Anyone here work at Wayfair? What do you think of the child trafficking blow up happening right now? Search #wayfair hashtag on Twitter if you haven't heard. At this point, we only have Wayfair saying this is ridiculous, but obviously this can't be a coincidence...

I lost my father a few months ago and I’m not coping well. Has anyone used an employee assistance program for this? Should I just seek a counselor privately?

Happy Father’s Day out there. You Padres are killing it with your selfless dedication with your sacrifices to your families. Challenge yourselves to spend time more time with your kids. That’s the biggest regret I hear....to all the fathers that screwed it up get your $h!t together and be the father you always wanted. Cheers!!!

Does anyone have any tricks to make themselves look older? When I'm clean shaven I'm a baby face 👶🏼
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
Ladies how do you keep your sex life from not dying when you have a newborn? We had sex maybe twice the entire course of my pregnancy (at the beginning, I bled a little after sex so the doctor asked us to cool ourselves a bit lol) and with our baby here we hardly have the time or mood to do it. We have our baby in our room (and will probably have him until he’s a year old) and I don’t feel like doing it when the baby’s beside us. Looking to hear what you ladies have done to keep it alive!!!

Anyone ever negotiate MBA internship offers (non-consulting)? Curious if big tech firms would be open to this.
Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?
What is your opinion on a MS social studies teacher having a confederate flag hanging in their classroom?
Is it really worth it to get your Masters degree! Or is the extra increase in salary just going to go to student loans?

How do I have the conversation with a Partner about writing a letter of rec for a PhD program? Will I put myself a risk of being laid off if I express interest in continuing my education?
Fuck delta, don't tell me I have to check my bag when there is clearly still tons of overhead room. If only there was way to communicate in real time with someone on the plane...
I firmly believe it should be a requirement for all administrators (from APs/principals to superintendent) go back into the classroom for 1 year after every 5 years in their current admin job.
NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy? (FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.

What do you recommend investing your money in if you don’t think you’ll live very long in retirement? Most my family hasn’t made it past 70 due to cancer etc., so I’m concerned the money I’m putting in 401k will never be able to be used by me… thank you.
Got a verbal offer from a big 4 a month ago, discussed salary expectations 3 weeks ago, still no offer letter. Firm has to let me know it should be coming soon. Are these normal timelines?

Hi! Do any of you incorporate Montessori concepts/strategies in your public ed classroom? Care to share? Admin is open to it as long as it's standards-aligned.
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
