How much paternity leave does your firm offer?
What’s the general cash/ investment split for you? I’m 100k in cash, 20k in 401k and 15k in stocks. No debts. Is that a decent mix or should I be putting more in the market and less cash?
If you’d have to explain the 1x1 of investment to someone that doesn’t know a thing, what would you say? Where tf do I start? What apps do I use? How much money do I need? Checking in from Germany, so 401k etc. are not an option here.
A friend who was on H1B did a CoS to B2 to deal with her divorce and health. She’s done and ready to get back to work. If she gets a company willing to transfer her H1B, will she need to leave the country to get the H1B stamp? If the stamp isn’t possible with the latest EO, will she be able to work with just the transferred H1B? Anyone with experience with CoS from B2 to H1B?
Anyone else feel like they’re crawling up the walls lately? I was fine with WFH/quarantine for the most part until the week after thanksgiving and since then I feel like my mental health has gone from good to bad and I’be never had mental health issues before. Feel unmotivated, crabby and have the urge to cry often. I’ve been staying with my parents mostly since March and last night I basically exploded about how I can’t take it anymore.....
I’m extremely burnt out, exhausted, and my mental health is plummeting by the day. I know this is happening across all agencies and I’m ready to change it up and go in-house. Any suggestions for best in-house place to work?

What is the best form of exercise in terms of health and fitness and convenience? I've heard swimming, rowing, running and biking are the best. Each has pros and cons
Do we know if there is a sponsoring partner that oversees this benefit/ program that I could have more of a heart to heart conversation with? Not getting too far with the general email box and admin contact. From the benefit policy documentation, my understanding is that EY reimburses employees for surrogacy / adoption related expenses up to $50k lifetime. However, anything related to IVF or medical procedures has to go through insurance (also limited to $50k lifetime benefit). Continued…
Is saving $2k/month cash or $24k/year outside of 401k savings considered a good amount? Trying to save up for an emergency fund/stay liquid till I can go offense for a good investment.

Do you have to prove how old your infant is in order to get maternity or paternity leave and is there a limit? My husband and I would like to stagger our leave.
Deloitte 🐠: noop question. Do i still need to add the Vanguard account into Tracking and Trading if i have funds and stocks with them beside 401k ?

I think firms should seriously consider raising the associate salaries for NY (and maybe LA) offices. It makes no sense that we are paid the same as Houston and Chicago associates.

This dude who is poly said he loves cooking and his love language is acts of service. He’s a mutual acquaintance I just met. I’m the opposite of poly and it’s not a secret. He cooked a meal and left it on my doorstep because I’ve been sick. I didn’t know he was gonna do that. As a friend gesture it was kind if him. But IS IT a friend gesture, knowing what I know of him? I wanna be courteous. But I’m not sure how to read this or how to clarify it without risking embarrassment either way???
