Anyone decide to go part-time after coming back from maternity leave? How did you make the transition?

I worked for a small company when my daughter was born. It was no problem, I just talked with the company leadership and asked. They let me switch to 32 hours a week. The few weeks of adjustment turned into a couple of years.



I didn’t but I did decrease my hours the first time around. I plan to take a good look at my hours and determine what’s best for me this time around too.

I did this at my previous company after my second son was born. I worked it out with my manager so that I was only working two very specific accounts and I billed hourly. I didn’t have any health benefits to worry about since that was through my husbands work. This was pre-WFH so at the time it was such a luxury to be able to have flex hours, do laundry during the day, make dinner, etc. You just have to be very strict with your boundaries, make sure your teams know approximately what hours you are working and don’t let them try to guilt you into extra work!

Fuck Deloitte. Not only is our employer 401k match 1.5% but it takes 4years to vest. I'm so done with the nickel and dime-ing. Getting promoted and running.

In-house marketing departments are flourishing right now. We’ve hired two new people, and plan on more. And we continue to fire our agencies, from content creation to branding. I think it’s a positive move, as I’ve seen better work related to the brand I work for come from those who understand it best. Tell me again why a full agency is necessary? 😆 We hire and give full benefits, while agencies continue to ask freelancers for discounts, while jacking up their agency rates.


Legit confused about the "wait and see/ I'm low risk" vaccine crowd. I'm low risk too but I got vaccinated for me as well as to contribute to the safety of others by stopping the spread.

I made over $6500 today in my 401k. My retirement investments made more since President Trump has been in power than any other president in my life time.
