Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
Any dads here experience having a premature baby? I’m wondering how best to support my wife. We’ve got a kid at home currently in daycare and our 2nd kid was born 10 weeks premature. Any advice helps.
Dilemma: Daycare requested everyone to pay 100% next month to maintain it’s business model even though it’s closed. But we have a baby on the way & husband’s job could be furloughed during this crisis
I may get some heat for this but it’s my real fear: I’m afraid to get pregnant b/c my body heals very slowly (eg:2 months healing for just a scratch), can have infections due to small surgeries, and.
After a really bad week at work, I was happy about an unpgrade while going back home. Spent 15 minutes with a 9 month kid next to me who was with his grandfather. The kid loved me and made me smile 🙆
At what combined income can I reasonably afford a $1m home? Assume no debt (edit: now add one child)
Anyone else have to deal with a mother who is emotionally still a child? She plays games and disrupts my life and just finds a way to suck the joy out of it and I live close to her so it’s hard to get away...
When did you start sending your kid(s) to daycare? When’s a good age to start if you had a choice between nanny vs. daycare? I was planning on sending my LO at 2yo, but now I’m thinking sooner.. he is right now 14 months
Been a really shit day. & now I'm drunk, when I could be sleeping like a baby, waking up hangover free to go workout tomorrow morning. 😡
While hosting a mundane status call, I was watching this golden retriever puppy fetching a puck on ice video, and 🐶 was so funny I giggled like a little kid.. forgot I was not on mute !
Parent consultants, how do you get rest when at home? Either one of the kids won't go to sleep or if that works out fine, one of them keeps waking up at night. Can't recall the last good sleep night.
So I found out an agency in my town is offering its senior female staff to not go on maternity leave and instead freeze their eggs. (Cont next post.)
What is the going rate for day care for one child in a Midwest low cost of living city? Received a quote and trying to gauge reasonableness. Thanks!
Ladies Curious if anyone has any opinion on a big 4 firm that doesn’t offer maternity leave/family leave to ALL its employees. Is that acceptable?
Any NYC 🐡 that would let me borrow their doggo for walks?! I am so missing my old guy, but can’t adopt a new one due to work ☹️
Anyone else get annoyed by these two things: At the conclusion of a town hall on Teams every idiot and their mother thanking the presenters in the meeting chat. Each of these people should be on a layoff short list for blowing up my notifications (yes I know I can mute the meeting). After a meeting is running over the scheduled time people commenting in chat they have to leave for another meeting, just go no one cares.
Accepted another offer and am leaving B4/consulting. Excited about the future, also terrified. B4 is basically a sandbox, not reflective of real life and I hope I'll be able to keep up on the outside.
There's an IB client offering us great quality of work, but the fee they want is lower than our standard. Caught between a rock and a hard place here
Hi! Does anyone have advice on why someone should do an MPH? I’ve been interested in healthcare and service design of healthcare for a long time and designing healthcare services so that they are patient centric is a real career goal. Would an MPH help with that?
Building off a thread from a few days ago on how long you waited to consultant an RE. If I am under 35 and have not been trying for 12 months, do I need to spin it to my doctor like I have? It seems bad to not give my doc the real info but I also don’t want to be turned away and I think I’ve heard you have to tell them it’s been 12 mo to get insurance to cover it. Any insight?
My Healthcare (insurance and hospital) PE firm is looking to bulk up the IT dept and build out a business intelligence/consulting unit. We are looking for people with a strong understanding (cont’d)
What schools can I target with 3.94 GPA and 690 GMAT? Will have 4.5 years of B4 consulting experience at the time of application. Curious what schools since I higher GPA but lower GMAT.
Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn about a position I’m very interested in, asked about times I was free and mentioned we should connect early this week. I haven’t heard from her since I gave her availability on Friday, should I reach out again to stay on her radar or give it some more time? Would normally reach out, but don’t want to be pushy in covid times..
I’m an experienced consultant, 31, without an MBA. Are there good books you’d recommend that give the basic principles of what one would learn in an MBA? Want to fill in basic gaps in knowledge
