Looking to exit out of consulting ASAP due to a toxic culture but getting stuck at where to start, I feel like consultants are the jack of all trades and I could step into different roles. Where did you all start?
I had the perfect childhood, and would do anything to be able to recreate it for my kid. But the world I grew up in doesn’t exist anymore and it breaks my heart.
What does everyone do on the weekend? I feel like most people I know spend Friday and Saturday going out which is getting kind of old to me.
Argh. Turn on the air in the cabin please. We are all melting. Why does this happen so often? Doesn’t the ground power supply provide enough juice?

Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education.
Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
Is there a law that says if you freelance for a company for more than a month, you can sign up for their healthcare?
I was offered a partnership at a small firm I used to work at before my current also small firm. We had come to terms and I expected to inform my current firm. To my surprise, my current firm made me a significant offer to stay. Not a partnership, but making more money and better benefits. I’m torn because the other firm is under the impression I’m coming in as a partner. But I can’t turn away from the significant offer I have from my current firm, where I enjoy working. Any advice/thoughts?
Anyone here looking for an accounting manager in industry? I have five years of experience including regional firm, Big 4, and industry.

What are some signs that your GF has a controlling personality? GF made a remark to me that she’s looking for someone who jumps when she says jump, and that she wishes I wouldn’t “talk back” to her when I provide an opinion that is the opposite of hers. I want to confront her about some of these remarks, but I oftentimes don’t feel it’s worth it b/c I know she’ll blow up and get defensive which would only make me angrier and more frustrated. I want things to work out, but I need advice…
My mother in law is a really annoying helicopter mom and drives me crazy. My husband never had to do anything for himself so he’s clueless about basic life stuff (no checkbook or credit cards, things like that). How do I navigate the relationship with MIL and how do I not get annoyed at him for things like that that pop up? Can anyone relate?

Having twins! 10 weeks pregnant. Meeting with genetic counselor tomorrow to discuss testing options. I’m honestly leaning towards CVS… I want to know as much info as possible at highest accuracy. Did anyone else opt for that kind of invasive testing? Why/why not? The fact that I’m having twins is what’s making me want to jump to that level of invasiveness…
Found out I am pregnant 2 days after receiving a job offer. New job is paying 45% more and more in responsibilities. I am super excited and ready for the new role. In negotiation stage now. Is is bad form if I withheld that info during negotiation - given I’ll be working for maybe 5 months then have to take 4 months off. What’s the industry courtesy?
I feel like my mum only ever looks for me when she wants money. Once i send it’s all good for her. I’m going through a lot being pregnant for the first time but she hardly randomly asks how I’m doing. Doesn’t even check on how preps for baby are going. PS my dad is late so she’s my best only parent.

How many of you ladies are planning or ended up being a stay at home mom post maternity leave? I'm really considering it because I've always desired to stay home for a few years in child's first few years of life and we can afford it, but I'm also feeling a little sheepish about my work reputation and losing a great role (since I would have to quit). This will be my first child, FYI
