Are you entitled to parental leave benefits from Day 1 at Accenture? We will have a baby within the first year of me working at Accenture…trying to confirm whether I’ll be eligible for leave benefits.
Any success stories of setting boundaries while pregnant? I am working 70+ hours a week and routinely taking nighttime calls, etc. I’m so exhausted and feel like I am running myself down. Just got out of first trimester. Is it kosher to just be like “hey, I’m not working more than 50 hour weeks, period”?
How do you go about handling a parent doing the work vs the student? How do you grade it? Or do you lol
My one month old baby hates firm mattress and won't sleep in cradle.. She was doing just fine in her first month but now she cries to sleep in it. Should I top up with soft layers and later contd.
Not confession but asking for advice: I have a sibling who, since childhood, thinks that my mom favors me more than her. For example, if she’s eating smth and my mom goes ‘we’ll leave some for you’ to me in front of her, she would get mad at her and show temper tantrums. She has told my mom how she feels too but I think she’s getting mad at very trivial things? I don’t know if she hates me or is jealous of me since I’m the supposed favored child. Should I just keep pretending everything’s ok?
I want to adopt a cat but I grew up with a dog, and have never owned a cat before. Does anyone have advice for cat ownership, where to start, how to find a social and cuddly rescue, etc?

How much notice did you give your employer when taking parental leave? I’m interested in hearing from both men and women. What is considered the standard notice as well as minimum that is professionally acceptable. Also interested in scenarios where the full leave was not taken immediately after childbirth.

Can someone from ACN tell me how the new maternity leave policy works? Contacted HR, read the policy but an confused if you get the 16 weeks plus FMLA, then your PTO if you want to take that.
I’ve been saving all of my kid’s clothes for her little sister, but this is the first time she’s outgrown her underwear. What do experiences moms do? Save it to be used again by the little one? Recycle it? Donate it and buy new underwear when the second needs it? The thought of sharing underwear kinda weirds me out. I also feel weird donating it, but I was reading online that there are places that really appreciate second hand underwear.
Anyone else find it impossible to control what you eat pregnant? I was a littler overweight to begin with and I’m up 40 pounds already (two weeks left) just stress eating ice cream all damn day 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

24F and I have never found someone I’m compatible with long term. Finally met someone recently & we hit it off very well (I was so excited!!) but as we got to know each other over a month, our fundamental values & differences became more obvious. I’ve been single my entire life and I am sick of people asking why I’ve never had a relationship. How much do you actually compromise in finding a partner?
What do you charge agencies? (At each level l) I think this is a perfectly fair question to ask when we’re factoring in your salary into our offer... thoughts?
Do MBA hires get placed as senior consultants at Deloitte? Or consultants? Confused about the hierarchy there. Also, can anyone shed light to Deloitte bonus %’s?

I am interviewing for an in house job. Large startup in Europe (had Series C and raised 150M) and is starting a US presence. They want to pay base and bonus but bonus is all RSUs/options. It’s significant (about 75% of all in comp). Are these entirely worthless if the company never goes public?
