I feel so odd asking. Did anyone decide to not vaccinate a healthy two year old? I am struggling giving it to him for some reason. And I believe in vaccines…
I am 8 weeks pregnant. Just went in for my lab results and my progesterone is super low. This is a significant signal that the pregnancy is ectopic or otherwise non viable. We're going in for an ultrasound early next week to find out more.
Anyone else experience this? Would appreciate hearing from others who have been through a similar experience, especially getting some sense of whether there is hope for a viable pregnancy, and if it isn't, what aftereffects I might expect. 🙏
I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?
Dads, how much parental leave did you take vs available? Lateraled in January and baby is due December. Firm offers 9 weeks for non primary caregiver for reference. I'd be inclined to "take it all" but a bit nervous about missing a ton of time with increasing economic uncertainty.
Fellow bowl members, this maybe a silly question. For those of you who are single, how do you find other singles who also like to be child free?
I have been running into this challenge for almost 2 years now that I am unable to get far anywhere with my date when I present my dealbreaker i.e. not wanting kids.
I usually bring it up before even if I meet a potential date. I like to know that we have alignment on core values. It's a waste of time, otherwise.
I need some advice from this group. I’ve been with my firm for over ten years, had a baby five months ago and have been on mat leave since. During this time I’ve had the time to reflect and a couple of other things that happened in the company during my absence have triggered my search to move to a competitor. I have a chat lined up with a Partner from this firm next week. What would you suggest I should highlight? I really don’t want the fact that I’m on mat leave now come in the way. TIA
Currently on parental leave and planning on quitting my job once I go back… is it better to somehow call my managing partner and quit over the phone before I plan on coming back from leave or go back for like a week or so and give notice then? I feel like a jerk either way for some reason…
I honestly don’t understand the accolades. I’m no Julia Child, not by a longshot! One person does not make the bowl. It’s all you guys! I should thank you all for making this bowl for what it is: A positive environment where we all share a commonality - the passion for food! ❤️. Keep on cookin’!

Another "we are having a baby" day from friends. I used to get very excited for everyones babies but I think its taking a huge toll on me now. Instead of being happy for them I cried. I dont want to feel like this. I actually don't even know what am feeling except for I am sad. I don't want to call them don't want to wish them don't want to do anything but I ll have to put up a brave face and maybe send care baskets or host yet another baby shower
I'm currently working as an HR Director for a New Jersey non-profit of about 165 employees. I have been with the company 7 years and have a total of 10 years in the HR world. I have my Master's in HRM, my SHRM-CP, and am currently making $87k yearly. I have 7 weeks PTO, flex scheduling, and the ability to work remotely at my own discretion.
My father in law thinks I'm worth at least $40k-$50k more than I'm being paid currently. I don't know if he's right. What do you think?
Any luck with work appropriate top/bottom combos that hide the bump? Flowy dresses aren’t appropriate in my office. Maybe maternity leggings, tunic top, blazer, booties? If you have any specific item links that’d be super helpful!
Rising 2A here. Does anyone here do corporate work and have suggestions on dealing with improving attention to detail, prioritization, organization? Recently diagnosed along with dealing with major life changes (new child, new house).
Was just asked to leave my firm unfortunately. Would really appreciate guidance from others who may be dealing with similar things.
On a side note, I'm so happy I found this page. I've felt like I've been out on a island without any hope.
Registry tips: Baby monitors. Tell me what’s your fave and why? What are its downsides? Please mention if you’ve had multiple and returned one - would love to know your comparative experience.
Does anyone else feel the need to agree with counsel for other parties in cases where there are dozens of parties? Or when there are many attorneys attending a deposition, the need to limit your questions to make time for everyone? I’m young and it seems like I feel that pressure more than other senior attorneys in cases, and I wonder if I should adopt their mindset. I just want to also look reasonable amongst other local lawyers and not pompous or unnecessarily combative.
My billable hours bonus requirement/target is 1900. Unless I pull a 300 hour month in December, I won’t be hitting that. The reason being is that in June, I had a parent pass which required me to travel overseas to take care of arrangements. I also had another family emergency in October that also required me to travel overseas. Do you guys think the firm will take this into consideration?
So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.
Did anyone get a 4th COVID vaccine during pregnancy? I already have 3 from pre-pregnancy but I feel hesitant about the next booster since I’m pregnant. I’m due in Nov which is ultimate germ season so I can see why it would be good but equally I don’t feel as comfortable having it pregnant. I also caught COVID in June for the first time so 🤷🏽♀️

