What is considered a “good” maternity leave policy? Would love to hear any tips or advice. Most of the women in my family do not work in corporate so I’m not sure where else to ask. 🩷

Job scammers go as far as this:
posted a "job" on a site, sent a form, conducted an interview (complete with accent), informed me that the job offer will be sent via mail.
Mail received.
Red flags:
- plain white envelope
- logo on letter head too small (snipped)
- letter poorly written
- JD different from what is posted
- comes with with a $2800 check (payment for "trainings")!
Thank goodness I triple checked before I scan the check. Be aware, Be smart, Heartless people exist!

What are acceptable and common salary ranges for Associate Strategy Directors and Strategy Directors in the UK?

Wasn’t expecting to spend my Saturday night on suicide watch.
My former company
Horizon Media laid me off last November after I told them I was dealing with some issues (pre-diabetes and sexual assault) without paying my severance! I spend around 700 CAD/month on daily medication for mental health and with no benefits I can’t afford living anymore.
