Moms specifically at Deloitte, I am 8 weeks pregnant and planning to tell the team right after July 4th weekend. I had a question on the administrative/procedural stuff - do I have to let anyone else outside or project team know? When do I have to start thinking about paper work? Who should I let know about the maternity leave?

If you’re on a local project in the burbs of your city would you opt to stay in a hotel 2-3 nights a week... or would you commute 1.5+ hours (one way) to/from home?
An ad agency asked me come up with creative concepts for a campaign as a job interview writing test. They are willing to pay me but on a project basis rather than an hourly rate. I’m a junior writer, how much should I charge (I have no clue about freelance rates)?
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.

Got messaged by a recruiter who said she works for a large fintech company and wanted to set up time to chat. Personally, I don’t like to go into recruiting calls blind so I asked if she could provide the name of the company and a job description, to which she said she can’t really give any additional details at this point in time. Is it normal for recruiters to do this? Or does it mean the role / company isn’t that good? I don’t want to waste 15-20 minutes of both of our times if possible.

Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.
