So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
Anyone go back part time after maternity leave in big law? I have the option but I don’t understand how it would work. Don’t want a paycut if I’m inevitably going to work similar hours rather than just trying to take on a little less work.
A close friend is having an (unexpected) kid and want to get him a good $100 burbon. Was thinking EH Taylor if I can find it but could be convinced otherwise. Any thoughts?
Recently restarted strength training. I had my baby about a year ago and my tummy (37.5 inches at the belly button) is just huge. Checked with my gyno and she rules out Diastasis Recti and said all of it was just fat 🥲Any ladies who had luck with strength training and reducing tummy fat? I’m not looking at immediate results or even spot reduction- just curious how it looks like after a year or two. Female , 32 year old.
First kid moving to kindergarten. So confused about schools (first generation immigrant here). Please help a fellow fish out: 1. Where do I find the schools ratings? It’s confusing online 2. Does it matter between 7/10 vs 6/10 schools? 3. What’s the advantage of a better rated school? If it’s just rating wouldn’t it change every year?
Haven't owned a set of golf clubs since i was a kid. Looking to get a cheap set for the occasional round (maybe 3-4 rounds a year). I am short (5'5'-5'6'), any recommendations? Thinking about getting a Teen set.
How long is maternity leave at your current gig? I was just informed I can only get 8 weeks...
Hi all! I’m doing some research on parental leave policies to make a case to improve ours. How many weeks does your policy offer? Does it differ between “primary” and “secondary” caregiver? Birth vs other means of growing your family? I’m particularly interested in independent shops, but would love to hear from folks at the network agencies as well. It you could comment with your agency name, I’d be super grateful. Thank you thank you! ❤️

Now that my school is completely in-person, I’m noticing that the students who were online last year are pushing back on everything we do in school. Following the most basic of rules, directions, or fun is a struggle. I teach 8th grade, but I coach in the high school. I’m seeing it across the board. Is anyone else seeing this too? Is your school or district addressing it with any preventative measures social-emotional supports?
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Deloitte: I see there is an HR policy that allows you to go 60-80% whenever you want to/in any role so long as there is a business case. Does this ever happen in consulting? Is it more likely to be approved in certain groups/with certain skills? I’m thinking it might be feasible to stay here if I could could go on a reduced schedule after baby 2. If that’s something I could work towards and prepare for in the year or so prior, I’d like to set myself up well for it! Any insight is appreciated!

Hello fishes, can someone guide me on what kind of work exists in PwC SDC India? I have been offered a role as Senior Associate-Tech Strategy in PwC SDC. Being a management graduate with around 7 YoE, will it be a wise decision to move to PwC SDC? I have another role with a major IT services firm, which is giving me an option to work on their strategic initiatives. Though the offer from PwC is way lucrative, I am not very keen on immersing myself into technology side of things.
