Curious to thoughts on “best time” to get pregnant/have kids. Am currently a first year consultant and would like to have one soon, but worried about my reputation and promotion timing.
Taking out a female friend and her one year old baby for brunch. Maybe this is a silly question, but do I ask the restaurant for a high chair for the kid? Or does the kid stay in the stroller while we eat? Clearly I’m a clueless friend here!
I teach Economics and Personal Finance at a specialty school. I use NGPF for personal finance but I am seeking Economics lessons for G&T
For those who have kids or have decided you want to start having kids, how did you know you were ready to start trying? I’m turning 31 and my husband and I have been married for 8 months. I’ve always wanted to have kids eventually, but I’m having a hard time coming to terms with how much life will change and the sacrifices that have to be made. Maybe it’s because social media has made me acutely aware of the the mom struggle. If anyone has helpful advice to push past the fear, please share!
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
You know it’s Friday afternoon with lessons on Canvas due. I’ve had 3 teachers ask for help in the past hour. Happy I could be of help! It made me feel awesome! 💪🏻
If your own kids go to school in your district, do you struggle with the different hats that you wear? I’ve done well with the academic side of things (coworker/parent), but she is getting older and the dynamic is changing. I teach at a fairly large high school. She is now in sports and coach is a coworker. And now I have some of her friends and teammates in class. Friends/students coming over will get awkward. Don’t know what I am going to do when she starts dating…
I’m thinking of quitting breastfeeding. My baby is 5 months old, and my pump just broke, and I don’t think she’s eating enough and she wakes up all the time at night hungry. I’m just tired of it. I’d rather just give her bottles and call it a day. Ready for my husband to take the night feeds, ready to be able to have a drink without worrying about when I have to feed the baby. The actual breastfeeding has been easy, which is why I feel guilty for “quitting.”
New/future dads... is there any websites, blogs or forums that you use to get reviews/advice on baby stuff like strollers, carriers and things in general? Thanks!
How many of you have food/drink stains on your lesson plan book or on student work, and crumbs in your keyboard, since you are eating and working at the same time? (Typed while I am eating! 😂😂😂)
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
Lessons learned this week in travel: have a toiletries bag you leave in your rental car or at the client site to avoid using hotel soaps or having the TSA confiscate your oversized bottles.
Partner appreciation post: I gave birth a few days ago and was feeling pretty ill yesterday (our first full day home from the hospital). Daddy took complete care of the baby and me, even helping me in and out of bed, feeding me, and helping me pull my maternity underwear up and down in the bathroom. He’s a rockstar!!
What do you use and enjoy for grammar in upper elementary? I’d like something more natural than a workbook, but I like the structure of prescribed lessons!
Vitamix model recommendations? We are a small family 1 kid. Looking at it primarily to make smoothies, nut butters, soups. Which one would you recommend?
Tips on planning lessons that could be delivered over any medium: online, in person, flipped, etc?
I’m waiting for the work from home email, like a kid waiting for a snow day announcement.
Car-owners: I scratched my baby benz. Should I go to a body shop this weekend or it doesn't really matter when I get it fixed...
Earlier this week I was so busy I only pumped three times when I normally pump 6 times. Since then my milk supply fell drastically where I only pump 2 oz each session even if I pump 30 minutes when before I’d be pumping 3.5-5 oz in 15, and it’s been 4 days already. I know it’s silly but I feel sad thinking I won’t be able to feed my baby sufficiently with breastmilk anymore. I’ll supplement but I felt happy being able to provide full breastmilk before and feel a sense of loss now. Just venting
Swingers get the rope. I've always heard this and have tried swinging a few times into better positions. Man I just got the rope on my recent attempt. Just a friendly reminder for my fellow traders. I lost 12% of a sizeable position in terms of coin coins.
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
OTS is growing rapidly and leadership has asked us SMs to assist with recruiting. One of our needs is for cybersecurity and data privacy consultants interested in M&A e.g. CISSP, CISA, CIPP, CIPM, etc
Ball park salary for Digital Media managers/supervisors? Glassdoor seems to be saying anywhere from 72-85 which is a pretty big range
Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
Long run what pays more MBB or FAANG ?
I heard a news about few people who are in bench were laid off recently. Is it true? Anyone heard about this? One of my friend's friend who is around 2 years was laid off. She was told by talent team that clients are asking for more experience candidates and they were not able to match her to any project. She is from Salesforce practice. Please confirm if anyone heard this type of news.

Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?
Hi fishes, Need a referral at McKinsey.
I've had several awesome interviews with Deloitte (2 partners, 2 directors). My practitioner interview has been rescheduled 3 times, and today they were supposed to call me. WTF, Deloitte??
In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)
Would you work with a partner you’ve worked with before, but didn’t enjoy working for, if it meant a 25% bump in salary?
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
How is the culture in EY GDS SAT team ?
Would anyone at Droga be willing to connect? Either over zoom or coffee? I’ve trying to plan my next move and have always wanted to work there. Figured I’d give this a shot. Hard working mid level writer who started off as an account person. Understand there might not be openings, but would love to learn more about what it’s like. Thank you!
