McKinsey & Company Maternity Leave Comments
  • "I worked at McKinsey for about 7 years. It was a great experience, but I didn't know how political it would get as you get more senior in the Department. McKinsey is a Partnership and this is an important fact to remember - it's not just about your own performance but also which Partner is in charge and who is in their support network - as the lead Partners move around so do political allegiances, especially in the support staff departments. You might well be doing a great job but if there is no-one to bat for your team, you won't last long. Maternity leave was for the most part uneventful - they will leave you alone while you're on maternity leave but most McKinsey women prefer to keep in touch with the office and it is easy to do so most of the time." - Lady mcbungat
  • "10 weeks full pay, 9 weeks 60%, the rest statutory pay. For women who have been with Firm for more than 5 years, 19 weeks of full pay." - OakTree
  • "You can take a year unpaid leave after paid leave while keeping full benefits (which are generous)" - nycanon
  • "All birth parents now receive 16 weeks of paid leave after birth. All non-birth parents now receive 8 weeks of paid parental leave" - Lady Mom of Two
  • "All non-birth parents now receive 8 weeks of paid parental leave" - Lady Mom of Two
  • "McKinsey offers $30,000 lifetime IVF treatment maximum. They don’t require pre-authorization and lifetime medication maximum is limited, but limitations vary. Their plan will refuse to cover PGS testing, but will not exclude any clinic." - Anonymous
  • "McKinsey & Co. offers 16 fully paid weeks off for new moms. They also offer 12 weeks off for adoptive parents." - Anonymous
