If I start at a Big 4 in October and my wife is due in March of next year do you think I can take advantage of the 16 week paternity leave? Or will it be too early for me to be eligible?
Anyone tried Dunstan baby language?
Recently found out I am pregnant (and super happy about it!) and beginning to realize the (mental) load from it: I had a headache today that I’d normally take painkillers for but didn’t want to bc of pregnancy, so had to power through day w/ the pain. Also anxious about any upcoming physical symptoms that I need to power through bc it is too early to tell people at work. I know it will probably be ok. Pls tell me so :)
with a 2 year old (who goes to daycare) I’m grinding away all the time. My husband helps but I am working from morning to night , I’m just working. Either at work or with matters pertaining to my child/household. It’s non-stop. There is no time to relax or even enjoy a movie. I feel like I’m doing something so wrong.
Has anyone tried Smile Direct Club? Had braces as a kid and would like minor readjustments since I lost my retainer years ago. Our health plan doesn’t cover adult orthodontia...
Wife is in consideration roles at Deloitte and Accenture, but we're planning to start trying for kids around Christmas.
How long do you need to be employed before being eligible for maternity leave at D and Acc?
Anyone had negative pregnancy tests but was actually pregnant? It’s around my time of month but no period yet.
On a late call with my senior manager. I hear his kid come in and say “are you still working” “yes” “awww”. That hit home
14 days past ovulation, had 2000 IU HCG booster shots at days 3,5,7,9 tested yesterday (13 days post ovulation) and got a faint positive and then again this morning (14 days po- still faint) planning ton testing tomorrow... any way I could actually be pregnant and this isn’t just the booster? (I have PCOS -We’ve been trying for over a year, I’ve had surgery been on ovulation support drugs etc and ready want this to work but don’t want to get my hopes up too high).
Is it just me (realizing this as I cross six figures), but does director pay in the $250k range not really go that far? It seems like a six figure salary basically gets you a car, retirement, and cheap studio condo. Effectively work, housing, and a little beyond the basics. Like $250k sounds like it’s super far from rich with the beach house, cool toys, etc. no matter what you do. Like a mildly upgraded middle class lifestyle.
How long after having your first baby did you get back to having intimacy with your partner. Its been 4 months and we tried few times but it still hurts. Is it nornal?
Can a probono client still my headlines? What about ideas? We are pitching work and we have amazing stuff put together. I’ve pitched before but i have never cared enough to ask myself this question until now. ‘Cuz this pitch deck is looking sick and i just had a little daydream of a client saying “no” and then looking at my headline on tv and screaming “mother fu—“ then end card.
I'm looking to buy my father in law a nice kosher single malt whiskey. Price range $60-$100. I got him an Auchentoshan 12 a week back, but apparently it's no longer recommended as kosher (something to do with sherry casks). Anyone on here sensitive to buying kosher who can steer me in the right direction?
I know there are several attorneys and law school grads on here. Looking for recommendations for books that describe well what law school is like. I read One L by Scott Turow years ago and enjoyed it, but that book is over 40 years old now. Not sure it’s still relevant? My kid is interested in law school and I want to recommend some first hand accounts.
Has anyone seen the Walmart spot where the mom buys new pacifiers and sippy cups every time the baby drops them on the floor or the dog gets one? Clearly no actual parents on that team...
Did anyone here get their H1-B visa extended while on parental leave? Does it typically matter if you are on extended leave or on active project when the law firm typically evaluates (if at all) the visa extension. Any experience (mainly EY folks) will be really helpful.
Ok I can’t be the only one who doesn’t have time to made organic baby food everyday 😅
So far Cerebelly is the best option I’ve come across, any other recommendations? I shared my referral code below if you want to try it, it’s $20off your first order.
For those of you in public accounting returning from leave (maternity, medical, sabbatical, etc.), did being away from work for an extended period make you rethink your career or at least whether you want to stay in public? If you ended up leaving your company/firm/public accounting, how long did it take you and what were the factors in your decision?
Curious about the Technology Transactions & Sourcing group at DLA Piper. Any associates primarily work on IP licensing and technology transactions in the U.S. (e.g., San Fran or Seattle office)? Please DM me. Thanks.
First time doing expenses in T&E. I created a domestic trip but it didn't pull all my charges for it from last week. And now it's locked. Should I put the remaining ones from last week on this week's?
