We are a ~55 people software development consulting company in NYC. We provide 12 weeks parental leave no matter who you are. We believe there is no primary or secondary caregiver. Every parent is an equal caregiver.

When I worked at Nestlé (~25k USA) we had 6 months leave for primary. 18 months fully paid leave for primary, FMLA for rest. 3 or 4 weeks fully paid for secondary care. My particular division would send a giant basket with all of the gerber goods since we owned them. We also send a gift card from their registry per policy.

I looked into this about 2/3 years ago when we were looking to update our policy. Atleast as off that time, some of the ‘best in class’ were between 20-24 months for primary, a SHRM study had found that 60% of employers have 12 weeks, 33% more than 12 weeks. Some companies also allow certain weeks where employees can come in part time as a way to ease back in to work.

we are in public accounting in the northeast. we are about 200 employees. we offer 8 weeks of full maternity (1st caregiver), 2 weeks of full paternity (2nd caregiver) and a 30 day transition period where the primary caregiver can work 20 hours a week but be paid for 40.

I should clarify- when I say "full" I mean 100% paid

Publishing/Media ..125 employees 16 weeks primary caregiver/4 weeks secondary caregiver.,for primary caregiver the first 6 weeks is covered by STD that pays 70% of weekly wage then we supplement the 30% to make them whole. Company salary continuation is 10 weeks + 6 weeks STD = 16 weeks, which does not include NYPFL if they want to use that.

In the CPG space, under 100 employees. Primary: 8 weeks, 100% paid Secondary: 3 weeks, 100% paid

14 weeks full paid maternity leave for the primary caregiver (they can opt for 28 weeks at half pay), and 2 weeks paid leave for primary caregiver. In total the primary caregiver can take 1 year of leave, with the remaining 38 weeks being unpaid.

100% Paid Leave - 16 weeks, 8 is FMLA - 8 is Primary Caregiver. - Secondary Caregiver is 8 weeks.

I’m dense? You’re on maternity leave and you decided to pick a fight with a stranger on the internet. And I’m the one who’s dense? Your baby needs you.

Can you provide advice to succeed/survive on the corporate client side? Moved away from agencies to corporate and it is SOUL SUCKING.
