Monster Maternity Leave Comments
  • "I have worked here for a very long time and have worked my way up the ladder and through different departments. There is a lot of room for growth if you seek our the opportunities. While there are frustrations particularly in the lack of raises and bonuses in the last few years, I have stayed for the flexibility. While there is no official work from home policy across the company (though there should be), most people in Product and Technology work 1 day a week from home and ad hoc is accepted for things like sick kids, repairmen at the house, etc. Unfortunately it is at the discretion of a manager so someone could be a jerk about it and not allow it and I believe this is not the case in other departments in the company. The drawbacks is that the maternity policy could be far better, particularly as other tech companies greatly expand their offerings. Also, most leadership positions are held by men. With a few exceptions, all VP level positions and higher are held by men with a slightly larger number of director positions for women." - Lady Scarlett
  • "Monster offers 5 days of paid maternity leave to bridge you before EDD starts. Otherwise, you are limited to state and federal leave policy." - Lady face
  • "Amount of PAID weeks depended on if you had a c-section or natural birth. You got to take a total of 12 weeks, some weeks paid with short term disability, one week of actual maternity, and the rest you had to fill in with PTO or go unpaid. You could also borrow up to 40 hours of PTO and acrue the hours back once you were back to work, however, if you leave the company before you acrue all the borrowed hours back, the difference gets taken out of your final paycheck." - BG1081
  • "No maternity leave, not family focused. Only people without kids get promoted." - Anonymous - 10632
