SA1 - tell me another consulting firm that provides 16 weeks of fully paid maternity/paternity/sick family leave and then I'll believe your snide little comment.

Yes, fully paid entire time, with benefits. Combo of CA leave time (4 weeks pre-baby + 6-8 weeks post delivery) with Deloitte's 16 weeks plus 10 weeks PTO saved up. Continue to accrue PTO when on leave 👍🏻Paid at new salary when promo is effective (~Late Aug). I've been blown away by all of this. Deloitte is the place to be for moms! @deloitte5 C to SC

8 months? I have been taking my 16 weeks at Deloitte but not 32. How did you swing that?

@pwc1 do you still accrue vacation while on leave? 12 weeks paid + 5 weeks vacation + 1 week of holidays = 18 weeks..how do you get to 6 months? Just curious as I'm considering if I should stay at PwC when I have kids in the near future :)

PwC 1: PwC policy is 12 weeks paid maternity leave and 6 weeks paid leave for paternity leave. So it's still short no matter how you look at it

8 months would not be fully paid the entire time. After 6 months you have to start paying your own insurance costs (unless you're on your husband's insurance elsewhere).

@pwc1 how does the 6 month maternity leave work?? Use all vacation?

@p2, yep.
