As for whether the OP needs to find another job, it seems the definition of "OP" isn't the only aspect of modern life you're unacquainted with. The OP is very welcome to continue her career at Oliver Wyman as a mother (if indeed the OP is a woman and is pregnant -- noting that the OP did not directly state as such, though it is strongly implied).

Yeah I checked the handbook this weekend after this exchange; its 12-14 weeks paid plus I think up to 6 weeks paid after. 6-8 was 100% pay on short term disability, plus 6 weeks paid parental leave (the latter running concurrently with fmla), and then up to 6 weeks unpaid with the rest of fmla. It's confusing, but I think they have to cobble it together that way because in MA legally they can't offer more parental leave just to women (so they use short term disability to get around it).

I'd be very surprised if it's unpaid. Check back with HR. If it is, we need to make a stink about it and make sure it's changed!!!

The HR person I asked pointed me to the employee handbook and says unpaid for MA. Is it different by state?

4 months paid or 5 months paid if you've been here longer than 5 years. Can do up to 1 year with benefits/insurance paid - last 7-8 months would be no salary.

OP I'm in MA and it is definitely paid - I would circle back with HR (I haven't taken it but a friend definitely took the six weeks paid for paternity)

And brush up on your FMLA language when you talk to them again

Also entitles you to the leave if you're eligible dol.gov/whd/fmla/

Not related to tech but looking for some female feedback. My side gig is making handmade jewelry. I'm looking to buy better shopping bags (not meh retail plastic bags) my question is a) for a small business how important is having a bag with a design vs plain? b) brown vs white vs color? and c) logo vs no logo? Plain bags run around $0.20-$0.60/bag and logos run about $2/bag. My average purchase is around $20 so packaging can be a significant portion of the overhead.

This has been a hard year. I landed in the hospital right before covid and was on bedrest for 3 weeks. I’m the typical type A psycho who needs to be perfect at everything (work, grad school, even raising a puppy). I’m in my mid 20s and work with a bunch of old men and take so much shit with a smile all the time. Underneath the surface I have severe anxiety disorder and body dysmorphia that impacts my day to day. Being at home 24/7 is ruining me. I’m just tired of all of it.
