Very niche but freelance moms in the UK - is there a way to get (federal) maternity leave benefits?
Last swallow of beer before getting up for 0600 flight getting chased with Advil and a sleeping pill. YOLO. (To be clear I didn't drink enough to mess with sleeping pill.)
All these early morning flight posts got me feeling some type of way. Another bench week, sweet dreams ladies and gents 🙏
Thinking about switching to Accenture from EY. What's Accenture's expense policy like? Can you choose your own hotel? Breakfast, lunch, dinner amounts? Meal averaging if allowance? Per diem? Airlines?
I am currently interviewing for one of the FAANG companies. If this works out, I will be 6-7 months pregnant by the time I actually join them. Should I disclose this while I interview? Or should I disclose after accepting the offer?
Oversized passenger in the middle seat raised the armrest mid-flight and proceeded to "share" my window seat. So frustrating!
Anyone fly united airlines recently?
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
Anyone ever used LegacyBox or simular digitizing services? Trying to pick best one for dad on Father's Day. Would choose Costco but that seems harder to gift
I'm a United person but got a fast track for platinum on delta so I was thinking of switching. Anyone have some pros and cons of united vs delta?
Does anyone travel with a duffel instead of a suitcase. If so how do you handle your laptop bag? I ask as I have to gate check quite often on regionals.
Thank you and enjoy your flight!
Have a ton of Aeroplan points saved up. Debating whether to save them for travel or use them for an Apple Watch. Any tips? Is it generally better value to use them for travelling?
How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Travel budget crackdown... Flying Southwest 😱
EY-Parthenon 🐠, how many years does it typically take to go from director to senior director? I am interviewing for a role in M&A. I am a second year manager￼￼￼ with around 12 years of experience (Industry and consulting combined)￼. The recruiter is trying to bring me in as a director and I am trying to figure out ￼￼if i can be brought in as a third year or fourth-year director. ￼ My approach ￼depends on how many years it typically takes to go from director to senior director. ￼
I work 8+ hour shifts in the office as we are an essential business where masks are required at all times. Has anyone else had the experience of wearing a good mask at work and getting excruciating headaches at work that last for a few hours after work? I've already had an isolation period so it's not Covid, but I'm thinking it might be the higher levels of carbon monoxide, as I've tried wearing a different mask and did not have the same problem.

I have been working two full-time jobs, one at a Big 4 firm and one at a start-up, for the last year. I have approval from both organizations for this arrangement. For appearance purposes on my resume, what would you suggest in presenting both experiences? I don’t want recruiters to think I’m doing anything shady or unethical, but at the same time I want to fully showcase both experiences
Curious to know what associate/consultant level compensation is in MBB or Big 4 in 2 locations: Tokyo vs Singapore

I know I might be asking a repetitive question- but any tips for getting rolled off of a project where too much politics exist snd every Person is in a rate race to build a case for promotion
Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.
Any downside to buying vacation days? From what I understand if they’re not used you get your money back. Am I missing something?
My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
BCG 🐠 or anyone else who recently interviewed with BCG - is there a new interview format? If so, can someone please share this format. I saw someone mentioned online test, and math test etc. instead of case studies.
How are your “support functions” (HR, marketing, finance, etc) treated? We are second class citizens, with less: training, growth opportunities, inclusion in firm leadership calls/gatherings, etc.
Hello has anyone interviewed for Linkedin BizOps team or Uber Ops and Logistics Manager? Would appreciate tips! Also how do you guys typically prepare for interviews with small series B startups?

New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
