So let’s say if someone’s father / very close relative was very high up in the government of India in Delhi. How does that person go about leveraging his / her relationships, legally, to do something in India? Would you rather do that or stay in the US in consulting?
Has anyone else heard of this happening. Eight month pregnant women let go as part of a round of layoffs.
Pregnant with my second and my oldest will be 23 months when baby 2 arrives. What do I need to get with a second (second monitor, double stroller, what else?) TIA!
Watching an AA confront the Senator who tried to limit her education as a child on the debate stage for the US presidency was powerful. It illustrated why passing the torch is needed.
Who all is planning to participate in the mother's day strike this week?
I want to participate but I don't think I can just not work for the entire week. Still thinking of striking by no restaurants or shopping etc etc.
McKinsey EMs - if i lateraled in, is it accurate to expect that I’d only get like 2 hours of personal time a day, at least mon-wed?
That’s what I’ve heard but trying to understand the typical workday to the extent that exists (i know it’s highly variable). Consensus seems to be 8-10, with maybe 15 minutes for lunch, 2 hours for dinner. And then try to sign off by 7 Thursday and by 5 on Friday?
Is this accurate or can some folks have much better? Asking mostly bcuz have a small child now.
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
Denver culture (and suburb areas): interested to know how easy is it to make friends here. Both husband and I are late-30s, early 40s with a kid going into middle school. I’ve got a great friend group where we live now, but looking for simpler and cheaper way of life but dreading not being able to make friends.
Things I was concerned about as a child:
- quick sand
- coming across Indian burial grounds and becoming cursed
Things I'm concerned about now:
- slowly getting older and slower
- becoming a ghost
- shitting my pants.
Ugh. First okcupid DTF and now hidden valley ranch BFD. Lazy and trying too hard at the same time. And to make it more relatable to suburban dads, they got the kid to say- I’ve got your bfd right here
My kid is moving up to the next classroom at daycare next week. Is it weird to get the old teachers a little thank you gift? We love them and will miss them. Any ideas of what to give?
Government agency attorney (child welfare) with 20 years of litigation experience. With that said, I am looking to relocate to the DMV and practice in a non-litigation role. Any tips re: where to start?
Good places for a baby shower on a Saturday in June that can realistically be booked? Probably 15-20 people in attendance. Price is not too much of an issue. Not sure if a restaurant or something else would be appropriate. Was only told very recently so the date isn’t up for negotiation. I’ve never planned one before so all guidance welcomed! Boston, Cambridge, Somerville locations all fine.
Did anyone suddenly have a problem with spicy food when they got pregnant? FTM but 2nd pregnancy. The same thing happened in the last pregnancy and the doctor thought it was odd. I get really bad cramps whenever I eat spicy food... before I’d be the person ordering level 5 (out of 5) spice at Thai restaurants. I’m only 5 weeks.
Also when does the cramping in general stop? I understand the body is expanding etc but I’m in pain constantly and I don’t know what’s normal vs not. OB appt next week.
What do I do if I see a parent out in the community? I want to be friendly, but should I leave them alone?
Just checked into Marriott and did not get upgraded with platinum status. Thought this was because they were booked, but another person who is gold got upgraded. Any thoughts on how many points can be had. I'd prefer a room, but it's a bit annoying since I'm traveling with family and a baby and we unpacked our bags
I got an offer letter from a company working as a WFH 1099 contractor for 2 years then to hire if everything goes well. It’s 40 hours a week + I currently have a toddler who goes to daycare full time, but we were planning on trying for a second child within the next year. Anyone else pregnant during a similar experience? I’ve heard of companies letting contractors go in the past since they aren’t an employee and I’m nervous about that.

I want to book a special massage but am scared.
family annual expense at approx 100k. Emergency savings currently at 60k. Brokerage account at 60k as well. Already have a house but would like to buy a bigger one in 5 years. Should we put the extra money each month towards savings account (which pays 0.6% interest) or stop contributing to savings and put more in investing? Looks like neither is good option at this time

I work at a scale up, I have lots of options and stand to make some decent money if we get bought. But from what I can see there is no chance of us getting bought. B2B SaaS, 25% churn, 692 customers, 11M ARR, no product market fit, lots of tech debt, and things seem to be getting worse. We got a series A at $20M and a series B at $20M a year and a half later. Any insight for me?

My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.

Hey all, I’m a software engineer of about 2.5 years now and I really want to make a career transition to Sales Engineers. I was recently given the opportunity to apply as Solution Engineer with a path to transition into a Sales Engineer at a nice company, but they decided to not move forward with my application after I applied. I am wondering what I can do to break through into Sales and make the transition :)

Does anyone have any advice for summer employment? I’m an ESL teacher in NJ. I’ve applied for jobs in my district and other districts around me. I would prefer to not work for companies like VipKid or Magic Ears.
I love it when students make me laugh. I feel like it strengthens our connection so much. I wish I did it more. When was the last time you laughed with your students, and what was it about?
Does anyone work in a district that has wording in their contact where documents or expectations for events are required to be completed or shared in a set amount of time before the event? We have student conferences every fall and spring with the dates set in the district calendar, yet we always seem to get paperwork for these conferences about 10 minutes before they're supposed to start. Wouldn't it nice to have a couple days to prepare?
