Good time off, worst thing is the 3rd party that manages it.
Time off according to state policy. Claiming benefits is confusing with outside company.
This is standard as any other company.
paid maternity was great three months off is excellent with pay. You can even take extra days using your vacation time.
Generous allowances of time off for Paternity Leave I'm told which I'll find out soon since my wife is expecting our 2nd son in the Winter.
I believe it may depend on who is helping to facilitate your leave from within P&O (aka HR), but my experience in taking 6 weeks off for paternity leave was quite smooth and allowed me to concentrate on family first.
If you're a woman, you get standard 6 weeks for vaginal / 8 weeks for C-section. You can do longer for a portion of overall pay as well (FMLA allowance). If you're a man, you get a week or two (like with most companies). In terms of what is documented as allowable for men taking paternity leave, I can't speak to that - I was personally contacted 3 days after my son was born over the course of 48 hours at a hospital by my boss at the time, and from fellow Manager-level male coworkers that have been out for childbirth reasons, this is the norm (not an exception).
A little confusing to plan but overall positive
months off for maternity and at least one month for paternity
