Any moms at kpmg take maternity leave around the time when a salary increase should be taking place (e.g. start your leave mid-september when comp increases is expect in October)? Is it worth pushing off those 4 STD weeks before the due date to get yourself the new salary before going on leave? Any other ways to get the higher salary while on leave? Does it take effect if youre using pto and not the parental leave (maybe save your primary parental leave for a day later or something)?

Take your leave. They cannot reduce your salary increase because you went on leave a month before- that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. In fact in our group the informal rule has been to give women that have taken maternity leave at a minimum the same raise they had the year before and maybe prorate the bonus. The new salary should take effect while your on STD.

Thanks for the insight, wasn't asking about the other stuff. Just the last sentence re: when the comp increase takes effect. My understanding was it only takes effect while you're in active employment and not during std or leave of absence - was that not the case for you? Did you receive your increases reflected in your payments while you were out on leave?

I work as a quant/associate at a large (>300 billion aum) long only mutual fund. Ive been here for about a year, but seeing how crazy the job market is, I’m wondering if I should put feelers out again. I like my coworkers and I work good hours. I get 110k as base, and got a 10k sign-on bonus. They said min bonus is 15k, but I’m not sure what the range is as I haven’t been around for a bonus cycle. This in a HCOL city. I also get 30% match in my retirement accounts. I have ~2 YOE. Thoughts?

After speaking with a friend who’s a CFP, he suggested I contribute only to the After-Tax, but I wanted to validate that advice here. If it helps I’m 24 and my current base is around 110k. Thanks in advance!
