To all of my Deloitte Moms on here: I have to start prepping the paperwork for LoA (due April 17th), I have a few question for you: 1- when I called 1-800 DE i was told I can get short-term disability due to the surgery. Did you take advantage of this benefit and how was the paperwork process? 2- the time off for maternity leave is paid by Deloitte. Did you encounter any issues completing the paperwork? 3- did you take the combine 6 months LoA total? Tips&suggestions are welcomed! TIA!
Very niche but freelance moms in the UK - is there a way to get (federal) maternity leave benefits?

Am I crazy for thinking being a mom is harder than working in biglaw? I’m a mid level associate and FTM currently on maternity leave and the amount of sleeplessness over the past few weeks have convinced me my job is a piece of cake in comparison. I’m so overwhelmed.
We recently had a child and now looking to do some recurring investment to secure his future (higher education, marriage, medical etc), looking to withdraw 15-17 years down the lane. What type of investments do you suggest which are good from long term perspective for kids ? Or investment for higher education fund!?
My 7 week old baby!!!
I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
New EY expense policy just owned, no more Amex Plat reimbursement and mobile capped at $60 for all? WTF uncle Ernie.

Any stories of ppl leaving for unconventional exit opportunities? No longer getting enjoyment out of consulting and it seems like unless I am willing to cut my salary in half my only options are corp strategy, PE, or tech… none of which are very appealing to me so Idk what to do
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice

In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.

Thoughts on getting an MBA if you’re already in Product? 6 YOE, TC is ~250k (base + equity) so not sure the ROI would be significant just for comp alone. However, my goal is to be a product leader or even a GM of a business line at a software company, and the branding/network of a M7 MBA sounds like it could be useful.
I’m 30 years old and have been running my own (small) agency over the past two years, working with local businesses. I’ve got a solid book of client and spec work, with creative ad copy. I’ve also written for Sports Illustrated, so I can write anything from articles to ad copy. Before that, I worked in communications at a few law firms. Now I’m looking to work at an ad agency as a copywriter. Honest question: is it a reach to pursue that? And, if it isn’t a reach, do I apply for entry-level?
