What are the benefits of an EU citizenship/passport from a country I have no plans of living or working in. Will it make it easier to live or work in other EU countries? Can get through ancestors.

As someone with a shitty passport I concur

If you are an EU citizen, you have freedom to live, work, buy property etc in any member nation.

I’d strongly encourage you to get one. Other posters have pointed out some clear benefits, and there is zero downside. Other than the USA, EU countries don’t impose taxes or onerous requirements on passport holders living abroad. I don’t say that to be catty against the USA, just letting you know you don’t have to be worried about any downsides like that. Worst case you never go to the EU, and nothing happens.

Yes, speaking from experience. I have a passport from one EU country and it allows me to move to and work in any EU country, no questions asked. Have done it.

No visa travel to any EU countries and beyond is an obvious perk.

Would love some advice - during Covid, I transitioned to a smaller firm that had some great things to offer but has almost zero experience dealing with attorney maternity leave. They agreed to create a policy during the hiring process, and the administrator did come talk to me at some point after my hire to say they had settled on a policy and some paid leave, which is great, but they never verified in writing and the paid period was pretty short (maybe a month or 6 weeks).
