No but I’ve gone on vacation there. I would honesty live somewhere else than San Jose

I have friends that were there for a few years via work. They loved it, but you need to live in a gated area. They totally didn’t want to do this at first as they are very adventurous, but needed to for safety reasons.

That was precisely my question. My parents are looking at a house outside a gated community. The owner says the Canadian and Swiss embassies are close and the area is safe, but I wasn’t sure. Thoughts?

You’re welcome! Good luck to them!

Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
