Currently pregnant with baby 2 and a start-up which I was really keen on about 9 months ago came back around to offer me a position. I am about 4.5 months away from leave with my current firm. Am terribly nervous about accepting an getting more even half of the leave I could have gotten before. To top it all off they are offering 50% salary until they raise their target (about 30% to their goal right now). This position is in my dream field and a great fit for me, but the timing couldn’t be wors

I am not from USA and English isn’t my first language so trying to understand is my nanny being out of line here. Our nanny has been extremely defensive to any feedback and has comments to an extend she compares everything with me and hubs. Few examples - you eat healthy, I am really jealous what money can buy. Why are you breastfeeding your kid I formula fed my son and let him be independent do you think he is not okay ? (For spending hours on call with LC). Additional screenshots

One of my parents suddenly passed away. I don’t think a week is enough for me to recover and plan for the other parent. The right thing for me and my family is at least three weeks off while I focus on future plans for the surviving parent. I’m not sure how my team will react but who cares.
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…

Moms, my baby has started to roll over. He rolls from back to stomach in his sleep and starts crying. I know this is a phase but should I worry about him getting stuck? He is in a sleep sack. Thank you!
Any thoughts/insights on how the travel aspect would play out in PwC's Salesforce practice in the post COVID world? Will they want us to be on the road 4 days a week or it will be much more hybrid? If it's the latter, how much % of travel should someone working at PwC's Salesforce practice expect?
I should be more sensitive but I think it's fucked up to start a new job and tell your boss after a week that you will be out on maternity leave in 4 months.
I think my 2yr old son is having severe social anxiety issues… he is perfectly fine at home, playing and laughing and talking. But outside especially when other people get closer to him (especially small kids at his age) he immediately freaks out, becomes very anxious, and would try to flee the scene as soon as possible. Ever since he’s a baby we take him to play ground everyday and he is still the same. Any moms experienced the same?

Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?

Hi Everyone! I’m wondering if any consulting firms are actively hiring right now? I’ve decided I want to leave my current company in search of more opportunity. Particularly because it seems as though my promised promotion will be indefinitely cancelled due to COVID (@hiring freeze). Would appreciate advice / tips and if graciously offered, referrals!
Received my conditional pre-approval for global entry renewal and there are 0 available appointments for the next 12 months either via Zoom or at my local airport. Any tips on when to check or how to get one? Current authorization expires in January.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Hi 🐠: need some perspective. Currently approaching the end of my notice period at the current firm having accepted a role. However been getting much better opportunities to interview at other firms now. Have 2 months before I join the new firm. (1) What are the implications of interviewing after leaving the current firm from a referencing standpoint point? (2) Do I make it clear in the interviews that I’ve already resigned from the current firm? Thoughts welcome. TIA 🙏
