UPS Maternity Leave Comments
  • "The short-term disability that comes with the benefits package for all management is pretty decent- 100% pay continuance for up to a pre-determined amount of weeks and then 80% afterwards, up to 26 weeks if medical need necessitates. However, be prepared for the delay in paperwork and little things like c-section recovery being treated exactly the same as vaginal delivery for maternity leave, regardless of what the doctor says. My advice is that if you're a heterosexual woman, particularly without racial minority status or graduate level education, run. It's perfectly fine for a part-time job during school. It's not a career. The company as a whole, particularly in operations, has not left behind the "good old boy" mentality. I have been here for twelve years and while a good part of it was in my younger, less business savvy years, I have been consistently looked over for promotions due to my gender. Case in point? "You'll have more promotion opportunities open to you after the baby's born." said to me while pregnant with my last daughter. I then was expected to cover my supervisor on her vacation time. Be careful about considering a tenure here." - Madam Meepster
  • "Take as much maternity leave as is allowed. I came back early after my first child, and no one appreciated it... It was undue pressure I put on myself. Also, pay raise was pro-rated after my second child/maternity leave. And people wonder why women's salaries fall behind men's? Disappointing for a company that tries to promote women's leadership. Put your $ where your mouth is, UPS! Work is very stressful, long hours, high expectations. Difficult to maintain a proper work-life balance." - Lady Ladyupser
  • "I have been with UPS for almost 10 years in non-operations positions (read: I don't handle freight/packages and am not union). While I am happy to have a steady job, this is still very much a male-dominated company and I don't see them doing much to change. No paid maternity leave (except for disability insurance) and there aren't a lot of opportunities for work from home options or flexible work schedules (even if you have a laptop, you're still expects to put in your eight hours at the office - the laptop is so you can work in the evenings or weekends). In addition, you have a forced one-hour lunch, so you are looking at a nine-hour day minimum. It varies from group to group, but management employees are expected to go "above and beyond" and work early and/or late, plus take work home. This all adds up to making it very difficult to obtain any semblance of work-life balance (a term they throw around quite a bit, but never seem to actually do much about). As far as treatment of women, it's still clear this is very much a boy's club. It's much harder for women to get promoted and those that do are usually single and/or childless because they aren't being "punished" for trying to have a family. I had my first child earlier this year and while my management was supportive, I can already tell that my leaving right at 5 p.m. (Instead of staying to 5:30 like a "good" employee) is being noticed and I probably won't go much higher, but that's a sacrifice I am willing to make. A lot of people within UPS would like to see things change and eventually they may as the "old guard" starts to retire, but it definitely won't be for another few years at least. I am fortunate that I am one of the employees who is still eligible for a pension from UPS (newer employees aren't) - otherwise I would have left a long time ago." - Lady Montague
  • "Maternity leave is only 6 paid weeks for regular delivery AND C-section. " - roygbiv9
  • "I ended up taking an additional 4 weeks (unpaid) of personal leave after my 12 weeks were up because I wasn't ready to go back. It was not an issue. " - roygbiv9
