In the process right now - have not disclosed to anyone on my project but I let my HR partner know and they support me in leaving and in not informing my project leadership until 2 weeks before I leave.

I haven’t but I know people who have. Not sure why you’d need to disclose the specifics especially if it’s unpaid leave. What level are you if you don’t mind me asking? I recall it wasn’t uncommon for certain level staff to take a sabbatical when I was at PwC.

Call you loa hotline and take it from there. Disclosing to your project team that you declared going on STD is only a curtesy. The hotline people will explain all that to you. Source - my own leave at your firm.

You don’t have to disclose anything, that said, you can disclose what you feel comfortable with. You can simply say “I will be taking a leave. I’ve set up xyz to transition. “

You don’t have to disclose the nature for medical leave. HIPPA protects you. Unfortunately with mental health, disclosing may come with stigma/minimizing.

My firm recently merged with another firm, and it is starting to feel distinctly more “corporate.” All of their decisions are metric-driven now—billables, realization rates, client and matter origination, business development hours. I’m missing the community feeling of the old firm, when I was more than just a number. Any advice on how to adapt? Is this just COVID burnout?

I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas.

Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
