My cousins wife is pregnant! But she has no appetite for any food—I want to get them a gift but not sure what to send… any ideas? Feel like flowers are overdone and not useful.
I’m between jobs, no longer have health insurance, & w/out a definitive start date. Really concerned what my options are going to be if I happen to get sick... anyone else in the same boat?!
Help! My toddler doesn’t want to eat anything but cheese and fruit and peanut butter. We have been trying the “you provide, they decide” thing but her decision is to not eat. She’s always been small and doctor said we need to get her weight up. Any ideas or recipes? Getting desperate!
Would love tips on successful breast feeding! I'm pregnant with #2 and want to try again. With my first I had issues with latching, clogged ducts and supply. We switched exclusively to formula at 2mo.
Read divorce thread posted a few weeks back, going through the same, I’d like to ask: how much was alimony and child support as a % of income? Full custody to spouse, have 2 children, area = NE US
Hired a new nanny and currently on day 2. I am still on maternity leave so helping toddler transition and baby. She seems nice but tardy and my toddler is a rocket. My husband made breakfast for me she came and ate it. She helped the toddler nap and now sleeping lying next to him 🤦♀️. Baby cried and she put him in car seat and tried to rock him along with car seat . She was so nice during the trial (sweeet) but I am confused now on what did I sign up for ! Can I get some tips please ?
You know, at some point, prime will be thousands of dollars a month and it’ll cover your healthcare, your preferred vr simulated life of your choice, and probably your police protection
Need recommendations for a good mattress that will last 5-10 years and make me sleep like a baby. Budget is max 3-4k. Thoughts?
I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.
Anyone looked at getting pregnant in a non-traditional way- How did you find a sperm bank you liked or have a convo with someone you know to be a donor?
Pregnant fish / fish w pregnant SOs - are you planning to travel during your pregnancy with the pandemic going on?
I’m loving these TikToks where the moms calls to opt her child out of in person education. This is one of them: https://vm.tiktok.com/JFjjYTo/
Currently contributing 18% to savings (8% 401k and 10% to savings account) and also paying $2250/month for grad school. I have a healthy savings balance and am not expecting and need to use it anytime soon. Is is ok to cut back on what I put into my savings account while I’m in school? Feeling stretched thin and have always had the impression it’s bad to not be contributing to savings regularly. Thinking if I’m paying for school it’s ok to be less aggressive with savings. Looking for input.
I'm worried that my school district will run out of money to fund my pension. Does anyoe else have similar fears?
Got a job offer at Deloitte for manager level. Looking for a summary of benefits. I know 401k match but is there a waiting period, do you have something like pwc’s wealth builder. What is parental leave? What is the phone benefit? (Pwc subsidizes phone and pays plan). Health insurance I assume is crap but who is it through? Any random benefits that stick out to you that other firms might not have?
Any ex-EY folks here who did withdraw the pension money? If yes what age were you and how much did they offer?
I recently lost a parent. It seems so unfair that if this happened during the summer I would only have to pretend to be ok for 40 hours a week, as opposed to now where 60 hours is the expectation.
What is the process for EYP interviews for experienced hires? How many rounds and are there cases?
Question: which privacy & data protection cert has highest return and value to your career (CIPM, CIPT, CIPP, CDPSE, DLP tool cert)?
How is wells fargo culture?
The Senior reporting into me has clearly been taking advantage of being semi on the bench even though we are working on a small project. It's 10 a.m. on the East Coast. Wake up, John Doe!!
Hi fellow EA fish 🐟🐠🐡 I’m hoping to make comp comparisons between MBB and the Big 4 since Glassdoor and other websites aren’t that accurate. Please feel free to DM!
How have you all been setting boundaries from work? I've been working 10-12 hour days now since March and I'm just really struggling. And the rest is not because I do not get my work done. My client right now stretches between NY to AZ and Asia hours. So I start at 8:30/9am and do not get off the phone until 10pm, sometimes 11pm.
Will there be a salary bubble like the housing bubble? Hearing how much people with 2-7 yrs experience are getting offered to move companies is blowing my mind. At some point this is not going to be sustainable and salaries will drop back down to reality. However, I am concerned that all of those folks with inflated salaries will get in situations they can’t support after the correction. Then what happens?
Would you recommend using travel agents/agencies? Trying to book a trip to the northeast region next week, but am feeling overwhelmed looking at all the hotels, flights, etc. If you would recommend- any good ones in particular I should contact?
Working an expo / benefits fair: what have you done that has worked in getting people to your table, and peaking their interest in an appointment? (Details continued in post)
do you lose your United status early if you earned it via firm-sponsored status challenge? made United Gold in April ‘19, now apparently am... “Mileage Plus Member?"
When telling your project team that your pregnant and expecting in a few months, do you tell them in person on the phone or is sending an email okay? I get telling your immediate team member who you interact with in person is probably better, but what about senior leaders who you may only talk to once or twice a month?
Just had my first business trip since COVID. I just want to say FU to everyone who is inconsiderate enough to recline and try to break my kneecaps for 2.5 hours.
Any book recommendations for philosophy, psychology, and business? Or any book you read last year changed your values? Going to fly international, gonna read it on flight. 😍
A recruiter from IBM Bluewolf reached out to me on LinkedIn a couple weeks ago and wanted to set up a phone interview if I was interested. Continued..
NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy? (FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
Currently have 2.5 yrs of audit experience (1.5 with pwc) thinking to move to another big 4 as a senior? (Deloitte) (pwc is a bit wishy washy about my promotion timeline) or jump to industry? What roles in industry is best for career growth?
