How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?

Prorated at most firms. Some firms will even pay you the full amount if you meet prorated hours

When I was an associate it was a one-way ratchet (in a good way). So if you took 1 month leave the lowest you could get was 11 months bonus, but if you hit your hours anyway you got a full bonus.

So bonus is prorated regardless of how many hours you hit?l at most firms?

At my firm bonus is not prorated, the hours are. If you are on pace while you are working, you get your normal bonus. However, we are also black box so it’s not lockstep. But my bonuses each year I was on parental leave were pretty much the same as every other year .

Thoughts - my kid got selected in a gifted program and it’s 1.5 hour drive from our house. We also have a baby who goes to daycare near our house( 15 mins ). Is it worth to send my preschooler to the gifted program ? It’s only for 6 months and after that my baby would go to daycare near the preschool itself. I am just not sure whether a 1.5 commute in morning and evening is worth the school for 2’kids to go through and will reduce our family time everyday.

Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

Any advice for negotiation? I made the mistake of letting slip my current salary to the recruiter and now I’m in final rounds at FB and the recruiter disclosed the salary for the position. It seems to be quite below industry average based on Glassdoor and other sources, but I know once given the salary it’s hard to negotiate at FB. I recently got a title change at my current company, and possible salary increase, so I was thinking of using that to counter. Never negotiated before!
