New mom here - ways to overcome/cope the guilt of missing work when kid is sick or missing baby when baby is sick and focusing on work ?
Our 5 month old started daycare about 5 weeks ago. We’ve already had to keep her home for 2.5 of those 5 weeks due to catching various illnesses (croup, rsv, brinchiolitis, etc). Both my wife and I have been sick most of that time as well (gotten it from the baby). Wife is thinking we get a full time nanny for the next 4 months to help the baby build antibodies. Cost aside, is this feasible / worthwhile to go thru the effort / finding the right fit, only for 4 months?
The toughest part of my day is leaving my baby in someone else's care when he is sick. Balance it's such a unicorn. I am considering a LOA just to spend more time with my baby. I feel so guilty.

Pregnant with my third child now and wondering what is the right time to tell work. I did it really early with my first two because I wanted to plan ahead, but now thinking about it, I feel like it just set me up for failure those years because I was reassigned from tasks and kept underutilized.

Planning to move to Seattle, WA early next year with my H1. I know it's a great opportunity, but at the same time my worry is to leave my mom alone here at home. (Dad is no more and I'm a only child) I know once if she gets her B2 visa, I can take her there with me for 5-6 and then she has to be here for 3-4 months here in India. Theoretical it's feasible, but how much it's practically possible ? I know many might experienced this. Please advise
Gift idea for my mom who has been helping so much with baby? She’s not into designer items. Was thinking furniture or a new car when prices calm down but those can’t be surprises. She’s very covid conscious, or would love to take her on a nice spa day or vacation. No price limit.

Due to the Colorado law, salary ranges must be included on job postings for Colorado positions. These ranges and levels were initially included on Build openings in Denver, but taken down once people noticed. Level 2: $95k - $120k Level 3: $110k - $140k Level 4: $124k - $165k (originally $130k - $165k then lowered) Level 5: $135k - $180k (originally $140k - $180k then lowered) Level 6: $160k - $205k Current local market openings in Denver are still available online for comparison.
Evaluating an offer from a series a startup - base is $160k and equity is about half of that or .15% of the company today. It’s a huge step down for me in total comp (~65k less than what I make today) but I think company has a good chance of success. How can I negotiate more equity?
My wife has built an illustrious career for herself, and done very well. She's educated, lovely, and respected. However she's recently decided she'd like to transition out of that world to be home with the kids. I fully support this but she's receiving a lot of judgment. Has anyone else been through this?

What has your firm done to successfully bring staff back into the office? I work for a mid-size national firm and 98% of employees have been working remotely since last March. The partners want to bring people back. They initially tried a rotation schedule, but it did not go well. I believe the timing was wrong , it was still summer and kids were out of school and no camps were available. Also, it was probably a little too soon.
Hi all! I’d love opinions re: where I should be (salary/title), w/ my level of experience. I’m a Sr. Mktg Mgr in NYC tech with 10 years experience. I used to be a generalist but recently stepped into a user-engagement role, owning all user comms. I’ve been operating as a one-person team and made a large impact this year (e.g. I drove user engagement - one of our key metrics - up over 80%). I just hired a direct report about a month ago. Any thoughts? Appreciate your input!
