How do other women in sales deal with leaving their family for work trips? I've been in sales a long time but now I have a partner and an infant. My partner gets frustrated when I have to leave because we share all of the parental duties equally when I'm home and me leaving is very distruptive. How do others deal with this?

Started at a new firm in a new area of law a few months ago. Thoughts on asking for a one on one with my senior associate to check in on how I’m meeting expectations thus far? Would this make me seem insecure? I’m afraid I’m not “up to par” - I teeter back and forth between ‘it’s a new type of law and firm environment, you’re learning, it’s okay’ to ‘80% of what I do comes back with substantial redlines and that means I’m failing’. 5th yr btw. TIA.

Currently an HRBP who got back from Mat leave April 2022. Came back to a new manager who I know from before Mat leave. While I was away, another hrbp was hired so now theres three hrbps in the business group I support. My manager is having a hard time developing me and her focus is on the new hrbp and doesn’t always involve me in things. Sends me things here and there if she doesn’t want to bug the other hrbp with easier things so I’m feeling left out. If i rely on her for my development…

I feared for my job in April in May when I billed around ~80 hours each month. Now that all dormant deals are back on I'm completely underwater, pulled 3 all-nighters this week and I've been working all afternoon.

Recently started in FAAS in a new city after a few years in audit at another big4. I feel like I am regretting the change. The work is slightly better than audit but it’s just not what I thought it would be and my team is not very friendly or helpful. Their attitudes mixed with being virtual in a new city is emotionally affecting me. Any tips to help the transition? I don’t want to quit this early on but at this rate I can’t see myself staying for the long term.
