Viasat was incredible flexible with my transition plan, allowing me to define a return to work schedule which best supported my teams and programs, while allowing me the flexibility to ensure bonding with my little one.

Recently Viasat implemented a maternity and paternity plan that provides leave days well above what other companies provide. This is very helpful for the fathers out there who are needed at home more than just one week after adoption or birth.
