Current moms, how do you make this career work with children? Putting off having a baby because I love my job and just can’t imagine how to do both.
Did you cave and give your kid a device way before they should have one/before their peers because you're a "techie" family?
Hanging out with my parents last night, they reminded me of how as a kid/young teenager if I wanted them to let me do something I would make a deck for them. I'd totally forgotten about this.
I have a child who has been identified as a selective mute. Anyone have experience with this?
Currently pregnant with baby 2 and a start-up which I was really keen on about 9 months ago came back around to offer me a position. I am about 4.5 months away from leave with my current firm. Am terribly nervous about accepting an getting more even half of the leave I could have gotten before. To top it all off they are offering 50% salary until they raise their target (about 30% to their goal right now). This position is in my dream field and a great fit for me, but the timing couldn’t be wors
My firm is evaluating CM programs/models to adopt as standard, getting some folks trained and certified and creating an ongoing internal training model. I’ve always perceived that Prosci is the gold standard. What other options should we be considering? Our focus is on the healthcare provider space. Thank you!
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.

I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️

Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
I washed and folded the baby’s laundry, washed the bottles, took out garbage and konmari’ed half of my closet... all while hubby napped after dinner. Now I’m so annoyed I married a lazy man child 😪😤
I love dogs. Unfortunately, I travel every week for work. Wondering, If there are options which can allow me to adopt a dog. Is there anyone who owns a dog while traveling?
How do you develop healthy financial boundaries with parents? My mother made a lot of sacrifices for myself and my sister growing up but she’s starting to feel like a burden. She’s just refused to go for more in life mostly because she’s been in a financially, emotionally and on one rare occasion, physically abusive relationship. It’s not that I don’t want to help her but she’s getting older and I’m trying to save for possible medical expenses. I have an account dedicated to that which — cont’d

Anyone not using their The Kid Laroi tickets for the free show at the Palladium tonight? Looking to go and couldn’t score tickets in time when they were released.
I think my 2yr old son is having severe social anxiety issues… he is perfectly fine at home, playing and laughing and talking. But outside especially when other people get closer to him (especially small kids at his age) he immediately freaks out, becomes very anxious, and would try to flee the scene as soon as possible. Ever since he’s a baby we take him to play ground everyday and he is still the same. Any moms experienced the same?
That's Quarantine Baby !
For those eligible for the child tax credit advance payment when did you get the letter with your estimated payment amount? I didn't get the July payment or a letter so I checked the IRS site which said pending eligibility, likely because they are still sitting on my timely efiled straightforward 2020 return. Then today, I get the letter from POTUS saying the IRS estimates I'll get $800 starting July 15 (nope). Checked online again and still pending.

A white friend is looking to buy an apartment. One apartment is in an older building in an established neighborhood. It doesn't have an in-unit washer/dryer. The other apartment is in a brand new building in a historically black neighborhood that has seen a lot of gentrification but it's still near a project with a gym, a nice roofdeck with a grill and in-unit washer dryer and costs $100k less. She's considering the first place despite it being more expensive and older. Racism is expensive.

About to hit 1 YOE in my first job post grad and have a feeling raises/market adjustments won’t be sufficient due to Covid even though the firm seems to be meeting expectations in terms of the feedback we’ve received from management. Is it a good idea to start applying to different opportunities in case my raise/adjustment isn’t what I’m expecting at year end? Not sure how long the average job search could take...
Hi Everyone! I’m wondering if any consulting firms are actively hiring right now? I’ve decided I want to leave my current company in search of more opportunity. Particularly because it seems as though my promised promotion will be indefinitely cancelled due to COVID (@hiring freeze). Would appreciate advice / tips and if graciously offered, referrals!

Used to be in a quant group. We had an underperforming staff who we let go. He claimed to HR he was discriminated against bc he was an MBA. To which they responded: that's not a protected class.
