    Standard 8-10 weeks maternity leave, and CA state offers partial pay an additional 8-10 weeks. Most of us take the max 4-5 months leave and management is supportive. There are Expectant Mother parking spots at Mountain View offices. At least one week PTO must be used for the elimination period and no additional PTO is offered to mothers. Fathers receive an additional 2 weeks PTO and can also use up to 6 weeks of partial pay from CA state.

    Symantec offers standard 8-10 weeks STD, and CA state provides partial pay the remainder of the time. Most take 4-5 months total. There are expectant mother parking spots at all the Mountain View buildings.

    Twelve weeks standard, fourteen weeks for cesarean birth. After a mandatory use of forty hours of PTO, the state disability kicks in however Symantec has an option to pay for higher coverage and that can used. PTO or unpaid can be used if you want longer than what is the standard. This is pretty standard coverage in the US, but could be a bit longer.

    Well established plan with 4-6 weeks of leave + programs that the CA state offers.
