I can’t speak for your financial situation but if you can avoid it, just spend as much time as possible with your kid (and partner) because you’ll never get it again.

I picked up a well-paying freelance producer job while I was on leave. It helped alleviate some of the financial stress for sure and made me feel a little more sane. The hardest part was finding time to pump.

Depending on your skill set you could try some remote design work or consulting.

First of all OP. What is it that you can do? “Manager” doesn’t really give us anything to go off of.

Paid leave?

The first few months are draining. Be ready to work in a zombie state.

Technically if it's paid leave can't you get in trouble for double dipping? Or not paid leave? I don't care either way, just be careful of that is all. Good luck!

Typically a paid leave is basically short term disability. Therefore it would be illegal to work. If it’s unpaid I would look into your state laws regarding the topic.

You don’t have to take leave. If you want to want to work just come back early.

Any Idea by when FIS Pune will end WFH?

My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours. They were supportive early in my career and when we had one child, but our second was born a couple of years ago and all the additional work they put in at home, the lack of family time and lack of couples time is becoming a big strain on our marriage. We are in a high cost of living city so will have to undergo a major lifestyle change if we forego my biglaw..

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

My full time job (not SMU) is literally making me sick-spent time at the ER. One associate quit and another is out of full paid parental leave (must be nice, I’m not paid for doing double the work)…so I’m now expected to do the work of 3 associates. My supervisor isn’t exactly understanding, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching for jobs, but it’s difficult since my background is diverse and not focused on one area of law. If I quit, how hard is it to find a new job?
