Pregnant, just got a new job offer. I need to drop the pregnancy bomb now (I’m 24 weeks along). Really looking for any advice on how to say this in negotiations. I really want to see if I can negotiate our maternity leave. Also want to break the news in a way where they don’t feel deceived.
Happy Monday all! I am working on a panel discussion with 3 business leaders for increasing young female talent/pipeline in Tech with an inclusion lens.

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
I'm having a baby 😊😊😊
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)

Inheritance in india- Have a significant inheritance in india that I’m looking to invest/park somewhere safe. Anyone know what can be done? I don’t like land due to the “black money” component that will be hard to liquidate and bring here.

Only child so no sibling to trust investments/money with in case I wanna put it in a business there.
Is healthcare in America really that bad? Are there many people who want/need healthcare who are unable to get it? I was watching this video and am wondering: is this the model America should (not can) adopt?
Having a hard time figuring out where to buy a long term house. We both work in the city, and have a kid. We want decent space (is a yard too much to as for?), good schools, nice town, walking distance to the train. Yes - I’m hoping unicorns do exist. So far something like Bronxville and Scarsdale seem like good options. Open to checking out other towns in any region as long as the commute to Bryant park is close to an hour. Any suggestions?
Companies need to not dilute diversity with this whole diversity of thought jibberish - there are real issues re: bias, race, gender and respect in the workplace. Education around how to build better

Just wanted to point out that the "I have a micromanaging manager" post below didn't call out the manager's gender, the way that people do when they're complaining about their female managers.
Is it safe to say the diversity at a megafund like Apollo or Blackstone or KKR is extremely low?
Someone in an HR session asked how Diversity and Inclusion retention/promotion efforts could negatively impact people who aren't "diverse." That's a bad look bruh.

Anyone here work for Accenture? Curious on the culture and what diversity looks like there.
When did you feel like you were successful? People around me think it’s impressive that I work at Deloitte; however, I’m miserable and hate the work I’m doing. Just accepted another job that others would deem a dream company and salary but I’m just afraid of being miserable there too. I just don’t feel like I’m good enough, will be happy, or be in a position where I feel like I’m successful as others.

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
