Also, are women able to take maternity leave and still have a job when they come back to MBB?

Getting let go for taking parental leave is illegal. I really hope people don't have those concerns about their employers in present day... :(

Not at MBB so wouldn’t know, but only those who have needed 6-8 weeks of medical leave or those who were aware of someone who did would be able to provide insight on this. Answers from those who just work there should be taken with grain of salt as this would obv not be written on onboarding documents

FMLA is the Family Medical Leave Act. It’s designed to protect your job if you need to be out for an extended period of time, for qualifying reasons. Injury/medical/birth all qualify.

Some questions you won’t get the answer to by asking. You need to notice this stuff by yourself. Suggest googling lawsuits...

If you take a week off MBB will take out a hit on you and sell your body for glue and shoe leather. It’s pretty well known.

guess I was trolled

though the full thought was that they would find some reason to counsel you out citing work velocity or something, obviously they wouldn't say "we are terminating you because you are using sick time"

People who aren’t at MBB wouldn’t know, and people who are in this situation aren’t the people you’re asking...it’s illegal. That doesn’t mean these things don’t happen for pregnant or disabled people often at any firm. The excuse they give is never pregnancy or disability.

Lol wtf
