But these days I see myself as a mother of two who is barely surviving at life when she is used to “killing it” at work. Kids are not learning anything new, house is a mess, unlimited personal projects on hold, personal grooming is not even on the agenda and to make it all worse, have a personal goal of weight loss but am actively working against it.
How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping.

Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown.

Hi Ladies - Trying to decide when to officially go on leave. I was thinking two weeks before I’m due but everyone keeps telling me to work up until the due date to have more time at the end with the baby. I’m honestly just tired of working and barely get any sleep at this point. Wouldn’t mind having some me time (I have 5 months leave) but also realize the baby could come early. Let me know your thoughts!
I need advice about my extremely aggressive 2 year old. We just had another baby. He is taking his agression out on his cousin who is also two. It’s gotten to point we can’t see my fam anymore because

Considering leaving my agency after just a couple months in pharma - feeling underutilized and stuck. My question: do I leave this stint off my resume entirely? List the parent agency instead of the wellness arm? Pass it off as freelance? Not trying to be dishonest I just know this experience probably isn’t relevant when going out for non-pharma jobs.

Hi everyone, I saw a job listing for Zoox (strategy role) and was interested in applying.

Anyone work at UHY? What's the culture like? How are the hours in busy season /non busy season? Do you work from home at all? I know they are back in the office.

All jokes aside, as consultants should we be worried about layoffs now that trump is going to be elected?
