hard press to find such a long leave elsewhere
I wish I were at the point where I were having kids. Google would be a great place to be. 13 weeks or so is the benefit.
Very flexible when maternity/paternity leave is taken. Both mothers and fathers tend to take a mixture of time-off just after the child is born and periodically over the next year.
Very generous plan though I haven't used it.
