Weddings! Those planning or just got done planning. How soon did you cry and say F it? It’s getting expensive. I don’t want to spend the money for just 1 day. I’m super happy going to the court house. But being my parents only child, I feel like I owe them a wedding. I’m tired of everyone having an opinion- location, date wise, how fast we’re doing it. I don’t know much longer I can take with all of this. I just want to be with my person, could careless about anything else.
Anyone here ever get promoted, raises, or bonuses the same year as your maternity leave?
Need advice: I have a young child who’s father has been mostly absent. Sadly, he passed last month and just found out he did have a life insurance policy with my child as the beneficiary. I was told that I can also claim his SS benefits for her as his only beneficiary until age 19. The question is what do I do with this money?? Can it be put into a UTMA account? I quite literally know nothing about these types of payouts and the rules associated with them.
That director or partner who had a lavish looking house overlooking LA (I think) with a swing outside for his mother and beer taps on the patio. This has been on my mind since three days and want to be you when I grow up!

After another failed relationship I think I am going to look into having a child on my own. I’ll be 34 in a few months. Has anyone done this or thinking the same?
When I was a very young child, and I heard the phrase ‘raking in the dough’ I envisioned the cashier at our supermarket actually raking up a pile of bills. But now I’m confused why she wasn’t raking dough balls.
I have a hard time getting along with my future mother in law. She likes to talk about money, judging people/me and I never heard her compliment others. I understand it maybe her culture and background make her that way. But every time after she visited us I am extremely unhappy. She is picky about food I make, always want things changed in my house etc. Herself is not wealthy like she acts so maybe that’s why she comes off that way? She visits us quite often and I don’t know what to do…
Should I have a second child? I met my husband later in life at 37 yo. We had our first when I was 39. I thought I was good with just one as I was never someone who really wanted kids but I know my husband would love to have another and now that I have one I think about her having a sibling. I’ll be 41 in March so we need to start now. I love the ease and flexibility of one child and she’s been such good baby. I’m worried that if we have another I’ll regret it. I’m also about to start a new job.
Why is my status doesn't apply for my kid if he/she travels without me all by himself? 😤😡 this is stupid.
Do you have any recommendations for baby carriers - specifically for bigger babies? We have a baby bjorn, boba wrap, and ergobaby embrace, but it feels like they are getting small / tight for my big baby boy. For reference, he is already over 18lbs at 4mos. Would love something that would be comfy for him but also distributes weight well, as he will only get heavier 🤪 Thank you in advance!
Currently in 6th month of pregnancy and not sure from when to plan my maternity leaves, Any help in planning things Doc says you can work as long as you want, so says my body uptil now. Not sure what to tell my manager.
Any moms here had a vaginal birth and the baby was 9+ pounds? Would love to hear about your experience.
I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.
18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.
Any recommendations on stretch mark/belly cream safe to use during and post pregnancy? I need something super hydrating as my belly is expanding (I’m 22 weeks pregnant)

Y'all my biggest dating challenge so far is that I do not want kids. I keep running into people who are good people but they want kids 🤦🏾♀️ For 🐠, who choose to be child-free, how do you navigate. What kind of advice you can give me?
I’m debating what the right thing to do is (protocol wise and for myself personally) I just received an offer for an internal role I applied for. I am also interviewing externally and today let them know I have an offer in hand. Both external roles I’m interviewing for are significantly higher in comp and title. Would it be bad form to accept the internal role when I know I may be accepting another role and leaving in less than 3 months? (Additional context in comments)
Deloitte fish, asking for a friend on salary expectations for Deloitte GPS senior consultant, manager role? Thanks!
Advice please! How would you organize yourself? I've been studying for the GMAT 3 months so far and on my last practice exam (3 weeks ago) I scored 670. My goal is 750 so I feel that I need at least another month to study. I also have a MBB interview in Feb/March and I need to start practicing casing... ASAP. I've never been the organized type so I feel like I am drowning with work, +1 work, etc. What would you do? Wish there were more hours in the day :(
Seeking advice for moving from industry leadership role (dr of training) into HC consulting. 20+ years in TD (L&D, PC, OCM). Industry roles for last 5 years but spent most of my career in small consulting orgs. CPTD but no degree (long story, about 15 cr shy). Would you suggest addl cert (CCMP, SHRM-C)? Will the lack of degree a no-go or is there a way in while I finish? A Sr director role is being dangled. Would the title bump help with the transition or do I risk missing a hot market?

Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month? My OPT is expiring in June and I was approved for H1B but via consular notification, not change of status. I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?
I got a verbal offer from a company almost 3 months ago now. But due to it being close to the holidays, and having to schedule meetings with hiring managers (to join a team) around their PTO and the holidays, the timeline’s been looking kinda wonky. I got to talk to a manager a bit before Christmas time. I’ve emailed the recruiter who’s supposed to be letting me know of next steps a few times now since the new year, but it feels like she’s ghosting me. What should I do? I’m getting super anxious
When should I start applying to full-time positions if I graduate in December 2022? I currently have an internship this summer in consulting at IBM. And last summer I interned at the Federal Reserve doing compliance and digital transformation. I don't know if I will return to IBM, but I will decide on that based on the experience I have at the internship. However in the mean time I want to explore and see what other opportunities there are. Any advice on when and where to apply for full-time?
Hey all, I’m evaluating our HCM Tech Stack. We don't currently have an HRIS or HCM but we do have an ATS. We are a $500M a year company with the intention to grow significantly over the next 10 years. I'm curious what Technology others are using for ATS, Onboarding, and Talent Management? Is there an all-in-one that is great at everything or piece and part together?
