PatientsLikeMe Maternity Leave Comments
  • "Very few women in upper management, but overall a fairly equal gender distribution. This is however a problem that should be addressed (getting more women into leadership roles) as the company continues to grow. Company is very supportive of flexible work schedules, with some departments having explicit "work from home" days. I was able to work a reduced schedule after maternity leave and keep my health benefits (min 20 hours for health benefits). The maternity leave policy also includes a disability policy that pays 60% of your salary for 5 weeks. This is worse than most companies in this industry, but sadly pretty good for the US. Many of the social activities involve alcohol (e.g. holiday party is usually at a whiskey bar with an open bar), and there is a beer fridge and regular ping pong at the office creating a bit of a frat boy atmosphere at times. Though some would call that a cool startup environment, it can be annoying or even alienating if you are pregnant or just don't like to drink with work people. Overall great people to work with and the flexibility of work place and time is especially great for people with young kids." - Lady Violette
  • "New 2018, after 1 year with the company you can combine 5 weeks parental leave, plus 5 weeks of short-term disability at 60% pay, plus 3 weeks of paid sick leave (separate from sick days) to get to 11 weeks paid parental leave for primary caregivers. Add another 5 sick days that are available, and it's 12 paid weeks. Non-primary caregivers/fathers get 5 weeks paid" - Lady Violette

  • "2%" - Lady Violette
  • "Very complicated PPO plan with HSA and HRA, or you can choose something like an HMO but with more limited network. Family out of pocket is effectively $1500 after employer contributions, individual is $750 (pre-tax) for PPO plan." - Lady Violette
