Unless someone did what this kid did (learning to walk again) don’t post it on LinkedIn.
So I just found out I'm pregnant and need to tell my employer eventually (it's still quite early). Since this is WFH, I can obviously keep this to myself for much longer. When is the appropriate time to tell my company? (I have a good relationship with them.)
If we are replaceable in jobs and jobs are difficult to be done after 45, shouldn’t it be a better alternative to sit in a family business shop with 30 lakh income with father? Why do people glorify corporate jobs then?
Need some discussion around it.
Paternity leave as per Accenture policy?
Mom's in this bowl, or anyone, do you feel like the place where you work discourages or penalizes women for getting pregnant or wanting to have children? I realized recently that most if not all of the women I work with don't have kids or have expressed that they don't plan to, and I'm wondering if that's intentional.
I am pregnant with my 2nd and my job is very demanding. First trimester was bad for me with my first pregnancy and I took 2 months unpaid personal leave.
I can't afford that now and cannot risk my job. Not in public accounting anymore. I work in SEC reporting at a pharmaceutical company.
I am so thankful to be working from home for sure. I am just really dreaded to turn on my computer everyday with this hell of a morning sickness.
If you have been in similar situation. What worked for you?
I have a consult today and am wondering if anyone has recommendations of questions I should ask.
Background: 33yo, sperm donor, blood work showing diminished ovarian res.
After my first round of blood work Dr is recommending IVF. My partner and I were really hoping to go the IUI route. I’m really only looking to have one child (or rather one full term pregnancy regardless of how many pop out that time). As of right now we aren’t seeing other concerns in my body just the low egg count.
What do you tend to do with your Kid(s) for spring break? I want to start traveling abroad with my 8 yr old daughter but wondering if she’s too young or if it’s safe enough for just us 2 to travel abroad? I think the exposure would be a good learning experience yet fun!

Newly pregnant. Any tips/tricks for finding a doula, prenatal classes, and childcare/preschool ahead of the baby’s arrival?
Hi, everyone. How realistic it is to start a career at McKinsey as an Associate when I just had a baby and my husband also has a demanding job?
Positive: My mom lives with us and takes care of the baby a lot + nanny/cleanin, and I am hoping to not travel because my industry is in the city.
Negative: Burned out at my current consulting company, working 10-11hours/day. I haven't felt guilt yet, bc I am WFH and I get to see her from 6 to 9 am then 1-2 hrs before bedtime and then I keep working.
We just experienced our first meltdown with 2 kids under 2. We scheduled back to back dr appts for me and our toddler so my husband had to drive and bring everyone. However my appt was running late so my husband had to also bring the baby to the toddler appt. Baby was fussy and cried. Toddler decided to be clingy, did not want to walk and wanted to be carried. My poor husband had to wheel a crying baby and while trying to balance a toddler throwing a tantrum to the doctor’s office where they...
So weird I don’t remember joining this bowl (or why) but my new therapist recommended an ADHD assessment. I’ve been researching symptoms and can relate to a LOT of them (as a child and adult). I’m conflicted because I can stay organized when I track my daily routine (been using my daily planner consistently for 2 months yay) and I’m able to focus using Pomodoro technique. How do you differentiate b/w “normal” forgetfulness, time management issues, etc vs ADHD?
Got a package of 100k in the US. Getting 20lpa in India and wife is getting 32lpa. Having a kid.
Parents are not alive. Less relatives, less friends.
Should we go to the US leaving behind 50lpa cumulative package in India?
Hi All, I have been married for 3 yrs now to a guy I dated for 5 years . The dating years were good but things are not too great now. So I have multiple issues with him and we have been having too many altercations these days . Firstly , the frequency of sex is almost 0 or maybe once a month sometimes not even that . Secondly , I think he just doesn’t split the household work equally . It’s like taking care of a baby . I have had multiple conversations with him about this he does some work
So he is still alive? That was a waste of a suspenseful teaser. And obviously someone was a big baby toda fan.

I had a call with one of analysts this morning who is a newly divorced father. I saw the impacts it has carried into other facets. I’ve been there and I know it isn’t talked about often in our line of work. To anyone else struggling with this or has struggled with this in our profession, it may not get easier but the coping does. Never stop seeking positive outlets and support networks. We’re here.
I am 12 yoe, working at a very stable product based organisation (not NEC).
But I want to switch to a better role & compensation.
I got an offer from Thoughtworks GGN as a lead consultant. Being a mother, I have anxiety about joining TW, since it is service based.
1. Bcoz of the recession and hiring is not for specific project, is it the right time to join TW or is it risky w.r.t job security?
2. How flexible is TW for WFH or it depends on the client?
3. How is WLB?
How do you make your husband understand that you are working and you are not just messing around home! Seriously since we started WFH I have faced lots of distractions from him and I got tired of repeating myself that I’m working & I need to focus. We do not have any kid but in that sense I think I could have make a kid understand to not keep nudging me when I’m working😓

Got 37.08% hike from ASE to SE promotion based on techleap. Just wondering if any Manager or HR can clear. Why is it .08% I mean is it calculated based on some parameters or something.

What to do if you have a crush on your boss and it seems to be reciprocated? Does this ever work out well?
I’ve been a freelance copywriter for 11+ years. I have a client who prefers all their writer to charge per word. I typically charge $55-60/hour. Would $0.50 per word be a realistic rate.
Pay progression from SE to management? Was wondering what a typical SE manager makes because it’s hard to find.

Do you have/use your personal desktop/laptop? My laptop is old and slow, and I am pondering whether I should get a new desktop for personal use. Most of my time is on work laptop and I'm not sure I'll spend much time on my new pc, should I get one. On the other hand, it feels annoying with work laptop that the data is controlled while I want to save personal data there from time to time.
How do you know whether the relationship will lead to marriage or if it’s time to move on? I’ve been dating my SO for 5.5 years, living together for ~2 years, and my SO has had stronger feelings for me than I have for them almost the entire time. That’s not to say that I don’t love them, but I’ve felt the pressure to “catch up” on saying “love”, moving in together, and now they’re wondering why they’re “not good enough” to marry and how don’t I know after this long. Any thoughts? Struggling here

I need feedback. My bf of 2 years broke up with me because I lied about a certain friendship turned situationship I was in before we got together. The whole ordeal ended months before we got together but I kept contact with said situationship participant strictly as a friend as we had the same friend group during the early talking stages of me and my boyfriend’s relationship but I cut off all communication with said person as soon and things turned official.

Whatever you feel led to do will be appreciated I’m sure. Don’t have experience with it but I’d guess 20-25 would be reasonable?
$25 at least
I would say 25-50. Since your a SM, I wouldn't expect that you would be strapped for cash (I could be wrong) so I would lean toward the higher end.
