How many of you are sending your kids to daycare? I’ve been on maternity leave and joining in the next few weeks. Planning to send the toddler to daycare and keep the baby home but freaking out if we get the virus home. We have pretty much been home these last few months. But I don’t know how me and my husband could possibly manage both kids while working from home. Anyone keep two kids home and manage work? Any tips ...

Hi guys From my parent company I have resigned and I work for a client.My parent company did not inform my client that I am leaving .Now my client is asking why are you leaving? I said because of compensation and now client is saying ,should I ask my parent company to resolve my issue? What should I do? My parent company did not increase my compensation for 1 month after putting my papers? Any suggestions?
I'm not a mom yet (don't kick me out of the group!) but have been going through fertility and IVF treatments for more than 6 months. I'm constantly having bloodwork, appointments and calls with the doc during working hours. Any advice on what I can and should tell my team about my health? They can tell I'm in and out of the doctor's office and I suspect they think I'm pregnant. Maybe it's being chock-full of hormone pills, but I'm sensitive about everyone thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.
Random question but do you let your kids hang out in your bedroom and use your master bath if applicable? My kids always seem to want to use our bathroom instead of theirs and my spouse doesn't care but I grew up with my parent's room basically being off limits and think I'd prefer it that way.

Why are firms still so obsessed with geography? I applied to this firm’s Boston office because I loved the firm, culture, and practice, and half of my interview was about Boston. Sigh.

Has anyone started traveling yet? Client’s city has not had an outbreak and I’m slated to travel soon. I’m fairly nervous and refuse to fly so looking at driving 5-6 hours.

My shop got back to the office and whenever we have a client/vendor call and they are all still remote I feel so embarrassed to be dialing in from a room full of people. Just make us look like morons.

Has anyone joined a team that is all full time remote, with people in different countries and time zones? How has the onboarding process been? Have you been able to form a connection with your team? Considering some opportunities but very skeptical of how this would all go down and if it would be super lonely and depressing. There may not be a chance to actually meet people and have that bond with your co-workers that makes work bearable
Would you choose a lower offer for 160k TC (also bc one level lower) over a 200k TC offer if you genuinely thought the experiences gained at the first would benefit more in the long run? The first midmarket company has consistently grown ~30% each year, will reach $1B soon. The second is a slower growing multi-billion dollar company already. Concerned about personal growth also slowing with slower culture 5 yoe and current TC is 120k, so either is a nice bump
