-time employees. The new paid parental leave policy covers mothers and fathers welcoming a child through birth, adoption, or surrogacy. In addition, birthing mothers will continue to be eligible to receive paid, medically-necessary leave related to the birth of their child, which is generally, six to eight additional weeks.

Great benefits. I had 3+ months of paid for my 2 children. Lately, they gave this benefits to your father/partner which is great.

6 monthly 100% fully paid as long as you are a full time employee and the baby comes a year after your start date. So essentially, join and after your 4/5th month you can get pregnant.
