Hey Ladies! I am 7 weeks pregnant - I was curious to know when did y’all tell work that you were expecting? When did you tell your own team and when did you tell the client? Thank you :)
Any other mommas only get real supply from one side while pumping? Getting 0.5 Oz from left side after half hr pumping... Any problems if I just pump and feed from right side? (Baby is 11 months old and supplementing with formula anyway, likely weaning at a year)
Creatives, let’s talk creative briefs. I recently attended a webinar with Rosie Arnold (ex ECD BBH). Someone asked “What do creatives want from strategists, what does a great brief consist of?” Rosie said to keep it dead simple and that actually, a smart insight, can throw a creative and the process and that it’s better to just have a simple one. Question: What are your 2 top tips for a creative brief? - addressing one GOOD (to adopt or consider) & one BAD (to change or avoid) —— Note:
For all the talk abt how fucked us Millennials are, we are saving twice as much as baby #boomers & they could be on track to retire richer than their parents.

How far along will you announce or notify the office that you are pregnant? I’m getting several different responses, with pretty good reasons. Does it matter if you are staff or managers or above?
Is a top school education worth the extra expense? Background : my son is applying to schools for a computer science engineering degree. He wants to ED at Columbia, but I'm conflicted with committing to such a pricey degree. It would financially drain us and we have a second child in 5th grade. College price calculator puts the yearly fee at $60k out of pocket.
A recruiter just reached out to me about an opportunity I’m interested in. I’m currently 5 months pregnant - wwyd?
I’m an attractive 42 year old happily married mother of 4. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but a 8/10. Dads of my kids friends text me to invite my kids to activities and additional sport practices. I’m pretty naive and assume they’re doing it because they like my kids. I don’t want to send the wrong message by accepting. Are they interacting with me because of my kids or because I’m attractive? If I bring my kids to the functions am I sending a message that I’m interested in something else?
Gonna get baby's heartbeat tattooed
Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working. Has anyone gone through the same? How did it impact you? I told my team and they’re supportive, but I’m at a loss about how this will impact me professionally.
Parent 🐠 How much do pay teenager babysitters (capable of driving) for the summer. It’s for 2 kids, age 7 and 9.
Anyone WFH with a 4mo old? My baby will be 4.5mo old when I’m back to work from maternity leave and I want to know how that’s going with everyone! This is our first child and we do not want to send her to daycare with everything going on :( If you can share your experiences, I’d really appreciate it!!
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
During my application I selected I would be sponsored by my company (MBB). I am reconsidering it since I would have to go back to my sending office (South America), while I would like to stay in the US for a few years. Is it possible to still qualify for a scholarship?
I am having an informal job interview tomorrow at a different firm for almost 30% more pay. Any points I should keep in mind because I would be switching to them with only < 1 YOE from my current place?
Advice please, especially if you hire. Going to law school and choosing between UPenn law and Michigan law. Scholarship at Michigan and will graduate with about 90,000 less in debt from Michigan. But Upenn ranked slightly higher and better in the fields I am interested in. Also have a family. So better chance of finding an internship in philly where I don't have to leave my family during the summer. Also thinking about going into politics or back into consulting.
Health Advances interview coming up - would love insights into the culture and trends in project work! TIA!

Any full time non flex time moms out there? My husband and I both work in public and I'm pretty sure I'll get a promotion next year and he's talked to his coach about moving depts but we can't cont
Wanted to get opinion from community. Should I continue as EY FAAS manager M2 (120k) or take job as an assistant controller with biotech for 170k plus bonus and stock? Assistant Controller job would require me to be in office few days a week (about hour and half commute one way) whereas faas is remote for foreseeable future. I also don't know way to get promoted to FAAS senior manager ( m3-> senior manager?). I also don't know FAAS SM salary.
What’s the typical turnaround time for verdict after final round of interviews? Does following up with recruiter bode well? Or will it diminish future ability to negotiate? Context: had interviewed last week and was informed that the hiring manager was on vacation so the result might be delayed
Just got an email saying I've been selected as a candidate for a promotion in June...is this a new process?
Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
MBB or FAANG biz ops?
I think my return to the office may start as early as July (as compared to September for general pop). While it’s long overdue and I’m actually looking forward to it, I’m going to miss a lot of the perks of wfh regularly (not having to wake up 1.5-2 hrs earlier to rush on my commute, dress shirt with pajama pants, no return commute, taking breaks on my couch with my kids, etc). What are you all thinking about this and when do you expect to start going back in?
What are some atypical interview questions you’ve asked or been asked? The one that caught me most off guard, though an easy answer was, “What would you do if you weren’t doing advertising?”
Anyone familiar with the Operational Excellence & Transformation department at Truist? They seem to be on a hiring spree. Prior to applying I want to know if it's a good jump from consulting/how they are viewed by other consultants. Currently a SA at a Big 4 with 4 YOE.
