I am in the final negotiations with KPMG and GT for positions which should be promotions and big salary increases. (SM to Director) Problem is... I found out this morning I’m pregnant. (Continued)
Am noticing some forehead wrinkles developing as I went to bed last time. Super stressed (which I know doesn’t help) but wondering what creams you ladies have been using to manage your skin. Mother did not develop these wrinkles until her late 50s...I’m 23! What to do?
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
Help! My toddler doesn’t want to eat anything but cheese and fruit and peanut butter. We have been trying the “you provide, they decide” thing but her decision is to not eat. She’s always been small and doctor said we need to get her weight up. Any ideas or recipes? Getting desperate!
Stay safe Chicago.
Any recommendations on double-strollers? Also, will have a nearly 2 yr old + new baby. How long do kids typically tolerate / continue to use strollers?
Do you ever contemplate suicide, (without serious intent) over work frustration/stress? Having a really rough week and afraid I’m going to burst into tears if I explain to my team, but also don’t want to look like a baby.
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
Last night I was looking through pictures on my phone. I was such a happy kid and young adult and even after joining the firm I’m at I was happy for 2ish years…..the past 4 have been awful and depressing though. Man I wish I could go back to that time and do things over.
Had 4 beers, 12 chicken wings, and a giant piece of cake. I'm going to sleep like a baby! And might have to go for an hour long tomorrow. But first things first, 💤
My pregnant wife's blood work came back indicating 1 in 250 chance of down syndrome. With out first it was 1 in 3000. We are freaking out. Has anyone been thru this what was your experience.
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
Going back to work after 4.5 months of maternity leave tomorrow. I’m utilizing PwC’s 60% phased return to work program so hopefully that will help ease the transition. Wish me luck! Any tips, tricks?
Currently on parental leave. As a father I’m so dang thankful my firm has it and I can’t imagine how my immigrant parents manage to raise two kids without leave.
Going around the room saying what we were thankful for... my wife says, “for our growing family.” Looks like Baby #2 is on its way! She said I couldn’t tell anyone yet, so I’m telling just you guys 😍
Today would have been my baby shower. I’m so sad we couldn’t spend this gorgeous day with family and friends but I’m so thankful they took time to call, text, FaceTime and send tons of gifts. ❤️
When is it okay to ask about maternity leave when looking for a new job? When I receive the offer letter and benefits information?

Hey Fishes, trying to benchmark my salary here… senior associate, advisory, tier 2 city, big 4, 7 yoe in consulting, although less in the current community. What would be a good range?
So, work from home, mindless spreadsheet work, no more meetings today. Acceptable to have a beer or two while I slog through?
Quick scenario: If I have a consulting offer from a different Big 4 that has a start date post-10/15, so that in theory I would not have to submit a 2 weeks notice until post-10/1 (bonus payout date) but I sign the offer pre-9/30, am I obligated (looking for both legal & professional standpoint) to tell PwC because it is with a competitor? This is essentially the exact same group at the other big 4

I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
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!

New CNN poll:
My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
