Moms, I need advice. I’m one month in at D (previous consultant, spent last 5 years in industry as a leader of leaders) and came in at Mgr - and I *hate* it. I’m 13 weeks with our first and mat leave was a huge factor in coming to D, so feeling trapped. I spend more time dealing w/ asshole client SM (not my project SM) than doing work. My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?
Gave up my business class seat for a kid who was looking at me, as she boarded, and the drink I was offered, her mom said - she always thought it was cool why people got bigger seats to sit. She is 3!
16w pregnant w/ 2nd child and have an interview for a job I want. When should I tell the potential employer? I know it’s illegal to discriminate...but also want to be strategic. Any advice?
Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
Hey mamas, Anyone have recommendations on how to increase milk supply? I pump exclusively (baby didn’t latch well to the left, and always ends up being half full when he feeds on the breast) - hence the pumping! Not sure if I’m doing this right and if anyone has recommendations that have worked to increase supply, would be much appreciated!

Father’s Day gift ideas?!
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
My first experience with a Karen today. I was sitting today in my front yard with my pitbull leashed to a tree. This woman stopped in front of my house and said - as per city ordinance it’s illegal to leash dogs in the front yard and I need to hold the leash and I kid you not threatened to call cops on me. Mind you, my dog was passed tf out and its only fault was being a pitbull that Karen didn’t approve of. I told her ‘Call the cops, I dare you’ and started recording. She walked away grumbling.
Very niche but freelance moms in the UK - is there a way to get (federal) maternity leave benefits?
Childless fishies: was there a point in your life when you realized you didn’t want to have kids, or did you always feel that way? I’ve always been on the fence, but now approaching my 30’s, I’m questioning more and more whether I want it at all. I’m curious to hear from y’all!
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
What is RSM maternity policy?
Thought about a way to re-brand “stay at home Mom/Dad” to “Full time parent” - feel like you could market that and put on resume!
Supply chain Folks. I have a friend who is looking to get back to work after maternity hiatus of a few years. She was a buyer. She wants to pursue CSCP. Will it help her chances of landing a job? Tks!

Fishbowl friends! What's the best way to network to get on a new project when I just switched to a new division and don't know many people?
Do you guys sometimes think you’re not living life right? Like you’re some type of robot. I think the 40 hour work week + PTO constraints is a bit much.
Best benefits of Deloitte ? Thinking about switching from EY for a more interesting group
How does disclosing our disability status in job apps impact our chances of getting interviewed?
@McK fish - Does anyone know who actually evaluates the resumes and makes decisions on interview offers? Not for campus - for experienced hires. Generalist roles.
Today I was officially diagnosed with adult adhd. I can’t begin to explain how relieved I am. It turns out things that I’ve considered personality defects are actually symptoms of this disorder. Interrupting people, saying inappropriate things, swirling on a topic for days: all issues I’ve battled with since childhood and finally have an answer. Mental health is important. Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.
Average senior copywriter salary in LA?
Anyone happen to know what firm is handling creative/marketing searches for UCLA Health?
Help. My supervisor and I work closely together on our project. Partner and SM have told us directly they want me more visible, to build a brand with client, etc. But when I raise my hand to take things on (drive meetings, sub initiatives etc), manager refuses to give up any of the “higher visibility” work so that, in his words, he does not risk himself falling out of the spotlight, he wants to be the “go to”. It’s not that I am not capable (lots of great feedback from him and Partner/SM) -

What is the typical length in time from starting the conversation to receiving an offer when transferring from one big 4 to another?
So I give up. I'll ask. If you guys are traveling every week, to same hotel..WHY THE FUCK DONT YOU CHECK YOUR BAG AT THE HOTEL? Skip all the drama. Clean replacements every wk, easy peasy.
Feeling really down and anxious about the fact that a few of my close team members were laid off. Tips for adjusting into my new work environment and continuing to job search without feeling so anxious all the time?
