RTI International Maternity Leave Comments
- "There are many women working at RTI, a few in leadership positions, but there is no fully paid maternity leave. Instead, women must pay into a short term disability leave policy, which they must be enrolled in prior to conception, in order to get 6 weeks of 'paid' leave (80% pay). Because I wanted to take more than 6 weeks of leave after giving birth, I used nearly all of my saved PTO to take another 6 weeks. There are accommodations provided, at least in some buildings, for nursing mothers who need to pump, and there is a daycare subsidy, but only for one pre-determined facility and only for full time care. There seems to be some disparity in pay for men and women, but overall it is difficult to advance at RTI. Large salary increases are very rare, unless a person leaves and comes back, or leverages another offer. Men who contribute less than women seem to be accepted in ways that women wouldn't be." - Lady Malinka
- "I've worked with RTI for about three and a half years. I love the environment - I work with brilliant, experienced, passionate colleagues of all ages. Most of my colleagues are women aged 25-50 - though the more senior members of our team and of the company in general are all men. There is no maternity leave policy (you have to take short term disability), though the hours are extremely flexible. Many members of our team have children (the majority, in fact) - so most of my colleagues flex their hours to accommodate their family schedules. RTI is very generous in that respect. I do find that salaries between women and men are disparate - though RTI seems to be working to address pay inequity (slowly). I'm a more junior member of the team, and I don't really see many promotions at the junior or mid-level. It seems that most people have to leave the company and then return before they receive substantial pay raises or promotions." - Lady Washingtonian
- "Do not work here if you want start a family. There is no paid maternity leave. HR is not helpful or creative in structuring leave options. It feels like RTI wants my labor, but does not support my professional development or my needs as a mother." - Anonymous - 10820
- "Only maternity leave is FMLA, and 6-week supplemental leave. Many women take short-term disability, which pays 60%, but you must pay premiums to use it. Disability only applies to mother's health, not baby's. That means that a mother can't use her disability to care for an infant who comes home after a hospital stay." - Anonymous - 10820
