Netflix customers know just how wonderful the streaming service is in terms of price, variety, selection and overall entertainment value.
But they probably had no idea how wonderful it was to work for the company.
Few did, actually, until word broke that Netflix offers one year paid leave for new moms and dads. Lots to be excited about for Netflix employees with that statement, particularly the time framed involved, the fact that both parents are included, even dad, along with the idea that it is paid time off, rather than partial pay or a much shorter amount of time.
Netflix joins select companies and employers with the type of employee benefits that most only can dream of at their current jobs. While the average maternity leave is more like four to six weeks at company A, Netflix gets high grades for just how wonderful their perks are for parents, whether they're new, young or have been through tis a few times.
Companies like Netflix, Google and Apple tend to lean toward the benefits of making employees feel so comfortable at work through anything from vacation time to free food at work to a place to take naps, that they'll continue to recruit and draw in the best employees possible and the most talented ones.
