Is being a realtor a maternity friendly job? I’ve been in residential sales for a year and I’m thinking of starting a family now. How did you manage to run your business and start a family at the same time? How long was your mat-leave for? Is being part of a team better than solo at this stage? Any advice would be appreciated ladies

Mamas who took a maternity leave…How did you do it? Did you wait until you went into labor or did you schedule a hard date to start your leave? What did you do before you left to prepare your team for your leave? Trying to finish out the last few weeks before my leave starts and I’m a planner and a worrier (if you couldn’t tell 😂)

I am not local to the DC area and am starting to feel like it might set back my career considering Deloitte’s hold there. I’ve been at the firm for two years and doing well, but I get the feeling I’m missing out on important career opportunities. I am expecting my first child in March…maybe my priorities will change and it won’t matter as much? I could move my family to the area, but my partner would not be happy and the housing market is off-putting. Will this matter less to me soon?

Second pregnancy. With my first, I used Medela Sonata. Curious to see how Spectra S1, Buddha Baby, and Medela Freestyle Flex (newest one) compare in terms of efficiency, pumping time, draining out, etc. TIA!
In my last trimester with the first baby and I’m extremely unmotivated at work… worrying about actual birth, worry about having a baby, worrying about loosing job with a baby and debt (just general anxiety at this point). My sleep has been reduced to 3-5 hours max a day since beginning of 2nd trimester (that’s with all the bathroom breaks every hour at night AND counting nap minutes throughout the day). I can’t think clearly and my mood is literally a rollercoaster ride. It’ll get better right?
What are you favorite brands for maternity clothes which you can use for work? Thank you!!
Hi mommies - has anyone had a child born with a heart murmur, specifically ASD. My baby was born with an ASD, and I’m worried and have a lot of anxiety! The doctor asked us to watch for another 5 years to see if it’ll close on its own. But wanted to check here to see if anybody else has gone through it and hear real life stories!
I've an offer of Fractal Analytics, Bangalore; L&T Tech , Hyderabad; Happiest Minds, WFH; Exponential AI, Hyderabad. All the offers are of same CTC and base. My current location is Hyderabad and I've a working wife (permanent WFH) and a year old kid.
Please suggest which one should I join. Thanks.
Has anyone cut your parents out of your life (completely cut out: no phone call, no Family meeting, like strangers)? How long? regret or not? I moved out and didn't want to look back, but I don't feel better. I am still crying and angry so much...why did they give me a life with child trauma? Even now, I'm past 30 and taking meds but still in pain
Mummas- where and what to buy daycare winter wear for Chicago winters? My baby is 13 months old.
Thanks so much in advance.
[Maternity leave / pregnancy question] Have any fish timed new jobs with when they’re planning to have a baby? Or has anyone become pregnant quickly after joining a new company?
Context: I want to leave my firm but most new companies have a 1 year requirement in order to get maternity leave. If I get pregnant before/during finding a new job, worried I’ll be SOL. I don’t want to wait due to fears I won’t be able to conceive.
TW: weight, weight loss
curious how much weight people have lost in the first trimester due to nausea, etc? im toward the end of my first trimester and I haven’t experienced any vomiting but the lack of appetite and aversions have caused me to lose about 10 lbs since my last ultrasound :/ I’d normally be celebrating this as I don’t mind the numbers I’m seeing but I keep worrying about whether baby is getting enough nutrients 😭
Not yet a dad but hopefully some day soon. Curious about how you and your spouse got pregnant. Was it an intense, thoroughly tracked process (aka we HAVE to have time together TODAY) or a more (cont.)

Hi! Happy Friday! So I would like to ask for some pointers…I am looking for a side gig to keep my skills sharp and also make extra money, I am very good at data clean up in Salesforce using ETL tools. Anyway, if you guys can point me on where I can find some consulting or side gigs cleaning up or structuring data, I did that for 3 years implementing Salesforce and pivoted to demo’ing so don’t get to do a lot of that anymore 😊 thank you ahead of time!

Hi everyone, I need help evaluate an offer for senior data scientist at a mid size corporate in SF (mainly focus on statistical modeling and data analysis, no MLE related tasks):
$175K base + 300K RSU, no bonus, fully remote. I’m currently working at a unicorn with $115K base + stock options (best case scenario if stock price increase 11x I’d get around $300K out of it before tax) + 15% annual bonus, in office 2-3 times a week.
Does anyone know the comp range for Grade 9 at GitLab? The position is a Sr. Manager, Professional Services. Glassdoor and levels.fyi haven’t been helpful.
Just heard this on a podcast and it's so true "The most damaging employees are not the ones that quit and leave, it's the ones that quit and stay."
Received an offer from a top FAANG for a 250% increase in TC. However, I was initially interviewing for a position that was remote and yet the final offer does not provide that option, non-negotiable. I have a wife and 2-year-old child and another one due in 7 months, and currently live near both sets of grandparents.
Is working at a top FAANG really worth that kind of cost? I'm leaning heavily 'no' but it's not making it easy to sleep at night knowing I'm sitting on this kind of offer!
Does anyone have any insight into the below inside internal IT of Deloitte (US):
1. Org structure and levels
2. How are they different from consulting? For example, how does the scope of a manager/SM differ?
3. What does a manager/SM level entail in internal IT? (Meaning in life).
4. Are there PPDs? Is it different/similar at that level?
5. Career progression/timeline compared to consulting.
I see a lot of people from FAANG here. Were you guys the smartest people in university or had the best internships? I just feel I can never reach the bar which has been set.
I want to leave my company, I'm not enjoying working under my manager. My mental health is in danger due to panic attacks. I would like to work somewhere else but I know that I should be strong in interviewing(leetcode etc) in order to continue pursuing software development. I'm studying on my own, and with a friend on Fridays. With all the studying im doing there are no signs of improvements. I feel like this is a sign to give up on trying to find roles in software development. Thoughts?

For senior roles like that I would imagine networking is really your best bet. You should be reaching out to professionals in the areas you’re interested in and making connections. Maybe if you stayed in touch with former coworkers who already moved on you should reconnect with them and see how their new companies are. It’s important to have a strong resume but at that level of seniority connections are important too
When I left a job after 15 years I had a hard time getting interviews. I switched to a Project oriented resume where I listed everything I'd worked on first and it seemed help.
However, since you are looking at such a senior leadership roll, I would think your best course of action is to mine your contacts. If you know other senior people at other companies they can bypass the usual HR screening.
Are you using any of the skills matching software tools like Skillsyncer?
