Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency

We have a pretty solid policy in Portland. 12 weeks for primary, & 2 weeks for secondary caregiver. Primary gets extra week for every year they’ve been at the agency, up to 6 months total. Agency also gives $1k food credit.


1 week paid plus NYS disability. It’s atrocious. We can take out PTO which is cool, but what about those days we need for school holidays? Oh and after 2 years we can apply to work from home 1 day a week. The US really needs to do something about our working moms. My old agency was amazing... 3 months paid, 3 months unpaid, 3 month flex work from home.


What agency is this?

16 weeks for all new parents (primary, secondary, adoptive)


The federally mandated minimum is most of Publicis’s policy


There are no policies. Just me constantly putting in requests and trying to chip away at them.

Anyone getting pressure from parents to drop this type of chaotic job? My younger brother (four years my junior) just had twins. I’m 38, have a gf but not yet married, and likely wouldn’t have kids for another year or so. She doesn’t like my no free time life. Many BigLaw colleagues of mine (even my age) are in the same boat. My father the other day reminded me of the classic and very dated movie Marty. “Hey Steve, you want to be Marty!? All his much younger siblings had a family/kids.” Yikes...

Any Deloitte fishes out there that have analyzed the health benefit options for Vyvanse coverage? Both me and my daughter take Vyvanse and I have been burned by plan coverage/prescription benefits in the past. I think the PPO plans actually end up cheaper, all other variables removed.

This may seem like a ridiculous question, but I genuinely don't know the answer. Am I a URM in terms of MBA apps?? My father is from the middle east and my mother is from the northern European country I live in. On top of that I was born in a different country altogether. I see on this app that some races (e.g. Indian/Asian) are actually at a disadvantage in terms of MBA apps. Where do you think I fall on this spectrum??

I just started dating someone (we've only had a few dates, taking it slow, haven't even kissed). Today is their birthday. Will be another week before we see each other again as both have kid responsibilities. Gift or no gift? I know where they work to have flowers sent, but is this necessary at this point (also, is it creepy at this stage)? I'm interested in the person, but obviously too soon to know whether I would want to date exclusively

Hey Portland!!!
Wondering cost of living in and around portland?
I’m thinking about moving from SF to Portland for a great job salary starting around 90k. I’m 30 years old with 1 child who lives with his mother.


I have a call with an agency coming up. I’ve spoken to this agency in the past and we like each other and have been waiting for the right fit. Here’s the trouble. I’m now 6 months pregnant. (Cont)

I lived in tampa in my early 20s and am now in my late 30s and looking to move back. One of the reason I left is because I felt I had too much energy for the city for a single young professional, but now husband is from there and we have a kid but we are both social people. Do you guys find it easy to meet interesting people and has the city gotten any more fun?
