Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?

Yes I think so

Most of the Indian service based companies have a limited benefits when it comes to parental leaves especially for a father. Just curious what was the motivation behind this question ?

From my personal experience my team is pretty flexible with this. Before joining Google, I worked at TCS and Oracle India. Both the companies had no concept of paternity leave. It was a 1 week leave at max. On the other hand Google provides 3 months of paternity leave along with Baby Bonding Bonus to be used to get domestic help which gives new parents more time with their little one.

I think paternal leave is lacking in many ways, mostly the culture around it in the office.

Earlier this week I was so busy I only pumped three times when I normally pump 6 times. Since then my milk supply fell drastically where I only pump 2 oz each session even if I pump 30 minutes when before I’d be pumping 3.5-5 oz in 15, and it’s been 4 days already. I know it’s silly but I feel sad thinking I won’t be able to feed my baby sufficiently with breastmilk anymore. I’ll supplement but I felt happy being able to provide full breastmilk before and feel a sense of loss now. Just venting

Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
