Parental leave has been something of a discussion point among big tech companies lately.
Microsoft raised their amount of leave to 12 weeks for any parent and 20 weeks for birth mothers. Adobe raised it to six months, and Netflix is offering unlimited leave for the first year of a child's life.
Most of these companies say the move is about employee retention.
Adobe said in a statement, "Our employees are our intellectual property and our future. ... The investment is unquestionably worth it."
