What would it take for you to move away from excel for building business cases, financial modeling, or cost benefit analysis? What if there was an alternative product to make it faster and easier? If it had the same flexibility would you adopt?
Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
I'm 33 weeks pregnant and exhaustion is hitting me really hard, even worse than in my first tri. I'm sleeping 6-8 hours a night (I'm waking up without an alarm and unable to go back to sleep) but then need a 2 hour nap in the morning (?!?!) to get through the day. Even then, I'm still exhausted and having a hard time focusing when I wake up. Any tips? I've been using melatonin at night, which helps but isn't fixing the whole thing. Ideas appreciated!
I see my boss as a mother figure. Is that bad?
Moms, please tell me this won’t be every fall! My kid started daycare for the first time, and we’re all sick. Toddler is acting out, tyrant threes plus tired from the illness. Baby can’t sleep because she’s dealing with this cold. So of course we aren’t sleeping. Feels like we’re sick constantly like this since school started. 😭
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Question for Deloitte moms. I am 20 week pregnant and haven’t told my project leadership yet . Do you guys think I should wait till compensation is out or can I tell them? Also what is considered too late to tell the leadership?
Is it possible to breastfeed only if you get a baby nurse? I am due in December and contemplating getting a baby nurse, but want to know if baby nurses make more sense if you’re pumping or giving formula.

What do you do when your spouse doesn’t like to travel and that is your hobby? Also, once you have children, how has this interest difference playing in your lives? Anyone?
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?
Has anyone interviewed for and begun a new job while pregnant? If so, what's the etiquette for disclosing?
Hi This is a lengthy post, about a family matter. I am seeking some advice from the community. I am a married mother of a boy who is in Pre-K. I have been married for 8 years now. Contd..
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
Any good books on disciplines and raising a strong confident girl ?My 4 old is such a cry baby and screams a lot. We are both in consulting so tend to pamper her out of guilt. She is still not contd
Just had a call with a group of analysts with first names like Jackson, Lincoln, Dempsey, Hudson, Hunter, and Kennedy. If you're having kids soon, I hope you'll help make this the generation that stops giving their children last names as first names. No child deserves this.

BCG fish I need advice. Currently interviewing for a Consultant level role, they mentioned it was generalist track and it’s located in the south region. If I have experience and an affinity to work within healthcare would I be able to network and get staffed on healthcare engagements regardless of region? Don’t want to get stuck in energy work or another industry if that’s what ends up happening. Boston Consulting Group
Best advice to retire early...mid 30s now...go!

Maxed out my 401k yesterday! Woohoo 🥳
I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?
Feeling blah. Got an offer and turned it down (I wouldn’t have taken), and told this other company that I got an offer, which resulted in the recruiter speeding up my 2nd interview. After the interview, they said that they’d need another interview and to speak to my refs before going forward, and that if I have an offer, they don’t want me to hold me back from taking it. Mind’s kind of in a jumble after this long process. Thoughts from my fellow fish?
What are some good questions to ask the interviewer during/at the end of an interview? (For entry level positions, if that is relevant)
Honest question - do others here wake up at like 3 or 4 AM just randomly since quarantine / WFH has started? I used to sleep soundly through the night but I feel like this happens multiple times a week and I live a very active lifestyle so feel like I should be out until my alarm wakes me
