I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
Pregnant, just got a new job offer. I need to drop the pregnancy bomb now (I’m 24 weeks along). Really looking for any advice on how to say this in negotiations. I really want to see if I can negotiate our maternity leave. Also want to break the news in a way where they don’t feel deceived.
For a medical exemption from the covid vaccine is a medical note required if you are pregnant? Please don't lecture me about how I should get it when you know nothing of my situation.
Any kid birthday party theme ideas?
Having a hard time figuring out where to buy a long term house. We both work in the city, and have a kid. We want decent space (is a yard too much to as for?), good schools, nice town, walking distance to the train. Yes - I’m hoping unicorns do exist. So far something like Bronxville and Scarsdale seem like good options. Open to checking out other towns in any region as long as the commute to Bryant park is close to an hour. Any suggestions?
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)
It’s wild to see the party of “families values” outraged that Pete Buttigieg took paternity leave. It’s hilarious to see that same party express outrage that he received paid leave yet sat by silently while Trump spent more than 310 days golfing on the taxpayer’s dime.

Anyone else experience more challenges with setting boundaries for WLB when your lead is also a mother? I’ve had no issues with setting boundaries with past partners /leads (all males /dads) and have them respect it. It feels harder to ask since she understands the stress too.

Inheritance in india- Have a significant inheritance in india that I’m looking to invest/park somewhere safe. Anyone know what can be done? I don’t like land due to the “black money” component that will be hard to liquidate and bring here. Fd are insured only upto 1.5L rupees and private lending seems super risky due to lengthy judicial process. Anyone have tips? Only child so no sibling to trust investments/money with in case I wanna put it in a business there.
Nanny cam recommendations please. We have a 3 bedroom apartment so never really bought a baby monitor .
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.

First time needing to edgarize a document (my practice is ECVC and have a client doing a Reg CF raise). Am I right in assuming that it’s just converting a Word doc or PDF doc into an SEC-specific format? Any recs on service providers? Would love a cloud-based self-serve tool and understanding of how pricing is supposed to work.
This might be a silly question, but I’m joining a local project and want to get a notebook. How do I ask my project for one?

Can you be fired if on medical marijuana if used for medical reasons with prescription if company policy does not specify whether it's not allowed in recreational use only or simply just not allowed?
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
Is anyone else getting “agree” ratings on their snapshots? When scatterplots were released, I observed more that 50% of the dots were in the top right quad, meanwhile I’m sitting on the axis. Am I wrong in feeling like I have sharper critics and that the variations in data are a result of inconsistent messaging around performance? What can be done here? Will this affect compensation & ability to succeed?
