    3 months paid and you can take longer if you want

    For women, a fairly long (for the US) paid time off policy

    Very generous maternity leave (4 months for moms giving birth, 2 months for other parents). Biggest downside is that other members of the firm w/o kids have to pick up the slack!

    Maternity leave for women who give birth is ~12 weeks long. Paternity leave and adoption leave are ~8 weeks long.

    Maternal coverage of 12 weeks, paternal coverage of up to six weeks

    Fair enough for a fed mother to survive if there is no coverages. If there are, it is complimentary gestures.

    Industry leading time off for both maternity and paternity leave. option to extend if needed.

    They were very flexible when I changed my plans to take all the leave at one time or to split it up.

    Bain just extended their paternity leave policy to be quite generous. New fathers now have 8 weeks of paid leave that can be taken in up to two chunks of time over the course of a year (e.g., 5 weeks at birth and 3 weeks later on).
