How is it that you can fly with a baby in your lap with no seatbelt—yet laptop in the seat back pocket is not allowed. I promise you getting hit with a projectile baby is gonna hurt!!
I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)
What is your company’s paternity leave policy (paid/unpaid, number of weeks)? For those who took it, how was the experience (at home and at work)?
Supply chain Folks. I have a friend who is looking to get back to work after maternity hiatus of a few years. She was a buyer. She wants to pursue CSCP. Will it help her chances of landing a job? Tks!
Mamas, how much did you spend on maternity clothes? I’ve had some gifted and bought some support tanks and leggings and looking to invest for the last 4 months. Probably one-and-done, so won’t reuse
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
I wake up at 4:30 AM to have some me time. Even on weekends! Life after a kid has changed so much!! When will things go back to normal 🧐

Baby outgrew the nuna pipa in his 6th month… what car seat would you all recommend? Kinda confused and haven’t done enough research around this because I thought this day wasn’t coming around for atleast another year! Apparently not! Any recommendations on what we could go for?
Thoughts on quitting during parental leave?

Hypothetical here: you are a parent and your child got into two schools for undergrad. The first school is a US top 30 University out-of-state, but you have to pay full sticker price ($60k+ per year). The second school is a good in-state university and 20% the cost. If your child goes in-state, you agree to invest the residual ($50k per year) in an S&P 500 fund that releases upon graduation. What is the best outcome for your child?
I hate when “Instagram models” try to follow me and ask me to subscribe to their only fans. I am a newly married man with a child….
I am currently on maternity leave. I missed utilization targets because of travel restrictions and was not rated highly for my performance last year. I am concerned I could be laid off when I return or before - my federal and state protection for pregnancy has ended. This is making me very anxious and not letting me enjoy my bonding time with my little one. Any advice on how I can change my mindset or be more calm is much appreciated. Thanks!!
I'm in my last trimester with my first child! Was wondering if the mommas of the group share any tips on navigating motherhood, and juggling career and family? What were some of the highlights and challenges?
My wife and I are due with a baby girl in few weeks. Still not aligned on the last name though. In our community it's the first name of the father which typically becomes the last name of the child. Considering she has put in most of the effort and carried the child for 9 months I strongly feel the last name of the child should be her first name though. I would like my name as the middle one. Don't see why this system continues to be patriarchal.
For those of you with immediate family members who are at high risk, how are you doing? I find myself being very anxious and stressed about my father getting sick.
In a week, I have a black tie wedding coming up at a beautiful indoor/outdoor city venue. I’m stumped about a dress because I’m also 3 weeks postpartum from my first child. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy and have already lost 35 since the birth. (It’s amazing how much of it was just baby + bloat!) I am looking for a dress that will hide the mommy tummy (some loose skin that’s still tightening). I’m also nursing and my boobs are HUGE rn. Any recs on how to try to dress this new body?? 🥲
You have a Zoom interview. You wear a nice top that will be seen. Are you still wearing sweats on the bottom, or dressing up fully?
Would you take a job with this many red flags if you were desperate to get out of public? If so, what salary/comp would you need? 1. I’m interviewing for an Assistant Controller role at a medium-sized manufacturing company. 2. The interview process has consisted of 7 rounds (2 phone interviews and 5 separate Teams calls). 3. I’ve had to prepare multiple PowerPoint presentations. 4. The job positions of the VP of Finance and Controller (both of whom I interviewed) were just posted LinkedIn.
What’s the expected base salary for an incoming senior consultant at Deloitte with 4+ years experience at another consulting firm?
Question for sisters from a brother: when married or if you’re already married, do you plan to contribute financially for big things like mortgage? I’d never ask my future wife to contribute but if she worked and made a good salary I’d appreciate a more equal approach when it comes to paying off our house. This is only for the peace of mind it would give us. Also wouldn’t make sense if my wife was in a time consuming high stress career but not contributing in the home or financially. Make sense?

Hi Guys, Join this bowl to share your IT industry expertise and interview experience and salary offered for different skillsset
Recently I moved to a new practice within PwC. I got my H1B approval notice extended and amended to meet the requirements of a new job role.

Has anyone encountered this before ? Any help is appreciated here

I’m working in-house…no timesheets, title I asked for, good salary (6 figures), remote, pretty much done at 5p. No, the work isn’t riveting, but that’s what side projects are for! Stick it out until I get restless, but nice to stop hustling so hard. (Accepting that I may never get a Lion.)
