Anyone taken a pregnancy leave ahead of maternity leave? Doctor wants me to avoid labor this time around ahead of a planned C. I’m in CA but firm isn’t CA based.
My wife and I moved to a new city so we could be closer to her family because we’re having a baby. We’ve been here for a few months now and I haven’t made any friends. It doesn’t help that I’m fully remote. I’m not depressed as I’ve got so much going for me right now, but the only way I can describe it is that I’m beside myself. Not sure what this post is really, just tired of sounding like a broken record.
What credentials do you need to get into MBB. I have a 4 yr B.E undergrad and an MIS grad degree. Worked for an IT services firm for 2.5 years, Deloitte for a year and now KPMG. Any tips?
I have a first grader who has a 2 sec attention span. I have to use a scripted ELA curriculum with lots of talk but not much writing. She NEEDS to do something focused on the lesson. Any ideas? TIA
Ergonomic home-office chair recommendations?
Has anyone ever been hired for a job you were definitely not qualified for? How did it go? I have been interviewing for a position with a higher title + different industry + different role than what I am doing today and somehow I keep moving on to the next round. Am I just imposter syndrome-ing myself or is this a bad idea?
Is white the only acceptable shirt color for an interview? Do we always have to be so still and conservative?
Has anyone ever quit their current role without having their visa documents finalized/completed?
About to pull the trigger on an uplift v2 standing desk and I live in a 710sqft apt. I'm considering either 48x30, which fits perfectly in a nook beside my couch, or do I push it and get 60x30? It won't fit in the nook, but will still fit in-between couch and the wall. Nervous about moving into a smaller apt at some point and being stuck with a large desk.
I’ve been proposed an exit as Product Owner at a real company, not a consulting one. Staff seems nice, good culture, good salary (less than consulting but well), BUT I would have to move countries for that job and start a new life. I’ve also been proposed a Manager position at a consulting company in my home city, with potential of bigger salary thanks to bonuses. Culture seems good... But I’m sure it’s gonna be a hell lot of work. Which one would you take? Should I exit and never look back?
For schengen visa application, how did you get the insurance letter in the required format? Corporate insurance or separate international insurance? How expensive is it?
Can somebody pls explain this to me: if somebody has a medical emergency and needs to use short term disability, the firm says they need to pay for all of their other benefits at the full rate, not the employee discounted rate, so like $400 for health insurance instead of $100. Do they ever reimburse this money or is this the terrible setup they have if you need to use your disability benefits? I feel like I'm missing something.

I’ve just had 2 jobs tell me I’d need to provide a SOW or estimate my time needed for each project assigned. Is this normal? Sign of the apocalypse?
if you take short term disability before your mat leave, does that cut into your mat leave time?
If there’s a manager that plays favoritism when delegating tasks, what can I do to get more difficult tasks? I’m clearly given intern-level work when my work quality isn’t bad. (Continued)
Anyone ever deal/dealing with severe physical symptoms of anxiety? Weakness, constant tension/pressure in back of head. All medical evaluations have come back normal. This makes no sense.
Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants. But this week I’ve started experiencing pretty nasty dizziness/vertigo, which came on suddenly Monday morning. I don’t know if it’s just the latest physical symptom of burnout (which has been making me sick a lot lately) or if I’m experiencing some kind of side effect from the new meds.
