Mother’s Day ideas?
FTM looking for advice on baby monitor. I don't mind spending more and eyeing on the Nanit for its breathing detection. Any one used that? Any feedback? Open to hear about other options that can help reduce SIDS (FTM freaking out about that). I don't want the Owelet cause it an electronic that touches the baby. TIA!!!
Do people in analytics groups (Quantum Black, Gamma, Lighthouse, etc) get access and exposure to the parent firm's training for general mgmt consultants?
Is it normal for a Partner to tell me “you know this will delay your promotion by 6 months” a day before my STD for mental health reasons? (P.S. He assumed I took the leave for mental health reasons although I never mentioned that to him). He also said “people like you leave and never come back so make sure you talk to your sponsors before making any decision, there are people who are excited to work with you”.. the conversation is on replay in my head

Any good books on how to be liked or get along with others? Looking back in my career, I’ve always had friction my manager and disliked by more than one coworker.

My bipolar father has ruined our whole family's lives. He won't take his medicine, keeps having episodes, and only cares about himself. I only feel hatred when I am around him or see his face. He has made us miserable. I don't know how to deal anymore. He doesn't even know me anymore, he doesn't know any of us, but will put up an act in front of the world. I don't know what having a dad looks like. Apologies for the vent.
Let's talk birth control. I've been on the NuvaRing forever, but my insurance company switched to only covering the generic. The side effects are horrible! I'm gonna have to switch. Just curious about what you ladies are using. What do you love or what else should I stay away from?
For people managers, will you choose to downgrade to individual contributors at FAANG or continue being a people manager in traditional industries (e.g., finance, healthcare)?
Do you think using “him/her” for “he/she” (ex: “her is playing” “him not here yet”) is something that kids usually grow out of? Or does it need direct intervention? I have 2 students who exhibit this error, who otherwise should be dismissed. Normally I’d just keep them on and work on it alongside other goals, but they don’t have any other goals, and with COVID, and my upcoming maternity leave in March, a more compact caseload would be advantageous.
Hear me out before reporting this. I know it’s a good thing overall that we focus more on mental health/therapy nowadays, but sometimes I wonder if it’s just a crutch to blame things on others and not take self responsibility. My brother has been going through Complex PTSD and severe depression for 4-5 years and it’s been absolute hell. It’s not any better after multiple therapists and the latest one he likes seems to encourage blaming my parents as the cause despite us having same upbringing
I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant. We will have health insurance with my new employer but my wife found some article suggesting we may not get pregnancy coverage under new insurance because they will recognize it as a preexisting condition. Can anyone assuage my concern and let me know if there’s any validity to this? Are we screwed..
Hi ladies - I’m 29, my husband & I are planning to start TTC in a few months. I’ve been diagnosed by pcos when I was 17 and I’ve been on birth control ever since due to irregular periods. I’m nervous that it’ll be difficult to conceive without hormones/meds but I have no clue. Wondering if anyone’s had a similar situation or has an insights on getting pregnant with irregular periods or pcos? How long in advance did you quit birth control?

Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
Hi Fishes, Need suggestion plz YOE - 17.6, Present CTC is 24.5 LPA.

Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.
