Consulting Moms

My bonus was peanuts, impacted by my 4months maternity leave. Did you face this situation? How did you handle it?

Same here. I asked the hard questions to everyone part of the decision. It didn’t change anything

That is total BS. Is it impacted because your rating suffered or because they prorated your working time? Our bonus is not prorated for the official leave period - it is prorated for any additional extensions you take. I managed it by just talking to HR a lot and being very clear about my expectations. I confirmed before leaving how my next review would be managed and the impact on my rating. I didn’t have a an issue with it being prorated since I only took standard leave + vacation.

I thought they always prorate if you have taken family leave. Is that not true?

OW doesn’t prorate. You get 20 weeks fully paid and that all counts toward bonus as well

How should I tell my team I am pregnant? Context: I found out at the very start of the case and have kept it under wraps despite having to mute some conference calls to vom, etc. We have two weeks left and I plan to be transparent with staffing and future cases going forward, as I’m past 12 weeks, so it’s likely they would find out. I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?
