How to keep mother and MIL apart? Wedding in 7 weeks, moms hate each other. Both sets of parents live close by. Dreams of having them all get along in the future have been reduced to dust. Now just trying to make it through the wedding and keep them apart for the rest of my life. And pray they let me and my husband build our own lives.
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
First time dad of an 18 months old baby. She won't be going back to the daycare and will have a full time nanny. What are some way to ensure that she is still getting exposed to other and not socially awkward? I am thinking to sign her up for some activities when things slow down with Covid but I'm not sure If that's enough.
Does anyone have any recommendations for sites or services I can use to improve my corporate drafting skills? I was given negative feedback about my skills shortly before I went on maternity leave and I'd really like to use (part of) this time to learn. I am a senior mid level. Thanks.
Mothers who have left their husbands in the first year of their first child’s life - talk to me about why you did it, whether there was a “straw that broke the camel’s back” and how you feel about everything now in retrospect. I really need some help thinking through this. I haven’t talked to anyone about it, and I don’t want to be rash.
What is in the baby formula down here in Charlotte? I've never seen such a high ratio of hot women to non-hot. They grow em like crops. Not even nyc can compete
I just found out I'm pregnant!!! So excited 🎊🎊called the doctors office and they said I'm too early on and can see the doctor only after two months. Is this how it works? Also I was told to start taking otc prenatals, any recommendations?
30 F and found out I’m pregnant last night. I missed my last two periods and chalked it up to quarantine/stress. The guy is not in the picture at all and I’ve been on the biggest roller coaster of my life the past 24 hours. Seeking genuine advice, experiences, and truths about how this will likely go on my own. Much appreciated ❤️
I am 35 years old, and I threw my desktop keyboard at my monitor and broke both. I did this because I was playing a videogame and I didnt finish the level I needed to in the correct amount of time. I did it because I got mad other people can finish the level so easily but I cant seem to. I never feel good enough, and I think it stems from my father for 18 years telling me I am never good enough. Now I never know if I see myself as unworthy because its true or im conditioned to believe it.
Second time moms: just found out I’m pregnant with my second, 7 months before we planned to start trying 😳. My first is ~26 lbs - thoughts on lifting her? And when did you start showing? Any “second time” tips greatly appreciated!
Anyone heard of “honour killing” stories outside of movies from people you know IRL? This concept just seems so unreal to me. How does a parent kill their kid? Or do they not view them as their kid? Is there a history of dehumanisation happening before it gets to this point?
Any restrictions taking parental leave in the first year of employment at BCG/Bain? Couldn't find anything published online about it and not ready to disclose (too early in pregnancy)
Has anyone taught an admin’s child? I’m going to be teaching my new AP’s daughter this year and I’m so nervous!
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship and how I’m not really that happy. Boyfriend is always upset at me for various reasons and treats me like I’m a burden (like I don’t know how to do anything and he has to parent me). He doesn’t seem interested in marrying me, but we’ve been together a long time. I’m thinking if the best time to go our separate ways is when the lease comes up, but I wanted to hear other ladies opinions.
Does Microsoft let you use parental leave in the 1st year? I'll be 8months in if I accept the offer

For those of you in cities like NYC and SF, how do you view colleagues that get pregnant a few years after b-school/around age ~30-31, ie several years before your “biological clock” necessitates it?
Resigning on parental leave: how much notice should I give? I know two weeks is standard but I truly don’t have any work to transition while on parental leave. Any risk to them dropping me off payroll immediately? For context, it is a big4 strategy practice.
I’m going back to work after maternity leave soon. Any tips on how to feel like you’re put together even though you may be running on very little sleep?
Baby in first -_-

CORPORATE BANKERS: What was your base salary and bonus (%) last year? What was your role? Was your unit housed within Investment Banking? Interested in comp progression and bonus levels in Canada and USA
Anyone else feel like they are their best selves when prepping for upcoming interviews? I'm 100% hunkering down, studying like mad, no alcohol/drugs + 8 hours of sleep + working out, fully isolating (order in vs grocery shop to minimize chance of COVID), learning an incredible amount to fill in any potential knowedge gaps. Like that scene in Rocky 🤣 That visible path to more $$$ is the greatest motivator...
INSTAGRAM? Is anyone using it for business through Hearsay? Trying to get our BD to allow. Any info would help!
Never thought I’d miss networking events but here we are.. Now that things are opening up, are there any networking events in the NYC area that anyone would recommend? FWIW, I’m a litigation attorney and would love to connect with other professionals of color in any industry. Thanks in advance!
Why is there an overlap / inverse correlation between salary and designation? For example there are senior consultants making a lot more than managers, and managers making a lot more than SM.

Can you still negotiate an offer even if you said ok to their salary range during the initial HR/recruiter call? Let’s say they said the salary will be around 85k and you said okay to that initially - can you still negotiate that to 90k when you get an offer?

I am a decent candidate, my last 5 interviews were EY, McK, EY, McK and GS (last round, 1st round, last round, 2nd round, 1st round). I have 10 months of experience and graduated with majors in cs and bus. I interned once at a big 4 acc firm and once as a software engineer. One caveat: I am an F1 student on OPT.
Does pre-MBA T2 consulting experience help or hurt for M7 summer internship interviews at MBB? Have heard prior consulting is helpful but have also heard that MBB doesnt like “bad habits” formed at other consulting firms.
Best office chair for under 150
I know it's bad form to ever list a client name on my resume, what about mentioning the name in an interview? It doesn't flow very well saying "top 5 global pharmaceutical company" vs. Pfizer
