So EY gives up to 16 weeks parental leave now... If you have a kid at the beginning of busy season do you still get promoted?

Is this maternal or both maternal and paternal ?

You get promoted when you're ready, not because of time put in. That said, if you deserve it and you can make a business case for it- yea of course you would get promoted .

If you're on the fence, I can't imagine missing a busy season where you can really make a case for promotion through good work will help. The firm will give you the time off, but you can't expect the same results as others who work through the busiest times of the year. Parental leave is not a free pass.

Yes

Not planning on it, just curious how it'd work

They give you all these time but nobody uses because people never have time to make babies! 😒😒😒😒

I’m terrified of pregnancy but not of motherhood (except for the noise, kids are so loud). Pregnancy/breastfeeding looks horrible to me, but I’d feel bad about missing out on kids because I was scared of something that wasn’t so bad. It doesn’t help that I don’t know a single pregnant person—in my 30s and none of my friends have children! Any moms out there who can speak about what it’s actually like?

Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
