4mo pregnant and having one of those hell project days where all I want to do is slam my computer shut and pour myself a Hendricks and Tonic and slowly melt into a puddle in the sunshine. ... Anyone got any good nonalcoholic coping mechanisms for these days?
My intern’s writing is good, but he is somewhat dumb and so not tech-savvy. He was trying to make charts from tables with numbers in text format today and asked me to help out. 🤷🏻♀️ Should I take the initiative to mentor this kid or just let it be? He is in grad school. I can’t sit around and teach him these basic things, though. His attitude is too lax as well. I asked him to fix the excel, and he was like, he’ll send it tomorrow. And that was 5 minutes of work. 😑 Or am I being too judgmental?
What are some of the best ways to ensure clients adopt the plan provided by your team after an engagement has ended?
I think I want to have a baby soon and husband is onboard .. might start trying by year end BUT I’m worried about career progression and I worry how we will manage everything. We both work in finance and busy season is tough. My parents are around so they can help but just looking for advice from super moms on how they manage it all
Told my pregnant sister yesterday for the first time that I don’t want kids (fear of having a special needs child + thinking of the world I would be bringing them into) and her first response was “not everyone wants to nurture and take care of others” and went on about how she has always been someone who takes care of others. It’s so upsetting that this is the kind of judgement women place on others when they say they don’t want children. Child free women how do you manage?
Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
So I was never a big chai drinker, but my husband is, and I have started having it once a day in pregnancy. I like having it as by baby girl becomes active ( she loves it apparently). Is it okay once a day ? I don’t have any other caffeine otherwise - soda, coffee, chocolates etc.
Baby just turned 6 month and I have been back to work for a month. Current company (in house) provides no WLB and I am thinking of going back to PA. SO thinks I am out of my mind, but I really need PA flexibility. Any advice?
I am hoping some people can help me here. My SO is in this horrible pit of depression and they are pushing me away. They have all these colliding events in the last few months: father has Alzheimer’s.
My husband wants to name our son after his brother who he loves a lot .i am so pissed that he yelled at me when I am 6 months pregnant and unable to do anything , will be the one going through labor just to have my son my BILs name as first name , my husbands name as middle name and last name of his family. FYI- me and BIL live in different countries and I have spoken to him handful of times over phone and that’s it . He doesn’t want to discuss any other names anymore.
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
Need advise from moms of 1 kid on what you did/doing to make sure your kids have social life. My SO comes from a big family so my kid has lots of cousins. All my SOs bro and sis have 2 or more kids so they don’t include my son in most things. It has gone to an extend he doesn’t want to meet fam for holidays or even face time. He gets possessive and annoyed around them. We have been trying for 2nd kid and It’s not easy with multiple rounds of IVF etc . Contd..
if my kid got divorced within a year of their wedding and i paid for it, i'd ask them to pay me back. i might be a terrible future parent.
The post earlier today about a sick baby and a bad manager hasn't left my mind. Tonight, I found the article linked in the comments. Fellow mamas, don't let this be you. This hit me hard.
Anyone have any intel on Office Of Baby?
Any experienced hires out there? Constantly feeling like the last kid picked for the kickball team.
New parents - how are you balancing work and childcare demands? Please share your tricks!!! It’s been 14 months since our first child and still struggling. Been waking up 4am to get work done, but plans often get derailed with unforeseen circumstances with childcare needs. And not to mention burnout with long days of staying up, for childcare, home and work routines. Context - male here, M, working spouse, 14 month baby, started daycare for few months now, no immediate family support to help.
Who has left their job as a consultant? What are you doing now? How did you get into that role?
The current administration has banned critical race theory-based diversity training across federal agencies claiming education around white privilege is anti-American. As someone who is dedicated to anti-racism work, I believe these conversations on the pervasiveness of systemic racism are necessary in order to dismantle the broken system and are central to our work as HR professionals. I fear what precedent this ban will set. Thoughts from other HR pros? https://www.forbes.com/sites/janicegassam/2020/09/05/trump-bans-diversity-training-claiming-its-divisive-anti-american-propaganda/
Fishes, looking for recommendations on growing business development and sales skills. Finding and growing pipelines, establishing marketing materials, closing sales, and similar for services. I have on the job experience within consulting but never any formal training or education. Entering a new role where I'll need to build organizational capabilities from scratch. Any recommendations on programs, certificates, courses, books, or other similar ideas would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
M&A tax manager 1 salary? CPA
Feeling stuck in my role, but unsure of my next move. Move agencies? Stick to social/PR? Acct mgmt? Get an MBA to become an eventual brand mgr? I’m so overwhelmed and feel like I have to specialize.
Got a verbal offer for a job that I want. The offer is pretty good too, more in line with the work I want to do, 40% raise in base salary, and other benefits are roughly the same. Waiting on the official offer, to come on Monday. The problem is, Stockholm syndrome is real, I keep feeling bad for leaving my team as busy season is kicking off. What are ways to deal with this “guilt”?
For those of you who are successful in your interview process and landed on an offer, did you feel like you ace every question they asked in in the interview and articulate perfectly? I’m a bit nervous now Bc I felt like I could have spoken better 😭😭😭😭
Broadly speaking, for a given generic consulting role, which B4 firm pays the most? Which pays the least?

Culture at LinkedIn in Business Intelligence within Global Ops and Strategy? (I think it’s for LMS)
Hi Fishes, Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.

First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
