Also helpful to add if you are eligible day 1or have to be there a year etc. Ours is 6 weeks (sad) for either parent including adoptive, plus 6-8 weeks short term disability for the birthing person.

@BAH1 in 2009 the total maternity leave that could be taken and was paid (full, or partial) was only 8 weeks? am I understanding that right?

ECG provides 8 weeks 100% paid baby bonding leave for mothers and fathers…I think mothers also get 7 weeks of STD at 100% and another 5 weeks of STD at 60% if they choose. Keep me honest fellow ECG’ers.

Child free people should get a paid sabbatical to compensate for paternity leave

I also feel like having kids is a generic excuse to work less - always. rolling into work at 8:30 because drop off, leaving at 4 for pick up, while the rest of us are still working away. And we just accept this lol.

D18 - no they literally just prorate it for the portion of the year you were out. Before proration it was comparable to what I always get. I get the rationale but feel like it’s still a BS policy. As an SM I had significantly exceeded all my metrics in less than 6 months of work and had an absolute top right corner scatterplot. So it feels like if I got better metrics in < 6 months than many of my peers got for the full year, why should I get less of a bonus due to leave? But I have since come to peace with the fact that some policies are just BS and getting angry about it won’t actually impact anything except my own mental health.

Wow nice

If you give birth, you get 6-8 weeks STD. Then 7 weeks for all new parents on top of that. So 7 weeks for adoptive, nonbirthing parent, etc.

2 weeks. So over USDC.

That is the case for most talent models at Deloitte, but unfortunately employees at our on shore Delivery Centers get treated like second class citizens in this regard. Hopefully it will change soon!
