Want to leave Deloitte. Any Philly company / office hiring for someone with 2-3 yr of experience in consulting?
What does it mean if you get feedback such as “know the room better?” I came across a team email that was addressed to my account team, and I approached my boss about my response to it. Then he gave me this feedback and told me not to engage in the conversation. Funny thing is a strategy lead just responded back to the team with the exact response I came up with, and my boss agreed with her...
Out of real, good paying work since November 2018. I’m depressed humiliated and furious. I get calls from recruiters an average of 3 times a week. I’v been ghosted more times than I can count. WTF????
LinkedIn is the new Facebook and it’s so annoying.

Nanny Pay Bump - We just had our second baby and I’m wondering what % of hourly wages or $ per hour increase those of you have provided to your nannies? We love ours and want to be sure to keep her but just wondering what “market” is.
For those who had miscarriages: did you do anything on the would-be due date to commemorate it? For ex- immediately after my miscarriage we went on a family trip as an escape/way of healing, and we collected a bunch of seashells. I got a little glass jar and am planning on putting the shells in it as a way of memorializing the loss for myself (it was 7 months ago, but passing the due date kind of wraps up the process for me - it certainly helps that I’m pregnant with a healthy baby currently).
How much do or would you pay your mom to take care of 0-4 year old? And does it change based on age?
so now that we are shifting towards a hybrid back to work in person model in September —is anyone scared for their children under 12? Adults can get vaccinated but children under 12 aren’t. there are also variants floating around —India was hit hard with something called “black fungus”, stemming from a variant. idk i’m still not comfortable until kids can also get vaccinated. is it just me?
Anyone have experience of the early pregnancy tests not working? I took a First Response test yesterday morning and saw a faint line but this morning I don’t see a faint line at all. Today is 3 days before my period.... feeling pretty discouraged...
Coming here to get positivity from all moms. All of my MBA classmate moms I know are super moms, able to nail their exam, give TED talks, promotion, big job change during pregnancy and when their babies are very small.
It's my turn to be pregnant. I'm so slow in my work, and I just failed my CFA exam. Our team announced promotion just now - people joined later than me got promoted before me now. I know I should prioritize myself at this stage, but I just feel bad...
Has anyone else been able to successfully work from home in a 900 sq. Ft. home with a family of 4 (1 newborn and 1 toddler) ? Spouse works outside of home.
Moms with diastasis recti, what helped? My baby is 18 months and my stomach is still the same. I’ve been doing few exercises and lifting weights (strength training). Will I be like this forever? 😭😭
Dreaded words from my 3 year old this morning: "mom come look what I did!"
He pooped on the floor. On the floor. WTF?! He's lucky he's cute is all I can say.
I am officially pregnant!!! First pregnancy after miscarriage in December. The end of the first trimester cannot get here fast enough!!
Seeking assurances that cry it out is worth it. How many nights did it take you? Hate those little cries!
Second pregnancy. With my first, I used Medela Sonata. Curious to see how Spectra S1, Buddha Baby, and Medela Freestyle Flex (newest one) compare in terms of efficiency, pumping time, draining out, etc. TIA!
Does anyone on here work for a mortgage company? If so, would you be able to share how much paid maternity leave (if any) you get? I’m putting together some information for my executive team to hopefully sway them to put a maternity leave program together. Thanks in advance!
My partner has a trip planned that we’ve all been prepping for (first time either of us have left the others in our toddler’s lifetime). Now I’m sick and feeling anxious to be alone with our toddler, who might also be getting sick. This trip is one that probably won’t happen again, so I don’t feel like I can ask him to stay, but how do I ask other people for help without getting them sick?
TL;DR: In what ways do you ask for help when you/your kid(s) are sick?
I’ve been back from Mat Lave for 6 months and recently sat down to meet with my new Supervisor to discuss future opportunities for advancement and express that I’m hoping to have a salary review soon.
He told me he agreed I was undervalued when reviewing my comp and mentioned a few times now that my maternity leave was a factor in me being underpaid - what do I do I feel heartbroken and discouraged? I feel so stuck - I love my work but how can I feel ok every day knowing this?
Ik this makes me a huge POS but I feel like I’m going crazy. I love animals, always have. I used to volunteer at shelters, dog sit for friends, even have 3 cats and 2 dogs. When I got pregnant the 1st time, suddenly everything they do pisses me off. I tossed it up to pregnancy hormones, but it’s been 2 years since my first and I’ve had a 2nd since. I don’t act out, but I can’t stop the constant thoughts of how much I hate them. Breathing, licking, all of it enrages me. Will this ever pass? 💔
Anyone else struggle to conceive on their second child? It’s so baffling as we had no trouble getting pregnant right away twice (one ended in miscarriage) the first time we were trying. Now, every month that we get a negative it feels a month further apart my kids will be & the sadder I get. Any advice? I’ve already been to the Dr. & everything checked out and been tracking my ovulation with tests & apps. How long did it take some of you to conceive 2nd kid if it took time?
Has anyone considered job sharing before?
