General Motors Maternity Leave Comments
  • "Ask for what you want. If you are a strong performer in a progressive group, they will bend over backward to keep you with long maternity leaves and flex time when you return but you are the one who has to present a win-win solution." - Anonymous
  • "I've worked at various departments for 7+ years. Some groups are male dominated and very inexperienced in issues such as maternity leave simply from lack of encountering it. Others are very diverse with family friendly policies. I think you have to take control of your route through the company to take you to the groups that are of most advantage to you at your stage in life, and if you find yourself unable to do so (ex. request for dept. transfer is blocked by manager) then it's time to sharpen the resume for interviewing elsewhere. Don't get stranded. It's the sort of place where you can blink and have spent more than 5 years in a department." - Anonymous
  • "7 weeks @ 50%" - Anonymous
  • "Company policy is good but not groundbreaking. As a company with a female CEO we should have groundbreaking maternity leave and we do not. The culture is generally great. I absolutely love my job and what I do. One must be aware however that it is still a male dominated field and without malice intent men get more pay and are more likely to be promoted. " - Anonymous
  • "6 weeks per child" - Anonymous
  • "excellent maternity leave policy thanks to the union. Trouble is, if you take what is legally yours beyond FMLA, you are written off or mommy tracked. Even though it is legal for you to do so. " - Anonymous
  • "Part-time jobs were offered in the past." - Anonymous
