NBCUniversal Maternity Leave Comments
- "They actually bought-out a TV station I worked for and it immediately went from a happy-family environment to misery. I never took maternity there, but did need brief time off for another legally protected reason, and was still harassed. Other women were penalized (ie: less favorable jobs/promotions) if they put their children first...one example being a mother declining a business trip due to a child's birthday. There were plenty of people available for the trip, but the mom was on an unofficial probation for about 6 months for putting her child first." - Lady Wx
- "In my department it's mainly a male dominated team, so I feel that women need to assert themselves more to be recognized at the same level. Although I have not taken maternity leave, the policy seems to be subpar against other large companies." - Lady lemon
- "I've worked here for almost 8 years and had 2 maternity leaves. In addition to maternity leave (mine was a combination of SD, baby bonding time, PFML and vacation time), NBCU provides a workplace lactation program that includes free breastfeeding classes, access to free phone support from an IBLC certified lactation consultant, and a free hospital grade breast pump. Additionally there is a maternity management program that is available through our insurance that provided ongoing support and check-ins throughout my pregnancies from a designated nurse. Following my return to the workplace, I had access to a designated lactation room (not just an office or closet). NBCU clearly seeks to support and accommodate nursing mothers in the workplace." - Lady workingmomx2
- "Took 6 months off when my son was born. Leave was great but I was passed over for a promised promotion while I was out." - NewsGal
- "Very women-heavy in entry- and mid-level positions but very male dominant at the top still. In my current role, my hourly pay rate is non-negotiable so I don't have to worry about being paid less than a man, but I am not sure how that changes once one becomes salaried and pay is up for negotiation. That said, many older women on my team have been very pleased with the paid maternity leave policy - several were on leave SIMULTANEOUSLY and their roles were temporarily backfilled and guaranteed upon their return, One was even promoted just before her leave, and barely had time to start her new role before taking the time off - great to see she was still promoted and that didn't influence the decision." - anon1883
