Bonding Leave Part 2

By pearl - June 19, 2015

So I am on maternity leave again for a few weeks. PAUSE!!
Ha, it's not what you are thinking. Nope, I didn't get pregnant again. A few days to my return to work from maternity leave, Intel announced 8 weeks of paid bonding leave for all employees.. Yes even the dad's get 8 weeks. So my husband and I, get to spend some extra time with our not so little anymore baby. Words can't explain how happy and blessed I feel to have some extra time with him. So I did some research to see what other tech companies are doing.
You may think you are not starting a family anytime soon, so this is the least of your worries, or maybe you don't even plan on having one. This is still important to know though. I think you can say a lot about a company based on how they treat their parents. It tells you about their work life balance. So if you plan on having a "LIFE" besides work, read on.

I list the best tech companies to work for, for moms(parents) and their benefits. Talk about GPTW (great place to work). These are not ranked in any order. It's totally random (getting lazier by the day). But yea I'm starting right up my alley.. The Intel :).

Not so fun fact: The US is one of only 4 countries in the world that does not guarantee a right to maternity leave.

I also know I am be missing some companies with greater benefits for parents. Most likely because I got lazy and also because I could not find trustworthy information on it. What is it like in the company you work for?
