Maternity leave is the statutory leave that you get irrespective of time spent in the organisation. Accenture also allows additional leave

What country are you in? You should reach out to your HR contact or look it up on the portal.

I’m in UK so cannot find the documents in our portal for US but I searched in the Accenture bowl and it looks like it is 16 weeks that you can take as soon as you join the firm as long as birth date is after your start date.

Depends honestly which country you live in what the benefit is exactly. Which country?

Currently 25 with 2 kids. The 1st one is 4yr old and the 2nd one is 8month old. Currently making a combined income of 285k with my wife. We have about 344k net worth. 401k & Megaback door Roth is max out. Not a fan of 529, because college can be free if you put in the work. Our only debt is our mortgage $1400monthly. We also have a brokerage account where we invest about 10k monthly in stocks. Looking to buy rentals, but we feel like stocks is the way to go for now.

At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis

Has anyone heard of the Natalist? I found their Parent Plans book but the only reviews are directly on their site. Alternatively, are there any recommendations for books my husband and I can read to begin preparing to have a child? I can’t just get pregnant and figure it out, I need to try to go in informed (understanding that there’s no way to truly prepare). Expecting Better and Crib Sheets have very polar reviews and don’t quite fit the bill for me. TIA!

Consulting vets, normal? I was lured into consulting and lost benefits due to the challenging transformation program being right up my alley.

A few months later I get involved in spending nights and weekends for 3 weeks making a 60+ page deck. Company wins part of the contract and hires 12 more. Since then I have been ignored by them. No bonus!

How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
