    Maternity/Paternity leave is a good benefit. It can cause difficulties with management when it is utilized.

    Pearson offers both maternity and paternity leave. (Paternity leave is shorter - but I was very, very pleased to be able to spend time with my new child)

    Not sure if it is the same throughout Pearson, but I believe there is a 12 week maternity leave and a 6 week paternity leave.

    I think I had 2 weeks off for paternity leave. I wish I could have had at least one more week off.

    You get to take time off for what is needed to get your affairs in order. There is nothing else to add

    The leave you get depends on your hiring status with the company (full time, part time, etc.). Part of it is paid, part is not.

    Maternity leave is decent at two months, but could be longer. Also the policy itself is very unclear and hard to decipher. Not sure what's offered for paternity leave.

    8 weeks that is it.

    Good benefit. The company is very supportive. 100% pay for STD
