"Flexibility depends on the department and your manager. I was able to work from home one day a week after having my child. "

Did you take Maternity leave?
"Yes"
10 Weeks Paid | 2 Weeks Unpaid
"For a "life stage" company, and a company that has experiences and apps built around pregnancy and parenting, the maternity leave policy isn't great. You get paid in full for 6 weeks, half pay for weeks 7-10, and then "pay what you work" for weeks 11 and 12."

"XO is a great place to work, but I wouldn't expect much career advancement within the company - after a couple years here, you'll probably have to leave to get a promotion or more money."

"I think the policies are right, but I think a woman exercising a flexible schedule would struggle to have the same promotion opportunities and recognition. I don't believe the Agile methodology really supports a flexible schedule."

Did you take Maternity leave?
"Yes"
12 Weeks Paid | 0 Weeks Unpaid
"The maternity leave policy was recently updated (from 10 weeks paid) to 12 weeks paid and 6 weeks of ramp-up. The ramp-up period was great. More than 12 weeks of leave would be even better, but this is a solid step in the right direction for mothers at XO."

"The maternity leave policy was different when I had my first child - less pay for fewer weeks but was updated shortly thereafter to include 6 weeks paid at 100%, 4 weeks paid at 50% and up to 2 weeks that can be taken unpaid for a total of 12 weeks off. Upon returning to work, you can come back at half time hours for the first two weeks to transition back into the workplace. Not many people seem to take advantage of this added benefit."
