Has anyone considered making the move to the corporate world? I work in admin for my nonprofit right now so I make a decent amount (53k) my benefits are unbeatable. PTO & sick time PLUS self care days. Flexibility. Etc. the one thing we’re lacking is structure and honestly im burnt out and overwhelmed with my work load and I know I could be getting paid around 10-15k more for similar work. Anyone gone to corporate and regretted it? Loved it?
What’s the best personal credit card?
Cancelling Amex Platinum at end of year. I can’t talk to that annoying automated lady one more time. Service on an insurance claim disappointing, and get most benefits via corporate Plat card already.

Just had a baby and considering buying a townhome near Prescott Elementary. We have been renting near burley/prescott and really like the neighboorhood. First time home buyer and new to the country (<5 years). A few questions (1) why does CPS get such a bad rap? (2) is it better budgeting private school expenses and factoring them into home purchase? (3) will our son stick out because we are colored and he's tiny, and are private schools safer bet from a bullying/inclusiveness standpoint?

Does Deloitte payout unused PTO if you resign? If so, at what rate or using what formula?
I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”
I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...
Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.
I'm pretty good at budgeting - the one splurge I have is that as soon as I got my first job I lived alone which I find extremely peaceful. I've never had an excellent roommate situation and after 2 years living alone I'm not sure I'd be the best roommate either. The financial benefits would be that I'd save $300-$350/mo splitting costs. For those that have FIRE goals what has been your experience with living alone in your 20s and was it ultimately worth it for you?
My creative marketing agency, Codeword, is hiring account people! Senior Account Managers, an Account Director, and Account Managers. We work with tech clients like Google, Linktree, Qualcomm, and others. The agency has about 80 employees, but is owned by a much bigger parent company so the benefits are great! Most of the roles are based in NYC but we also have offices in San Francisco and Salt Lake City.
Message me if you have any questions and I can possibly refer you!

What would you do? My father in law is rough with my young kids. A lot of this happens when he’s tired and they are moderately misbehaving (examples below). Tonight we were going to leave the kids for date night and I saw him be rough w my 2 and 4 yo. We canceled date night and talked to him. His response: well that’s the way I am. If you don’t trust me don’t leave your kids with me. How would you handle? I respect and look up to him which is why I regrettably allowed this to go on in the past.

I'm struggling to land roles in digital and social media marketing, mostly because of my audience, space, and budget, so I'd like to branch out and consider something else like Marketing Associate or Assistant positions, nothing with heavy mathematical use like analysts. How would I go about doing that?

What are you telling your employees about the payroll tax deferral? I’m hesitant to communicate anything because the information has been vague. After reviewing SHRM's document (linked in comments) it seems best to just opt out and share that with the company. What have you all shared with your teams, if anything, about it?
Client's budget is around $300K and would like an apartment on the East Coast / New England. Thoughts on if this is realistic?

Girls, co-workers often say that they put kids to sleep at 7-8 pm. How?!? Am I the only mom who wants to spend time with MY kids and feel guilty for not spending enough time with them?

FT working mom of a toddler. Really struggling with depression and anxiety, I think I need medication again but I’m so nervous because what I’ve tried before now makes me extremely tired.

Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother. I work from home in a very demanding job as a manager and I feel horrible that I have to sacrifice time with my children to work. I want to be successful at work and climb the corporate ladder, but at the same time my children don’t get the attention they need, especially my 6 year old that can barley read.
Looking for opinions - what could your employer do to help you stay productive through quarantine?
Hey moms , my 3 years old toddler suddenly demand more and more TV time and not eating by herself , insist on being fed even though she can do it herself and does it in daycare ! Taturams just seem to increased more and more (she has always been a stubborn kid , but now this is testing my mental strength )
Please share and tip or insight into this behavior!
I am a 32 year mom of a 8 year old. For the last 5+ years I am tired all the time. I could literally sleep 10 hours a night and love taking 2 hr naps during the day. I’ve gone to 3 diff family docs and all of them have run blood tests and came back normal. I work in PA so I do have a random sleep schedule but always get ~8hrs/night. Could it be a food allergy (like gluten) or slight deficiencies in several vitamins? Hormones that aren’t tested for? Any ideas?
Are there any remote jobs out there that allow for work-life balance? If you are working from home and have an elementary age child that is doing remote learning how are you balancing it all?
I’m a recruiter with 8 collective years of experience in the HR industry - mostly comprised of recruitment and employee relations. I’ve also been SHRM certified. Looking for a company with great culture, excellent career growth and career pathing options and a competitive compensation package with day 1 benefits. Remote only please.
Thought I’d post this here too!
I'm so burnt out at my job and honestly think I should have left years ago. I'm feeling lost in my search for a new career. I recently attended some webinars with career coaches andI'm in total sticker shock. The one package was 1000 just for a packet of info and 1 hour of the coach's time. This most recent one i attended sounds super promising with guided steps and more attention but the package is 5000. That caught me way off guard. Is it really worth hiring a coach?
Any McKinsey&co mums. I’ve been contacted by a recruiter to discuss a position. I’m a mum of two very young girls (<2) and I’m wondering if that option is worth discussing, given the demanding schedule in the company. I’m keen to work and be successful, but not happy to leave my girls for 3-4 nights a week. Any intel greatly appreciated 🙏
My husband isn’t a great parent and he have a toddler. He means well but doesn’t know how to handle children . We have been thinking about a second child. Although I would love two children, I am not sure if I would be making a mistake since one child was certainly a lot to handle for us. I also don’t want to have my child miss out on having a sibling either.
Interviewing but still on maternity leave…
I have six weeks left in my maternity leave and may be very close to getting an offer from a company but the topic of a start date has never come up and all of my exchanges with HR have been around interview availability and compensation… im nervous this will be awkward or could hurt my chances of getting this job. Idk what the right way to handle this is… like should I cut my mat leave short or see if they can wait for it to end?
I’m a first time mom(breastfeeding) of a 7 month old and returned to work this week.I’m allocated a short term project with a small team and looks like I might be the only point of contact(sole dependency) for the area I’m working on.
Now, what are some of the expectations I can set up with the team with only my husband who is on his paternity leave and I taking care of the baby right now.
Wondering if it’s even a good idea to accept this project. Please share your thoughts. Thanks!
There should be an app like a dating app, but for parents to find nearby compatible-risk, same-age playmates for our kids to pod with during covid. If you make one, I will let you have all the profits if I can just use it to get some social interaction without virus fears!
