Not a start up but a public tech company based in SF with <5000 global employees. Parental leave is 4 months, in US you’d add on the short term disability which is 6-8 wks depending on type of birth. Good luck!!

I’m working at a F100 company that only offers 1 week of paid leave but you can take Short Term Disability at 60% of your salary for 12-24 weeks. Overall, the US is not great at all for working mothers. Good luck with your efforts, I hope this changes!

I don’t know if this would help but check out the documentary Zero Weeks about paid family leave in the US. Parental leave is critical but it’s also important for other medical or caregiving needs and perhaps could be a supporting argument. It’s not just a benefit for women, it helps everyone.

Palo Alto based, not sure of funding, but 30 days paid maternity leave and 2 weeks paid paternity leave.

Not helpful with the policy update but if you get insurance through Afleck I've heard they pay the difference between your short term disability and regular pay while your on maternity leave.

We have something like this and its not much, but it did help some.

Some are gonna hate me for this but at what point did you realize that maybe I don’t want to be a partner and maybe this is just gonna take too much sacrificing for me to make it. In public accounting there’s a lot about work life balance this and that but I’ve never seen a partner not work all day. I’m not in public accounting anymore just curious on if any partners here ever thought to themselves that maybe being senior manager long term and making 150-200k wouldn’t have been so bad.

Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?

Ever since we had our first child, I have come to realize that I’ve been in an abusive relationship. She verbally abuses me and there were also times where I was physically hurt.

I’m thinking to file for a divorce but really feel like giving it sometime to heal over the damage first and then figure out the logistics.
