Any suggestions on things you wished people had done/gotten for YOU or your partner after having a baby instead of just more baby stuff?

Need some help (!!) from the women who work in tech in this bowl. The company I work for has a parental leave policy that is only 2 weeks paid leave (pretty sad..) I am proposing we update this to be more competitive. I need other companies that are: 1. US policies 2. Funding under 200 million (not big tech)If anyone is aware of policies that would be helpful in my argument please message me or drop a comment below with: 1. Name of start-up 2. Amount of current funding 3. Parental leave policy.
I’m an associate at a small commercial lender focused firm…and I had an interview with the partner at a big law firm. He asked if I had any concerns about working in big law. I said I was worried about WLB as a mother of an 8 month old. He responded with the typical “I know plenty of female attorneys who put their kids to bed…they just work after their kids go to bed. There’s no reason to worry.” this just rubbed me the wrong way. Is this just me?? This just big law life?
This might be the MOST important and ONLY post of any true value I post this year, so please, let me know why you might agree or disagree: With all the awakening regarding employment and compensation in our business (remote, unlimited personal time off, parental leave, equal pay, etc, etc..) wouldn’t the most amazing thing we could do be to create PENSIONS? Our parents’ generation had them. Knowing there’s going to be money there when we can’t sling ads anymore could relieve so much stress now.
I'm very much an investing novice and looking for thoughts on how to maximize gains. I've had a small portfolio with schwab for a few years (intelligent portfolio on medium risk tolerance) that has been steady, but should I also be picking stocks on the side outside of their ETFs? And if so, where do you start for selection? 32 y/o with maxed out 401k if that makes a difference (though I do contribute very little for my HSA - should that be more of a thing?)

I have a 2 hour commute home. In an interview for a role, is it reasonable to ask if I’d be able to leave work an hour early every day and do an hour’s worth of work on the train home?
Just found out that one of my colleagues got promoted from AAE to SAE in one year. I’m incredibly happy for her, but I’m also feeling a little bothered since we joined the agency almost at the same time and I, on the other hand, didn’t get promoted this year (not even a pay raise). We’re on a different department (I work in Digital) and I’m happy for her but it makes me a bit uneasy. Should I be bothered? How can I be better advocate for myself during reviews?

Hello Everyone, I’m was trying to help some of our secondary RSP teachers determine what they can do with their student’s during LAB/ Study Skills Class. Some of my ideas included: Work on incomplete classwork or homework, work on goals, study for test and quizzes, work on projects, goal setting for the next semester, organize google classroom assignments or practice for the state exams. If they are other ideas I would love to hear them! Thanks everyone
Since most companies, whether it be consulting or industry, are not hiring, do you still try networking when you are looking for a new job? Or is there no point to network if there is no hiring?
Is there any interest in doing a bowl survey (for partners and/or customers)? Seeing a bunch of comp questions in other bowls and then the post here about “best” partners really got me thinking about this.

Anyone with India employment knowledge/experience? Looking for insight into the following: - How common is life insurance as an employer provided benefit and has anyone tried to get quotes on this recently?

I’m looking for multiple contract recruiters (English speaking). Any leads??
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