What are the contents of experience letter when you leave any organization? Does it include mention of maternity leave and continuous 30+ days paid leaves?
I’m leaving biglaw after 3.5 years. The people in my group are fine but never developed a strong bond with anyone including partners (I will be pushed out sooner or later). Also I don’t really like the work (deals and fund investments). Moving to a much smaller firm with slightly lower billable target that pays market. I will be doing more interesting work, in a smaller group where partners seem to care about my growth. God I hope this is a right move.. any advice would be much appreciated.
Male bosses who expect you to jump in and save them when they can’t recall a certain detail in a presentation/meeting 😡 is there a name for this phenomenon? How do I stop this behavior?

How is PwC (SDC) for an individual having 5.7 years of exp? What can be the salary expectations from them?
I need advice from the collective. I left Cap for a leadership role at a F500 technology company. I’ve developed strategy with execution in a new area for revenue. It is my opinion that since they aren’t hiring a BD rep for two of these roles and want me to take on heading this up. I feel that I should ask for a new salary and compensation plan plus new title. Thoughts, suggestions or anyone with a similar story to share? Would appreciate your help. Thanks!

Having 8.7 YOE now, Joined wipro 4 months back with 26.5+1lac JB. Skills business analytics. My current project does not follow agile processes at all, very relaxed client. However what im worried is after 2 years would interviewers expect me to have handled a project all alone and acted as a product owner. Thats what i sense once i have 10 YOE, if i switch it would be 6th company, (2 years break due to MBA ofcourse)
Need urgent suggestion.

I’m proud of you everyone!!
I just became co-chair of our the Asian group at our holding company. Need your help with ideas to help improve our program I was thinking mentorship, events and speakers focused on industry topics. If you had an Asian focused group in D&I, what would you be interested in?
How have your respective agencies, leaders, and teams responded to the influx of discrimination and hate against Asians, as well as the nuances & intersectionality of uplifting women, BLM, etc?
How did you feel about how they may or may not have acknowledged this, and if they did, are they putting/planning to put action behind their words?
Would anyone be willing to help out a clueless PR student with an interview assignment? :) I’d love to learn more about advertising and ask questions about your career!
Everything about this woman is amazing https://www.instagram.com/p/CMxpPiZhdmL/?igshid=1u1vx7xli4a1z
Honestly don’t think advertising is good for Asians - I’ve met very few if any especially in strategy.
Day 1 of Asians in Advertising: Breaking Barriers was 🔥 It was amazing to feel community, seen, and understood. Thanks fam! 💛
New CEO/CCO is Asian. Feeling empowered

I married a dentist. All is forgiven. 😉
Yes!! They still don't understand what I do.
Same. Realized my mom tells her friends that I’m a computer artist 🤔
Hoping to disappoint them less as soon as I get that junior AD position 🙃
They couldn't stop me but they had strong objections. Sister in med school. One doctor a family is enough. I'll be the black sheep. Np.
I was supposed to be a dentist.
@GSD1 wow! Good for you. I’m planning getting married to my designer SO
I’m married to a nurse ... good enough for me
I don’t think so. Perhaps it’s because my asian parents never set that standard on me. Frankly, I’m glad I went into advertising, allowed me to take what I know and am passionate about and blend it all into a career.
My parents just paid for college, never asked which degree I'll study as long as it's in a good university they can brag about. Never asked about my job and were happy to help supplement the low income in the first two years. Maybe I got lucky 😂
A mortgage is a mortgage. It is just advertising.
Oh I disappointed them long before that. Particularly when I lost my scholarship my first term in college and then dropped out of the architecture school (was one of 12 undergrads accepted before freshman year). That was fun. But now I get paid to brainwash people! I might as well be a doctor!
As immigrants, they are proud I put myself through college and love that I’m successful in advertising. Follow your passion, money and success will come. Your happiness comes first.
