Headquartered in New York, New York, throughout its nearly 60-year history OppenheimerFunds has remained an industry pioneer in the field of global asset management. The firm prides itself on the ability to work with clients who have a diverse set of needs, helping them invest their money wisely no matter what their long-term goals are. In 2018 the company extended leave time for the birthing parent to 16 weeks and eight weeks for the non-birthing parent.
Despite not providing their employees with direct child care or money for it, OppenheimerFunds still has very flexible time off and employee assistance programs, both of which help employees balance family life, vacation, sick time and personal time. For employees who are looking to start a family by adopting, OppenheimerFunds also offers an adoption assistance program.
Through its 10,000 Kids by 2020 program, OppenheimerFunds aims to introduce 10,000 students to math literacy through programming and active employee volunteering.
Fatherly’s 2018 rankings are based on a scoring metric inclusive of data related to company policies on the following issues: paid parent leave, ramp-back time, flextime, onsite childcare, childcare subsidies, backup childcare, number of sick days, support groups, fertility aid, adoption aid, student loan assistance, education funding, bereavement leave, elder care planning. Length of paid leave, onsite childcare, and ramp-back time were the most heavily weighted ranking factors.
