Considering leaving my agency after just a couple months in pharma - feeling underutilized and stuck.
Coming back from maternity leave and considering switching firms. Are there typical monetary implications or restrictions to switching? Do you need to be at firm for a certain amount of time prior to leaving to avoid having to pay anything back?
Any advice on setting and keeping boundaries? As I’m nearing the end of maternity leave, I’m realizing that I am going to need to be much, much better about protecting my time. I’m also realizing that I could have set reasonable boundaries years ago, but I didn’t think I could at the time. I think the first step is to not take on every deal that is offered to me when I return, but I would love advice on how to not feel guilty (or perspective from your return).

Recently bought my first luxury watch partially to celebrate my first child and because I had to trade my M4 for a Volvo SUV. Went vintage Speedy Moon 30th anniversary. Want a dive watch next. Considering Breitling but confused on difference between Super Ocean, SO heritage, and SO Heritage B01-02. Love that woven metal bracelet. Anyone with insight or opinions on which to consider? TIA for allowing me to be lazy.
Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother. I work from home in a very demanding job as a manager and I feel horrible that I have to sacrifice time with my children to work. I want to be successful at work and climb the corporate ladder, but at the same time my children don’t get the attention they need, especially my 6 year old that can barley read.
My first child is going to start crawling any day, and I have to leave town for a couple days for work. I’m really struggling with this. Any advice for moms who have been there? I am debating cancelling my trip but know I absolutely cannot.
Are there any remote jobs out there that allow for work-life balance? If you are working from home and have an elementary age child that is doing remote learning how are you balancing it all?
My daughter turned 3 months today (second child) and I’m scheduled to go back to work in 3.5 weeks. I’ve been with the company for 3+ years, but I’m leaning toward not going back. It’s a fairly toxic place and time away really confirmed that. I read our handbook and there’s nothing that says I’ll need to pay back my paid leave if I don’t come back. I will need to pay back some insurance premiums tho. Has anyone done this and do you know if the company has any claim to my leave pay?
My wife is having offer from Ey gds.
Can anyone help let me know maternity benefits or plans in EY, as no where any policy or details are mentioned in offer letter.
Don't know if it's dumb, but thinking from a longer perspective knowing people calls EY as pressure chamber.
Currently on maternity leave from a small firm with no may leave benefits. Would love to become legal aid duty counsel to get better with life balance and mat leave benefits for kid #2. But I hear it's next to impossible to get a full time position except by starting on contract. Anyone in Toronto have any insight about becoming a family law duty counsel?
I recently got married and we’ve been trying to have a baby for the past 3 months because we’re both eager to have kids. I feel like we’re not having sex (2or so a week) enough to catch the ovulation windows. We work a lot and sometimes we’re not in the mood for sex after a long day. I’m 27 and all I’ve ever wanted to be was a mom and now I feel like it’s starting to happen but I feel like work is getting in the way. Anyone else feel/felt this when trying or am I just overthinking it all?
Just found out we are pregnant with our second. By the looks of it, we are going to be a family of 2 under 2. What is in store for us?
There are so many implications of this pandemic. Increased rates of domestic violence, food insecurity, child hunger....and the list goes on.
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

Ok guys. Currently in corporate strategy and promoted/job going amazing.
Should I just do a PT program? I feel like FT may be of limited value to me given my role.
Also didn’t get into M7, so maybe I should just do NW or Chicago PT and call it a day.
I’m pretty sure at the root of most my team’s problems is that we use waterfall instead of agile. Thing is I have less than 1 YOE so it feels out of place for me to suggest this to management
Leaving the only home I’ve ever known (small real estate and litigation firm for last 7 years) to go out on my own. I know scared money don’t make money. Think I have the requisite skill set to do it, more worried about not having any clients. Any tips from others who have been through the same? Should I dump money into marketing by the buckets? Should I expand practice areas to put food on table (aka jump into cesspool family law)?

Netflix. I see a remote opportunity at the company. Does anyone have experience of Netflix work culture, or remote working with them? For all the downturn in growth, they have only laid off approx 4% of staff since April (latest cut were 30 people on animation team in Sept).
❔When being called to schedule an interview, is it standard to be available as soon as possible or is scheduling later in the week / further out than the next day okay ?

Let’s face it, lawyers who work at drug companies are not the ones at the top of the class. And yet they’re treated like gods by people who are often smarter than they are. It’s a damn shame.
How do you stay up to date on all the changes in social for ads and post? My company doesn’t have a Facebook rep but one of my clients do.
