i miss date night. small very shallow thing but with working from home, and doing that so much more, plus homeschooling and kid stuff there’s really no time alone that feels fun.
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?

Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
Key West vs Miami for a baby moon in December / January? Any Marriott recommendations for a low key getaway in either location?
I had a baby right before covid started and all of 2020 was spent struggling tremendously. I wore myself out and stretched myself out too thin . Now when I meet other moms, I spew out negatives about the entire motherhood experience. i can’t be a doting calm mother (I do love my kid). It makes me uncomfortable that I do this. I tried therapy and that didn’t help either.

How would you make the business case for adding more diversity to the workforce. I think we take it as a given that people will support this, but some people need to see $$ and #s to be moved.
What’s the salary for M1 in deals
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
I I have a interview with ey for a sap finance role. Can anyone help me with what the interview process looks like
Can any at will employer adjust your salary unilaterally like we’ve seen done at several firms this year? Asking because I’m looking at some job offers and not sure how to assess the likelihood of a salary cut especially if the firm has done it before? First instinct is that they won’t lower it soon just because they’d look terrible right? But legally they could?
Has anyone ever used one of the online case coach services? I’ve got a final round for an MBB and am considering using one for additional perspective.
What’s the worst career advice you’ve gotten?
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.
I currently make 60LPA in Hyderabad and my firm has an offer for 150k in Chicago. Is it worth? I am generally happy with the package in India and have good savings as I own my house in Hyderabad and I am not a lavish spender.
