United Continental Holdings, Inc.

United has no parental leave policy and no short term disability. If you are planning to have children, you have to use your sick leave and vacation days to cover your time away.

    Unfortunately I think this really depends on management. Currently, United is going through another cultural shift that is very focused on cost cutting and the employees suffer.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    10 paid / 6 unpaid

    I was fortunate to be in the position to take over a month unpaid due to savings because my employer does not have maternity leave.

Nuclear Energy Institute

Counsel, Legal

There is zero paid leave for a child, adoption or sick family member. There is no written policy, but from talking to other women here you are required to use your short term disability and combination of sick and vacation time. This is often negotiating on a ad-hoc basis which creates inequities in how different employees take their family leave. They do however, value women in the work place, their voices. Our CEO, General Counsel, VP Government Affairs, VP of Regulatory Affairs, Human Resources, and Executive Vice President are all women.

    This is based on my experience with my boss. I am pretty sure it is across the organization but it can depend on your supervisor. Overall, they are flexible when it comes to family issues, just not paid maternity/paternity leave.

it is not an 'old white man's' company, depsite the appearance of the CEO. There are great opportunites, working with great people, if you are willing to invest the time and learn the company culture.

    Maybe. While the work is interesting, there is always more work than time, and the company demands a high level of work and personal integrity. This is just not the company for everyone.

Wells Fargo

Counsel, Legal

This company makes strides to promote and include women. However, within teams, I belive women are treated less fairly related to pay and bonuses, along with promotion. While we do have some women "at the top" the women in the middle seem to struggle to make it up the chain more than men. From what I understand, the maternity policy is just use of vacation time and short term disability.

I felt women were generally supported, although their seemed to be an idea that support for women meant maternity leave, being able to leave for soccer games, etc. There is a complete lack of women in leadership, and do not see that changing.
