What was something you wanted as a kid that your parents couldn’t afford and/or didn’t buy for you?
I am currently 6 weeks pregnant after a successful FET. I just went to the restroom and noticed blood on my pantry liner. After a couple of wipes, it’s clear. I am so terrified. I just emailed my doc.
My mother isn’t the smartest cookie and let’s people take advantage of her—to the detriment of her health. It’s absolutely infuriating and she refuses to acknowledge the problem. anyone dealing with something similar ?
Fresh transfer failed. My husband and I have decided we are done. The universe doesn’t want me to be a mother. I’ve finally accepted it and moved on. I just wish somebody had told me this would be my future as a little girl.
Ringing that bell tomorrow. No hate to my firm, but we have a kid during covid and it’s hard to work two jobs and be a daycare provider. Plus, no job makes me as whole as being a father. Old employer arranged a WFH contract deal where my contract is on par with my current pay. Have to pay both sides of FICA taxes, but I control my time and know I can be there for my wife and kid when needed. Keep grindin’ y’all! ✌🏽
How frequently do you think staff should contact parents about how their child is doing?
Can anyone share advice to get a religious father to accept an interfaith relationship? We’re both Indian - sikh & hindu. There seems to be limited room for dialogue and a lot of closed mindedness as he mentioned that if I choose to continue the relationship, he will not be a part of my life.
I’m one month into my maternity leave and I’m afraid I’m going to forget everything I know. Before I left I was doing really well and I’m afraid I’m going to lose that momentum when I return. Anyone else deal with the same concern and did you do anything to stay on your game while you were gone?
All these posts about people getting laid off are making me paranoid. I’ve been on the bench since the beginning of February and scheduled to start my maternity leave 4/28. 😬
Current moms, how do you make this career work with children? Putting off having a baby because I love my job and just can’t imagine how to do both.
My mom died 6 years ago. For some reason this is the hardest Mother’s Day. Previous years didn’t really affect me as much.
I am struggling to engage a child who is very behind cognitively and acts like a one year old, they are 4 years old. Any tips for engaging her in appropriate ways?
Hi fishes- Which is the best 529 plan for California residents? I am late to the game. My older is in 7 years from college and the younger one is 10 years. Which 529 plan peovider is the best in terms of pick and choose securities? I am planning to do lump sum. It seems you can drop $75K per parent per child and then you cannot lock for next 5 years. Appreciate the suggestions.
Looking for suggestions for Breast Surgery Oncologists in Atlanta area, preferably South Asian. My mother just got diagnosed and barely speaks English so a South Asian doctor will be a plus. Thank you

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
Met a Wharton guy yesterday, he said I should change jobs at least once before applying since most of his classmates did more than 1 job. He recommended going to a startup for at least 1 year. I'm not sure since I feel like I've done many different "jobs" in consulting with different projects. Thoughts?
Anyone know how to use an iPad as a whiteboard and connect for online instruction? I have goggle classroom but use of it is limited we mostly do worksheets and paper pencil learning in the classroom

I’d much prefer a Christmas bonus over a holiday party. Even if it’s $500, I’ve mised, 3 out of the last 4 Christmas party’s (client obligations/ CPA exam) and about to miss another party.
Any insight on how to source land an industry job besides applying directly online? Should I engage a recruiter? I’m only getting inquiries on LinkedIn regarding consulting positions with other professional services firms.
Hey everyone, just want your honest opinion. I'm a young professional working in NYC in marketing. I've been here for almost 3 years and am feeling like others are getting compensated way more than me. My peers are making much more than me when we speak about compensation but obviously they don't give me the exact number but I can just tell. Does anyone have any insight on how much a professional with 3-4 yrs should be making. I know it depends on the type of work you do obviously but a ballpark

Prevailing wage request was submitted April 1. -How long from now that I can work on green card (and therefore not on H1b tied to employer)? -How long till my wife can work on green card/H4 and not need to be tied to her H1 employer?
Started a new job at tiny company that led me to believe things about them that aren’t true. I pay mostly or 100% for benefits, it’s not comprehensive & will have to wait two more months to use. Their only design person is their creative director and 3 years out of college. My second paycheck had $600 taken out for “correction for payroll” but no email or communication to me why (still waiting to hear). Projects are boring, but I’m trying to be positive. Going to start looking for a new job.
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Do you expense pet sitting fees?
MBB folks - what's the AP/Principal salaries at your firm vs Y1 Partner? I've seen some threads where first year partners suggested they make lesser in Y1 than Principal. Curious to hear how big of a difference the two levels are in terms of comp
Can someone PLEASE share me what their day to day job is like in private? Hours, work life balance, salary range. Ranging from fpa to accounts payable. I think working in PA is fundementally changing me as a person. I'm overworked, stressed out, overwhelmed, and generally am not happy. I wasn't always like this 😭😭😭
