What is the maternity policy in Big4? In EY we need to work for at least an year and we get 16 weeks paid parental leave+ 2 weeks short term disability leave.
I know it’s petty of me but I am so jealous of my 8 month old relationship with his grandma! It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong but I wish that he loved me the same way or atleast had similar reaction towards me as well. It’s especially hard because I am FTM, sleep deprived, hormonal and hating my job because it is taking me away from my kid! I try to prioritize (trust me I really really try) but between pumping, managing household and ill health…
Guy here 🙋♂️ wife and I have been trying to conceive and I’ve been placed on a cross country case Mon-Thurs for 6 months. Not ideal for baby making. Could I even say anything to staffing?
Gender Issue: someone in my family (Father 🙄) keeps iterating on the issue, that woman should never be allowed in to lead positions. Can't deal with it but have to start yelling at him. Anyone h
I lost my father a few months ago and I’m not coping well. Has anyone used an employee assistance program for this? Should I just seek a counselor privately?
How do folks manage childcare? Me and my partner work both work in MBA level roles. Based on the conversations I am having with her Nanny / day care centers, I am being quoted 3-4K in expenses per child per month. Is this a reasonable number or should I be looking at alternate options. We can stretch and afford it, but my question is how does an average American raise families?
Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
Has anyone sponsored a child through Compassion International (or other charity)? What was your experience? I’ve always wanted to sponsor a child but want to make sure that donation is being used for right place/making direct impact to child’s life

Ladies how do you keep your sex life from not dying when you have a newborn? We had sex maybe twice the entire course of my pregnancy (at the beginning, I bled a little after sex so the doctor asked us to cool ourselves a bit lol) and with our baby here we hardly have the time or mood to do it. We have our baby in our room (and will probably have him until he’s a year old) and I don’t feel like doing it when the baby’s beside us. Looking to hear what you ladies have done to keep it alive!!!
We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)

Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
I received a verbal offer to go to a B4. It’s been about a week since then. They haven’t gone entirely dark, but how confident can I be that they’re not stringing me along, and that they may cancel?
The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
Been thinking about investing in Uber ($44.52) and Slack ($34.09)... anyone here invested in one of these two? What’s your take on it?

If I'm temporarily flying delta and united, what's the best way to get status? This is for whatever short time I spend with them. (AA - gold, Spg - gold, M - plat elite, hilton - gold)

In terms of total comp, who do you think makes more: an EP at an agency or a mid level producer at a FAANG company?
In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
Peeps working in London, is £43K a livable salary there? Thinking of a potential transfer from the US but looks like the starting salary I’ll get is £43K, which is a pay cut from the US market.
What’s the case for going to MBB for 2-3 years before trying to make a jump to FAANG vs going straight to FAANG post-MBA?
