Accenture 🐠 what is the paternity leave policy? Having our second and leave looks like secondary gets 2 weeks but are we allowed to take primary once our wife goes back to work?

As a dad I took primary for my last child and for the full eight weeks, no questions asked. There is not any type of justification process to prove you are primary or secondary. You do have to complete the leave within 16 weeks of the birth, the key here that it has to be completed. Therefore you must start it within 8 weeks after the birth. If you wait until your wife finishes hers, depending on how long hers is, you may not be able to take all 8 weeks.

same, took 8 weeks no questions asked.

My leave coordinator said I would be crazy to not do primary. It helped after my wife had a c section and really needed more help than expected.

Prioritize better

You can try to work it out to be flexible with your team too. I took primary but actually worked for half of it and then charged time wks 16-20 to make up for it to the project. Made it so wife went back to work and I did the 8 wks plus added another 5 of PTO

So KPMG changed it benefits, 6% of you salary (not just base pay) contribution to 401K without any contribution required by employees and 3 years of vesting period. So you will get the 6% even if you don’t put anything into 401K. So proud of KPMG

I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.

I’m 30, with no kids, currently paying $540/mo for a whole life insurance policy through my advisor (family friend, mind you) at NWM. No debt, investing 2k a month into other more traditional investments (e.g., 401k, ira). I care less about the death benefit but I’ve been repeatedly reminded about the guaranteed RoR associated with the cash value - does this investment vehicle make sense to continuing with? TIA!

So my husband recently became a share partner at a firm, which is a bit stressful for us because (i) it’s a big transition and a lot of stress for him and (ii) they are pressuring him to move to NYC (we are based in TX where most of my family live). Anyways, we are planning to have kids, and I’m worried that if we move and have a child that I will alone, also working in biglaw and raising the child alone without help. Anyways, I was wondering other women’s thoughts, experiences and advice.
