Meeting my SO’s mother and grandma for the first time (they live across the country so we’re traveling there just for this). I want to get them a little gift, any ideas? We’re flying there so I haven’t been able to come up with anything that would fit my carryon.
My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working. Has anyone gone through the same? How did it impact you? I told my team and they’re supportive, but I’m at a loss about how this will impact me professionally.
This virus is not a joke people. It killed a healthy actor, 41, who has a 1-year old child.
Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information!

Baby is 4 weeks old, is up every 1.5 hour and Eats every two hours. With feeding , burping, rocking back to sleep and then pumping cleaning bottles etc. I barely get an hour sleep at night..
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
I'm in Notice Period ... In UAN my father name is wrong how much time it will take to correct the name ..it will be done within 1-2 months?
Is their a site similar to the knot’s wedding website where I can create a baby site? I wanted to add maternity photos to share with friends/ family, gender reveal video and baby registry.
How have you guys celebrated career milestones? I told myself when I made manager, I'd finally treat myself and buy my first "big girl" bag. I feel like a big baby, but when I saw comp numbers this year, I cried. I haven't been in the mood to celebrate, but now trying to think of alternatives that might be easier on the wallet.
My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?

I just found out my mother died... six months ago. We had a falling out ten years ago (haven't talked to them since) and my sister who works with her never told me.
I’m a parent pushing 40 and the most joy I get out of my days is sitting up past my bed time at night playing iPhone games as the weed gummies kick in.
If you’re in a serious relationship, is the expectation that you invite your significant other to all family functions? Ie a Mother’s Day lunch?
How much notice is required before taking parental leave at BCG? Is there something required per rule or is it more just best practice to give 60/90 days notice to give folks time to plan/schedule around it?
What's an appropriate out of office message when I mean "I'm on vacation in a foreign country, and the odds of me responding to your email are slim to none"?
Any Deloitte Advisory fish who haven't heard back about their promotion results? I still haven't heard back and apparently neither has my counselor. 😥
Company A came back with an offer $5K higher than Company B after I negotiated. Could I talk to Company B and see if they would match that too? Is that ok to do - this is my first time negotiating for a role after college!
Hello! I’m preparing for an interview, and I’d like to know what are some really good purpose driven brands. Any thoughts? I’d really appreciate the help 😊
Struggling with jealousy of another woman- Im pregnant and the father is off engaged to another pregnant woman he cheated on me with and I’m in therapy but it’s a total blow to my self esteem and heart. How can I get her off my mind? How can I change my mindset? How can I reframe this so I’m the victor and not the loser?
So, 100% of the times I’ve got further in the interview process and I’ve got an interview with the ECDs or CCOs, I got the job. Always. Except for the 2 last ones. And the only difference was...cont
What are the best exit opps in terms of total comp in the Chicago area? Most great offers I see on here are for the SF/NYC areas. For reference I have a few years experience at ACN, a tech master’s degree, and will be joining a T2 strategy consulting firm (think S&, ATK, EYP), but don’t plan on staying in consulting long term. I’m honestly open to anything, but do have an interest in VC and FinTech. TIA!
How do you spread your vacation days out over the course of the year? (Not interested in the gunners or lackies who don’t take any)
Does higher vault ranking (v10-30 compared to v80-100) open more doors for corporate in-house opportunities for a senior associate? If chambers practice area rankings and expected billable hours are similar and they offer the same DPW pay scale, does it matter less? Is it better to stay at/lateral to a firm where you might be able last longer to learn the necessary skills? Any personal anecdote or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
ACN folk, the my voluntary benefits enrollment ID is what? I've never made one for it but it keeps asking me to enter a 7-character ID

What consulting books are good to read? Topics. How to climb the corporate ladder as fast as possible. Any other good consultant information.
I’m at the end of my rope. My AMD went on maternity leave a month ago and at this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to get a temp replacement. I’m expected to work up and put together plans for 2022 almost all on my own while taking time to train new AMPs and MPs. My director expects me to delegate to them when they have little to no background. I know I should probably start looking elsewhere but I feel like with the Great Resignation, it’s going to be the same anywhere else.
How do you respond when companies you interview with ask what your current salary range is?
