Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Hey moms. Need some help. 3 month old baby spits up a lot about a half hour to one hour after feeding formula. He’ll be sitting in bouncer or boppy and it just comes out. We’ve been using the same formula since about when he was born so not sure why this happening now. And I do burp him after feeding but if one burp comes out then I consider it one and done. Thoughts?...
Need advice from more experienced fishes. How much should I increase my FSA contribution if I plan to (try to) get pregnant next year?
What consulting company is best for WLB? I like my job as a consultant but I cant see it being sustainable if I choose to have a kid. Any suggestions on where to work?
Do you buy your kids a car when they turn16?
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
Best examples of ramp back programs from parental leave? I get to choose my own adventure and am curious what’s worked well for others. Minimum hours required hasn’t been stipulated. Thanks!
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
How do you cope when you’re overwhelmed? I’ve been working until 11pm the past two weeks minus 1 day (bc it was my birthday) and I see no end in sight. We are short a few people (quit, parental leave, etc) and only have a few associates left in my group so I am getting everything from 6 partners when I am truly only responsible for 2. I know taking time for working out/etc is helpful but I don’t have the time because I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep or I can’t function. Sigh.
So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.
Serious question. Are there gay males who co-parent with lesbian couple? How did you make it work and what is your experience with it?
Hi all, I got offer from Deloitte and UST global. I want to join Deloitte actually.I have a baby of 7 months old, and seeing the wlb reviews about Deloitte I am kind of scared to go for it. Could you please let me know whther most of the projects in Deloitte are like that ? I need to join in 2 weeks and yet confused which to go for.
We have dependent care FSA money that we're not going to use this year. My understanding is that we can be reimbursed for child care expenses provided by family members if it was during the work day. Any risk with doing so, if let's just say, our family member was only here in spirit? Any other ways to recoup that money easily?
Hubby and I found out we are pregnant last week! 5 weeks today (according to my cycle)! We are so thankful and excited!
Anyone ever buy baby gifts from Etsy? Best friend is having a baby (he will be like a nephew to me) and want to buy a personalized blanket or something with his name. Never bought if etsy before though - nervous about it.
I was swiping on my friends tinder and stumbled upon an old friend’s husband. The friend who’s tinder I was on doesn’t know him so I told her to talk to him. It really seems to be him and I don’t know what to do. I haven’t talked to my old friend since we graduated college and they have a child together. From her social media posts they seem to be very happy together.
Just found out I have a much older half sibling (surprise to him too) and not sure how to feel about it. Sounds like my dad had a fling before he married my mom and TBH I don't think he knew he had another kid either. The girl seems to have been between 2 guys and when she got prego she thought it was the others who ended up raising him 🤦. Idk if I should cut this guy off, I'm mostly afraid that he'll try to seek some sort of monetary claim from whatever my late dad left behind. Thoughts??
Tsla ATH baby. Day for celebration. 🎉

I'll never be a managing director. Probably will never reach more than 500k/yr salary. I'm content about it. What stark realizations about your career have you arrived at?
Hello fishes, I have an offer from another MNC which offered me 20LPA for my 11 year of experience Now Capgemini is trying to retain me for the same and offering me the same package (20 LPA) and release from current project with opportunity for a different role(architect/manager) which didn't happen in 1 year of fight so far. Current role: Team Lead. Please share your thoughts.
Currently have both the Amex platinum and chase sapphire reserve (just got the Amex). Thinking of dropping CSR. Would having both Amex Plat + Gold be a good combo for benefits (lounges, clear, global entry etc.) and points / rewards? (While not being an insane combo in terms of fees like CSR + Amex Plat would be).

Going into Friday before comp release and no leaks yet (or publicly known). Unfortunately sounds like Deloitte IT may not screw up this year.. :(
2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?

Good day all! I am seeking successful female attorneys ~ those who've paved their own paths ~ to tell their stories, of what’s possible, to inspire other females ~ those who want to bail on big law, grow their own law practices, focus on a family, or even seek something... well... totally different for her career...for my podcast. The podcast is conversational, not formal interview style. DM if you have a story to tell, or if you know someone who does!
