Planning to move to Deloitte in next couple of months. Can any of you please help me with the parental leave policy? How much is it and can you take it within 6 months or so of joining ?
I use my lunch hour to pick my kids up from school but one day my boss tried to put an impromptu meeting on at that time and I mentioned it wasn’t a good time for me as I’m in the middle of child hand-off during my lunch time and don’t have aftercare reopened yet. She immediately responded that I have to have that in my contract and to put it on my entire team’s calendar. I don’t see that as necessary since my kids are older middle school/high school. Is that legal to mandate it be contractual.
What would you do if you were out on a parental leave for 12 weeks? (Besides taking care of your newborn) Taking ideas!
What do you do with your free time over the weekend? I recently quit consulting to get a job with a standard schedule. I don’t have kid care or dating needs, tapped out on plants, home remodeling, drinking and eating out. Looking for other ways to make the weekends fun. Please share how you spend your weekends! 😀
Anyone at RSM know how long you have to be at the firm to be eligible for the parental leave benefit?
Thinking of going to Alaska in July for a week. 1. Is it worth going if on a tight budget? It seems that many of the excursions there are $500+. I'm definitely not looking to spend that much, more in the $50-75 range for an excursion. 2. My wife will be 6 months pregnant. Is there a lot to do considering that (obviously we won't be able to do long hikes etc).
I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.
Has anyone had a parent pass away while working and how much time did you take off afterwards? Was it vacation/personal time or leave of absence?
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
Any tips for how to get a kid to stop lying? My 5 yo is lying all the time and we are at a loss. She’s not a good liar yet, which is our saving grace bc we can generally tell when she is lying. But she’s getting better. 🙁 We’ve talked about not being able to trust her, given consequences … nothing seems to resonate. Ideas?
My ex wife with whom I share custody of my 14 year old daughter has a live-in boyfriend who recently lost his mother and has developed a drinking problem. For the second week in a row I’ve had to pick up my daughter from their apartment because they were fighting and screaming at each other. Last time (1:30 AM Friday morning) he had physically assaulted my ex wife and then threatened to kill himself. I thought surely my ex wife would have kicked him out at least and better yet gotten a contd.
I recently had a miscarriage but I didn't know I was pregnant should I tell my boyfriend I don't want him to think I'm broken so I don't know. We've been together for 3 years and he is an awesome guy but I haven't been able to have sex with him lately because I'm not ready and the doctor said to take some time... he thinks that I'm rejecting him but I don't know if I should tell him what I'm going through. Its been three weeks. And I was five weeks.
had a miscarriage with a genetically normal embryo with a heartbeat at 9 weeks. I’ve successfully had a baby before so not sure what’s going on. have an appointment scheduled with a RE but so sad. any suggestions on what to do next time? I did get a massage-avoided my lower hack -and i’m so nervous that thus caused it.
My friend just had a baby. I want to get her some meals for the next few weeks, so she doesn't have to worry about cooking. Any ideas?
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...

Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.

I don’t think I have enough saved (80-100k) to justify a financial advisor. But I also was never taught/learned about money management and planning. Are there any good resources or books in which I could learn about how to invest in my retirement?
If ur doing implementation work at MBB, how easy is it to transfer into strategy at MBB?
Maybe I'm too much of a economist/ accountant but I don't believe the wage gap in the US is accurate. I believe it has more to do with career choices and the % of women who stop working to raise a fam

I have 2years left before I reach the rule of 85 and can fully retire. (In NE, your age plus years of service must equal 85 to qualify for early retirement). I will be 54 years old. Anyone out there who has retired from teaching at an early age also? I am looking for the pros and cons and things to consider when trying to decide if that move is best for me. I am a single mom, so do not have a dual income in my house. Thanks for any and all tips and advice you can give.

General thoughts on switching from consulting to a pre sales solution consultant role at a SAAS tech company? Has anyone here done that? Tired of being sooo in the details in consulting.

Doing some benchmarking as we revisit our leave policy. Do any of your firms offer external career coaching for transitioning into / then back from parental leave? Any organizations you’d recommend or things you’ve found to be particularly helpful / successful? Thank you!
I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?
BONUS SEASON! Now that I have your attention, I’m a Big Law baby. I joined a BL firm in March, so I haven’t lived through year-end bonuses before. Is there a predictable timeline for expecting bonus announcements? Do most firms give a set bonus per class year, or is it traditionally more discretionary? I would imagine that giving each associate a discretionary bonus would be too time-intensive, but what do I know. (Also, any inside scoops?) In the words of Cousin Greg, muchly appreciated.
Are there any recommendations to study for the PSO cloud consultant case study interview?
