Speaking from a position in a smaller business unit, the benefits are great and the office culture is understanding of work-life balance.

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.
Yes
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.

Great, steady jobs. I recommend that they offer paid maternity leave though.

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.
