And get this: Not only does Facebook give new parents four months paid leave (while continuing all of their benefits), but they also give them $4000 “baby cash”, and once the parent returns to work, if they have to utilize daycare, Facebook will reimburse them for up to $3000 per year.
Way to go, Facebook! This is one trail you are blazing that we hope many others follow!
