I am not a mom yet and plan to have kids in maybe 2 years. Did you plan it out with where you would work before you had kids or what advice do you have to prepare for motherhood in this industry? Thx!

Also any FSA or HSA options they offer - max them out


You cannot engineer this. Just live. And save some cash that will help either way. Trying to time it all perfectly is a recipe for heartbreak and stress.


Enroll in short term disability if your agency has it


Also, don’t overthink. In Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In she talks about women without children worrying about it. First you’ve got to fall pregnant and her advice is don’t take yourself preemptively off the career track.


I stayed at my company bc I wanted to have my maternity leave paid for. While they have been great about my transition back, I’m having a really hard time finding a new gig. I would say don’t worry about the money or the leave. Worry about having a good job. Now I look back and say, I traded career growth for like 15k. I could have gotten a new job that paid 15k+ more and made that sum up.


Did not plan. Trying to plan for #2.

Hey guys,

I have a second round (out of 3) with Bain coming up. Overall, scored quite high and was just told to be more answer driven, which I am working on.

Did a couple of cases but really feel burnt, no real added values in the ones I do now.

Any insights or advice on what to prepare for round 2? What are my chances if the first round went well with the Consultants?

Its in Europe FYI. I've also nailed the prep for fit, with different situations in a STAR format.

He confided in us yesterday that he is gay. No one in family knows this. We all suspected but obviously it isn’t our place to say anything so we stayed out. He now told us that he wants to come out but is afraid of reactions and is asking for our help. More context in comments.
