Does anyone happen to know the military leave policies for drilling reservists at some of the bigger tech companies? MSFT, Salesforce, Lyft, Uber, and Airbnb are some of the ones I’m interested in.

10 yoe, non-tech, Sales & Ops background in supply chain but looking to pivot into tech.

      Thanks. How does that come through in the policies? USERRA minimums or differential?

      Definitely meets USERRA minimums. Can’t speak to what parts may exceed USERRA. Is there a specific concern you have in mind?

      Specifically, commentary on unpaid vs unpaid leave. Obviously, the minimum requirement is unpaid, but I also know some companies offer either full pay up to X number of weeks or differential pay to cover the gap while you’re under shorter term orders (i.e. AT or special skills schools).

      Microsoft will cover the pay difference. Just looked at the policy and they appear to have increased it to up to 18 months from the date you report for duty. It used to be 6 months.

    15 paid military leave days a year at Snapchat. So you basically double dip during your two week annual training

      That's awesome! Lockheed subtracted my LES earnings. More reasons to work somewhere else!

      But depending on how long your leave is, Lockheed’s way might be better

      15 days/year

    Your weekend drills shouldn't matter. For AT most companies will pay you the difference between your LES and normal salary for 3 weeks.

      My unit has a tendency to pull drills forward into the weekdays due to range restrictions and travel times. Would that impact anything?

      Yes most companies won't do a pay adjustment for drill days. I'm sure they'll let you make up the work. As long as it doesn't effect your tasking.

  • The answer is deleted. Could you pls share with me your conclusion on the reasonable TC and base pay range? I have similar background (except for the military part) and pivot to supply chain recently. Thanks!
