Do you lose maternity benefits if you make partner? I’m up for partnership this year and my firm doesn’t know I’m trying to get pregnant. I’ve heard people say in the past they lost all of their accrued vacation when they became partners because they are no longer employees. Do partners get paid maternity leave where you are? Would I be entitled to FMLA protection? I’m our breadwinner so losing 24 weeks of paid leave (mat+accrued vacation) would be a big hit.

Alternative is I take October and come back in November for 2 weeks to get bonus and then give notice.

I was on a friends vacation this weekend and someone in our house who is new to me (friends with the others) made two very odd anti-Semitic comments to me.

One was about whether I was being generous enough with sharing stuff (I was saving something for later and they said are you Jewish?)

And then later they said something about how the crowd at a party is all "short fat Jews"

It's not the first time in my life but I'm still surprised when it happens. These themes seem so dated. I cringed.

Got promoted to AVP (applied to join another team in the same org risk data analytics) my team members and managers are stressed because I serve on two fronts and both managers never communicate and thus they’re now realizing how much I actually do.

I have a year of experience in finance (2 years all in prof work experience) and only a BS. I feel bad that I’m leaving.

Should I feel bad? I’m questioning whether I deserve to move to AVP so quick.

I see a lot of complaints in here about how businesses are constantly shifting their priorities or forcing in-house counsel to triage resources, but that’s the gig and part of the fun.
