VMware recently added paternity leave which includes up to 8 weeks? Any recognition of paternity leave is good. Maternity leave we have a lot to learn from Europe. VMware has competitive maternity leave.
Best as compared to Amazon and other startups
Very good. Both Maternity and Paternity offered. Part of it may be unpaid though.
like any big company. way past this stage so there is no additional benefit if you are done with children.
Lots of coverage for maternity paterinity leave. One of the best policies for any company I’ve seen.
I hear its 4-5 months
Don’t believe what they advertised about job-protected maternity & paternity leave. They don’t care about it when they let you go. I was laid off during my paternity leave and when I asked the HR staffs why it could happen as the leave is job-protected, they coldly answered with brain twisted law words w/o any care about me as a real person. I feel very disappointed about how they treated me after have been working there over five years.
Not all departments are flexible with it.
In billable roles, make sure to file paternity leave with HR not just your manager. Multiple occurrences across PSO of Paternity being cut short by 90% or more in lieu of billable work to make management MBOs.
New program now give both Maternity & Paternity Leave for a few (6?) months - very generous.
