How does maternity leave affect your bonus and time towards partnership at your firm? My firm pro-rates your bonus based on the months you worked (no credit for leave) and can dock you a year from partnership in their discretion. They are more likely to dock you a year if you took leave for more than one child.

Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!

EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week. I remember I initially thought I would be back after 16 weeks, but then in the middle of my time off I got an email from Leave Team with the breakdown and it actually was 21 weeks. Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?
My spouse is about to go out of town for a long weekend. This is going to leave me with my step daughter. We haven't been getting along lately and she's been in full teenage and moody prime.

Could someone break down what the “mommy track” is? I’m considering having children in the next couple of years and weighing out what my options are once becoming a parent (stay big law or move in-house). Is there a standard decrease in hours and pay?

Hi fellow consultants of Indonesia, How much is the compensation for associates in Strategy&, Bain, and Kearney in Indonesia ?
🐠 From Europe here. From what I read in the posts, I have the doubt about the prestige in the CV that those strategy firms that are not MBB (OW, ADL, RB,...) have in the US. Sometimes it seems that an advisory team from a B4 has more prestige than a T2 strategy firm. Is this correct in the United States? In Europe it is not.

Currently in FSO, working on a pretty big client and the partner on this engagement is a very “big deal”, a lot of people are scared of him. If I want to change to commercial audit do you think my current team and partner would give me a hard time? How do teams view a staff that wants to change team after one busy season ? I’ve been with the firm/team for only a few months.
