Yes. 8 weeks. No. Moves promo window 1:1, but that's reasonable. Marathon, not a sprint

I took the full leave but not all at once. I found we had a ton of help right after my kid was born so I saved my time for a few months later when that help evaporated and I was able to get tons of 1:1 time with the baby. But definitely take your time Also, there’s a bowl for consulting dads.

Hi McK1 - I’m 1+2 at EM and really not concerned about ratings at all. Could make promo to AP a bit slower

Good for you! It’s so important that Fathers take parental leave too. Enjoy!

Not McK, but take the full leave. You won't regret that.

In this talent market, take the time off

Take the full leave without skipping a beat - such a special time! Enjoy!

Coming up on parental leave in March. Just got designated an EM, so that is out of the way. I’m wondering how ratings would be calibrated if I’m off from May-July (planning to take another month of PTO).

Need advice on hating your sibling’s significant other. My sister is polyamorous and bisexual (not judging- just giving perspective) and I’ve never liked the people she dates- they’ve all cheated on her or been otherwise disrespectful and treated her poorly. She is 21, and is now dating a 39 year old man who lives in an off grid cabin. From what I’ve seen he is basically a 39 year child. No responsibilities, does whatever he wants. No future plans. I’m concerned but don’t want to push her away.
