Should be sure to look into individual policies before signing on the dotted line. I know many companies won’t let you take paid leave with less than 1 year of service.

Exactly, most of my concern is around this point. Would you bring this up during interviews? Reach out to target company HR before applying?

Yes you should be fine. Might need to be flexible with timing depending on when you start your leave.

I was told that I won’t be considered for my promotion to SM this year end because I’m on maternity leave. This sounds sketchy given that I did everything in my power to prepare before I went on mat leave. Now I’m pushing my coach and leadership to let me go up for promotion in an off cycle promotion. Is this fair and normal or is this a sign I need to look for a new job and resign? I feel like I’m being punished for being on maternity leave.

Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name.

Hi moms - Can anyone share what you do with 2 - 3 YO on weekends? We are usually catching up on house chores and I feel my kid runs aimlessly around the house most of the day. We try to take a hike, go for the library or playground but with pandemic we have limited to only these 2 activities. My kid is terrified of people, going out after being locked inside the house for more than a year. We took him to the beech, play area with kids and he kept yelling back home the entire time.

The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…

Hey Fam. Spouse & I have been planning to start trying to conceive this year & specifically this month (27 and 28). Has anyone else felt very ready to start a family but when it’s time to start trying, start second guessing if you’re ready and thinking about all of the pros and cons. Should we wait another year? What if we have trouble getting pregnant and kick ourselves for waiting? Will people see us more as just parents and not as much for our successful careers we work so hard for?
