Since covid started I’ve been working with a team of doctors and scientists to develop a self contained rapid antigen test. Trials run by the cdc and NY health and hospitals have shown it’s as reliable as a pcr test but results come back in 15 min. We are looking to get the test into the market by the holidays but are in need of capital. Does anyone here have access to family offices or something similar?
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
Need some advice! I’ve been in a serious relationship for a year. I grew up in a traditional south Asian family where no one discussed relationships. My older sister never introduced any of her boyfriends when she dated them either. But when my parent got divorced, my mom became way more open minded about things. So I want to tell her about my boyfriend. I’m still kind of nervous though. Anyone gone through something similar/any tips to navigate the conversation? Going to see her later today.
Currently on parental leave. As a father I’m so dang thankful my firm has it and I can’t imagine how my immigrant parents manage to raise two kids without leave.
I think it might be stressing my wife out, but there’s not much in life that I want anymore. I have everything I need. The only thing I wanted for Father’s Day is to stay in bed for an hour with a cup of coffee.
We broke 3,000 COVID deaths today in an awful benchmark that looks to be topped tomorrow. Don’t let any Trump supporter say they’re pro-life. Wear a mask and get tested. https://t.co/7cNPfiIuy9
Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)!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.

Is it OK to go to certain events while on parental leave? I am not doing casework but I also don’t want to miss out on a key training that is rarely offered, for example. Or annual practice meetings
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.

Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Have you been seeing any creativity lately around gender inequity, child abuse, LGBTQ, PETA, guns rights, or other cause related marketing? Why not? Because none of them are trending at the moment?
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?

Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies. He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?

Been on mat leave since March and plan on going back in September. What do I tell co workers (friends at work) who keep asking when I will be back? Should I be honest or just stall? I am feeling super guilty about being on mat leave
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
3 months into WFH and I (and my admin) are all of the sudden making mistakes like never before. Nothing minor, but definitely not on our usual game. I think it is due to the lack of ability to talk with partners and staff in person and sync up. Anyone else experiencing this?
I currently make 60LPA in Hyderabad and my firm has an offer for 150k in Chicago. Is it worth? I am generally happy with the package in India and have good savings as I own my house in Hyderabad and I am not a lavish spender. I have been onsite in US previously with an allowance but I did not go crazy over the so called American experience. Single earner with one kid.

Qq - I recently noticed that I am missing an old (not current) i-797 approval notice. I have the scanned (soft) copy but not the original notice. Do we need older notices for any future filings (e.g. green card, AOS filing, naturalization etc.)? Wondering if I should order a copy or not needed.
