Any moms here living in WA state and availed the 12 weeks parental leave( baby bonding time off) offered by the state recently?
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
Why does the third party recruiter I am using perform reference checks, and not HR/hiring manager from the firm I am interviewing with? Curious.
Hi ladies! Is anyone happy at their job? If so, where are you and are you open to chatting?
This is for ACN fish or ex acn fish. The project I'm on (more like a staff aug but we're there to support the client deliver their internal project) isn't doing well. I'm new to ACN - well, big consulting in general, so trying to understand what that means for us, and for me? (Also, for context - I'm one of the 4 SM's on this engagement (it's a large client and we have a 10+ team)). Continued in comments below...
Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
On hold for a project that seems like it's never going to start. Torched my already not great utilization
Had many rounds for role in a tech company that I did not end up getting. The hiring manager mentioned that there were more roles in his org and he would be reaching out if the role I applied does not work out. Would it be creepy to reach out and express my interest on other roles ( it has been 2 weeks since I got a reject) ? Really liked the company and the work they are doing.
Best SPG in PDX?
How has your WFH experience during the pandemic impacted (or not) your sense of loyalty / willingness to sacrifice for: - your team - your client - your firm
After watching succession it lowkey felt like it was written about the Ford family. Around the time I was watching the show I met bill ford at some event I help organize at the train station being rebuilt. Thought I was on the come up. Couple months later I was laid-off/fired ahah. Wasn’t even a mid manager was just an entry level employee lololol.

Age and 401k/ IRA balance? Mine: 33, $125k
I had a baby right before covid started and all of 2020 was spent struggling tremendously. I wore myself out and stretched myself out too thin . Now when I meet other moms, I spew out negatives about the entire motherhood experience. i can’t be a doting calm mother (I do love my kid). It makes me uncomfortable that I do this. I tried therapy and that didn’t help either.
I swear to god the maids at the Westin intentionally point that little handheld shower apparatus straight at you so when you turn on the shower...
Moms.. anyone have a mother’s helper with you at home during after school hours for a few hours so you can work while they watch your kids and help with housework? What’s the going rate (DMV area)?
I feel like Work Well Be Well is a complete joke. How on earth can any firm talk about mental or physical health when we are working 15 hours a day for weeks on end?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
