I started interviewing with a company back in January but they were taking while to make a decision so I put them out of my mind. Fast forward to last week and I found out that I’m newly pregnant. Now, I was offered the job. I don’t know what to do! I hate my current job and this new company seems like a better fit. Do I tell them before I accept the role? I know it’s very early and anything could happen with this pregnancy but I’m torn. Advice would be so helpful!

For those who consistently donate to people in need, approximately what percentage of your post-tax salary do you donate in a year? I'm just curious where I am relative to my peers. It looks like this year I'll be donating ~2%. I haven't been working long so I definitely donate more than I have in the past. I also don't always make donations that are tax deductible. Please no contrarians or people telling me I should put my money in the stock market/savings. :)

Leaving consulting and the gruesome hours for a 40% base increase in industry (20% if count promotion but promotion hasn’t been announced). I feel like my co-workers are either judging me or trying to justify their decisions to stay until whatever the next levels they are aiming for. Is it still that stigmatized to prioritize personal life, physical health, and mental health over hustle culture? Why stay when the company could care less if, god forbids, any of us drop d/ad right now?
