Anyone experience not working well with managers and up (due to micro-management, talk to you like a child, etc), but find them cool outside of work? Finding it hard to hang with them during HH now.

No. Those people aren’t cool outside of work. They aren’t even cool at an accounting firm. Which means, they aren’t cool anywhere

Agree. Micro managers have no cool whatsoever

If I don't respect inside the work place, the I am not hanging out with you outside the work place. When people show you their true colors - that is who they are. Micromanagers and offensive people need to "grow their whole-selves". I experienced that behavior at a different firm. It's not worth it. No salary is. Find a way to communicate that type of behavior is not acceptable. I decided to leave that firm and joined Grant Thornton. Do what's best for you to find a healthier working environment.

I’m a micromanager by nature. That’s my cross to bear but I try to work on it every day. That stated, don’t you EVER lump that in with being offensive and not respecting my coworkers.

And yes, I’m tons of fun at HH!!!!!

Do you have any recommendations for baby carriers - specifically for bigger babies? We have a baby bjorn, boba wrap, and ergobaby embrace, but it feels like they are getting small / tight for my big baby boy. For reference, he is already over 18lbs at 4mos. Would love something that would be comfy for him but also distributes weight well, as he will only get heavier 🤪 Thank you in advance!

Looking for perspective here! I’m worried that my ex is going to refuse to pay child support and take me to court over it. And I’m worried that somehow support won’t be given.

My ex makes 60% of hhi and I make 40%, but live in a HCOL area so really need support to help pay rent. My lawyer says I can’t make the rent case because I can move somewhere cheaper.
