Save your PTO, as there isn't paid leave otherwise. Also, don't begin by getting into the habit of why you're taking sick leave (sick child). Stay as private as possible, so you're not looked upon as not dependable.

My experience was less than ideal. It came as a surprise to me to learn that, because my base salary was at the top of the pay band, it was capped the entire time I was at the company (more than 3 years). The only oppportunity for a base salary raise would be through a promotion, and there was very limited promomotion potential.

    It was incredibly manager-dependent, and I tended to have managers who were not willing to extend much support to their subordinates.

The firm is actually excellent at being there when an exceptional situation happens- death in the family, major medical illness, etc. But the day-to-day requirements are just brutal.

    Full length maternity leave for adoption and foster care, too.

    Maybe. I don't think there's discrimination, but it's a hard job to have, whatever your gender.

Respect for time off depends on the particular manager, some are much better than others and tone comes from top down.

    Maybe. My reservations would prevent me from recommending it to all but the women and men who would fit and be happy in the idiosyncratic culture.

Because PayPal is a multi-national company with offices throughout the US, the culture here accepts a lot of calls without being present in the office. This is good for working moms but can be challenging when it's better to connect live. I have been able to craft a schedule that protects my dinner and bedtime routine with my children but can't say whether that extends outside of legal. I do find myself on calls with APAC at night and EMEA in the morning so find out the expectations before you sign on. For me, I just schedule them around my time with my family. So that means APAC calls at 9 pm, but uninterrupted family time from 5:30-8:30. Good dedicated breastmilk pumping rooms.

The company provides good options for work/life balance. I work from home 2 days per week and am not expected to check email, do additional work after hours.

Great benefits. Flexibility is determined by the department you are in. The majority of management has children as well and can be very accommodating. Keep in mind, there are a lot of departments that are pretty entry level and incredibly strict with time/vacation.
