I was let go during the pandemic and I 100% believe it was because I had kids and could not work around the clock. I’m enjoying freelance and was recently offered a full time remote position. I’m just wondering if anyone has been through this and has any thoughts about going back FT v freelance. I can’t be sure that my freelance work will hold and FT has its benefits. Would welcome any thoughts or kind words.

Does your baby drink more milk when away from you? I am WFH and pumping and breastfeeding. Sometimes nanny gives baby the bottle and then baby wants / sees me and nurses after. I pump afterwards but only get like 1 oz (since she drank a full bottle). So basically, baby needed another 4 oz on top of breastfeeding. On the weekend baby drinks from me and doesn’t need more milk. Baby is 10 months. I have a freezer stash but don’t want to reduce supply too much.

Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment . From the Deloitte sponsored plans, narrowed down to these 3 - Anthem Bluecard PPO, Aetna Select, UHC PPO. I am currently enrolled for Anthem Bluecard PPO and looking for other best options, if any. Also, if I get pregnant in December and switch to any other from Jan, will that works or the new insurance provider might raise a concern to cover the expenses? TIA!
My baby ❤️
I totally get the joke now -- Mercury -- it's the perfect manifestation of every Dilbert comic strip meets existential drama, like a Bertol Brecht / Scott Adams love child (that slowly murders them).

Desi folks (male specifically) - how have you dealt with marital issues? It’s unfortunate but men are not known to show emotions. Me and my wife have had so many issues. I also can’t initiate a divorce due to a child in our marriage. I feel like mentally I’m not in a good place and really lost on what to do. I’m constantly depressed, have contemplated suicide and just overall not in a good place but I’m keeping this all to myself and not talking to anyone
Might be dumb but how do you make sure you don’t overcontribute to Roth or 401k for 2021? Will my contributions automatically go towards 2022 when the limits have been hit or do I have to manually change? (Using Vanguard if it matters)

Audit Manager 1 salary in London?
For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE).
