Hi Folks, There is a job opening for Atlassian right now which exactly suits my experience and skillset. Although I'm on maternity leave right now until December 20th. I'm worried that the opportunity will be closed if I wait until December to apply. Can anyone kindly advise on what to do? Any scope that Atlassian would even consider waiting for so long plus 60days notice period if I attended interviews now?
Ps: it's my dream company
So I'm pregnant and planning to take a few years off to stay at home with the baby.. While this makes me feel safe, I also worry that I will not be as hireable in a few years bc I'll lack the experience of working during covid and knowing the ins and outs of hybrid learning. How do I stay relevant while at home?
So my SIL is having a baby. (Husband’s brother’s wife) In my family, we give little gifts for everything for the kids, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, birthday, St Nick and Christmas. Well reasonable gifts for birthday and Christmas. I also get things at really good deals so I end up getting a lot for the amount we normally spend on these type of occasions. The Valentine’s Day, Halloween and St Nick gifts are just little things. I would like to continue this for our new nephew but don’t
Anybody still have children going to private school in person. Our 5 yo is in a Montessary where they had 3-4 COVID cases reported over the weekend. They are still keeping it open for now. We are wondering if we should send our kid. What are other parents doing?
I recently returned to work from maternity leave. I am working from home while the nanny cares for the newborn. Does anyone have a good headset w/ mic that they would recommend for work Zoom conference calls? Looking for something with good noise cancelling capability that could help reduce the sound of baby’s cries in the background.

Parents in Texas and may be others. What do you think about this Texas Tuition Promise Fund. Basically we buy tuition credits at today’s rate and the fund pays for kid’s college at that time. Apart from 529 plans, any other better options for saving for college?
I have 2 kids and I still have baby fever. The additional time off from work is an added plus! Waiting to get my period so I know when my ovulation schedule is (I know you can still get pregnant without having your period). How many of you have 3 or more kids? How is that like?
Any luck negotiating Parental leave with a new job? I am expecting an offer but my SO is expecting and according to new company's policy, I'm eligible after 1 year of service but will only have like 6months by the time the baby comes. They have a generous leave policy, just not sure if I should talk about it now or wait until closer to the due date?
Took 16 weeks paid leave for my last kid. Didn't read the fine print about it impacting my bonus. Also started hearing that it might extend my time at level. Are other firms doing the same?
Thoughts on an elective c-section? I’m terrified that something will go wrong and I’ll crash into an emergency c with a traumatic birth, or that baby will die in labor (my aunt had a stillborn with cord wrapped around neck), or that I’ll have horrific tearing. Has anyone opted for elective c?

How many of you corporate America moms looooove your jobs vs view them as a necessity to fund what you like and enjoy? Heading back to work after maternity-2 and can’t seem to get myself excited about it. I love having a career, accomplishments, financial independence, ability to afford a nice lifestyle, plus I would make the worst housewife. But daily grind, dealing with crazy personalities and general pointlessness of my line of work (corporate tax consulting) is filling me with dread. Welp!
When did queer become ok to say & why? I played “Smear the Queer" as a kid/had no idea what it meant; now I find it as offensive as the N-word. Why “take back” a word instead of just not using it?
Do firms generally pro-rate billable hours required for a bonus if you take parental leave? Or does it completely depend on the firm?

Hey everyone, I’m looking to head in-house in the next 12 months, but I work in a specialized area with v few openings.
I just noticed a job posting for a senior counsel role at a startup. This would be my first in-house role so I was wondering if anyone could speak to their experience as the only expert/specialist in their area at a company? Recognize it’s a massive growth opportunity but also scared of the big jump in responsibility/no safety net.

I finally gave the courage to call it a quits over 3yrs of working for management. After Trying to satisfy the boss or anyone and never pleased I finally quit . . I must say I never felt so at ease in stepping out. It was hard at first felling guiltily in leaving but I finally had enough. Starting a new journey where I can be appreciated often. #careerchange .
The entire engineering department is on the verge of quitting because our manager just got approved for a $100,000+ 3D scanner and a $250,000 metal 3D printer, but has been using all of our resources for personal projects. Meanwhile, all of us are getting paid 35% below market avg and we’re severely understaffed 🥳

This is just to vent. I’ve been dating this guy for a couple of months. Our last date ended well, but then he asked me to go to his place. I didn’t because I wasn’t ready, he seemed quite frustrated. I thought his frustration was unwarranted and told him I think we should get to know each other a little better. We kissed and made out a little we have another date approaching tomorrow but I saw that he updated his dating app photos. I honestly feel sick and hurt.
