Anyone have good ways of celebrating a team member who is going on parental leave? A team event, a small gift, etc?
Parental leave policies for your companies? Doing a comparison and I'll start. Slalom's: 8 weeks for primary caregiver (maternity leave) 1 week for non-primary (paternity leave)
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
When you kindly offer a pregnant woman your train seat and she stares daggers at you because she realizes the reason you’re offering it... and she isn’t. 🤦♂️
Looking for some support as my mother is about to start chemo next week. She relies on me for support and I am someone who has always struggled with anxiety myself (cont)
Do any of you have experience getting promoted or trying to get promoted while pregnant? How’d you go about it and what was the outcome?
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
4 year old in my kid’s daycare got COVID and parents said it was pretty bad. A reminder to stay vigilant parents with kids too young to get vaccinated!
Stimulus package question: Very vague news on these checks right now, but if I had a baby in 2020, do I qualify for the $500?
Any rumors of PWC joining the parental leave arms race? EY and Deloitte upped theirs to 16 weeks paid leave, while Don Draper PwC kicks new parents in the nuts and tells them to get back on the road
I drink moderately but lately have noticed a lot of the other moms drink a lot more. I don’t know enough to know if it is a problem or not for them but is it typical that all the adults are drunk at kids’ birthday parties?
(Parenting adjacent) How does anyone juggle a chronic illness with work and kids? I’ve already done a long leave of absence and dropped from partner track to staff attorney. But I miss about three days of work a month ill, plus doctor appointments and having two kids (9 and 10, one autistic). We moved in with my parents and brother so I have help, but I’m so tired. (Their father isn’t an option for support of any kind). Suggestions?
Has anyone gone on maternity or paternity leave while going up for promotion in the same year that is willing to share story or any impact?
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months
Advice needed-I’m 30 weeks pregnant and constantly getting dumped on at work (in industry now). I’m high risk (gestational diabetes & hypertension) and have been clear with my all male management team that I’m high risk. Still, they are steady trying to pull me into new projects while I’m actively leading one of the most high profile projects in the org. From a career standpoint, I appreciate it, but I cannot physically keep up the way I used to and feel like I’m risking my and my baby’s health.
Did that guy get back together with his lady? Did that 31 year old decide to keep the baby? Are Cis-gendered white men still a thing?
One friend announces an engagement, another announces a baby, and I'm sitting here on a Friday night baking cookies and coloring. Making thirty look shitty.
If my office location is Seattle but I have been living in Texas during coronavirus WFH period for rest of the year, can I contact payroll to avoid paying any Seattle based taxes(no state tax but they have some smaller ones)? Or can I claim a refund end of the year when I file taxes? My home address on ADP pay stubs is Texas based. Tried to look for older posts with answers but couldn't find them.
Bonvoy brilliant or business ink preferred? I like the flexibility of UR but seems like I would rack up Marriott points quicker with the bonus category
Folks at MBB in EU/UK are your hours and culture as brutal as US? Heard from my Australian colleagues it can vary quite a bit. Appreciate your responses as I dream to relocate!
I recognize that I’ve performed very well and garnered the recognition of many teammates while being able to maintain a fairly regular 8:30/9—4:30/5 schedule, but rather than be grateful for such an opportunity I can’t help but feel as though (1) I’ve been extremely lucky; and (2) I definitely should not feel like I’ll be able to continue experiencing such a (relatively speaking) lax setup.

PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
I got my BS in accounting in Korea.Can I take CPA exams in US and get US CPA license or I have to take BS in US?
People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
Anyone know much about MRM? NY or SLC.
Just found out this morning that my H1B RFE got approved! Submitted the RFE documents on 11/17, approval on 12/4. I found out from the USCIS website. My lawyer hasn’t told me anything.

Accenture 🐠, can you help explain the different roles and their typical seniority levels? - Client Account Lead - Client Group Lead - Market Unit Lead - Senior Client Executive I would expect a CAL manages an account relationship and report into a MUL, but I see there are a few aligned to geographies. Just trying to understand the organisation structure better. Thanks.
If anyone is looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested. Happy to chill all day but full of energy outdoors. 🐾 https://petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1159058?awo=Atlanta+Lab+Rescue&widget=false
Me: This project has a complex technical facet that will need a week or two of PT attention from one of the experienced seniors who has worked on this client before, because it has a lot of business context Partner: Here's a fresh staff with absolutely no background on that specific technical topic and also very little functioning business sense. You get him FT tho! So same same.
Currently on the beach and decided to go to Paris with my girlfriend..bloop I literally am not utilized for the past 2 months - might as well make the best of it 🙌
