Do maternity support belts actually work? And if yes, what’s a good one to buy? Entering my 6-th month this week and already having back pain and feeling like I need extra support
Props to American citizens making it clear that intentional child abuse is not an appropriate deterrent for illegal immigration. Huah! Go America 🇺🇸. Make Trump 🏳️ again!
Any moms who really badly wanted a girl but ended up with a boy(s)? How do you feel now? Do you still want a girl? Would you try again? Does it matter really, or was it just in your head? Had a difficult relationship with my mom growing up, so always wanted that closeness with my future daughter. FTM having a boy and a little disappointed, but feeling guilty for that too. Difficult pregnancy so likely won't have another. But I want a girl. 🤷🏻♀️ Please no woke left gender drama responses. Thanks.
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
If anyone is in the ATL area and looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested. Happy to chill all day but full of energy outdoors. 🐾 https://petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1159058?awo=Atlanta+Lab+Rescue&widget=false
Travel with a baby and forgot my laptop at tsa checkpoint. Anyone managed to recover their stuff before?
Looking for book suggestions. Want to get my father a few books. I know he really enjoyed the Century Trilogy and Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett - which are both historical fiction. I would be grateful if anyone has ideas for similar books.
I on L1 visa which is expiring on Dec 1. My wife is on L2 and currently pregnant and due on Dec 19. My company has filed for an extension in August for me and thinks that there will be no decision until early next year. If my visa extension gets denied before December 1, does it mean that we cannot deliver our child in US? What is the norms for losing health coverage - do I lose it immediately?
I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
Anyone with later miscarriage experience willing to chat? Just lost our baby at 15 weeks, from our only embryo after a brutal IVF journey. Struggling to see any path forward right now.
Alright so there’s a thing called reclaim my status. If you had a reason why you lost status in the last year or two like COVID, baby, new job, etc. You need to submit some basic documentation and they give you that status for 3 months with a DRASTICALLY lower threshold to make the status permanent and even higher tiers are much easier to obtain during those 3 months. Google “reclaim my status Delta”
What’s the best time to switch jobs after maternity leave? Is there any policy at Blackstone on how long we need to stay after maternity leave?
How do you overcome the anxiety when a parent messages you angrily? I sent out letters to parents of kids who had a D or an F and offered some suggestions and this parent took it as me telling her what to do and insulting her.
My wife and I just had our first child and as she was waiting to be vaccinated (we went for her first shot on the way home from the hospital), we told both sets of parents to wait 3 weeks before flying to come see us. Understand that’s upsetting but her parents couldn’t handle it to the point that they stopped talking to her for three weeks half way through the pregnancy and then after saying they understood, flew to her sisters place (2 hrs from us) without telling us then called after..cont’d
Expecting our first in about 6-8 weeks. Both my wife and I work at places with strong parental leave policies. We are considering staggering our leaves (I’d take a couple weeks right when the baby is born, then go back to work until her leave runs out, then go out) to save $$ on child care. Would also have a bit of family help during the first 4-6 weeks as well. Any experienced dads think this is a bad idea?
Omg lady won't give up her seat so this non white family can sit together who has a baby. "If these people who can't speak English can't afford to sit next to each other, why do I have to move" ewww
We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?
My grandma is nearing the end of her life, so I just booked a last minute flight home with cash. I am thinking of booking a returning flight in the next few days with points with United. I may have to cancel/reschedule...does anyone know if they refund points if <1 week out? I can’t find the answer online.
Can anyone share experienced SM salary at BDO, medium COL city. Any idea what MD's start at?
I have an offer for a finance role from one of the faang companies out of Seattle. Total comp is little over $400k. Is this a respectable offer? I’m currently based out of a tier-3 city and working for one of the big4s.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Currently in India with L1 and Green card being processed, would I need an NIE to travel back to the states?
Holy crap the Precheck & Clear lIke @ IAD is long this morning. The employee said it’s a normal Monday occurrence
Hello, what is an average salary for a Senior Product Manager at AWS in the northeast? Thanks!
Having a tough time understanding non-tech leveling for jobs at Facebook. What level/pay band should someone align to with 8 years of b4 strategy experience in a non-tech program manager role? Base+bonus+RSU. Don’t know if location matters anymore but position is aligned to NYC.
How seriously is McK’s ‘outside activities’ policy enforced? It sounds like P2P advisory like MBA / College admissions consulting would not be allowed… is that correct?
Starting to feel a lot better about my crappy ass Guidehouse bonus/raise after seeing the Deloitte fallout today 🤣
Hi guys, Anyone here currently working as Associate Consultant/ Consultant (Salesforce) at Infosys? I have recently cleared the interviews just want some insight on the type of work I would get. Feel free to DM me TIA :)
Furloughed now and thinking about my job situation. Female physicians: need advice on advocating for myself when I was passed up for what I thought was deserved promotion for a male colleague.
Does consultant level at Deloitte get variable comp? I joined after the Bonuses were given out and am curious about next year.
What’s the longest commute you could tolerate? I’ve never had a commute unless you count an internship 7 years ago for two months. I live close to city and I’m looking for new job but to really jump in salary and opportunities I have to look in the city.
3 rounds of interviews over the course of the past two weeks. The third and final one is tomorrow but nervous that if I don’t get this position now I look like a slacker at my current firm because I’ve had to take off/leave early recently for all these interviews… does it really look bad for am I being paranoid
