Wieden offers four months of fully paid leave for parents who gave birth, and two months fully paid leave for all parents (birth, adoptive, foster). They also provide protected leave for up to six months. Both full-time and part-time employees are eligible for parental leave as of their date of hire. They sort of assist with the costs of fertility treatments, covering up to $15,000 on the core plan or $30,000 on the buy-up plan of treatment and egg-freezing storage. For parents choosing a surrogate, the surrogate can be added to the employee insurance plan.

That's good. When I was there, I think it was two weeks of paternity.

R/GA is three months full pay. This is IPG policy. Six weeks pay for paternity leave. I believe same arrangements for same sex parents, surrogates and adoptions.

Lol. ”Top Agencies,” and all the Drogas are the first to show up.

Not saying you’re wrong. But c’mon that’s funny.

Here it's 16 weeks fully paid, you can take longer unpaid. Assume even longer under NY disability coverage if valid.

I think both parents can take leave as well but primary caregiver gets 16 and other parent gets 8, similar to w + k

How much stock do you put on benefits? I have two offers with stark differences in benefits. Job 1: role I want, but benefit sucks (2 weeks paternity leave, 20% coinsurance). Job 2: role is okay but higher level and great benefits (16 weeks paternity, 0% coinsurance, 5 more days of vacation). Total comp is the same though. I wonder if I should just focus on role but Job 2 is a large company, so I can move around after 2-3 years I’d expect. Thoughts?

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).
