“So if I can summarize am I correct in saying that the review process does not take into account that I will have less time to complete objectives and also have a loss of momentum due to the (six week) parental leave of absence?”
Me to blind: What?! this is not how it was when I used to work at tech companies... is this typical at banks??
- Chase FloridaManHahaha banks are not tech companies. Go ahead and take parental leave, it doesn't matter. The space shuttle launch will go ahead without you.
- Goldman Sachs NYLifThey certainly took it into account here. I got top reviews both times I took parents leave, and didn't really scramble either.
- UBS MeaCulpaCall the HR hotline and ask them. I would say you feel what you’re being told would constitute discrimination based on family leave and familial status, and see if there is anyone who can help you. Chase must have an employee relations function, right? That team should be able to clarify with the business and the HR function how leave should be handled.Mar 50
- As someone who took 12 weeks off last year (2 at the beginning and the remaining 10 when wife went back to work), it did not affect my review at all. I documented all successes and milestones both before and after leave. In total, I worked 7.5 months last year and got the same bonus and better raise than the year before.
