Hello Ladies! I’ve had a strong desire these past few years to switch from the Aerospace and Defense industry over to consulting. I have finally entered the market to search for a new role, and I had a question about benefits. As a newlywed, I would like to start a family soon and wonder which consulting organizations offered great benefits in terms of maternity leave and health coverage?

Many firms require you to work for 1 year before maternity leave kicks in. Just something to consider as your searching/planning.

Thanks for the insight. I was hoping to start a family within the next 2-3 years.

Deloitte offers almost 6mo maternity and eligibility starts day 1

I’ll also add that I think a lot of firms are starting to recognize that there aren’t many females in A&D and are starting to offer better maternity benefits to attract female talent. It’s gotten much better in the last 5-10 years

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

Trying to figure out how to manage health issues and work balance.

Due to stigmas around something as common as herpes I cannot comfortably share that with my team.

I am coming to the conclusion that saying you won't raise your kids in any one religion and let your kids decide when they're older is simply a means of punting on dealing with coming from competing faith traditions (because you fundamentally cannot mix the two religions) in your own interfaith marriage at present. It's just pure conflict avoidance strategy in one's own marriage rather than a decision on how children will be raised. Am I right or wrong? Discuss...
