For those of you who travel for work regularly… how do you do it with kids? I take an average of one 5-day trip a month. I am due early next year and very concerned about being able to travel for work. I don’t have the option of bringing baby along or bringing baby and a family member or nanny.
Having a hard time figuring out where to buy a long term house. We both work in the city, and have a kid. We want decent space (is a yard too much to as for?), good schools, nice town, walking distance to the train. Yes - I’m hoping unicorns do exist. So far something like Bronxville and Scarsdale seem like good options. Open to checking out other towns in any region as long as the commute to Bryant park is close to an hour. Any suggestions?
Starting from blood work to getting pregnant, if everything goes smooth what is a timeline we are looking at?
Since having kid number two 8. months ago I have had so much back pain and not been able to sleep and hate my mattress more than before…. Finally convinced my husband we needed a new proper mattress (not his 7 year old $700 mattress!!!) & today we went and bought a tempurpedic. SOOOO EXCITED. I hope we truly love it and I can actually sleep again.
having a really hard time getting my 3 yo boy (very smart, energetic, somewhat spoiled) to be better to his 11 month old brother (very mellow, sweet and smiley). my toddler will scream in the baby's face, slap him, and today grabbed him so hard by the neck that the baby fell forward onto his face. Ashamed that I was so upset I slapped my toddler after (once, not hard). I try giving the toddler plenty of attention. Baby is now scared of his older brother. Has anyone gone through this?

Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the
When I was a kid one of my biggest worries about adulthood was avoiding quicksand. I'm so relieved that it worked out well. 😂😂😂
My 3 yo just started reading all of a sudden. I just don’t know how he learned. We don’t speak English at home and he has never been to day care. He watches some kid channels from time to time, and we read books with him from time to time. But never speak English as a dialect. I am just amazed how he picked that up… /end humblebrag

Can’t get over depression around one mistake. I don’t want to get too specific but it was financial related and involved missing out on a massive amount of money. I didn’t hurt anyone and i also got happily married and got a puppy this year. I’ve had a rough year at work (largely because of depression) but they stuck by me and now I’m on a great role with a team i love. Also lots of interviews. And yet, i can’t get over this one thing and “what could have been.” hate how ungrateful I’m being.
Anyone here work for Accenture? Curious on the culture and what diversity looks like there.
Amish Milk Bread - These must be the most beautiful loaves of bread I’ve ever baked in my short history of bread making. They are feathery, light, fluffy and wonderfully moist. The crumb is perfect! I think I found the holy grail recipe for white sandwich bread! The Amish are serious about their bread!

Is audit experience mandatory for advisory in big 4? I applied EY FAAS but has been told by recruiter that audit experience is required. So they recommend me to go to audit team for two busy season then apply for FAAS. Can anyone let me know if It’s true? Also if I go to audit WAM. Is it going to limit my opportunities to only FS industry when I apply for advisory like one year later? I want to work on different industry clients in advisory in the future.

PLTR projections - thoughts on this company?
Considering going back to PA. I left PA due to some health issues but I am starting to feel like I left too early. I am a Senior Accountant at a public start up making 80k + equity. I have an offer to go back to a national firm as an S2 at $82 plus sign on bonus. I am really not interested in the work I am doing now and ultimately want to be in management which is hard to see a path to currently - it’s definitely more clear in PA. Am I giving up too much by leaving the equity on the table?
I’m a senior associate at a biglaw firm with a single tier partnership. New partners are required to make a significant capital contribution in their first year. What happens if I leave to go in-house after a couple of years? Do I get this back with interest?
