I am fairly new to the US and I noticed that quite a few of my team members justify their actions if I am giving them feedback. To me it sounds like they are not really accepting the feedback. Is this normal behavior or might I be doing something wrong? Never experienced that before. I am probably pretty direct but NYC working culture doesn’t seem to be too far off from what I am used to from my home country and I always stay fact based also explaining this is an opportunity for them to improve.

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!
