Can you provide advice to succeed/survive on the corporate client side? Moved away from agencies to corporate and it is SOUL SUCKING. Between the lack of flexibility (both personally and day to day), sterile environment, and millions of meetings a day I am going insane. The pay and benefits are dramatically better in this corporate role, but I won’t lie I am missing the freedom of agencies so much right now.
I'm not a mom yet (don't kick me out of the group!) but have been going through fertility and IVF treatments for more than 6 months. I'm constantly having bloodwork, appointments and calls with the doc during working hours. Any advice on what I can and should tell my team about my health? They can tell I'm in and out of the doctor's office and I suspect they think I'm pregnant. Maybe it's being chock-full of hormone pills, but I'm sensitive about everyone thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.
I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day. I’m also new to billing and often find myself working all day and billing just 4 hours. Whenever I bring this up to the partner, he says it’s good we’re not over billing our client. We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
Just got to new manager training. If I ever get staffed on an Orlando project I'm shooting myself. So many children on the plane.
I have a toddler and baby. Toddler was always home due to pandemic and started preschool. He brings sickness home every week and we are all sick miserable. Thanksgiving was worst as baby ended up hospitalized and I have zero family support. I am so traumatized and couldn’t bring myself to send older to preschool again with covid fear of my kids. Can some experienced mamas share your wisdom on how you managed sickness , covid fear and do right by the kids

For those of you who had covid - what was the experience? How long did you take off? Was your team/client understanding? Were you rolled off your project? How did your firm support you?
Help. Beginning of a nasty divorce. Two children 3 and under. Father moved long distance so I’m basically single mom but he’s instigating super nasty custody battle. I haven’t had a decent nights sleep in probably a year and a half (since before I got pregnant the second time). I’m so wrung out. I’m working full time - trying to adjust my schedule but harder to get that through than it looks. I have a small village which I’m using to the max. Going to therapy twice a week. Continued in comments…

One time my coworker and I on a trip thought we were walking into a new client meeting (good relationship, not cold) to get briefed. They told us Oh, we thought you were presenting. 2 hours to meeting. Open the laptop in the car as he drives down highway. Write a pitch presentation in Word. 3 half page ideas. It’s for their Olympics sponsorship activation and they’re a billion dollar company. Throw it up on the screen, dance around and bring the ideas to life. Won the business! Lol

Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.
