Maternity leave policy has a lot of room for improvement. Sheryl Sandberg said it best, men seem to get promoted based on potential, women get promoted once they have already proven they can do the job. This may not be company specific, but I find this is often the case at Liberty.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    3 paid / unpaid

    2 Weeks 'Parental Leave', 1 week of 100% paid STD for each year you have been at the company, the remaining 5 or 7 weeks of STD (based on delivery) is at 2/3 salary. You can take FTO to fill the gaps, but in MA you can only rollover 150 hrs (4 weeks) of FTO, so it is pretty impossible to take a fully paid maternity leave unless you have been at the company for many years. Your bonus is also prorated at the end of the year for the time you took off, so you get penalized when you return from mat leave too.

    There is great flexibility to work from home and work flex hours, but this can vary by department or group.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Opportunity varies by group. There are less opportunities for promotion in corporate positions, especially since there is constant realignment.

Women at Ryder are expected to flirt and converse with management no matter their marital status. Management will tell dirty jokes behind your back to one another to get a reaction out of you. You have to constantly ask the manager to have somebody to train you on new material. Advancements are made toward you like for hour adjustments. The facility I worked at is a fraternity house. It's a whore house and little work is done unless pressured from customers. I was ridiculed for being a hard worker keeping my nose to the grindstone, since I did not converse casually as much even though I was not spoken to.

On paper they advocate for women but in practice it's the same old. Primarily men are partners and women who work less because of family aren't taken as seriously.

Make no mistake this is a work hard 'up or out' culture which becomes harsher as you get more senior. Generally fairly transparent egalitarian system but I strongly suspect pregnancy/maternity leave/suspected maternity leave have affected promotion decisions and appraisal ratings so be cautious around disclosure of your plans at key times.

    39 paid / unpaid

    16 weeks full pay, 10 weeks half pay, then 3 months at statutory and finally 3 months unpaid. However, you receive your benefits allowance (£6700 for senior manager) and pension in full.

    Recently (last couple of years) much improved flexible working policies (work from home, compressed hours, variable hours etc) with a good degree of trust to do your work without watching the hours (mostly because we all inevitably work more!). This is more the case for more senior people (senior manager and above), and in certain departments (e.g. tax).

The benefits on paper are fantastic. It is more difficult in practice and application to take advantage.

    You can gain flexibility easily from the standpoint that you can often work remotely if needed, with little explanation; however, it comes with the expectation that you should be effectively available 24/7. You can go home to have dinner with you family, but you better be back online and work until midnight after that.
