BBC Maternity Leave Comments
  • "It's had a lot of bad press recently for its gender pay gap - and more than 200 women have raised equal pay claims. But it's probably better for gender equality, and has more supportive maternity policies, than a lot of media organisations. If you work in news however you'll find most people work unsociable hours - you can have decent work life balance if you plan in advance. " - anon5594
  • "Women get 18 weeks full pay followed by 21 week statutory pay. " - anon5594
