Anyone dealt with a parent that has dementia and lives far away (too far to drive and visit)? They live with another family member so not alone. Is there anything that helps the condition? Advice?
Has anyone taken longer than paid leave after baby? I am thinking about taking 6-7 months (a month or two past paid leave). Wondering if it is career limiting.
Husband and I are getting ready to build a custom home. Any suggestions on things you have / wish you had? We have our first baby on the way so I’ve already identified that I’d like a separate nursery/play room on the main floor.
New father here. Love consulting and traveling but being away from my baby has been tough. How do others cope besides the obvious (FaceTime, pictures/videos, etc)?
Anyone have good recommendations for workout programs for pregnant mamas? I know there’s a ton of prenatal yoga programs (including on peloton), but curious if anyone has come across a program/app for women to do weight lifting, light cardio etc... similar to non-pregnant programs. Of course I guess you could use the non-pregnant ones too (assuming it’s ok with the dr) 🙃 feels like there’s a market for this...
How long do you have to work at EY before you are eligible for maternity benefits? I’m considering a job at EY, but am also undergoing fertility treatments...
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
Do/would you travel on your child’s birthday? Extended family celebration is happening on the weekend. Does your child’s age matter? (She’ll be 4)
Ladies, do you think getting passed over for promotion due to maternity leave is fair? Obviously makes sense not to be promoted if performance is lacking. However, if you killed it for ~30 weeks cont.
Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment . From the Deloitte sponsored plans, narrowed down to these 3 - Anthem Bluecard PPO, Aetna Select, UHC PPO. I am currently enrolled for Anthem Bluecard PPO and looking for other best options, if any. Also, if I get pregnant in December and switch to any other from Jan, will that works or the new insurance provider might raise a concern to cover the expenses? TIA!
34w pregnant and trying to discuss our visitor rules with husb. My preference is no one to visit the first 2 weeks, after I would allow visitors but I don’t want anyone unvaccinated to hold the baby for the first 2 months and to wear a mask if we allow them indoors. The problem is my entire family is vaccinated and my husb is not. They are also not taking precautions and going to big events constantly. Husb feels like I’m singling out his fam. Anyone else going through the same or have advice?

Hey guys I'm a fresh law graduate who has done CS (Company Secretary) course and as such my specialization is, for the most part, company and securities law. My father is a lawyer who specialises in indirect tax litigation and wants me to join him. I however am thinking of entering into a transactional role and hence seeking a job in a corporate advisory. Should I give litigation a chance or should I go on and seek a role in corp law?

I heard a news about few people who are in bench were laid off recently. Is it true? Anyone heard about this? One of my friend's friend who is around 2 years was laid off. She was told by talent team that clients are asking for more experience candidates and they were not able to match her to any project. She is from Salesforce practice. Please confirm if anyone heard this type of news.
My brother is applying to medical school, and apparently being AAPI/Asian/Indian yields one being bucketed into an over represented minority, so would need far more merit than means and medians, due to the high performance of the bucket. I started wondering, throughout my brother and my life, if being Asian had ever had any help- in my childhood, my Asian friends were cut throat with everything- volunteering ops or internship/family help. Brother made a comment that he wished he wasn’t Asian

How do you deal with back pain? I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.
I have an interview today with LRW for a CX Consultant. What should I expect during an initial interview? Also any general vibes on LRW would be great!
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.
