Johnson & Johnson Maternity Leave Comments

  • "Gender diversity is a big things at J&J, as is all diversity. Not only are women treated fairly, but many achieve executive leadership positions. I am a woman, whose boss is a woman, who in turn has a boss who is a woman. It is not until 3 levels up that I find the first man in my hierarchy. The best person, best educated, with the best experience will always get the job here at J&J. In the 6 years I have worked here, I have seen some truly amazing things. For example, paid maternity leave is paid at 100% of the employees salary, is not held against them, and was recently extended from 12 weeks to 17 weeks. The culture is not one of competition, but of collaboration. The management is focused on a coaching mentality rather than an "ordering" one. And, some of the most marginalized people in society, transgender women, are not only accepted and not discriminated against, but the company pays for their medical bills and paid time off for surgeries. All in all, J&J is an amazing place to work for any person, let alone women." - Lady AraCatastrofee
  • "I worked at J&J in pharmaceutical marketing for close to 12 years. Generally, women are treated great, and there are many female leaders and role models. That said, there is some variability depending on the specific role and team one is working for. I had some teams and bosses who were terrific. Then, in my most recent position, I had a terrible supervisor who expected her team to work above and beyond at all hours and was a micro manager. I left the company as a result. J&J just instituted a new maternity leave policy that is extremely generous and way above standard here in the US. From that perspective, I wish I still worked there!" - Lady momof4girls
  • "J&J had great maternity benefits when I was there, and I've heard they've improved them. They had a great space for pumping breast milk at my location and I was able to pump 3x a day at work without anyone discouraging me from doing so. There was a fitness center and people were encouraged to use it. While there were women in management, there weren't enough of them. Most of my colleagues were great people. I had some very good managers, and some very bad, and I didn't feel the performance review process was transparent or fair." - Lady nestingbird
  • "8 weeks paid parental leave for all new parents. Mother's giving birth get up to 17 weeks paid but part of that is FMLA so you need to be there for a year." - Lady Tywladess
  • "Great company with good benefits for moms/families. Just extended the maternity leave policy. Support for IVF and adoption. Daycare available at most sites in US." - CommsFem
  • "Will take longer with next baby- old policy was in effect." - CommsFem
  • "Men & Women can take up to 52 weeks of unpaid leave." - makeitbetter
