We get 6 or 8 wks short term disability. That’s partial pay. Then we have to exhaust our vacation. I’m due in March so I’ll have all of 3...maybe 4 days built up by then? When I talked about the worry of putting an infant into daycare at 12 weeks old the response was “you can take longer, but your job will not be held.” For fucks sake. It’s 2018. My clients get 6 months paid. Somehow we make due!!

This is so important. It’s terrible and everyone just keeps going with it. How do we make change happen?

It’s horrendous. Publicis is the worst in the industry

The sad thing is that Publicis gets major press for being one of the leading parental leave friendly groups. LB and Digitas are frequently featured in Working Mother magazine. Digitas’ parental leave leaves LB in the dust, it’s so much better.

Having taken LB’s parental leave, while I am thankful for the little time I had, it has a long way to go for the amount of praise it gets.

I'm with a Publicis agency. We get 2 weeks through our agency and 6 weeks of short term disability. But I wish there were other perks such as an ease in policy for returning parents.

Wow. I’m sorry. Is there any internal organizing going on to make change?

I don’t think that’s across all Publicis agencies

Wow, OP. That is not okay. Is that all Publicis agencies?

It is at MSL

These years will fly by as many of you have suggested so I want to make any effort to be present.
