Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.
Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the

Let's talk hair care! Wondering how folks keep their hair for work. I'm usually natural/fro or in single braids or Senegalese twists, but anyone with locs wanna share their experience? I want to get locs but idk if I can do the baby loc phase in this industry
What’s NYC 2021 like? I moved out over a year ago to raised a fam and hear crazy shi like 5-months free rent now!?! My paycheck to paycheck LES friend lives in FiDi with a doorman now?!? WTF is going on and do y’all prefer the New New York, or not so much?? Btw, Baby Kai says “Howdy!” 🤠
My dad passed away 10 years ago.He was a “good”dad while alive (not the best husband). I spent lot of my youth/adult life fixing his mistakes after he died, which weren’t mine to fix. While I have tried to forgive him for myself, the relationship with his memory is complicated. Our family friends (husband and wife) who really were there for us in every sense after his death came to visit. That “uncle” is the closest thing to a father that I have. Today, I really wished he had been my father.
My friend just had a baby. I want to send her something useful / something she needs. I know the first few weeks are tough. Any recommendations?
Parent has a thrift savings plan and it’s all in bonds which yields a really low rate of return. retiring this year. With coming inflation, would it be a good idea to consider shifting at least some of that into other funds like the C Fund (common stock index) or otherwise diversify? They don’t need all of the money right away but would need to slowly dip into it over time. TIA!
Women who are not getting the Covid vaccine because they are afraid of infertility or the effect on pregnancy - do you mind sharing your reasons why? I’m genuinely curious what resources you have used to make your decision. For instance, my friend says there is an NYU study that shows it has effects on fertility, and I have no clue what she’s saying because I can’t find this study anywhere.
I’m 4 and half months pregnant. A recruiter reached out. Should I disclose that during our initial conversation? If not, when would be the appropriate time to share that?
What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm; (3) how many paid weeks off (from firm - not state/fed); (4) other perks, such as ramp up/down time, etc.
Is there a standard rule in terms of how much you save vs. Spend out of your take home income? For long term financial health. About to become a father and thinking of renting a larger place, rent will increase by $500, other expenses will increase by $500 and ultimately I will save 60% of take home. Worried a little and wondering if it's still a good saving percentage.
Hey fishbowl fam! Have any of you recommended one of your students for Kumon, or put your personal child into their program? What are your thoughts from a teacher & parent perspective?
Anyone at RSM know how long you have to be at the firm to be eligible for the parental leave benefit?
Mamas that still bathe your children (meaning, your kids are not 14), do you put lotion on them afterwards? There is a debate in our house about whether this is truly necessary. I lotion myself after I bathe, so it's just natural to me that I would lotion my toddler. My husband hates lotion and has dry, cracked hands all winter 🙄
Has anyone heard of the Natalist? I found their Parent Plans book but the only reviews are directly on their site. Alternatively, are there any recommendations for books my husband and I can read to begin preparing to have a child? I can’t just get pregnant and figure it out, I need to try to go in informed (understanding that there’s no way to truly prepare). Expecting Better and Crib Sheets have very polar reviews and don’t quite fit the bill for me. TIA!
New moms, how did you manage new born? I am in this situation - no family support ( they can’t come due to flight ban from my home country) , me and my husband both have 3 months parental leave. I am due soon and dreading thinking about what should i do to prep for post delivery recovery, food and baby care. Please provide some insights 🙏
What would you do if you were out on a parental leave for 12 weeks? (Besides taking care of your newborn) Taking ideas!
I feel like since I've had my second baby I'm resenting my husband way more than I should be as I'm the breadwinner and he has more of a 9-5 job. He has some issues preventing him from moving up the

Thoughts on potential exit to Mid-Cap Cybersecurity company for a product data analyst job vs. privacy program manager at Facebook. Both jobs have very similar salaries but Facebook has sightly better benefits. Would like to end up at Microsoft or Google long term but am worried about Facebook being a resume killer given recent news. For reference, have worked at Deloitte for 2.5yrs in the Cloud Sec space (more strategy than tech)
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Hi 🐟s, I need to start prepping for case interviews and looking to find case partners to practice with. Anyone interested in partnering up to practice cases together? My burner is FBBurner2018@gmail
Seems obvious to me yet i still must ask to hear out the trade offs…. Non equity tech MD at a specialty business unit at MBB, or MD at a leading system integrator with public equity and significant total compensation increase? Feels like being a true MD and no second rate citizen status supersedes the MBB brand name if you’re not partner track.

Tik Tok has made me realize that I should’ve became a real estate developer. Instead I chose a path where I’m afraid to ask for 5% raise, and burn my brain 80 hours a week working for the man.

As an Indian visa worker in US, I feel Indian managers in ZS are very rude to me , one makes me work longer hours than white team members , never lets me present in workshops , and always criticizes. Last week I made a mistake in a internal report and he said that if I did that again he will book my flight to India. I have never faced this challenge with white managers. Is this a ZS thing or across all firms, I wish to leave because this treatment makes me feel like a lesser person
