What are your agency’s policies regarding COVID? BBDO is still having us come in. My specific team mandates us to “come in but don’t sit remotely close to anyone”. It’s a bit nonsensical/shocking...
With all these folks quitting, where are they going? What are they doing? I'm 50+, so the idea of quitting my job with no immediate prospects scares the crap out of me. I get wanting to be happy, heck, I've changed jobs twice since COVID started, but just outright not working, I don't get it.

Hey friends. How much have people cut their rates w/ the pandemic? I have a gig through a staffing firm at $80/hr. Pre COVID was at $112/hr or $900 day.

What rates are people seeing for senior strat / associate director?
Need to leave for Canada in roughly a month because of US visa expiry but worried about potential travel restrictions in Canada given the bad covid situation. Are there any provinces that are not as hard hit by covid? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
I and my boyfriend have been dating over a year now. Our relationship in general is pretty smooth and sweet. The only problem is he has not come out to his parents yet. It was not an issue before the pandemic thing since we were just living in the city, being in our own bubble. But Covid happened and he moved back to stay with his dad. Since he is not out, he can’t pick up the phone call whenever I call him, he can’t tell his parents he is dating someone in the city. Cont.

What are your thoughts on someone trying to build wealth off of their grandparent because their own parents were incapable and both grandparents had to step in financial and were forced to pickup the slack. Currently grandma does not like when her grandchild asks for money despite the grandchild has a degree, own apartment, no car note and great savings. The grandchild wants to leave her apt to live rent free with her grandma and buy multi unit home and go to med school. Is this normal?

Any McKinsey&co mums. I’ve been contacted by a recruiter to discuss a position. I’m a mum of two very young girls (<2) and I’m wondering if that option is worth discussing, given the demanding schedule in the company. I’m keen to work and be successful, but not happy to leave my girls for 3-4 nights a week. Any intel greatly appreciated 🙏
2.5 year old keeps attacking (hitting, pinching, shoving, throwing things at) my 8 month old. Tried everything- saying “I’m going to move her to keep her safe”, tried time outs. It wasn’t always like this, he was kind to her before. Not sure what is going on, but he’s been in attack mode for a few weeks with the worst of it today. Please help.

Anyone have experience giving birth at a teaching hospital? Would love to hear your experiences.
A new app just came out that seems very similar to this group, but not anonymous. It’s advice sharing/q+a format and you can “follow” the people that you want to keep in your feed. I kind of like that it’s not anonymous - it gives a face to who you’re connecting with, it allows you to continue to connect to the people you want to, and there’s probably less rudeness/snarkiness. It’s called Partof - https://apps.apple.com/us/app/partof/id6443841020.
**I’m not affiliated with the app at all, I just happen to follow the founder and saw her post!

I have been dealing with gestational hypertension and wrote my own coverage plan pending my manager’s approval. Now he is canceling 1:1’s with my right and left and has yet to give his formal approval or disapproval of the plan. I’m getting very tempted to casually let his boss and our group VP know that I have written this so it doesn’t come back on me as poor planning. Any advice?
Moms with children in daycare:
My son just turned one a few months ago and moved into the toddler class with other 1-2 year olds.
I knew this age would mean lots of bruises as he navigates walking and actually playing and engaging with other kids. But it seems like every week he has another bruise. Honestly more like every other day. Arms, legs, head, and even back.
Well, today he came home with a full on bite mark where I can clearly see the top and bottom teeth outline.
I have a 1-year-old and am usually scrambling in the morning before work. So, I do not eat breakfast often. With busier work days (in-person), I'm barely getting a chance to leave for lunch. Anybody have breakfast and lunch ideas for a busy and unorganized mom?
