Hi, my husband was diagnosed Covid on Monday. I told a few partners I worked for (and made clear that I have to take him to hospital for treatment and follow up checks) and pretty much got no sympathy. Every email started with hope he feels better but when your get a second, could you do this? Could you do that? So today I am confirmed Covid (and I’m pregnant), haven’t told work about Covid or pregnancy. What should I do? What’s the expectation of time off if you get Covid at a law firm?

I’m rapidly coming to a crossroads and having a hard time evaluating what I want next. I’m leaving consulting no matter what but my opps are wildly different and perspectives are appreciated.

1: go client side - super known and safe and good, but continues status quo
2: go baby start up - been helping out a small group who has some traction on funding, could be ready to go legit
3: try a 3rd party - my industry is hot right now, I’m talking with Salesforce and a few other big players

Need advice from project leaders! My PL is having a baby soon and I’d like to know what is the appropriate communication here, without being unprofessional. I know her due date but it feels weird to congratulate her without knowing if the delivery went well. It feels rude to not say anything at all. She’ll be going on maternity leave after and I’ll be taking over the project, so likely won’t talk much. Don’t have kids myself, so any advice is highly appreciated!
