Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
Random question but do you let your kids hang out in your bedroom and use your master bath if applicable? My kids always seem to want to use our bathroom instead of theirs and my spouse doesn't care but I grew up with my parent's room basically being off limits and think I'd prefer it that way.
5 month baby, Sending him to daycare ( cleared by pediatrician) starting July. Our first child, went for orientation today and really struggling mentally about having someone unknown take care of our child. Feel so guilty, don’t have other options with both of us WFH right now.
Ladies with IUD: pros and cons?
In PA, what qualities in a staff/senior do you see that make you think this kid has got some serious potential?
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
Moms who were pregnant at 35+, did you go with an OB GYN who specialized in high risk pregnancies? We’re trying for our second and wondering if I should go back to the same doctor who delivered our first or find a new one?
Supply chain Folks. I have a friend who is looking to get back to work after maternity hiatus of a few years. She was a buyer. She wants to pursue CSCP. Will it help her chances of landing a job? Tks!
Anyone in newport open to a sublet? I need an apartment now-end of Feb/March for my myself/wife/baby while we wait on our new house to finish being built.
Ever since COVID, my skin has become much worse. I was starting to break out, leaving acne scars all over my face. Idk what to do. I’m 22 and I rarely broke out in high school. My skin was like a baby’s during freshman year. Is this normal? What products would you recommend for combination skin? I would also like to hear more about Ordinary products - they have so many but Idk which to choose after doing my research🙃
Microsoft 🐟 I’m joining soon and curious to know about the parental leave policy. Are you able to take leave within a year of your start date/is there a waiting period before becoming eligible for the leave? Thanks in advance!
Looking for help related to maternity policy which states we’re eligible for 16 weeks postpartum and it should be taken within first 6 months from delivery. Does it have to be consecutive 16 weeks?
"So just like they say to look to the mother before choosing a wife, take a peek at your bosses to see what the future holds for you" LOL
Would it be insane to buy a 1 bd home if there’s a possibility of having a kid in the next ~3 years? Assuming we’d have to look for a 2 bd if we do have a kid and try to rent/sell the 1 bd
Just started working at a big law firm about 3 weeks ago in a completely different field than I expected nor wanted to be in (but I needed to start working asap). I’m just a baby lawyer but I can’t stop shaking the feeling that I don’t even want to be a lawyer. Is this just nerves? the environment? or is this an even normal feeling?
Moms, we are visiting family in the US, and we plan to buy diapers for our nine month old in the US. Should we buy Huggies from Costco, or the Kirkland brand? Baby is used to very soft Pampers here in Europe. Thanks!
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
What was your utilization like after taking parental leave? About to take a couple months and I’m curious how much it will impact my year end utilization % (not that this will impact how long I take off).EY
Are you entitled to parental leave benefits from Day 1 at Accenture? We will have a baby within the first year of me working at Accenture…trying to confirm whether I’ll be eligible for leave benefits.
Confession: I'm a new mom traveling and nursing my baby (pumping at work). I'm starting to think the reason I still nurse is to leave the 20 person conf room and go sit in a quiet room for 20 mins.

As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
Why do we complain sooooo much. Is that a generation thing (ie our generation complains more?) Did our parents raise us weird? How can we change this mindset because it’s really been weighing on me every where every ones always complaining: friends, coworkers, family, people on tv, Twitter, Fishbowl, tiktok
What do you all think of the long term outlook on MBB? Are they going to be passed up by big tech and tech consulting and left with a little piece of the pie 15 years from now? Thoughts?
Had a final round interview with an MBB last week and still haven’t heard back. Do most get their offers later that day?
Not bragging or showing off, but our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses. Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying out mortgage & bills and then a further £2k in corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't even spend a penny during the black Friday sales
Hey guys, super naive intern here! What’re the main differences between creative directors, associate creative directors, and executive creative directors?
I’m new to US. Which classics are required viewing? Would love to learn the culture and understand jokes/references
Deloitte 🐠, just signed offer letter. How long befor a background check process starts and how long does it take to complete. Timing is critical for me. Also how are they handling on boarding. Laptops, cellphones and trainings. I know DU is closed, but is training remote or can one go into the home office
Anyone here interviewed with Booz? How long from interviews to getting a written offer? Had three interviews a week ago. Recruiter called that day to say they went well. Haven't heard anything further.
AA ✈️💺 Benchmarking: I’m often curious as to the spend for folks above / below on the upgrade list. Perhaps others are also curious, too? Would AA folks post: Home airport / EQD / EQM / EQS?
So many new hires coming in. I just don't get it, with all the layoffs that happened a few months back and a bench so deep..
