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)
What applications does Accenture use? I’m guessing Microsoft Teams, Excel, Pwpt? Or is Zoom also in that?
Did anyone's brains just stop working while pregnant? I'm 13 weeks and can only manage to work half days. I'll sit at my computer for 12 hours and bill only 3-4 hours instead of my standard 8-10. I have work to do, but zero motivation or availability to focus unless there's a looming deadline. Does this phase pass? Did this happen to anyone else?
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.

As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends. But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)

Mother opened a Roth IRA at 61. What would be best for her to invest into at this age ? She’s not putting a lot in but has very little retirement in general. Would be something to occasionally dip into after 67.

Hi Ladies, This is a lengthy post, about a family matter. I am seeking some advice from the sisterhood. I am a married mother of a boy who is in Pre-K. I have been married for 8 years now. Contd..
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)!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.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is

Seeking advice on how to choose between a mid tier technical accounting advisory offer and Big 4 audit. Worked in audit at a local firm and wanted a bigger platform. Would love to switch to advisory to be more well rounded. Mid tier advisory offers higher salary but also thinking big 4 has a better platform and maybe better exit opportunities in the long run? Insights please.

How was work from home in Deloitte before covid?
I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?
