Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
Hello Childfree Friends! Question (slightly grim but I intend for it to be lighthearted)— what do people without kids plan on doing with their estate/ wealth once you’re sniffing the daisies? People always talk about how they’re “working to leave something for the kids” and unfortunately I don’t think my fur baby legally counts. It’s been something on my mind lately & I’d love to hear what others who are child-free are planning. There’s obviously spouse, parents, siblings, but what else?
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
Any good books on disciplines and raising a strong confident girl ?My 4 old is such a cry baby and screams a lot. We are both in consulting so tend to pamper her out of guilt. She is still not contd
How many people changed careers or wanted to change careers as soon as you returned from maternity leave? You or people you know? I couldn’t care less about advertising right now.
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
PwC moms - I am a FTM due on May. I have been with pwc for 6 years now. I want to maximize my STD and maternity leave. How much am I eligible for and how to get the maximum benefit?
Our nanny doesn’t start full time with us for another month. Until then, she has agreed to care for our 2 month old and her current family’s 10 month old together, at her current family’s home. Taking care of our baby has been so exhausting for both my husband and me together and I am wondering how will the nanny be able to care for two babies at once. What do you mammas think? I can always extend my mat leave
“A child really isn’ that expensive in the first 3-4 years” ~ Spouse 7 months ago. Our bank account after 7 months of pregnancy says otherwise. I’m excited to be a father and I want to be a good father, but there is zero chance this child is going to remember or even care what decorations we chose for the nursery. Advice on picking battles over expenditures for a future child?
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
Why are conservatives so quick to praise the Democratic mayor of Palm Beach County for accusing 60 Minutes of reporting false information while they largely failed to call out the man child for the litany of falsehoods, lies, and misinformation he propagated? You have to call out misinformation on both sides, not just when it pertains to your “team.”
Gave up my business class seat for a kid who was looking at me, as she boarded, and the drink I was offered, her mom said - she always thought it was cool why people got bigger seats to sit. She is 3!
Currently 3 months pregnant and have been unemployed for 2 months. Just got 2 job offers, should I let the recruiters know I’m pregnant before accepting an offer?
Anyone actually more motivated to remain in consulting since having kids? Sometimes wonder if I will feel that way after (currently pregnant) because I can provide well financially for my child...
Have you dated a man with a child? What are healthy boundaries between your S/O and the mother of his baby? I want to be understanding but a part of me knows that there will always be something “more”
My brother has been offered at Punjab National Bank as a Manager in Chennai. He has been told that he must have a car on his name to claim petrol allowance. Is this true? Car is currently on father’s name. Does this mean car needs to be transferred to son’s name? Can someone from PNB please confirm this?
A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
