Deciding to have a child based on parental leave policy shows grim state of employment. I would presume working for Big 4 you can save enough that leaves are immaterial to enjoy birth of child.

Be definition of primary care giver which means your spouse can’t care for the infant and you need to do so. Yes. It’s based on trust. They asked but not verified.

It’s funny you say that because it doesn’t matter if it’s before or after making partner. The kid you will end up caring about is your grandchild and trying to make up for the time you lost

Ouch. That was way harsh. But maybe it hurts cause it’s true.

Not sure how it is at KPMG, but in every firm I’ve worked at partners can pretty much take as much time off as they feel like. How you deal with the impact to your teams and your numbers is up to you to manage.

I'm a relatively new parent of a 1yo. Ever since coming back from mat leave, people have started saying the wildest shit to me at work. Men constantly question my abilities despite leadership promoting me twice since returning. For example: I wasn't invited to a shoot I was co-leading because they "thought I wouldn't be able to make it because I have a baby." And when I am on set, constantly being asked "who's taking care of the baby if you're here?" It goes on and on. Does this get easier?

Can anyone at a company like Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, etc tell me about the breakdown of a Recruiters job? For example, when I worked in agency recruitment, it was 100% sourcing. Working for a healthcare system now, it is more about the candidate experience, much less sourcing, and focusing on the candidates who do apply (thankfully we have a great reputation). Being that most corporations have dedicated sourcers, I was interested in learning more! Amazon Microsoft Apple Google

As an immigrant, I’m grateful for the opportunities afforded to me since moving to the USA. But, I must say, it still doesn’t feel like home after a decade.

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?
