MIT Maternity Leave Comments
  • "The benefits and university culture are wonderful. I've been given a lot of support and flexibility around my maternity leave and return. There are very few opportunities for advancement, and even fewer women getting those opportunities within my department." - Lady Thrace
  • "I was happy with the benefits although I cannot speak to parental benefits as I did not make use of them at the time." - Lady Tenderloin
