My husband works for GT. There seems to be a lot of growth and opportunity right now. Their consulting side is selling a lot and increasing in size and revenue, which is great. There is a small pension and small 401k contributions, with, I think, vesting fully after 3 years. Health insurance is great and pretty cheap compared to anything we have at IBM. We are on a PPO or EPO. Not sure about maternity. My husband works from home pretty frequently now as he is working with a few local clients, but only works onsite with them occasionally. We live outside of Philly, and he goes into the office occasionally, but only when he needs a face to face meeting that can’t be done at a client site. When he was on traveling projects, he was usually at client mon-thurs or tues-thurs, and worked from home the other days. I can get more info from him later

Thanks for the insight! Glad to hear about their health insurance and growth on the consulting side. I recently had an interview with another firm and if they aren’t traveling they are in the office which will not for me. Good to know that GT has flexibility.

Misled on Maternity Leave Policy. I found out I only get 4 weeks pay for maternity leave (STD +“sick days”). I will take 12 weeks but wont get paid for 8 weeks. I work for a US, west coast based company in the tech/VC industry. Their website claims to offer “paid parental leave and other progressive benefits for parents”. I didn’t find out until after I was hired their pay was only 8 weeks but since I have been at the company less than 12 months, I don’t qualify for their policy. Is this unfair?

Do I ask at the same time that I announce it?

Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.

I've only been at my company for 9 months. Is it too soon to request a raise? I'm at a point in my career where I'm actively being recruited by people I've worked with previously. I got the job I'm in now through a referral, and have since had two former colleagues reach out and offer a significant increase in salary if I come work with them. I finished my master's degree in December and have done really well in my role, but it's hard to feel satisfied knowing I could be making a lot more.
