How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)
What's your firm's parental leave policy? Like how many weeks? Is it different for moms and dads (or primary vs. non-primary)? Wife and I are planning to have kids in the next two years and want to be in the best situation possible.
Does anyone know how parental leave affects the year end rating process if at all? Do you still go through the process as normal?
Have a feeling I’m pregnant with second and am actually too scared to find out. My first just turned one and we are finally JUST starting to hit a groove (but he still doesn’t sleep through the night). Also, we JUST moved states. Ah, just so scared tbh even though we were trying for a second. Has anyone else felt this? What is the real experience of becoming a second time mom? Two under two?
Hey fishbowl fam! Have any of you recommended one of your students for Kumon, or put your personal child into their program? What are your thoughts from a teacher & parent perspective?

PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis

Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!
Husband found out that his fed job that he was hired into with the promise that he’d receive paternity leave will not let him use his paternity leave because he hasn’t worked for government for a year yet. But baby arrived a few months before he started his fed job. Is he still eligible for paternity leave when he’s been at the job for a year?
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
Do you pass the rat race onto your child? Do you feel like you have to grind to get your child the best resources, schools, etc?
ACN 🐠’s, what is your parental leave program? And do you have a leave of absence program for non-parental leaves?
Question for EY moms - my husband and I are thinking about starting a family soon, so I was looking up the parental leave policy to see what my options are. I know some firms have clawback clauses that require you to come back to work for a specific period of time or else you have to pay back the salary you received while on leave, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the EY policy. Does this mean EY doesn’t have a clawback clause for parental leave, or is it just hidden away somewhere? TIA!

Decision time: I got offered a position with EY and also got an offer from a mid-tier firm. The mid-tier is paying about $14k more than the Big 4. Is it wise to just not consider the pay difference and just go Big 4 to have it on my resume? I could negotiate but I feel like the answer will be no.
2nd year consultant with an MBA looking for exit opps. Where can I go that has TC that exceeds $225k? Also, my background is in industrials and it’s making the jump go tech or product management hard. Any advice?
128k for a newly promoted manager in advisory risk cyber tier 1 city (masters with no MBA) and about 3 years relevant work experience in the US and 2 irrelevant work exp overseas, fair pay?
How does one get into advisory without already being in big 4 or having a narrow industry focus? All of the postings I see are for very specific IT related positions.
Any recommendations for books or materials to prepare for Amazon or FAANG product (technical) manager roles? I’m assuming this was asked many times, I haven’t had luck locating ideal threads but will keep looking as well! Any advice would be appreciated 🙂
Finally got my YE! Was hoping to at least get a 3 after hearing about all the layoffs and the 4's going around. Got a 2 and I am EXTREMELY relieved! 🙌🏻🎉 Now I can really start my weekend! 😎🍾
Managers, do you feel it's the stronger performers who are less likely to take advantage (book later morning flights and earlier go home flights)? I've been noticing this a lot from my mediocre ppl.
