Exxon Mobil Maternity Leave Comments
  • "This company compensates financially above peers. Yet, women have to prove themselves twice as much as men since it is very male dominated. Maternity leave is part of short term disability leave and typically sets women back when we take a few months." - ladybug30 Girl
  • "Build your technical credibility early! This is a performance based company. I took maternity leave, added on 3+months of unpaid Leave, came back on part-time basis …I had support both from my team and senior management, and it had no impact on my career progression…I went into a leadership role once I got back to full-time. Strong technical performance/credibility is like banking your "credit" for when you need it for the off-ramps of life :-)" - Madam Boss Lady
  • "Women are generally advancing if you are slightly outspoken and fit a certain personality - not giggly, not "sweet", not overly fashionable. You have to be driven and behave maturely - and even then many will assume you are younger/less experienced than male peers who are your same age (this goes for the under-35 set). I'm now in a lower/middle management role and work for a woman, who works for a woman - so there are many role models and at varying times we've had several women on our division's leadership team. I took 2 maternity leaves a few years ago and don't feel they've worked against me. The day to day is harder - it means making up for the fact that you leave "early" by working harder in the day and being willing to work from home in evenings." - Anonymous - 5978
  • "ExxonMobil has worked very hard to make the culture more flexible and accommodating to all its employees, not just women. It has come a long way since the old "Exxon" days in terms of women in management and embracing diversity and inclusion as key business drivers. While the very top is still white male, there is progress in the middle that should eventually lead to a diverse boardroom. The new campus is an amazing shift towards collaboration, openness and creativity. You area able to grab your laptop and work anywhere, even at home if needed. The wellness facility is top notch and there finally is a day care facility near work. It is about as good as any job can get, if not better. As for maternity leave, there are many options provided including extended time off, part time work and remote work." - Lady rocknerd
  • "I would say overall it is a great company to work for - great pay, benefits and fringe benefits like education reimbursement (100%!). The caveat is that it is still mostly a "good old boys club" and women have to work much harder to be recognized and promoted. Also Their maternity/paternity leave policies need to be updated." - Anonymous - 9000
  • "There aren't definitely favorites. Some women are promoted after having a baby, but some women are pushed into miserable jobs after maternity leave to a point that marginalizes them" - anon2747
  • "I didn’t take any unpaid time but we were allowed to take up to 6 months unpaid by FMLA law." - Kef81523
