It’s 8 weeks leave plus 4 more if there were complications e.g. twins or nicu stay. I took the full 8 weeks plus 4 weeks of pto all in one one - beta decision ever !

Global policy is 16weeks. With the switch to unlimited PTO, they added an additional 3 weeks if you had any leftover PTO before the PTO policy switch.

I am all for equal rights and inclusion and diversity. If we are going to have real change. I need some insights from women fish. Why is it if the internet is down, computer or TV is acting up, it is my fault because I have a penis? This holds true from a diverse set of females - my mother, wife, daughter, etc. When is this inequality going to be addressed?

I got an offer today from a firm that’s fairly new and has about 13 attorneys. Only two of the attorneys are women, and they’re both quite a bit older. I don’t think the firm has a maternity leave policy. How do I find out? I’m a 26-year-old and want to start a family soon? But I don’t want them to know that quite yet.… Advice?

Anyone had surgery to remove fibroids through laparotomy (abdominal cut) and was able to successfully get pregnant with IVF after? Did you do egg retrieval prior to or after the surgery? I’m 33 and my eggs don’t get any younger. Doctor said earliest I could get pregnant is 6 months post-op. Would prefer to do a retrieval round prior to surgery in Nov, would this make sense at all? Thank you 🙏

Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children

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.

Is it still a bad time to move to NYC? Would be WFH but wanting to get it over with and get out of parent’s house. Would be coming from FL so assuming it’ll be quite a shock moving there

Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs.

I’m pretty sure colleagues at my firm are inflating their billable hours. Is this the norm? I suspect many of you will think this is obvious and/or that I’m naive but wtf?

I don’t want to sound self-righteous but if most are lying just to make the requirement, then maybe the requirement should be lower.
