Any moms here have Cancerian babies born in the June 22 - July 22 time frame? Can you tell me a little about their personalities, good and bad?
Any parent that's a Gemini? How do you and your little Cancerian get along?
So our agency has just decided to not credit anyone on the work moving forward. This is a network agency at a giant holding company. Not a Mother, W+K or Uncommon. Feels like a cynical move to make the creatives less poachable.
I’ve been at a new firm for a couple of months and feel incompetent half the time when I’m explaining something to my new boss. I’m a third year and am usually confident in my abilities, but I feel like a first year again and I’m unsure if it’s the new more specialized practice area, being uncomfortable in a firm where I’m the new kid, or if I’ve regressed practically. Someone tell me the discomfort of being new wears off semi-quickly.
Looking for a good company to move to in order to have a baby and a good work-life balance. Don't really care about the pay as long as it's not lower than 50K in Florida. Any good firms you know that offer that?
There’s a new role at my company that is EXACTLY what I’ve been wanting/shooting for in my career. But I’m currently 17 weeks pregnant with twins, and I have a 1:1 with my supervisor on Friday to begin talking about maternity leave. I’m afraid to bring up the new role to her in the same breathe as maternity leave, because I feel like it’s out of reach for me, since I’ll be going out on leave in a few months. Thoughts on how to approach this? Is it even worth the conversation with my supervisor?

At Accenture: are you eligible for 4 months of paid maternity leave after 12 months of service or is 8-9 months okay as well? I recently joined and want to start planning a family. Thanks
Hi all, I’m currently on a new team and volunteered for a project for a few weeks ago. My health has taken a turn as I’m 26 weeks pregnant and I’ve been diagnosed with gestational diabetes and severe anemia, which require weekly 3-4 hour iron infusions at the hospital. I don’t know if I should ask for help on this project or ask to be taken off. Never in my career has this happened to me. I always feel like I have to work twice as hard and always say yes. Any advice?
I’m going to start a new job with a new company while 20 weeks pregnant. Any tips about how to break the news to my new employer? All interviews were conducted via Zoom, so nobody really knows that I’m pregnant. The position will be mostly remote, might need occasion onsite meetings (depends, once a month to once a quarter etc). If you have similar experience before, could you please share your story?
Which agencies have the best maternity policy?
Is a webmba a good option to just achieve the mba? The program I am looking at gives you a cohort that you will have the entire program. Online is the easier route for me (wife and kid, wfh, and far from campus)
It’s affordable and I believe that just having the MBA will help me in the future, I’m just trying to gauge what people think. None of the biased “it’s all about the networking” stuff. Just want to know how it’s viewed on a resume and you aren’t looking at a career change on completion
Career coach for adults 60+: I’m looking for help/guidance finding a career coach for my mother over 60. She’s having a lot of trouble reentering the work force and unfortunately it’s 10x tougher when your older going back in. She could benefit from coach to help with where to apply, setting expectations, interview prep, etc..
Im not sure how to go about finding someone, so coming here for advice!

Just did a free test personal training session army gym with a nice young college kid who glazed over at the mention of postpartum. Things were reasonable until he was holding my feet for sit-ups and each sit up made me pee a little. I though about making a joke and decided it would probably break this kid, so I just ignored the wet shorts and rolled with it. 😂

Since March, my family has been struggling with childcare. We’ve tested out multiple arrangements and have come to an arrangement where my 20 month old stays half the week at my in-laws and the other half at home where we have my MIL stay with us. This is the best we can do at the moment but I feel that this constant shift in environment will negatively impact my son. He’s away from his parents half the week and he doesn’t have a “permanent” home. Cont’d

Thoughts on having babies to time mat leave being in good weather? I feel like 4mon off in the summer is way better than 4mon off in the winter, but also seems like a silly way to plan your kids.
If your baby is slightly behind in developmental milestones and you need to hire a nanny, what would you include in a job description? Where would you post? I’ve used sittercity before but the Nannies I’ve worked with mainly feed baby, read to him, take him on stroller walks, which doesn’t help much with motor milestones. He is one year old, 10.5 months adjusted and started crawling on hands and knees about 2 weeks ago, was army crawling for 2 months before that
