It's great in terms of flexibility - can set own hours and work from home but it's difficult to get promoted and there are more men in senior positions than women

    The maternity leave is pretty good in comparison to some companies 26 weeks at full pay

    As a global company the hours are very flexible and it is possible to work from home.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It's a very flexible company in terms of work life balance. However it's hard to go part time especially if a people manager when coming back from maternity leave. There have been instances of people essentially having to take a demotion to go part time. Plus the onus is on the mother to take the time off as parental leave for fathers isn't paid beyond the standard gov guidelines, but they do offer shared parental leave.

April 2016

The maternity leave is amazing. Up to 6 months leave with full pay for 3 of them. There is a transition plan for coming back to work as well. We have great lactation rooms throughout campus that have nice lighting, comfy seating and can ONLY be used for lactation purposes. In general, LEGO truly values the work life balance and it is evident that family come first. I have a 10 month old daughter in daycare... The number of doctor appointments, working from home, sick days, etc since I've been back have been met with complete understanding by my manager and team.

October 2015

Up until the Director level, it's a great place to work, no matter your gender. After that, it's hard to compete with the men who don't have to balance family and work life in the same way.
