Moms, I am 23 weeks pregnant. Is it ok for me to have canned tuna? I have been craving it but worried tuna has mercury and cans have BPA. Thank you!
Which firm has the best paternity leave policy?
The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
Gift idea for my mom who has been helping so much with baby? She’s not into designer items. Was thinking furniture or a new car when prices calm down but those can’t be surprises. She’s very covid conscious, or would love to take her on a nice spa day or vacation. No price limit.
I am sincerely asking for advice, not criticism. I have been w/ my boyfriend for 2 years, & I love him dearly. I have a history of being in toxic relationships. My friends call me a chaos addict. I grew up in poverty, and I’m the only one in my family who didn’t battle addiction. I was also a victim of sexual, physical, verbal, & emotional abuse from a step parent I love my bf more than anything, & I do not want to break up, but I keep fantasizing about cheating on him (Cont. in comments)
Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
@Deloitte/Pwc folks: Do you need to work a certain amount of time at the firm before being eligible for parental leave?
Any ideas for a gift for a pregnant recommender? Initial idea was whiskey but obv that doesnt work anymore
Can you get fired while you are pregnant in NJ? My work has been slightly affected due to what I am going through but my manager sent me a long email today pointing the things that had to be fixed. We have weekly one on one calls to discuss work. Maybe they are collecting evidence before firing me.
I recently found a new job and am (finally) making as much as my husband even though historically I’ve made significantly. We’ve recently purchased our home and also have a child on the way. My husband insists that because I now make as much as him, I should kick in half of the mortgage, car loan, and utilities (I pay about 40% now). I feel this is an unfair ask because as head of household, the man should shoulder more of the financial responsibility. He says it’s the 21st century…
Friends, I highlighted and denied working late because of my child. I was performing good but not in the eyes of my manager. He gave me the worst rating and my scatterplot is at the middle of quadrant 3 behind all SCON at my level. This is also because one SCON at my level is manager’s favourite and I joined recently. Can I expect some increment or what will happen to variable? Please guide me saviours!! Also my coach is supporting me and has given a very good rating.
I was told that I won’t be considered for my promotion to SM this year end because I’m on maternity leave. This sounds sketchy given that I did everything in my power to prepare before I went on mat leave. Now I’m pushing my coach and leadership to let me go up for promotion in an off cycle promotion. Is this fair and normal or is this a sign I need to look for a new job and resign? I feel like I’m being punished for being on maternity leave.
SC on my team micromanages me and another consultant. Manager seems to support it and only critiques our work but not his (writing I mean). We’re all adults here but this feels like I’m a kid smh
I have a rather long question. If I run out of space, I will continue in the first comment. I sponsor a GSA. There is a trans student who is always making sardonic comments in inappropriate times. We were talking recently, and every time a student bared their soul, this kid would make a joke out of it. The students who were speaking felt that they were not heard, and all of the attention was focused on this trans student.
We are visiting my in laws for Christmas. My husband and I got our covid test but then my husband wanted our toddler to also get a covid test. I refused to let someone take a giant swab and inserting this down my toddlers throat. If my kid has Covid -I’m sure we would have it too. This was a huge scene when I refused.
Hi, I’m currently on parental leave and interested in doing some minor side huddling like case coaching or college essay editing etc. Something consultants can do well and easily. Are there known websites/ forums to offer these services and get connected to clients?
Had a spontaneous spring clean tonight -- it felt great and makes me want to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle.

Any AWS fishies about? Curious about your ops teams. Are you wfh for the foreseeable future or back in the office already?
Hey guys I’m staff2 in audit and will be promoted to senior in June. I would expect around 25-30% raise. Currently 100% remote work & don’t see going back to the office soon. Also, I need to pay 20k bonus back for breaking retention period. I recently got an offer for a valuation consultant position at mid size firm with 15% raise and go to office 3 days a week. Feel like valuation position is more attractive in long term but think getting lowballed extremely. What do you think?

Do you value wlb over money? Those who made the switch did you think about a $ figure you needed and worked to find a job that met that. Did you make sacrifices in the type of work? Struggling on if I chase the dollar or just start enjoying life / hobbies. I feel so burnt out but still not making much in Canada in consulting
