Hey all, when would you say is a good time to inform your direct manager of your upcoming parental leave? Wife is expecting but not sure when I should tell my boss so we can plan on transitioning / back filing before I’m out. Thoughts please?

I have a 6 month old, and I am 6.5 years out from law school. I would like to start trying to have another kid at the end of this year but feel if I wait a couple of more years to switch firms, no one will consider me since I'll be 8.5-9 years out and trying to break into a new practice area. I am going on 36.5 years old. I don't want to leave now and tell any that I am pregnant within the first year but I also don't want to leave immediately after I return from maternity leave. I feel stuck.
HELP yes I was closing out a final deliverable all week and waited until the last minute for Mother’s Day...looking for best facial recommendations in DC/NOVA for my wife. Happy mother days day 🐠 !
Hi all! I’m doing some research on parental leave policies to make a case to improve ours. How many weeks does your policy offer? Does it differ between “primary” and “secondary” caregiver? Birth vs other means of growing your family? I’m particularly interested in independent shops, but would love to hear from folks at the network agencies as well. It you could comment with your agency name, I’d be super grateful. Thank you thank you! ❤️
Have you ever...had a parent email you asking you to come teach their kid at their house?!?!?
Today I am confronting my abusive mother with my therapist after 4 months no contact. Nervous, anxious and unsure what to expect 🙏🏼❤️
Last night I decided to leave my husband over recurring emotional infidelity. We have a one yo. I’m worried abt how this will impact my career (I’m pretty early tenure) and don’t know how I could parent without a partner as a consultant Also worried about how this will affect my finances immediately (I make more and have more in my retirement accounts) and in the long term What should my next step be? I haven’t yet told him.
Senior associate at Am 200 firm here, billing close to 190-200 a month from time to time/18-1900 a year, on partnership track, and making 230k a year. One 6 yo kid. Husband a partner at Am 200 firm and makes half to a million a year. Question: What would you do if you were me? Understood that it is funny for me to seek life advice like this, but I genuinely struggle with this and want to hear thoughts.
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.

Has anyone made a move from a boutique firm to Big Law, regretted it, stuck it out, and found success? I am in the ‘regretted it’ phase, but it may be culture shock.

Curious to know if anyone who’s moved from EM/PL/AP MBB role is happy? Moved to an S&O role at Meta and I’m struggling to see much benefit other than better WLB/less pressure. S&O in tech feels second-class citizen (lower influence), work isn’t as meaningful, slower and less clear career growth, slower comp trajectory. Feels like the only worthwhile move is to Product but curious to hear if G is better.
Which is better: Booz Allen commercial cyber or Accenture commercial cyber from a culture and benefits perspective?
