What’s a good first birthday gift for a girl? It’s my best friend’s baby’s first birthday. Thank you!!
For the moms that work full time, I have nothing but respect for you!! I am at a point in my career where my husband and I are expecting our first and I want to start taking a back seat to my career and focus on family. For those of you that have a full time and part time parent working, what factors did you consider and how much income was reasonable to you?
Read divorce thread posted a few weeks back, going through the same, I’d like to ask: how much was alimony and child support as a % of income? Full custody to spouse, have 2 children, area = NE US
Out of curiosity, is anyone else a single parent on here? I have 50/50 custody, but with all the school activities, on my nights alone I am making up time and working. Leaves little time for personal me time, let alone dating. At this point in my career, it’s not easy to just “coast” and a nanny is not an option. Anyone else in the same boat? Haven’t seen as many single parent executive women around.
I feel like I have a really negative relationship with my ADHD. As a child it really irritated and stressed out my mother so as soon as I mellowed out a little bit I always thought of it as a really negative thing. I still worry that if I talk too much or too fast, or forget something around her she'll get really annoyed or be angry with me. We've never talked about it but I think I might need to talk to a professional about it. Can anyone relate?
I’m 26 now but I want to have two kids around 35. What are some options? I may or may not have a partner then but I don’t want to base this on that. Thoughts? Is it expensive? Should I just get a girl pregnant (kidding...sort of)?
How have you adjusted to being a driven professional woman becoming a mom? I’ve been struggling with it since trying to conceive, being pregnant, & being a new mom. Would love some sage lady wisdom...
So weird I don’t remember joining this bowl (or why) but my new therapist recommended an ADHD assessment. I’ve been researching symptoms and can relate to a LOT of them (as a child and adult). I’m conflicted because I can stay organized when I track my daily routine (been using my daily planner consistently for 2 months yay) and I’m able to focus using Pomodoro technique. How do you differentiate b/w “normal” forgetfulness, time management issues, etc vs ADHD?
How's everyone doing with back to school and mental health? I'm too stubborn to break, but UUUGHHHH! Work is absolute hell with no relief in sight (but I'm glad to have a job!) & my child is starting a new school (in-person). So many emails and orientations, it's like being a lost kindergarten parent all over again! Plus a "mother's council" Zoom mtg @ 930 on a Thu AM?! Already super stressed & overwhelmed. Also lying about about not breaking, just haven't hit the wall of tears quite yet. Sigh.
My husband and I are both consultants, expecting our first baby. I’ve driven myself crazy wondering how we’re going to manage going back to work with a ~6 month old baby. Any advice?
What is typical parental leave/ maternity leave for a Cybersecurity company? Or for companies based in Sans Francisco?
Desperate for help explaining the current situation to a young child asking questions about what she hears us talking about on the police brutality front. What are you telling your kids?
I have this problem where everyone and their mother tries to manage me and give me feedback that I don't feel correctly reflects reality. I've been in two different jobs and is happened both places. Is it because I'm a girl? I don't understand.
Recently started a new job (so I'll be going on leave in less than a year) and not sure how to tell my company I'm pregnant. Any advice or anecdotes?
Which Big4 is better in terms of benefits ?
Considering the mobility, leaves, insurance and WLB. Who has the longest paternity leave ?
If we are replaceable in jobs and jobs are difficult to be done after 45, shouldn’t it be a better alternative to sit in a family business shop with 30 lakh income with father? Why do people glorify corporate jobs then?
Need some discussion around it.

Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency
I am getting ready to send my 2 year old toddler to a toddler program next week for the first time. Have to fill out a form “bathroom waiver”, which is basically allowing teachers at the school to clean my child after a potty, including genital area. I feel uneasy about this but I know I have to let them… I assume all parents have signed such waiver?

Which one is better to have growth as well as WLB
So my company got acquired by a large corporation. Things are getting weird, and even though I have 4 years at my company this larger company doesn't seem to have much opportunity for growth until the next year minimum. I got a job offer paying 54k more in base, while selling a more superior solution in the same industry. Would you leave your job for more money and enterprise experience or stay where you have tenure and ride it out the acquisition longer? I am selling into smb and mid market now
Anyone know of media agencies who will take really small clients? Think $2k a month across digital properties small (localized FB, IG primarily). Or maybe even a person who does it on the side?
Wanted to know if anyone has created a startup during the past 2 years besides their primary job ? How are you planning to manage both the responsibilities going forward with RTO in place ?
Even if you have a very small venture with/without a profit margin then also please do share. May be what you have experienced will be helpful for others.
Have been a L5 PgM at Amazon for one-year and thinking about opportunities to boomerang back at a higher level later on.
Anyone gone back to consulting, or is it better to go to another FAANG before boomerang? I don’t think going to industry at this point makes sense.
Concern on going to another FAANG is getting de-leveled/starting over. L5 is nebulous middle management, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.

VC / PE people who have carry: do you usually have / sign the papers and vesting schedule straight away ? My fund has been withholding a lot of the paperwork and basically I am afraid to get screwed if I leave.
Is PE worth it if you don’t want to stay long term? I don’t want to work in PE long term but I feel like it’s a great two year learning experience before MBA (admitted to H/S through 2+2 so not doing this for admissions). On the other hand, I’m nervous that any future job I do will be lower pay if I try to leave PE

It’d be weird as hell not to. Working together is about building relationships. Part of that is taking an interest in other people and sharing a bit about ourselves. No one’s asking for dark family secrets, but kids, hobbies, etc all super normal.
They said this is the topic of the dinner?
People like to share personal stuff .
Very common from my experience
Yea this is very normal. Especially in a client facing role that’s what you sign up for
