I spend a ton (ie nearly all) of my time with each of my 3 kids (6, 23mo, and 2mo). My 23mo will not stop clinging and screaming for mom only, and it’s driving me absolutely nuts. Any advice?
Hi fishes. Is it a fact that PWC payscale is relatively low compared to other Big4s?
I have been approached by PwC HRs twice in last 2 months, both times they did not even shortlist me stating that my expected CTC is high.
YoE =6.5yrs + 2yrs tier2-MBA
Expected CTC= 1.4x
2nd time they approached, I even brought down my exp CTC to 1.3x. Still they said PwC does not have budget.
I already have offer of 1.45x from another Big4. Its only PwC that is not budging. :(
I am having 2+years experience as data scientist with current ctc as 4.75 lpa
If change to other companies what is the minimum ctc can i expect?
Anyone willing to give a refferal for any company they currently work at or specifically work at Amazon, target or ibm

I don't even have time to turn my light on when I get home; I just stumble my way to bed with my flashlight app.
Hi 🐠, It's been 2.5 years since l joined Deloitte and I want to move to a new job soon. I haven't started applying yet but will. I have a question. The green card process deadline is tomorrow and Im not sure if should initiate that or not. My H1B started last October so I still have time but I don't want to be stuck here for the entire duration of green card process. So my question is, after starting the process when can I move to a different firm? Will documentation resume in new firm?
I would like to let people know about something concerning happening in the Salesforce bowl but my post will be taken down there. Mods are tone policing and may be in ES/ER. As with any anon app, be cautious with what you share.
I’m looking for a BCG referral as well!

Has anybody used inito/Mira/etc and actually be successful conceiving? We are already seeing RE but I would love to supplement with at home tests, if they are worth it. All the reviews I read are about people who love tracking data but nothing substantial on whether it helped conceive or not.
Hi everyone! Looking for recommendations for Denver obgyn/fertility doctor or facility. Moving there this fall and so sad to leave my current practice. Would appreciate any info!
Did folks take any supplements before a FET? I've seen Vitamin E and L-Arginine recommended, plus Vitamin D and prenatals. (cont)
Decided to seek a second opinion. Does anyone have any recommendations for a fertility doc in the Los Angeles?

Hi, any virgins froze their eggs? Is it painful?
Was told I had PCOS a couple years ago. What method of contraception did people choose with this condition? I have not had children yet. ObGYN recommended the Skyla. Wondering about any other experien
If you have had a hormonal IUD, how many months in advance of TTC did you have it removed in order to start regulating/tracking your cycles?
Anyone from Ontario. I have had 4 transfer so far with no success . Waiting for my fifth transfer.
I am planning to ask my family doctor for short term disability. Without knowing the actual date when the transfer would be and if I would be able to do the transfer because I am doing a natural cycle . how can I convey this to my manager and make sure my team can manage without me when I am away.
Can someone please help with some thoughts ?
I went from having pretty much always regular periods in my 20s to now having way less regular ones in my early 30s, often occurring 8 weeks btwn periods versus 4. Is this a sign of fertility issues or just lifestyle and more stress can cause more irregularity consistently?
Hi everyone - I’m new and younger (25) but wanting to plan ahead knowing how fertility drops with age. I have a question about egg freezing - if you still have high ovarian reserve, do you necessarily still need to take injections to increase the number of eggs that can be extracted per cycle? TIA!
Got pregnant through Letrazole + Ovidrel IUI and my doctor has me on estrogen 2mg 3 times a day and progesterone 200mg 2 times a day. I’m week 7 and already am or feel huge. I’m so paranoid these hormones are making me gain so much unnecessary weight in my first trimester. I’ve been eating the same and literally none of my pants fit. Will my body readjust when I finally hit week 10 and can hopefully be off both hormones? Any advice here?
Going through IVF cycle now. Every ultrasound session costs about $800-$900 each. My firm insurance covers like $90. I need to pay the rest out of pocket. Does this sound normal? Thank you!
Had my baseline blood draw yesterday for my first IVF cycle. My doctor said we had about a 1-4 day window to start stims. Today, I got results back from my baseline stating that my estrogen levels are too high to start stims. Has anyone else had this happen before? Is there anything I should be doing/taking to lower it before stims?
35 years old going to be 36. Started ttc recently and tracking my ovulation. I noticed my test shows high fertile for 7-8 days straight without any peak in that month. It happened twice in last 6 months. My periods are fairly regular with 26-30 days cycles. my obgyn doesn’t seem to mind it but she suggested to go see a fertility specialist if I want to conceive sooner and don’t want to go traditional way. I am really stressed about it. Am I late for conceive?
Going for my blood test tomorrow 11 days post FET. No symptoms yet but hoping for a positive news. Wish me luck !
Just got my payout of the pathways to parenthood benefit at EY. Took over 12 weeks and only got thru by escalating and chasing multiple times per week over the last two months. Glad to have the benefit but frustrating it was so challenging.
