At PwC you have to be w the firm for 3 months before birth to be eligible for parental leave. Sounds like you should be ok. If you’re joining PwC feel free to DM me for more info.

I am, this is helpful. Thank you.

Ask your recruiter for the number to HR and inquire about parental leave benefits and eligibility for them. Each of the Big 4 have their own unique policies.

Well if you won’t be due until later in the year I’d imagine you could eventually transition to virtual work and then maternity leave. Try building a strong relationship with one of your partners early on and I’m sure they’ll support it

Yes

Except EY will give you bad leave benefits unless you’ve been there long enough

I have become frustrated with the profession (no discipline, labeling every student for something, students not prepared for grade level content, parents who don't really parent). Anyone with me?

Had a second baby almost a year ago now and just can’t get back into work mode. I used to be a workaholic and now can’t find any motivation in my current job. Most of it is probably sleep deprivation and feeling like I don’t have any time to myself anymore, plus burnout. Anyone go through this after having kids? How long did it last? I don’t have the option of simply quitting, but contemplating switching to a true 9-5, no-stress job, possibly out of law, while they’re young. But that’s scary.

Two years ago, I had an affair with a married man, a partner at a big 4 who was really sweet (and obviously toxic). Met at a bar in April … it was off and on until November (plus one night in December that ended very badly). I was in an awful place mentally and emotionally in my life, and sort of just blew up my life. I even quit my job (no, we didn’t work together), no notice, couldn’t get out of bed…..

Baby furniture. What is everyone doing? FTM and trying to figure out if it’s worth investing in very expensive nursery furniture. We were looking at the Natart furniture collection and the Silva collections. These both come in at about $2000-$2400. The furniture is high quality and grows with the child. Alternatively I could go the lower end route at get everything for like $800. Is that wise? I hear horror stories about low quality and paint chipping from the baby teething on the crib.

I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me.

I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.

Recently 1 of my clients initiated open PTO policy. The transition from set leave balance to open was smooth process. However we are running into dilemma of how we standardize different types of leaves and whether there will be a limitation to how much open PTO is used at one time. For leisure, we just limit taking two weeks max at one time. However if we have volunteer policy or bereavement policy how should we standardize it? If EE is out for longterm sick, how do we standardize time paid?
