EY folks please help me. I am confused. For maternity leave in the state of CA: We have disability leave, EY parental leave, and optional CA paid family leave. Which one comes first? Say I want to....
My firm has not announced any raises yet even though the market has gone up (A LOT) and firms in the area all have done so. I’ve decided to demand a raise to the compensation committee. But struggling to come with a number. I’m class of 2014 but have gone on four maternity leaves 😂. Any suggestions???? I’m in a smaller city (not CA/NYC/DC etc) and at a pretty big regional firm.
At the other big 4 firms - what are the details of the maternity leave benefit? How long does someone have to be employed before qualifying? How long is the leave before labor & how long is the leave after? Thanks!

My dad passed away 10 years ago.He was a “good”dad while alive (not the best husband). I spent lot of my youth/adult life fixing his mistakes after he died, which weren’t mine to fix. While I have tried to forgive him for myself, the relationship with his memory is complicated. Our family friends (husband and wife) who really were there for us in every sense after his death came to visit. That “uncle” is the closest thing to a father that I have. Today, I really wished he had been my father.
Any kid birthday party theme ideas?
Hello mamas, I have a 6 months old and dad and I both work long hours so we hired a housekeeper while I was on maternity to help with the cooking cleaning etc and to eventually care for our little one when I go back to work. I went back 3 months ago and I quickly realised that the housekeeper was required to do my job as mom while I'm away plus take care of the house which made her even more exhausted than I was. I hired a nanny who only looks after the baby when I'm at work while the (cont'd)
I'm having a baby 😊😊😊
How many of you have complicated relationship with your father? My father had an affair and hurt my mom all throughout...they r still married but I can't forgive him!
I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
Fishies who are experts at investing - can really use your advice! I have extra $25K cash saved but don’t know what else to invest in. Already maxed out on 401K/IRA, $ in savings for a rainy day, some $ in Wealthfront, and some $ in a brokerage account (tech stocks, ETFs). Is there anything else I can do to increase returns and diversify my portfolio? In my late 30s, hefty mortgage but no other loans, 1 kid on the way. Thank you in advance!!
Moms from NY: how many weeks post partum were you on short term disability? I recently had a call with the leave team at my firm and was surprised to hear that typically STD after birth is 6-8 weeks, depending on the type of birth. My question is: anyone here returned to work before 6 weeks? Asking because I want to recuperate for 2 weeks after birth, then go back to work and use the remaining maternity weeks later in a year. I wonder if this will be allowed. The Leave team person made it soun

I’m thankfully hitting my hours, but my firm keeps passing non-billable work my way. I am grateful for the opportunities, but this type of work always seems to find its way to the female associates at my firm. We have been told that non-billable work is irrelevant in terms of our annual hours. Any tips on how to navigate this in a thoughtful way? I want to be a team-player, but I believe that others need to step up to the plate.
