Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary).

Fishies, I need your help. I received an offer for $160k from guidehouse. I’m currently paid $133k at EY.

SEEKING OPINIONS & FEEDBACK: I love the honest & practical discussions here, where people can freely identify things that are going on & seek guidance.

My wife and I just had a baby boy and are getting a lot of pressure from her family to get him circumcised. Not for religious reasons but for social ones, they are worried he wouldn’t fit in. I am opposed to doing this our pediatrician said there was no appreciable health benefit and that today it is about 50/50 circumcised vs not in the US (much lower circumcision rates elsewhere) Is there something I am missing here?

For example, I'm a serious musician and play in competitions and gigs; I also have some leadership experience from college that was pretty extensive (used it for all my job interviews) but hasn't continued since then.

Hi, what salaries can you expect as MBB project manager to tech (e.g., Dell, Oracle,..)?
Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?
