First it was paying down student debt (for 2016 associates) and now there’s a benefit for females back from maternity leave. How about a perk for those who make this firm $$ now w/ 15 hr work days?

That "benefit" for maternity leave is 12 weeks of leave for mothers of a newborn. Hardly call that a benefit. Let’s see you physically bear someone into this world… and then you’ll get your “perk.”


Ok considering our firm is one of the few ones that offers paid paternity leave in the U.S. You have nothing to complain about. Also last time I checked mothers and debt riddled students are working


The debt pay down is not only for associates starting in 2016. It's for everyone it just doesn't start until next summer


Wait, so the debt pay down is only for associates starting 2016? If that's true kind of ridiculous.

Those same insane hours too... Also with your bonus rate if you're actually working well not just long then you have nothing to complain about. Loser

Meanwhile back in the real world, we call them "women."

I told him he was network/friend-zoned, but he keeps asking personal questions. What’s the kindest way to tell someone you don’t want to be friends?
