EY expecting moms who are due in 2021: How will the new vacation policy impact maternity leave? I was banking on extending leave with accrued paid vacation time, is that no longer possible? Trying to talk to someone from the leave team ASAP but wondering if anyone might have some insight on how best to get the most out of maternity leave with the new policy.

The FAQ say you can tack on 3 additional weeks of flexible vaca to the end of your leave 👏 👏 👏

Great! I was worried they wouldn't provide any paid time off. Although I was planning to tack on way more than 3 weeks because I was planning to use all my rolled over time and accrued time so that's kind of a bummer but I guess I should start using it now to prepare for baby instead of after for when baby is here. Would've definitely preferred to use all the time when the baby was here :/

Yep I hear ya. But now think about when you’re back 3 weeks and baby has their first cold. No big deal, take the time you need. I’m a fan of the change, I know the EY bowl is irate.

I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.

I have this problem that I picked up from my father growing up: can’t effectively communicate negative feelings to people that I’m close with. I sort of expect them to know, and when they don’t get it or don’t show efforts that I’m expecting to receive, I start to distance myself from them and shut down. I started to reflect back on why I do this, and sense that this is some kind of a sick way of showing I have more power over the other person. How can I fix this?

Currently a few weeks left on parental leave and have had a potential opportunity come up with a smaller firm that I think makes more sense for my career goals. The question I have is: assuming I get an offer and the details work out, how do I navigate leaving? Should I provide notice right away? Go back to my current firm for a couple weeks and then give notice? I certainly don’t want to burn bridges. How would you feel on the other side?
