Has anyone dealt with what seems to be “pregnancy shaming” from your boss? Ever since I got pregnant my boss has made comments that I “chose to get pregnant.” This has been in response to my request for some sort of paid maternity leave (firm has no policy), the need to take some afternoons off due to being sick, etc.
Tomorrow they are requiring masks again and I was almost in tears when I found out. We have been mask free (recommended) since June and I feel like we are being muzzled again.￼ I am vaccinated, frustrated, and have been off of antidepressants since March. I don’t even want to go into work tomorrow. Anything is better than being virtual and I am trying to look at the bright side, but moving backward still burns. We have parent-teacher conferences coming up and I am hoping that it’s temporary.
I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me. The to do list full of, “send emails to X about Y,” “follow-up re this,” “revise the 100 small things the baby lawyer drafted.” Tasks that might take 15 minutes to an hour individually, but all together it’s a lot. I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.
Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me. Most of our friends have kids who are able to mask up or are vaccinated and it’s getting quite isolating. Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.
How do you handle when one Big 4 firm is trying to move really quickly through the interview process but I am also progressing through the process with an MBB as well that I really want to see through to the end. At the end of the day I don’t want to lose the Big 4 firm if MBB doesn’t come through.
Graduated law school, passed the bar, and started my job last summer. My wife and I got pregnant with our first sooner than we expected, and we're due in June. Any general tips/advice?
I haven’t really been enjoying being an industry accountant. After 4 years in B4 audit and 1.5 in industry I’m really starting to think about going back to maybe a GT, RSM, or BDO type firm
Hello everyone, I am joining Oracle consulting practice as manager in couple of weeks. Just wondering what are the groups in practice. Do they have different groups for delivery and sales. Coming from big 4 so not very used to this kind of structure. Does anyone has any insights?
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
How did everyone make the decision to not have kids? I’ve been on the fence for a long time but I just feel like the world is getting worse, people are meaner, bullying and the internet terrifies me, etc. What if they turn out to be horrible people? Mostly I’m scared of what I can’t control. Help.
My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours. They were supportive early in my career and when we had one child, but our second was born a couple of years ago and all the additional work they put in at home, the lack of family time and lack of couples time is becoming a big strain on our marriage. We are in a high cost of living city so will have to undergo a major lifestyle change if we forego my biglaw..
B4 audit - will the hours get better after being a manager? Or still heavy workload and brutal hours?

Renegotiating my contract and curious about maternity leave policies at other practices/hospitals. Do you get paid leave? If so how much time off & are you getting full pay? We are a group of about 75 employees, 6 docs with 5 PA’s and only unpaid 12 weeks off.
Packing for cross country move with a 5 month old baby and drowsiness from pollen allergy medication looks like a terrible idea now
Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!

Not familiar with Salesforce and have a feasibility question. There is a web app built in Salesforce that allows users to upload documents (PDFs). Is it possible to access these documents in their native form (pdf) from the “backend”. TIA!
I interned for a respectable company over the summer, doing IT stuff but not coding, which I want to do. They offered me a position in September, and at the time i had no other offers/idea of what salary range I should shoot for. Now, if I back out of my acceptance (I am an at will employee), for the job that pays more and more aligned with what I want to do, am I burning a bridge with the first company? I really liked my managers and they liked me which would make this decision difficult.
