First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! Hoping you all get a much-needed break today and do something for yourself ❤️
Have you dated a man with a child? What are healthy boundaries between your S/O and the mother of his baby? I want to be understanding but a part of me knows that there will always be something “more”
Prayers up for my fellow consultants having to travel on this Father’s Day Sunday. Sucks. 🙏
"So just like they say to look to the mother before choosing a wife, take a peek at your bosses to see what the future holds for you" LOL
Can't afford medical treatments because I didn't opt out of basic UHC health insurance. Under 26 & covered under dads insurance. Dads insurance covers my costs. D & UHC don't care. Tough luck, kid?
Has anyone tried stealthing in a corset or cincher until their waist returns to normal after baby? Also open to hearing from 🐠 who waist train as well.
Has anyone gotten the COVID vaccine while pregnant? If so, care to share your experience? Currently debating whether to get it (I’m 21 weeks) or wait till after birth…
What do parents do if their child is choiced and don't want their child to go to school? Will they lose choice? We haven't heard what's going on in this part.
Passed BEC! Three down one more to go baby 💋
First Facebook offer 4 months paid parental leave, now Deloitte. Respect! 👍👍👍 We need more firms doing that!
Any advice of how to get a dog when the rental has a no pet policy? I really could use a fur baby in my life
Anyone started a new job while pregnant? How’d you work out maternity leave as sometimes you’d have to be with the company for a year.
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
Anyone actually more motivated to remain in consulting since having kids? Sometimes wonder if I will feel that way after (currently pregnant) because I can provide well financially for my child...
Any single moms who raised boys? My first kid, I grew up as an only child with no brother, and really clueless as to how to raise a boy. I’d have an easier time with a girl since I kinda know how
So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
Just found out I’m pregnant (only 5 weeks so still a bit to go before I tell anyone really). After I’m farther along and everything is confirmed with doctors, when do I start telling people at work? Due in mid May.
If I’m starting on a 100% travel engagement and my parents live an hour away from my home office & they’ve been begging me to move on back home, is it worth keeping an empty in my home city?
Anyone have experience with CSR trip insurance? Need to move up flight back home given the impending hurricane. We’re here now. What’s the process? Airline or chase (booked with CSR points air+htl)?
How do you handle keeping the kids at home and both parents WFH? Do you take turns? Specifically, do you explain to your teams that babies need tending to throughout the day?
Which McKinsey office is bigger - LA or SF? Especially for operations/implementation practice. Is there any culture difference?
Any tips on trying to network and interview while on the road constantly? Trying to exit into strategy & ops roles at startups it’s incredibly hard to network while traveling
Can anyone offer color on salery levels moving from a global advertising agency to the the advertising/digital practice of a Big 4 or MBB consultantcy? Is it similer to the strategy consultant pay or is it it's own level?
Looking to get into healthcare somewhere in the big 4! Someone point me in the right direction! No real preference what firm as long as the healthcare team is strong...any advice?
Have anyone taken flight lessons before?
Anyone works in North Highland consulting who can provide some insight about company culture and work environment
Company made an offer below my current compensation, even after I submitted my current compensation for proof. Is that normal or are they just taking advantage of a flooded job market?
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

Hi Fishes, I have recently joined PwC SDC as an Associate 2. Wanted to know that is there any smartphone reimbursement or mobile phone program here. TIA!

For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification. After being laid off in May, I decided to pursue my coaching business full time. My question is, for those who have sought out coaching, which area of your life did you focus on first and why?
At family reunion and playing Monopoly Deal (first to $1M wins) with younger cousins. Crushed them. Teaching life lessons. 👌
Think it’s a bad idea to switch from Big 4 to a small firm right before tax reform is signed?
