Any rumors of PWC joining the parental leave arms race? EY and Deloitte upped theirs to 16 weeks paid leave, while Don Draper PwC kicks new parents in the nuts and tells them to get back on the road

Do men get 16 weeks or is that for women? Any idea of the split for primary/secondary caregiver by firm?

My partner in my CRT told me I took all 8 weeks parental..so I cannot expect to get promoted this year. Hence I am looking to get out.. the WL balance at PwC is not what they claim to be.. plus the attitude of partners sucks

@pwc1 - I would sue. That seems illegal.

@sc1 - both men and women get six weeks paid. After that it's back to work or take unpaid leave.

@deloitte1 - that's amazing

EY moms...what medical insurance did you select for 2020? I’ll be covering myself + 1 kid...we may try for another baby next year but we would start 2nd half of year so birth wouldn’t be until 2021.

I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?

1yr associate- My supervising partner in commercial is known to be a nut cracker, but he’s also very highly regarded for his work. He’s been coming down on me for careless mistakes in my papers (docket no., venue, verbiage). I know he’s right. I had two clerkships and hate clerical errors, but they have always haunted me. He’s telling me they have to stop.. or else. Help? I have a one year old baby, five year old son and just lost my stepmother to Covid. Can’t handle a job change right now.

For reference both neighbors are a couple , one is an older couple and the other are expecting their first child.TIA!

Our baby girl is now 3 mos old and has been exclusively breastfed (with the exception of the first few weeks where she got the enfamil bottles while my supply was still getting established). We now want to give her a bottle at night but she completely refused the formula bottle and puked her guts out throughout the night because of the few sips she took. What do we do now?Anyone have recommendations for alternative formulas we can try? How would you reintroduce formula to a baby like this? TIA

I need some advice on my next steps after being laid off. It’s a bit complicated but for 5 month out of this past year I was forced to give up my billable hours in order to help “load balance” our team. I went from billing 100% to 58% (safe zone). Billable hours were given to other team members who didn’t have work. This was designed to help average out hours to prevent layoffs. I agreed to do this but felt it was unethical and would affect my performance review. How would you approach HR?
