Great Companies For Working Mothers

Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to put your career on hold—and anyone who tells you otherwise has another thing coming.

Like the saying goes, a mother’s work is never done—especially when changing diapers, packing lunches, and getting to school in time for kiddo’s recital aren’t the only things on your to-do list.

But balancing a career with motherhood doesn’t have to be unnecessarily hard, either. And some companies just get that more than others, as Working Mother magazine’s annual list of the best companies for working moms proves.

Every company on the magazine’s list offers paid maternity leave (compared to 30% of all companies in the U.S.)—averaging 10 weeks of fully paid maternity leave in 2017, a 25% increase from 2015—while 98% of the companies offer paid time off for adoption (compared to only 23% of all U.S. companies), 97% give paid leave to new fathers (compared to 24% of all U.S. companies), and 93% offer adoption assistance (compared to a low 9% of all U.S. companies). Not to mention, a large share of these companies help cover expenses like egg freezing, surrogacy, and in vitro fertilization.

Child care, telecommuting, and tuition assistance are a few amenities the majority of these companies also offer. Additionally, all of the companies provide leadership training, and many offer mentoring and career counseling services.
