Does Blue Buffalo offer parental leave?

Pros

Used to be a great place to work - seemed as if they cared, good benefits, treated well -

Cons

where to begin - was a 9 year employee - admired by many and praised by most - decided to report sexual assault and the harassment from my director and was told by the owner to take it to HR, which I did - they did nothing and actually asked if I was "sure" I wanted to report it - when nothing was done, I went to legal - and essentially was told to sit down and be quiet (I didn't know the GM acquisition was taking place) _ they eventually tried to "coach me out" as tactic used to save from paying unemployment - When they announced the acquisition to us (via facebook, after it happened) - I decided to quit - they offered compensation for me to fade away - it turned out to be a pittance after truly dedicating my 9 years to working with them and helping them grow into what they are today - so sad that it ended that way and nobody cared

Advice to Management

If you give advice to employees, such as "Report all sexual harassment, we don't tolerate that here" - you should actually mean it
