What We Love
With mother of three Ellen Kullman at the helm, this science and engineering company is sympathetic to the needs of parents, giving them up to six job-guaranteed months off to adopt, give birth, welcome a foster child or tend to relatives who are unwell. New moms are fully paid for four to eight weeks of their leave (and are eligible for $5,000 in adoption aid); if they like, they may return to work on a reduced schedule with full benefits. The nationwide Women’s Network hosts speakers on personal development, financial planning, work life issues and more. The company was a key sponsor of this year’s Global Marathon, a forum that brings together tech and engineering women worldwide.
