How did you minds stay focused during your last trimester? I’m due in January and I am on a project until thanksgiving! I am not interested in work at all, I just want to stop working & mentally prepared for this baby. I’ve been on engagements non-stop my whole pregnancy - sorry venting a little 😩
How is it that you can fly with a baby in your lap with no seatbelt—yet laptop in the seat back pocket is not allowed. I promise you getting hit with a projectile baby is gonna hurt!!
Hey there Female Bosses! I have a sensitive question and I'd love your opinion... I was tracking for a promotion and pay rise, by all company measures I earned it! The reviews ran into my maternity leave, which resulted in the company telling me nothing will happen while I'm on leave (literal discrimination). Do you have a suggestion on how I make sure I get what I earned over the past number of years? Thanks for your advice
Can anyone provide insight to working at Holland and Hart? Also, when do parental leave benefits kick in? Is there a waiting period? Do they negotiate lateral bonuses for losing out on present firm end of year bonus? TIA.
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
Bf’s sister is pregnant. Obviously happy for him, but can’t help feel sad that their family will probably not be happy when my time comes. They’re bigots and they hate me. Thinking of breaking up but I’m torn
I wake up at 4:30 AM to have some me time. Even on weekends! Life after a kid has changed so much!! When will things go back to normal 🧐
Need advice from more experienced fishes. How much should I increase my FSA contribution if I plan to (try to) get pregnant next year?
Baby outgrew the nuna pipa in his 6th month… what car seat would you all recommend? Kinda confused and haven’t done enough research around this because I thought this day wasn’t coming around for atleast another year! Apparently not! Any recommendations on what we could go for?
Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this? I know lesbians usually go to sperm bank but we wanted to know “baby daddy” and have him involved as a godparent and when kids ask questions introduce him as a father. Personal life stories and dos and donts welcome. All my friends are straight or gay men so I have this resource and general internet.
Hypothetical here: you are a parent and your child got into two schools for undergrad. The first school is a US top 30 University out-of-state, but you have to pay full sticker price ($60k+ per year). The second school is a good in-state university and 20% the cost. If your child goes in-state, you agree to invest the residual ($50k per year) in an S&P 500 fund that releases upon graduation. What is the best outcome for your child?
When and how do you tell your group you are pregnant? Especially considering if you are in a small niche group and/or considering not returning after birth
Hello! Trying to get ready for baby girl 2 in January. Ours will be 5 years apart and I feel a little a little rusty. Any products that we must have for this time around?
Hi! Anyone works in Accenture/Globant/Infosys/Wipro/Everis/IBM/Deloitte or other IT services companies and can tell me how long are the maternity and paternity leaves? And any other benefits regarding these leaves. Thanks!
I'm in my last trimester with my first child! Was wondering if the mommas of the group share any tips on navigating motherhood, and juggling career and family? What were some of the highlights and challenges?
6am flight, mother trying to breast feeding her screaming child in the seat next to me before take off. Attendant approaches me, "sir, we have a seat open for you in 1D." 💸💎🍾🍻🍸😁👏🙌🏻👏🙌🏻👏💥
My wife and I are due with a baby girl in few weeks. Still not aligned on the last name though. In our community it's the first name of the father which typically becomes the last name of the child. Considering she has put in most of the effort and carried the child for 9 months I strongly feel the last name of the child should be her first name though. I would like my name as the middle one. Don't see why this system continues to be patriarchal.
For those of you with immediate family members who are at high risk, how are you doing? I find myself being very anxious and stressed about my father getting sick.
In a week, I have a black tie wedding coming up at a beautiful indoor/outdoor city venue. I’m stumped about a dress because I’m also 3 weeks postpartum from my first child. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy and have already lost 35 since the birth. (It’s amazing how much of it was just baby + bloat!) I am looking for a dress that will hide the mommy tummy (some loose skin that’s still tightening). I’m also nursing and my boobs are HUGE rn. Any recs on how to try to dress this new body?? 🥲
I was having IT issues when my firm migrated to Microsoft teams. I was getting help and they took control to do their trouble shooting. After fixing the issue, he suddenly video called himself to test it all works. I was laying in bed naked when the cam turned on 💀
Hi! Anyone works in Accenture/Globant/Infosys/Wipro/Everis or other IT services companies and can tell me how long are the maternity and paternity leaves? And any other benefits regarding these leaves. Thanks
Can I join a Zoom depo midstream?
For those roles in non strategy such as risk or implementation, does any of the mbb recruit out of non targets? I'm a master's student in business analytics in a non target in NYC, and I really am interested in an implementation/ risk consulting at MBB. ( Different from big 4 risk)
Hi! I’m looking for non-fiction book recommendations. Memoirs, self-help, business... anything really 🤗 TIA!
Has anybody changed locations from SF or NY to a Lower COL city like Chicago during COVID (specifically in tech) and had their salary adjusted down? If so, how much was the decrease?
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
Advice on how to prepare to start a new job on Monday? I’m starting a new job after being fired from my last one, so I’m kind of nervous
Felling a little conflicted: I have an interview to exit consulting into industry. They are offering a 50% increase in salary, no travel. On the other hand, I love my current team and client but...
Any recs for office chair within $100 range? Asking for a baby sister who’s a broke college student. Doesnt have to b fancy/super fancy but something that r of decent quality… i know its a stretch to ask for this budget🤣
I got a phone call from a firm I turned down 2 years ago, just wondering if I would be interested again. Only turned them down due to distance from home, but they are fully remote now, would need to come in every once in a while for client things. Crazy to even consider it? Move from BDO to a regional firm. Owner and staff was great, he said, name your price. Need some insight, thanks!
Thoughts on MorganFranklin consulting? -pay -culture, etc I heard pay is same as big 4 with an extra profit share bonus. Culture is more self starter, less rank and file like big 4.
If you were selecting a school solely based on culture/student experience, where would you go?
I currently work for a mid market firm (regionally known, ranked between top 30 and 50). I am doing well and very well liked here. It’s a great fit culturally and I rarely work more than 45 hours a week doing FDD and my total comp is 115K this year. The last transaction I worked on closed for $380M so I do get to see deals of larger sizes. I’ve only been here about a year. I got an opportunity to leave to an investment banking role. Should I take it?
Brought in at clients request despite not having experience in work stream, found out leadership wanted more senior consultant and was trying to dissuade client. I’m uneasy, like leadership doesn’t +
