Any moms here have experiences with hypnobirthing? Any videos or courses you recommend? My baby is due in January and I haven’t started thinking about birth yet! 😰
My coworker’s father is a Director at our firm. I’ve noticed that he is always given more challenging work and growth opportunities. Senior folk go out of their way to ensure that his needs..
First time pregnant here. I have no clue what to expect after delivery. My husband and I decided to not ask help from our parents as they live in another country and don’t want them to catch covid while travelling. So, just want to understand what would be the recovery time after delivery? How long will it take approximately, before I can cook a meal again? Just want to get an idea before saying no to our parents.
Sitting in the window seat and there's a barking dog behind me and a baby beside me. I'm surrounded, help! #mondays
Me and my husband are unsure whether we want kids or not. What are some good resources to read up on to understand what we would be signing up for by having a child or missing out on by not having one? Also ladies who have/do not have kids. What were your reasons for deciding against/for having kids. I am extremely confused and do not want to run out the clock and realise later that we should have had kids. We like kids (we always point out kids to each other in public) but unsure about our own.
So her father has accepted my RFP. I'm proposing in Seattle in November. Does anyone have a scenic proposal spot they might recommend?
32, 8.5wks pregnant with my first, and I found out last night that my Dad is leaving my Mom. I can’t say I’m shocked (they’ve never been happy), and I know my mom needs support. I’m struggling with how emotionally involved to get at this time and thinking about the health of the baby is stressing me out too. I’m so exhausted, and every few years they go through some big blow up like this (actually leaving is new). They know I’m pregnant, and I don’t expect them to put life on hold for me, but...
If the office is shut down till summer, I’m going to show back up to work visibly pregnant lol. Anyone else a little pregnant right now and laughing about showing back up to work with a belly? 😂
Deloitte moms-suggestions for baby related ways to use the well-being subsidy (NOT a jogging stroller)? I already use part of it for monthly massages...
Deloitte Moms, I just found out I’m pregnant with my first! Super excited! I have a question about the firm maternity leave policy. Per my knowledge, our maternity leave is 4 months. However, I’ve seen coworkers who went on leave for up to 6 months. How do they manage to do that? Also, based on your experience, when’s the optimal time to tell employer/ coworkers about your pregnancy?
If you know your agency’s maternity/ paternity leave policies please post them below. If you don’t know, please ask I’m going to aggregate and publish. It should be public knowledge. (1/2)
6am flight, mother trying to breast feeding her screaming child in the seat next to me before take off. Attendant approaches me, "sir, we have a seat open for you in 1D." 💸💎🍾🍻🍸😁👏🙌🏻👏🙌🏻👏💥
Where can I adopt or buy a standard golden doodle puppy? Wherever I am looking its pretty expensive!
My therapist went on maternity leave before I started my new job. We were both so hopeful that this was a good move. Turns out it wasn’t lol now I’m stuck in a shit job with no one to talk to about it
You consulting moms are amazing!! Just became a mom, baby 3 months old and returned to work a few weeks ago.
📊 Poll: How many have met their SO within finance? Who made the first move? Bonus: Where did you go for your first date?
Can we expense parking costs for parking at our local office if we normally work at the client site?
Likely switching big 4 firms as a manager shortly and it has me thinking about independence issues. I assume that a number of securities that are green lighted at KPMG will be restricted at my new firm and I’ll be required to sell them. I’d rather not sell as most of them have large unrealized gains. I know independence is largely self reported, but they do do audits. How do they detect unreported brokerage accounts? Any one have experience?
Just like we all have airline and hotel loyalties, what is your ride share loyalty? Uber vs Lyft! I am not so concerned with quality, more so rewards program or benefits.
Hi ladies! I am seeking advice as I am torn between between prepping and applying to MBA or FAANG jobs. I currently am at 4.5 YOE, 150K base, engineering manager. My network has advised that an MBA can help pivot careers as I’m exploring content strategy (Netflix). One of my goals is to also work in London. I will add that there is an expectation in my family for higher education and candidly, my longer term goal is a CXO position. Thank you!
I might (MIGHT) soon be in the fortunate position of deciding between a $170k~ TC position at Adobe (Solutions Architect, a pre-sales role) and a T10-T15 MBA. Have interviewed with Haas, Ross, McCombs, Tuck, and Anderson for R2 and am also moving forward in the interview process with Abobe. Does anyone know if people are able to make the transition from an Adobe pre-sales role to Product Management? If so, I would consider skipping the MBA. Thoughts?
Can someone tell what is the role of Chief Of Staff in industry? What kind of designation is this.
Asked my company to move to a more expensive city- they’re allowing- but I really doubt I will get any more $ even though the cost of living is so much higher. Is this normal or do you think I should really push for an increase? Especially due to COVID I think my chances are slim
My teammate is leaving for a new opportunity soon and I will be floating by myself for a few months. Would anyone be able to provide me with any solid books that pertain to our field? I'm open to anything for creative, people manager 101, digital marketing, career motivating, etc. Trying to swim along to find my new normal and be self motivated.
Why do I owe taxes this year when last year I got a refund of 2K? Last year - claimed as dependent/zero 401k contr. This year - 10k more income/independent/full 401k contr.
Been in consulting for a year now as an Associate with 1.5 years prior experience. Possibly could be promoted at my firm this year. Have an opportunity to work at getting a job with a FAANG. The job would pay 30k more base + whatever the comp comparison is. I am wondering what is a better career opportunity/what will pay more in the short term. And what are generally FAANG signing bonuses for non-engineering roles in engineering.
Investment return from Jan to June (1st half of 2020) was about 40%. However, if I didn’t actively trade, my return would have been 300% during this same period. Great lesson for myself! Share ur lessons learned during 1H 2020
For my NYC FSO TAPs newly promoted to Senior- has anyone’s CFL shared the salary band for us? Also congrats on your promotion 🙂
