What is the eligibility/requirement for maternity leave at Accenture? 1 year full time employment before you can take advantage of leave?
Sometimes it hurts to think about how well I know some airports. What terminals/airports were you frequenting before covid?
When you see “note: Public Sector staff are not eligible for these new benefits” at the bottom of the new parental leave policy email
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?
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.

Going up for promotion next year. Will it impact me to be on maternity leave for the last 2 months of the performance period or will the rest of the year speak for itself? To wait, or not to wait?!?
I wonder what this means for return to office plans.
EY maternity leave, do you get 16 weeks plus Short Term Disability? Or just the 16 weeks?
Ladies, any experience and tips for new moms going back to consulting? Is it possible to manage working while putting baby in daycare? And of course, is it possible to stay local?
There is no commentary involved in this post, just an interesting datapoint. A friend of mine from grad school now runs a funeral home in rural Colorado. This month, 7 out of her 11 “customers”are COVID deaths. What wild times we live in…
What do y’all talk to your SO about after work. With us both working from home, we are kinda in the loop of what happened all day more or less. Then at dinner we don’t want to talk about more coronavirus or work . Any ideas to get some new conversations going?
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
There's some news that researchers at PGI Chandigarh successfully developed & tested COVID-19 💉. Can anyone confirm this? I am unable to find a reliable news article but it is being broadcasted on TV
Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
My spouse and I were planning on trying for our first (IUD officially removed!!) and a few months later I decided I also needed to change jobs. Ideally I wish I’d realized sooner - but now with two potential big changes on the horizon - should I stick it out in this job just to make it doable if I get pregnant? Or gamble on both huge life changes at once?
Those with young kid(s) under 2: how do you do bedtime routine and get dinner on the table? I stop work at 6, bedtime is creeping towards 8 pm, and struggling to understand how families prep and cook dinner while tending to child plus bath plus bedtime routine and still have hot meal after kid goes to sleep. How do you all do it? Notes: husband cooks many nights but can work late until bedtime and then I have to do it all (kid and dinner). We aren’t big meal preppers…and do takeout 2x per week.
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
Just got the dreaded call from daycare that my toddler bit another kid. Any tips or resources to help with this?
Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people. This has cost me a promotion this year although I’m a high performer and my pay is at the high end of my bracket. Meanwhile, white colleagues are getting promoted each year (unheard of). I am told that i’m getting paid well so to be ‘happy’

Anyone else in the mood for a consulting freestyle battle or are you heads down in your client’s dumpster fire wondering if you really matter? What? You didn’t think a consultant could rhyme? Do you need to go back & read this one more time? Don’t be a chump or you might get a data dump into your mind. You can play with these defects cuz I’m the next in line. Watch my teams shine as we deliver these rhymes one test script at a time. 🎙👎✌️😎

PA is making me feel like I’m not as ambitious as I thought I was. Started at a local firm & moved to mid-tier as an exp associate now finding myself incredibly unhappy with life. My local firm was fine. I just don’t enjoy PA. I want to exit but only have ~10 mo. of exp at the local firm which doesn’t seem to count for anything when looking at job opps. Is it crazy to start over in industry? I know the salary/career progression is a lot slower but I don’t think I can stand PA anymore. (Cont.)
