    First time parents are given a monetary bonus plus FMLA leave

    Be careful! By law, the company cannot fire someone for FMLA, but managers consistently try to eliminate individuals who take FMLA for any reason.

    I never used this benefit, and yet I hear from coworkers that maternity and paternity leave are an acceptable benefit.

    You get two weeks paid even for being the father.

    Bundled into PTO time; based on seniority. If you require longer than the time you have, and don't qualify for short term disability, you receive unpaid leave after PTO time is exhausted.

    Vanderbilt does now offer a paid parental leave, but it's only for 2 weeks. After that, you have to use short-term disability which is not full pay, but some percentage...60%? You can use that for 6 weeks. After that you can use PTO. 2 weeks paid leave is more than they used to give, but you used to be able to save up sick time so you didn't lose any pay.

    For staff, you now get 6 weeks paid maternity leave. (This is new in ~2014. Before that, you could only use accrued sick and vacation time.) However, since you can't accrue sick and vacation time because it expires if not used in a year, you couldn't take a very long paid leave.

    Mat leave is included in 'time bank' with holiday and vacation. must take short term leave for additional time off. Vandy used to give discount to employees (mothers) when delivered at Vandy, that has been axed...

    Vanderbilt University Medical Center provides Maternity & Paternity Leave benefit. But I am not familiar with it.

    Vanderbilt no longer allows perspective mothers the ability to plan for being able to take all the time off they allotted by policy because employees can no longer store vacation/PTO past one year. Making women who face complicated pregnancies compromise or put themselves at financial or physical risk
