Sorry, 20 weeks at full pay.

Fenwick has about 6 months. All new parents get 16 weeks paid parental leave. Birthing parents get 6-8 weeks post-delivery paid disability leave (8 if c-section) and can opt for 4 weeks pre-delivery paid disability leave. Option for more unpaid—I know some people who took a full year. Plus 50 creditable off-ramp and on-ramp hours.

Cadwalader gives 18 weeks paid, then the option to add another 20 days with your salary paid but without your healthcare and stuff subsidized. You can also return after leave at 80% and ramp back up.

Is this all fully paid?

At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis

I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately.

I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.

Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.
