You still get the company benefits regardless of how long you’ve been there. The additional FMLA is what requires the 1 year. You can also always take unpaid leave I think!

I’ve known people at EY who took paid maternity leave before a year. I think the partner just signs off and it’s fine. I had a friend in industry get pregnant at her new job too and they gave her benefits but only paid partial. Always depends on the policy at the firm or company.

I had the weirdest thing happen to me. The CTO flew down to meet with me and discuss start date, OTE Salary, and even emailed me the benefits guide. He scheduled a meeting with the CEO and said “offer letter to follow.” Three hours before the meeting the CTO called me to tell me they were rescinding everything due to a business decision that they aren’t filling the Solutions Architect role. Does this happen? What should I think of it?
