Any parent willing to share experience and journey for a mild Autism child over the years. When you noticed, how it progressed, what helped the most etc. 3yr son is diagnosed with mild Autism and I feel he is getting better in some areas but worse with stimming and zoning out. I know evey child is different but a worried parent trying to decipher what future holds. Thanks!
Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant and I went through a lot of anxiety and depression during my first trimester. This has impacted my relationship with my husband and especially my in-laws. When I am anxious, I need space. But my in-laws wanted to support me by coming over or inviting me over. All that was too much for me. So anytime I was at their place, I would literally just hide in one of the rooms with the lights off. My nausea was so bad that I was having a hard time even thinking straight.
Has anyone attempted or been successful at negotiating more parental leave or earlier eligibility (if employed <1 yr) with their job offer?
My 7 week old baby!!!
Anytime I complain about something not being right in my life, I'm going to remind myself to watch this video of this migrant mother lugging her child across state lines just so I can get perspective of how blessed most of us are. Truly heart wrenching! :(
Is anyone feeling the disrespect of students in a classroom? The attitude towards adults when a student is interacting with the said adult. Wow! The mother in me just wants to wash the child’s mouth out for such disrespect, BUT definitely NOT allowed in school. How have kids gotten this far w/o any reprimand for their behavior? What are we teaching them if we keep ignoring….
Any advice of how to get a dog when the rental has a no pet policy? I really could use a fur baby in my life
I hope this helps a baby fish.
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Looking for advice on how/when to tell my bosses I’m pregnant. I’m only 8 weeks and have my first doctor’s appointment this week to confirm the pregnancy. We haven’t told any family or friends yet. We have been back in the office since June, so I’m not working remotely. I plan to wait until 12/13 weeks to tell anyone at work. I’m 29 and a 4th year associate. I do work for 4 main partners, though I have closer working relationships with some more than others. Any advice appreciated!
Has anyone used bright horizon’s back up child care? I’m currently juggling my two little ones (almost 1 and 3) because grandma had a procedure that sidelined her for a few weeks. We’ve never done care centers or outside help - so naturally I’m apprehensive, but with busy season ending, these final few weeks are proving to be too much. I can do in home or a center- but my nerves are holding me back, esp for my almost 1 year old.
Just picked up Whiskey Bible's #1 rated whiskey for 2021 (and 2020 World Whisky of the year) - can't wait for the weekend to crack this baby open. Alberta Premium Rye Cask Strength.
I posted this in the mom’s group but wanted to cross post here Best swimsuit brand and / or type for bigger bust and round tummy but not quite plus size. Usual size is large or xl. Haven’t lost all the baby weight yet 17 months later.
Great vibes with girl after 2nd date, definite potential for more. However, noticed that she adjusted her age by either 1 or 3 years on dating app, and just confronted her about it. She wrote it off due to Covid year, but I find the lack of honesty and real remorse concerning. What would you do?
Have no plans this Friday evening - what should I do? Going to spend some time prepping for interviews/applying to jobs but tips on something solo/self care related that I can also plan?
My friend survived COVID, but is dealing with a lot of pervasive symptoms. Hair loss, intense headaches, tingling sensation etc. She and her boyfriend both had it and won’t be leaving their NY apt for a long time. What can I gift her? Feeling super inadequate and hoping for some good suggestions from this group
Thoughts on Skype vs. on-campus interview? Invited to interview with Anderson, but coming from the east coast, I’d love to save the $ & time for other interviews and (hopefully) admitted student days
If I quit my job while on H1B, can I apply for a new job in the US from my home country, and then have them submit a new H1B petition for consular processing? Is my H1B “spot” held, so to speak?
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
I’m starting at MBB shortly as an associate, laterally from Big 4. Husband & I are trying to decide if we want to buy a house and settle in the city we’re moving to - I am potentially interested in making partner (if possible) but also open if a good exit opportunity comes my way. Exit opps would certainly be in a different location. Anyone have thoughts on ideal length to stay at MBB?
How do you all avoid giving a number when asked for what your desired salary is during interviews?
Why is there such a culture of overwork in some industries (consulting, finance, and law come to mind) but not others? What’s the differentiating factor?
Cool things you've done with your bonus
People interviewing: someone please go to Reference Point consulting. They seem desperate! 😂😂😂😂😂
Fresh hire - still in probation - but have just been headhunted for a role at a large video games company. Pay matching. Role looks way more interesting and culture is much more chilled but isn’t Amazon. Take it or stay? How much does Amazon really accelerate your career?

Looking into certifications like the CFP or CFA but they’re so expensive and I can’t afford the upfront cost right now. Are other certs like APMA and CDFA worth it?
