    5 months paid leave for women, 3 months paid for men, allows you to split the time off, need to exploit within a year after the kid is born

    Glad they offer paternity leave. Would be nice if they also didn't have a stigma when men actually ask to take it. Men should not be discriminated against for wanting to spend time at home with a newborn. The tech industry needs to get over its sexism.
