We are free to speak our mind and encouraged to be accountable and empowered. However, there are still much more men than there are women, so we need more to join and support our team!

    I believe the company overall is probably more flexible that at our industrial sites which are much more difficult to be flexible.

Good work life balance with a new and generous maternity leave policy. It seems like they are working towards promoting more women into leadership positions, and I hope to see the change in the coming years.

12 weeks paid maternity leave! That's very rare, especially in the U.S. They are very transparent about making more progress towards a more diverse and inclusive employee base. It takes quite a bit for a company this size to come out and share their key learnings even if it is not a success story.

    Its very function dependent. If your function is in R&D, there is some level of flexibility if you are a scientist/engineer and above. If you are a researcher or operator, the flexibility is less visible but this is the same with a lot of companies. If your function is in the business development or commercial side, you have a lot of flexibility.

    12 paid / 2 unpaid

    There former policy was fairly generous. You can take FMLA concurrent with your maternity leave. For every year you've been with the company, you get ~2wks of paid maternity leave. The current policy is a lot more generous and gives all 12 weeks maternity leave.

    Solvay is by far the most flexible company that I've ever worked for.

    14 paid / unpaid

    Maternity leave in the US is 14 weeks of 100% pay for mothers. For paternity leave, it's 2 weeks 100%. Amazing.
