Are there any other neurodivergent women in this group? I'd love any advice or insights you may have about disclosing my disability status to a large employer. I've always worked at small companies and am making the jump to a massive company this week. I'm mainly wondering if there will be big differences in the disclosure process or reactions to the disclosure between a small and large company.

In my experience larger companies have had more/better infrastructure/policies in place to get accommodations or to help you work out issues. The smaller companies I’ve worked at either had just one annual workplace safety/anti-harassment seminar or were still so startup that they didn’t have anything beyond the basic legal language in their contracts and no hr. I would talk to your new place’s hr person to see how they recommend you proceed with disclosure. I know it’s a struggle finding the balance where people understand without prejudging you. I’m still working on it myself. Courage!

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?

Anyone here at pwc and recently went on maternity leave? How many weeks did u take? And do you accrue pto during that time? I would think you can use disability benefits first and then add the 8 weeks parental leave and then use your pto. Just didn’t know if you still accrue during your paid leave. Thanks

In the start of busy season and my 8 month old goes to daycare 3 days a week. I feel worn down already by work & her (a single mom basically). I was looking forward to her going to daycare today because we had off and I could run errands and just have a DAY to myself.. her school was cancelled. Is it bad if I take a sick day on Wednesday just to have a mental break, alone.. I feel guilty because it’s busy season.. but I feel like I am drowning.
