How much notice is required before taking parental leave at BCG? Is there something required per rule or is it more just best practice to give 60/90 days notice to give folks time to plan/schedule around it?
My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
Last week of maternity leave. Sigh.
This virus is not a joke people. It killed a healthy actor, 41, who has a 1-year old child.
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Anyone read the thread on Humans of NY today? As a mother, i cannot even fathom the pain the family has experienced. I kept thinking about them and my heart is so heavy today, knowing there are people out there who can hurt our children.
For those in relationships (not married), so you spend Mother’s Day with your SO’s mom? Does your SO spend the day with you and your mom? Is your mom inclusive?
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
I am not familiar with this concept and would like to understand what constitutes a Mom date? A parent at my kids’ daycare asked me about it and I was not certain what it involves. Is it like a girls day out or can I bring my kid along I would prefer the latter.
I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)
Do you pass the rat race onto your child? Do you feel like you have to grind to get your child the best resources, schools, etc?
Scared to change my LinkedIn to “Open to Opportunities” for fear of my company’s recruiter or parent company recruiter seeing it and then thinking I’m checked out. Should I be? I’m just curious what’s out there...
Just got the dreaded call from daycare that my toddler bit another kid. Any tips or resources to help with this?
Dropping the night feeding - my baby is three months and appears to be willing to sleep through the night. Being clueless on how this might impact my supply, I have been essentially doing a “dream feed” at 4am. Has anyone had a bad experience with supply or getting their period back after sleeping through the night?
The good: middle seat open. The bad: there’s a kid behind me kicking my chair. The ugly: it *reeks* of BO on the plane. All in all this is probably one of my better flights. 🤷♀️
If you’re in a serious relationship, is the expectation that you invite your significant other to all family functions? Ie a Mother’s Day lunch?
Looking at leaving big law for a small boutique (I would be attorney 3). Current firm offers 16 weeks paid parental leave; small firm is 12 paid. Is 12 reasonable/enough?
Weird. 32 and only started thinking a kid might be fun to have with my boyfriend but also thinking “nahhh”. Going to be a fun 10 years figuring that one out 🤔
Is their a site similar to the knot’s wedding website where I can create a baby site? I wanted to add maternity photos to share with friends/ family, gender reveal video and baby registry.
When you're the only girl on the team and the rest of the team votes Hooters for Friday lunch and your waitress ends up being 7 months pregnant ... Lololol 😂😂 #jokesonyouguys

I know many of you are upset about yesterday's inauguration, but can we please take a moment of remembrance for the ending of girl meets world. Great show that taught important values and lessons. RIP

My utilization is below 60 percent and it's majority of internal projects and trainings but have good snapshots(reviews) should I still be concerned ?
Just made AP. Looking for a celebration watch. Have quite small wrists and bought a 38mm El Primero for my EM promotion. Other watches in the collection are a Mark XV and a 70s vintage Omega. Any ideas of available watches?
Got an offer from another firm, what is likely my current firm will match or just come up? The pay raise is roughly 30%. Also suggestions on how to go about asking.
I recently started a motherhood self-care and postpartum recovery blog sharing info, from women’s health and wellness experts, I believe all mothers and moms-to-be deserve to know. Check it out at WhatAboutMamas.com
For those who have interviewed in the virtual environment - do you wear full suits? Or more casual?
Currently in a rotational program at EY (first year out of undergrad). Got placed on a long term risk project and wondering if it’s worth it staying long term. Currently interviewing for the strategy team at a legacy payments company (think visa or Mastercard) and wondering if it’ll stifle growth doing internal consulting. Would definitely appreciate any insights on this as I’m not too sure who who talk to and ask. Thanks!
What is the best objective source for determining whether to get the COVID 19 vaccine? Looking for sources and raw data and documentaries. I’m not looking for opinions I am looking for references to a variety of medical authorities. I have masked up this whole time but admittedly have not done any research other than what I heard in the news. So now I plan to approach this as an objective question to answer like I would any thoroughly researched legal question.
Anyone know how associates in Valuation(TS) do bonus wise? Looking for rough percentiles. Also any info on how fast base grows
Partners (at Deloitte at least), are you all trained to refer to everyone as “good people” when speaking to them? I find it a bit disingenuous when Partners who I just met tell me I’m “good people”, “do great work”. I just scheduled a first networking call with you, or got pulled in to your project 2 seconds ago. I know you barely know me 😆
Do all big 4 and larger mid size firms have PIP? How long do they usually last, and does anyone get fired for purely performance reasons without being put on a formal PIP?
Dear Partners - Excuse if already being asked (I spent reasonable effort to re-use through 'search') I'm a 3rd year M pursuing an SM promo. I believe I'm doing well in my current role, and also believe I could do more. Could you help me with these Qs : 1. What can I do to ensure I'm an EFFECTIVE M3 2. What does a EFFICIENT SM1/SM2 look like for you? 3. At this stage I am in, what can I do to make my SM promo a REASONABLE "shoo in"? I'm working with key PPMDs on my promotion readiness. Thx!
Currently interviewing with BRG in their Turnaround and Restructuring division and was wondering if anyone knew whether their compensation structure is similar to A&M's, as in the bonus being tied as a % to your billable / utilization rate? And if so, are there restrictions of any kind, like it starts applying after you hit a title, etc?
