I am in bay area, and I got an offer from a start-up. They only offer law-abiding maternity leave, that is 12 week unpaid (please correct me if I am wrong). I plan to have kids, hopefully at my next job.
Not consider maternity leave, the package is somewhat good. I do believe the company has a future, and the team sounds good. But I am not sure if it's a good idea to join consider the unpaid maternity leave. Am I right?
Also, just in bay area, does things like maternity leave likely tie together with a company's policy about woman? Like I can expect less support in general.
Google will be a better place to stay to start your family. Startups will demand more of your time, have less compassion, and you’ll be competing more against others who can work crazy hours. Your priorities will change once you have a kid, I’ve seen it.
