Wife told me the other day, after a 70 hour week, that it's easier to think of herself as a single parent. That way she's less angry at my job or firm. I hate that she feels that way. 3 yrs & 4 mths.
What is the maternity leave policy at hcl? What period of time you need to work in the company to avail that?
Gearing up to burn the rest of my paternity leave (11 weeks). SM on my project thinks that’s too long to take since there’s a lot of work in our pipeline and I should consider only using half of it...
Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental ￼Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.

New mom here - ways to overcome/cope the guilt of missing work when kid is sick or missing baby when baby is sick and focusing on work ?
I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me. The to do list full of, “send emails to X about Y,” “follow-up re this,” “revise the 100 small things the baby lawyer drafted.” Tasks that might take 15 minutes to an hour individually, but all together it’s a lot. I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.
Our 5 month old started daycare about 5 weeks ago. We’ve already had to keep her home for 2.5 of those 5 weeks due to catching various illnesses (croup, rsv, brinchiolitis, etc). Both my wife and I have been sick most of that time as well (gotten it from the baby). Wife is thinking we get a full time nanny for the next 4 months to help the baby build antibodies. Cost aside, is this feasible / worthwhile to go thru the effort / finding the right fit, only for 4 months?
Planning on taking 2+ months shared parental leave. Can’t wait to have that length of time with my family, but also pushing for promotion at the same time. Any advice on how to play it/communicate it?
@Deloitte/Pwc folks: Do you need to work a certain amount of time at the firm before being eligible for parental leave?
I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?
I grew up in a low income and single parent family. Humble beginnings. Now doing an average job as an accountant. I always feel inferior and insecure during a relationship. I know it’s not good but I cannot stop feeling that way. I don’t know how to become the confident, outgoing and stress free version of myself.
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
