Probably asked a lot but how do you deal with the stress of a new project which involves a new team?

Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness?

Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

Got offer from D for Consultant in tech. Slightly above 6 figures. Is that the top of C band? Will it mean no raise until I hit SC?
Hi ladies, just in need of some encouragement or inspirational stories about pivoting to a new career. I’m at a large established brand name firm doing boring stuff& just got a strong offer (2x my last year TC+promoted title) to do real estate. Very surprised as the firm is relatively under the radar but intrigued to see many partners in RE there are women! Still, nervous about leaving a big recognizable place and about an absolutely different career path—would love to hear your thoughts!
Considering the FRM certification. Those who’ve taken it, how quant heavy is it? I have a compliance risk background and don’t have a deep math or statistics background. However, I want to expand my skillset. Any thoughts?

Help with comp negotiation: Was offered a mid level role with fast growing tech co valued at ~$6b. They are offering $140k base and 30k options (number of shares not $) vesting over 4 years. Likely annual bonus of either $20-40k or 10k shares. What’s a reasonable counter? Current offer base would be a pay cut for me, but I believe in the co.
