Any single mothers by choice in the Bowl? Curious how you make it work and if you see a career in consulting as being a viable path as a solo parent with no backup partner.
I’ve had multiple parents ask me if work is required now that we’re not returning for the remainder of the year. I’m worried my students will regress so much... any ideas to create parent buy in?
After a really bad week at work, I was happy about an unpgrade while going back home. Spent 15 minutes with a 9 month kid next to me who was with his grandfather. The kid loved me and made me smile 🙆

Sister just had a baby, best pre/ready made meal delivery service in the area? Preferably not something like Blue Apron/Hello Fresh where you have to make it. Thank you!
My mother has been through so much, especially right before her divorce with my father. Her life hasn’t been the same since and she is still struggling (financially, emotionally). She’s an amazing woman and it kills me, literally kills me that she’s hurting. There’s absolutely nothing I can do to make her better but be there for her. I don’t know how to not let this sense of dread and sadness overwhelm me. She’s my mother. Has anyone been through something similar? Thanks ❤️
I had a parent call my principal & said that they HEARD "I turned out the lights and made a racist comment.” Should I call my legal rep for added protection?
My father didn't want me to become a doctor because of the long hours and time away from home....So I became a consultant.....
I may get some heat for this but it’s my real fear: I’m afraid to get pregnant b/c my body heals very slowly (eg:2 months healing for just a scratch), can have infections due to small surgeries, and.
My husband and I are in 2nd month of trying to get pregnant. Been on BC on and off for the last 15 years. Taking prenatal vitamins, watching ovulation, watching diet, any other suggestions?
Just got an offer to a Fortune 100 company in FP&A with 1 year of B4 experience. The position wanted 4-5 years and an MBA was preferred. If you want out of B4 leave whenever you want being miserable for another couple years won’t help that much!
Does Deloitte start green card process after you make senior or they will wait till your h1b extension expires?
So how does it work when a role is fully remote, but you are in a high cost of living area but company HQ is not? Do they usually offer based on cost of living in their home city?
Does it make sense for me to file for AOS right now? I have a Canadian passport and I am on H1b but want to quit Deloitte next year and go back to India for a couple of years due to family reasons. Will filing for AOS now mean I will be abandoning my green card petition when I leave. Also AOS will prevent me from getting a TN visa to return.
Mr. Hotel manager- I'd give you a better rating if you and your 5 staff didn't ask me how my stay was as I'm running late out the door at 6:30 am. Let's cut the small talk.
For those who left audit for FP&A how many years experience did you have? Did you have to take a pay cut? I only have 3 years in public accounting and applying to some FP&A positions (I probably will have to take an analyst title?) as well but nor sure how attractive of a candidate I would be and if it’s even worth the effort
How long does COVID live on clothing? Wondering if I should be dry cleaning my coat every day after emergent patient clinic
Do your coworkers update their slack statuses for every moment they’re away from their computers? Like lunch, dog walk, break, exercise, etc? I feel like I have to justify my every move with an emoji status.
My male colleague followed me on social media and I am freaking out. I only post like 4 times a year but I have some vacation bathing suit pictures on there from a few years ago. I recently made my profile public because I had a craft I was hoping would get shared in a contest (which is my own dang fault, not worth it!) so he automatically gets to follow me now unless I go in and block him. Just mad at myself. We work together all the time but are not friends...and he’s senior of course.
Kavanaugh aside - I’m curious on the whole “this isn’t a job interview so due process isn’t important line”. Do folks really believe that? Abstract it away from him. Like any accusation gets u fired..
How would you go about applying for a different position within the firm? I'm in Assurance and would like to switch to IFS and saw an opening I'd like to try for. Would you apply directly on PwC site.

Curious what others think or have done: In industry and currently have an equity retention bonus (shares vest all at once 2 yrs from today) if I jump to another company, should I: - look to be made whole - take pennies on the dollar - expect nothing - assume this is what the sign on bonus is meant to ‘cover’ I get that hiring company “doesn’t owe me anything” but also feel like I’m leaving money on the table.
