    Four months for non-consultants and longer for consultants. I wish it were the same across the board.

    Bain & Company Response

    At Bain & Company, we understand the significant benefit to mothers, fathers and families for paid time off after the birth or adoption of a child. That is why we provide 8 weeks of parental paid time off at the birth or adoption of a child and an additional 8 weeks childbirth disability leave for birth mothers (totaling 16 weeks). We also provide paid foster care leave. Employees can take additional unpaid time off based on FMLA regulations and extended unpaid leave with manager’s approval. California employees can receive additional benefits that can overlap or extend both paid and unpaid leaves. Parental leave benefits are the same for all eligible employees.

    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!
