Is it okay to look for a new job when pregnant? These layoffs don’t look so great at Deloitte.
The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
At what point in your pregnancy did you tell your project leadership that you were pregnant?
I am sincerely asking for advice, not criticism. I have been w/ my boyfriend for 2 years, & I love him dearly. I have a history of being in toxic relationships. My friends call me a chaos addict. I grew up in poverty, and I’m the only one in my family who didn’t battle addiction. I was also a victim of sexual, physical, verbal, & emotional abuse from a step parent I love my bf more than anything, & I do not want to break up, but I keep fantasizing about cheating on him (Cont. in comments)
Morning! QQ — the first time you missed your period because you were pregnant did you still PMS/cramp like your period was about to come on? I’m 4 days late but feel like it could come on at any moment. Plan to take a test today.
Did anyone find themselves feeling disconnected with husband post baby? New mom here. Feel like my husband and I hardly talk of anything other than the baby and her daily needs. In case we ever do, we always end up fighting. Feeling unsure whether our relationship will last. I know the root of the problem is that we don’t get much time for each other. But just wanting to know if this somewhat normal, or should I be prepared for the worst.
How much did your monthly budget increase after having a child? Expecting our first toward the end of the year and we currently spend about $2k per month on non-housing expenses. We thankfully won’t need daycare, but other than that is it just diapers, food, clothes, and toys?
Why do couples want to have children? Are we expected to, will we regret it later down the line, or are we seeking “joy/happiness” or “support” later in life? I’m 32/F and still not sure if I ever want to be a mother. I see the toll motherhood takes on women, not to mention societal and family expectations. But what am I missing here?
Another supervision/duty post...I have noticed that there is a parent who never has her baby in a car seat and their car “stinks” if you catch my drift. I feel like it’s not my place saying anything but it scares me to see a baby strapped into the front seat of a car...even if they live super close
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Has anyone raised a baby/child while still teaching? Can it be done? I’m worried about money for childcare and fitting it all in schedule wise. I don’t want to derail my career, but a baby is a baby!
I was offered a dream job at another agency but I’m on maternity with my current employer. I’ve only been on maternity for two weeks. If I resign now, will I lose the rest of my maternity? I would like to strat my new gig as soon as my maternity is over. Has anyone ever had this experience?
Married 🐠: What are things you do to develop a better relationship with your mother in law? My husband & his fam are quiet, disconnected & don’t really check on each other. I wnt this this to change!
Do you have to spend a certain number of months at PwC before you get their parental leave benefits?
Parental leave policies. The best and the worst in adland? Please respond with your agency policy. Include policy for fathers and adoptive parents too.
Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
Are QOL benefits for a spouse or child in policy for reimbursement? I'm having trouble finding the policy.
Just joined this bowl and scrolled down. My takeaway is that Sapientrazorfish was def that weird kid who read manga in high school (wasn’t even an Asian kid)
CDs saying "always make great creative" is exactly the same as a child saying, "always follow your dreams." Life has nuance.
Does your agency reimburse you for entries to young lions and other junior competitions?

Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔
As a salaried position, woould it be ok if I keep my availability open on recruiting sites like LinkedIn?
Hello everyone, I am currently a HR Generalist for a small aerospace company, located in CA. I have been in a generalist role for a little over 4 years now and before that, I did recruiting/safety for about 3 years. I am now looking into getting my HR Certification, but am stuck in between the PHR-CA or the SHRM-CP. Does anyone have any recommendations they can give me?
I rarely work more than 5-6 hours a day and I'm kind of dreading the upcoming promotion (aside from the money, which is nice). -Associate
Are we just not acknowledging AAPI Month? I haven’t seen any comms. on this and yet our social handles are posting about World Diversity Day? Come on.

Hi! I’m majoring in IT & don’t know what I want to go into once I graduate. I’ve been set on getting an internship but it looks like I’m too late to land one for summer 2022 so I’m going to prepare for summer 2023. I’m anxious because I have no experience being 20 years old. I have 4-5 years of customer service experience but so does every student. What internships are more accepting of beginners? Project management, technical account Manager, Systems engineer maybe? Still learning the field.
Interviewing with a startup called Qventus, any insight on culture, salary bands etc…Thanks in advance!
