Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Let's do a salary thread for parental leave policies: Post your firm’s parental leave policy. Fishbowl will circulate the data once we've reached 25 responses, so make sure to share with your coworkers.
Anybody’s mom and husband don’t get along? Lol running out of ideas to have them get along. I have a newborn and my mum is here to help with him, and she and my husband don’t get along. Love my husband, he’s great and very helpful with the baby and for me as well in terms of emotional support (postpartum has been harder on me than I thought) but he and mum don’t see eye to eye. Some points of difference- mum is super religious whereas he’s atheist etc etc
Mom here with one kid, looking for a reliable and low maintenance car. Would a Tesla 3 be a good choice? I had a bad accident and I am traumatized to drive since then :( also, hesitating with an SUV like the Audi
I’m up for promotion next year (will find out around February next year) and expecting my first baby in April. I get 16 weeks maternity leave and also considering whether to tack on a 3 month sabbatical or not. Should I take the sabbatical? I get 1/3 of my salary and can only use the sabbatical once every 5 years so I’m thinking it’s probably very unlikely I could take 3 months off in my career 5 years later….(cont)
Thoughts on this?
Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays
I received an offer from Deloitte as a Consultant - the offer letter didn’t specify amount of PTO. Should I clarify this with the recruiter or is it standard at every level?
This virus is not a joke people. It killed a healthy actor, 41, who has a 1-year old child.
Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?
When your S.O. has a bad day and stress bakes some cookies, you eat 2 of them and say they're great even though they're way overcooked and stiff. Everyone enjoy the holiday weekend!
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 need advice, has anyone been in a similar sit? Met a guy on Bumble in March. He had gotten out of a 4 year relationship in December. We dated for 2 ish weeks, on date 3 we made out and touched (no sex but we both came). After the date he tells me he needs time to himself, his mind is all over the place. We’re May and he reached back out (to congratulate me for my sisters baby). Said he’s in a much better place mentally, wants to meet up. CONTd in comments
How long do you have to be at your company to qualify for their maternity / paternity leave policy?
My firm is implementing an unlimited PTO policy so for those of you who’s companys already have it - do you like it, how does it work, and what is the max number of days that you would take off?
Is it possible to breastfeed only if you get a baby nurse? I am due in December and contemplating getting a baby nurse, but want to know if baby nurses make more sense if you’re pumping or giving formula.
What are some productive things you did during your paternity/maternity leave? I’m thinking about taking a post grad class to keep active. Another option I am considering is researching startup ideas
Ladies, do you typically negotiate your salary with mid-sized firms before accepting the lateral offer? If so, who do you negotiate that with (e.g., HR or hiring partner)?
Anyone know anything about the culture at slack? Looking for a place with a healthier work life balance. Willing to leave consulting.￼￼
Does anyone here hold a non-CFA designation (CFP, CAIA, FRM etc.) and what kind of role/position do you have?
If you're in expected promotion year, but talk about it a lot with your coach & team, get great reviews at beginning of year, does that cement it barring really bad feedback? Will be 11 months in team

How do I handle working for a partner who does everything at the last minute? So far I’ve been handing in my drafts a few weeks early and then sending follow-up emails reminding her of the upcoming litigation deadlines. We have to get extensions and/or work at the last minute sometimes. Apparently the firm is well aware of her flaws. I wasn’t doing much work for this partner until her associate was terminated a few months ago. I hate working like this. Do I keep nagging her about deadlines?
Anyone have any recommendations on cities to temporarily move to while working remote? Living at home and over it and would like to switch up my environment for a month or two.
Ill say it again, we should start considerin splitting the Union. There is a minority of the US who wants a mad man in charge. There is very little reason for the majority to abide by this.
