What are your thoughts on a gf who just wants to be a stay at home mom in the future?

Best ways to root out the red flags in a teaching job interview and a school tour? I'm finally ready to get back to the classroom but don't want to end up at another toxic place where admin doesn't look out for the teachers at all. I know to avoid places where janitorial stuff is being ignored or other health and safety issues, but this is only my second interview (worked for 10 years at my old school, left during covid). TIA!
I already know this is going to sound pretentious so I apologize in advance but am genuinely curious. When I was applying, I only really considered MBB (and less so Bain because of focus areas since I'm not that interested in PE) - for those at other firms, what drove that decision?

hello all - interviewing with Alvarez & Marsal for their Business Technology group, and am curious to WLB & culture.

Thanks!

I’ve noticed companies are starting to ask if you wish to identify if you’re LGBTQ+ when applying for jobs. When I’ve gone along with this I notice recruiters focus more on diversity and employee groups, and it’s making me feel like I’m being interviewed as a potential diversity hire, especially when I’ve received interviews from companies that are prone to boy’s club culture. I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Anyone else experience it or have thoughts?
If you're freelancing or on staff at a Chicago agency/client, how did you get the interview? How'd you get hired? Did you know someone who got you in? Did your cold email/Linkedin request get you in?
I have a business case interview with Acumen/Salesforce for a Marketing BA role. I’ve never done a case interview before, but I’m wondering if it will be asking about best uses for Salesforce/marketing cloud in the scenario provided, or if it’s a typical case? The recruiter said it’ll be interactive and test problem solving.

How is it at other firms? I like Audit for the most part but I’m kind of over my firm. My clients suck and they’re way under billed so my job realization is garbage. Then I’m getting hounded on utilization so if I eat hours my realization is better but then it looks like I’m not doing the work. I’m only a senior and don’t understand why this is my problem. But I’m so over the budget talks. I’m a high performer so I’m not getting these talks bc the work is lacking. It’s pressure coming down

How do I incorporate an assistant without having to constantly double-check work?
Have been struggling to incorporate an assistant well. I feel like I have to look everything over so much that it doesn't save too much time and I would almost be better off doing everything myself again and keeping the few thousand a month it costs me. I realize it does look more professional to clients, and there are some simple tasks that don't require review, but any advice?

Looking for Advice: I am an HR Associate at a midsized company. I was just informed that our HR Generalist put in their resignation. My boss (HR Director) let me know that I am going to be taking on more responsibilities (previous responsibilities of the Generalist role). I’m wondering… should I request a role change or ask for a bigger salary/more compensation? What is appropriate in this situation?
Any advice is appreciated. :)
Im intending to resign and I've shared it with my boss. I will officialise this next week. However, I think my director (his boss) would be giving me a hard time for the whole month of notice... how should I go about this? Thanks a million in advance.

Hi everyone! Just looking for some insight. I’m about 4 years into HR, have my bachelors. I’ve been toying around with the idea of getting my masters in something relating to compliance/labor law and that side of HR. Shrm certification is also on my list. If anyone has some advice on what to get a masters in specifically, I’d be open to suggestions! I’m trying to find something that would be worth my while and would give me a step up. Thanks!
As an experienced, SHRM certified HRBP , I would just like some feedback on your opinion of the differences in the roles between an HRBP an HR Manager besides the obvious that the manager should have direct reports. I am an HRBP and work in step with 3 HRM’s. They all 3 just got out of cycle raises of between 5-20% 😳 and I received nothing. I am quite aware of our HR code that salary is confidential but I was told about this. Would you be looking for other employment? Or stay?

Hey all! New to Fishbowl. Looking to send some direct messages. Can I get some help here 😁
My CEO is looking to tighten up our work from home program and get people back into the office more. Most are out 3 to 4 days a week. It's not that they aren't working, but we are missing the energy you get as a collective. I suggested 3 days in office 2 days out and the 3rd week of the month is a hell week, everyone is in 5 days!!! (Of course i wouldn't say that publicly, just for the explanation of this scenario) Any suggestions. I would love to know if anyone else is in a similar situation
