A bit perplexed on how to feel after event that took place last night. We’re out to dinner for my boyfriend‘s dad‘s birthday and just after we order dinner, his parents hand each of the siblings an envelope. After a few minutes it became clear each envelope had 30k, plus several hundred in random gift cards. I grew up pretty well off but this is not something my parents would ever do. Am I weird to be thrown off by this or is getting help from parents as an adult not as uncommon as I thought?
Any suggestions on looking for a job while 3 months pregnant? Need advice bc a lot of companies need 1 year time tenure before maternity leave benefit
I am an African American woman who recently started dating a white man for the first time in my life. I had no intentions of dating him but my friends urged me to being that I was in my mid 30s and single with no real options in sight. I gave him a chance and although it started off a bit awkward he grew on me over time. My mentor who is an older black male found out about this and has now started to distance himself from me because of it. I am very distressed hes like a father to me.
Toronto folks - do your firms have a program for women returning from Maternity leave? My wife has 12 years of experience in Banking projects is a CSM and is having trouble finding any leads.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that you are all doing a great job with this ridiculous, unprecedented juggling act of trying to be a parent, teacher, lawyer and human. Hang in there!￼
I am not looking for a fight, but I was talking about this and thought it would be a good place to poll the masses. Opinions on CRT?
Are you still afraid of catching COVID?
What childhood trauma defined your personality/adult goals? I’ll start: always being the poorest in the room turned me into the 💵 and salary obsessed adult that I am today!
Do you get annoyed by people who say & think they are poor but aren’t? My husband’s dad always complains about money & being poor yet was making over 6 figures, retired, had a stay at home wife, multiple kids, and splurges on new cars or vacations. This makes my hubs think they grew up poor when they didn’t. In turn my family actually was poor and we were immigrants so it’s hard to hear being poor off over 6 figures when my parents never made close to that.
My wife is giving birth in a few months to our first child. Should I take the full 16 weeks? Four months seems like an extremely long time. What about utilization and bonus? Getting replaced in projects and initiatives?
My house got egged and tped over the weekend. I took it upon myself to reach out to the parents and let them know I've already called the cops but wanted to reach out to you first before the cop shows up on your door. 1 set of parents immediately shifted blame to me and bashed me as a teacher and told me they think I have it out for their son and didn't address the situation at hand. How can I move forward with this situation?
I strongly believe that people who don’t take maternity or paternity leave should get a 2-3 month paid sabbatical every 5 years.
So.. there is ONE female Partner within my vertical that has kids. Any Principals or Partners with young kids? How do you manage to excel at work and still be present at home for your kids? But more than that did you have to over compensate at work to “prove” yourself after kids?? I need to know the secret sauce to succeeding in this@job while keeping my sanity and some@sort of balance! (SO also in a demanding job but has flexible hours)
Moms with multiple kids and both parents working outside of home full time - how do you manage the normal stuff in the home that keeeps it going? Grocery, cooking, laundry, cleaning, regular upkeep? Can’t find the time to do a lot but also can’t afford to outsource it all especially with childcare costs. Tips please!
I never thought being a mom would be this difficult. I am working full time, have an infant who wakes up every 3-4h and doesn't fall back asleep unless held in arms, am breastfeeding for medical reasons, and feel resentful and beyond tired all the time. I hate the fact that my body is so different to how it was before, that I don't have a sense of self any more, that I can't disconnect and take a break (and this is likely to not change for years to come). Is this normal or unfit to be a mom?
I got married to a white American girl we have a kid now. My family is visiting from India and she is not ok with them staying for prolonged periods 3 weeks at a time in this case....contd
Does anyone here works at Plante Moran? If yes, how is their paternity leave policy and what their other benefits like?
Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?

Where is a new build???
That awkward moment when Deloitte is number 2 to PwC
What would it take for you to make the jump to industry? A certain number, more work-life balance or a big title?
What's more common for you? 1. using network to get on a project you really like. 2. HR staffs you on something without any prior communication.
Everybody I know wants to get out of this project. It's only this project or you guys too???
Client said, "...and Mike come on top of me on this" on a call. I think he meant "build on what I'm saying". Not quite the same. Pretty hard not to laugh when other clients snort and look at me.
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
I sometimes envy shorter people for having a lot more room to work with their laptop mid flight.
Know your Myers-Briggs type? My guess is that there are quite a few of us here that are ENTJ.
When your male colleague thinks you are JV enough to be tricked into doing work for him over the holiday when he compliments your powerpoint design skills #lol #skillsetproblems #Imbusybyotch
