Is it terrible that I hope my firm doesn't match so we can start to see the exodus of associates that is overdue here? Morale is low. We are never the first mover on comp but our PPP is at a record high. The corporate group forced two female associates to come back early from maternity leave to help with year end closings. I hope this place burns.

Out this firm. It should be unacceptable to force associates back from leave.

A11, FMLA only covers 3 months. Firms offer more maternity leave than FMLA covers.

Is it legal to force someone to come back early from maternity leave. I thought that part of the time was protected by state law in some states

Got a healthcare hedge fund analyst offer with 150K base and up to 250K bonus. With comp increase potential but no clear path to be promoted to portfolio manager given the fund size. I have 6 YOE in consulting and a PhD in life sciences. Lifestyle is not much better than consulting. The hiring manager tried to convince me with “long-term upside” but of course cannot commit to anything given the fund is new. Thinking I should turn it down but wonder how others think
