Do you have to spend a certain number of months at PwC before you get their parental leave benefits?
I visited a friends that has a 1 year old baby. She asked me if I wanted to get a dog, and then asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. She said it was a good way to start carrying for something else and get experience for the future. I think this is hillarious I don’t see how a dog or a plant will fulfill my life. 😂
What is staff aug? Explain it to me like I’m a child. Coming from industry, I’ve never heard of it.
What is the extent of details revealed in a background check? If I left voluntarily vs was let go - does that show up in a background check? Long leave of absence say 6 months (health or parental leave or just personal leave) - does that show up? Which specific teams I worked with or what kind of projects I worked on? Past promotion dates?
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Need some advice from the mamas here! Want to buy a baby gift for my step sister that’s a little more thoughtful or higher quality than what’s on the registry (most of it has been bought already anyway). I’m 26 though so I have no idea what’s actually useful for a new mom! Any ideas?
I have a toddler and baby. Toddler was always home due to pandemic and started preschool. He brings sickness home every week and we are all sick miserable. Thanksgiving was worst as baby ended up hospitalized and I have zero family support. I am so traumatized and couldn’t bring myself to send older to preschool again with covid fear of my kids. Can some experienced mamas share your wisdom on how you managed sickness , covid fear and do right by the kids
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! ❤️
Moms, any tips on baby led weaning? Our 7 month old picks up food and throws it on the floor every single time :(

So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
Hello! Can other moms share their experience with night nurses? What are the costs (We live in MCOL area— Atlanta), was it worth it if you breastfed baby, etc? Do they clean and do laundry? None of my friends have ever gotten one so we don’t know what to expect! TIA 🙏🏻

Did your job change after mat leave? Going on Mat leave soon and manager is thinking of bringing in a new PM to handle my vertical and having me switch to a new one. I work on enterprise connecters currently in the iPaas space and would switch to Platform, which is totally different. On one hand its a good career move & valuable experience that I couldn't interview for without prior experience. On the other, scared to move into a new area outside comfort zone with a new baby and mom brain.
How many of you are sending your kids to daycare? I’ve been on maternity leave and joining in the next few weeks. Planning to send the toddler to daycare and keep the baby home but freaking out if we get the virus home. We have pretty much been home these last few months. But I don’t know how me and my husband could possibly manage both kids while working from home. Anyone keep two kids home and manage work? Any tips ...
Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!
Help. Beginning of a nasty divorce. Two children 3 and under. Father moved long distance so I’m basically single mom but he’s instigating super nasty custody battle. I haven’t had a decent nights sleep in probably a year and a half (since before I got pregnant the second time). I’m so wrung out. I’m working full time - trying to adjust my schedule but harder to get that through than it looks. I have a small village which I’m using to the max. Going to therapy twice a week. Continued in comments…

Had a great informational interview with a managing director last week. I mentioned that I applied for a position within the company and he said he could fast track the application for me. I sent him my resume at his request. I want to follow up. Is it too soon given that we met last week? Also, assuming he was genuine, I want to update him on what I've done since our chat and ask about how to prepare for any upcoming discussions/case interviews? Am I being too pushy? Thx

How would you handle not getting a bonus or a raise this year even if you outperformed expectations? I really like my job and the work, but my comp is not matching my responsibilities and performance imo. Partner has ducked me for the last week trying to have a meeting about 2020 productivity.
