Slalom's maternity and paternity leave are well below industry average. I've heard rumors that this is slated to change but I haven't seen any action. Anyone have better Intel than nothing and rumors?

Accenture is 8 weeks for paternity if they’re the primary caregiver and it has to be in the first 16 weeks of the baby’s life

I think Accenture's paternity leave is wrong, had a manager gone for two months.

There are so many threads on this in the slalom bowl. Apparently maternity leave is going to 16 weeks as of Jan 1

Not accurate for PwC either. It's 16 / 8

A1- you can claim to me primary care giver and get 8 weeks. But if you were to take actual paternity, that’s 2 weeks. Which I think is old of crap.

Deloitte is not 22 weeks. It is 16 weeks of maternity

What’s the parental leave policy at your firm? Maternity vs paternity? Is two weeks paternity leave pretty standard?

Small rant with a small foreword that I’m so thankful that men get paternity leave. I really am. It’s just really frustrating to see the 6th person in the last 3 months come back from their leave with new certifications. It makes me feel like while I’m out on maternity leave and simply healing and feeding my baby, I’m going to be behind and asked why I didn’t gain new skills while out. I guess life isn’t fair and hope people know not to expect that from me. 😒

A few years ago I was living with my boyfriend in nyc in a cute little walk up and one bedroom. We got married and then had a baby, along with pets. cute walk up has turned in to a nightmare —we are constantly on top of each since there isn’t much space and I hate to lug the baby up/down the stairs when we go for a walk. Also stroller has to be dragged to the first floor. We wanted to move out of New York once we find job prospects but I don’t think I can tough it out anymore after one year.

Australia’s health department stated borders will most likely not open to international travelers at all this year and would most likely still require 2 weeks quarantine when they do next year. This was my one vacation I had planned right when covid hit and I was really hoping they’d open with vaccines so I could go in October, even March next year but even that seems an unlikely time to have a normal trip 🥺 i just really miss international travel
