Just got my first job out of college, and I've opened a HSA with my firm. Do I invest the funds (I have about 1k right now) or do I just keep it for a rainy day injury/medical needs? Am healthy.
Have any of the consulting firms improved their time off recently?
I want to move from EY but want to make sure I can keep the number of days off.
25 PTO + 10 sick days = 7 weeks right now as Senior at EY

Hello fitness / nutrition people! I feel like I can figure out my nutrition when it comes to linking it with my fitness. I’m F, 30 years old, 5’5 and 110 lbs. I don’t want to lose weight but am working on general cardio health (endurance), toning, and some muscle building. I do high intensity workouts and some lifting. What / when should I be eating beforehand? If I don’t eat I have a bad workout. Today I tried eating a bigger lunch about 3 hours beforehand and felt sick/too full. Help!
Parents: thoughts for a fun winter break trip within 3-4 hour flight time? Solo parent + kid. We don't ski.
That feeling when the Medical Review team agrees that, yes, on reflection the bold new messaging and unique positioning isn't actually an overclaim.
That feeling when this means all the materials need to be redone in short order.
Deloitte moms-suggestions for baby related ways to use the well-being subsidy (NOT a jogging stroller)? I already use part of it for monthly massages...
When you are (or were) trying to get pregnant, did you tell anyone you were trying? Our first baby was a surprise so not sure what people usually do when trying!
Just moved to LA and have a convo scheduled with 72andSunny. I’m a new mom just coming off mat leave- does anyone know the intel there on wfh days, support for leaving on time, other mom support?
Anyone else get super annoyed when a student hands in late work and the parent immediately asks you why it’s not graded and posted? 😡
I’ve worked in clinical research in the academic/non profit world for the past five years. I want to transition to a role in pharma or a CRO, but haven’t been successful yet because I don’t have industry experience. Does anyone know of any CROs/pharma companies that are willing to hire someone with research expertise from an academic medical center rather than already in industry? Thanks!
Favorite maternity brands?
Currently a size XL/14 in most brands, and struggling to find decent workwear in the maternity world.
Moms: Please help me with your top tricks and suggestions for a much awaited long distance travel. Husband and I would be traveling 14 hours with our 15 month old, and wondering if we should book 2 business seats vs 3 economy seats? Should we fly direct back break the journey? What would you do differently if you flew again and what worked well for you?
Anyone else been told that injuries requiring medical intervention and follow up are just part of the job?
Ladies what would you do? We were at a classmates bday party and one of the kids also attending the party (not the classmate). Pushed my daughter twice. She is ~3.5 and younger than most kids playing together who who were more like 4. Is this common? How do you intervene. They were all in the bounce house and this guy was targeting my child no one else. I have taught her to push back but she just does not do it and starts crying when this happens. It has been going on in school too!
Slalom moms, could you share any details on Slalom’s paid parental leave / maternity leave policy? How is your work-life balance? Would love to especially hear from people at the Principal level.
I have 10 years experience in medical and 6 years experience as a pre certification specialist in Urology and UroGYN. My current hourly rate for my years of experience and time with the company is just abysmal. I’m looking for a place I can grow my skills and my knowledge while being fairly compensated. If there are any opportunities, please reach out.
Hi, my husband was diagnosed Covid on Monday. I told a few partners I worked for (and made clear that I have to take him to hospital for treatment and follow up checks) and pretty much got no sympathy. Every email started with hope he feels better but when your get a second, could you do this? Could you do that? So today I am confirmed Covid (and I’m pregnant), haven’t told work about Covid or pregnancy. What should I do? What’s the expectation of time off if you get Covid at a law firm?
How long did it take y’all to find your in-house job? I’m smart and hard working. Just tired of the biglaw grind and ready for a more humane job. I can’t seem to get ANY traction with in-house job apps😭 really regretting going to law school at all. Feels like I’ll be on the exhausting law firm treadmill forever.
Anyone has experience working in Spencer Stuart’s PE Advisory practice? According to the recruiter this group is involved in pre-deal diligence work for mega funds. I want to learn more about their work in this space. I understand the practice is only a year old.
You guys better accelerate your investments into Bitcoin before the demand accelerates (internationally used again for emphasis) the increase in price!
El Salvador is offering free residency to people who own 3 BTC!!
with all the bad stuff continuing to come out about FB, I’m struggling internally with having to essentially add to their revenue but I like my job so not sure what sort of roles to look for that don’t contribute to the Zuckerberg monopoly but are still within paid social.
Going through a breakup for the first time in my life where neither of us did anything wrong, neither of us are bad people, its just bad timing, conflicting schedules, careers and locations. Decided to go on a break but not really sure it will truly ever come back around.
Feeling very sad and missing him a lot. Getting over someone who is actually a good person is so much harder than getting over a jerk who may have lied, cheated etc.
Its a very strange feeling because theres no hostility.
Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
Don’t know if it’s just me, but anyone else slightly annoyed they can never get in on any cryptos early enough? Seems like the majority of the top 100-150 has shot 100x+ the ICO price...

Currently recruiting for a trucking company. I have been told a few times that my experience there for the last year isn't what companies want to hire for a professional recruiter...
How can I better market myself and show that I can learn regardless of who I am currently recruiting???
Where to poach digital partners from? My Americas team is growing fast. Best fit is people tired of pure digital strategy/advisory who want a high caliber build capability so they can bring ideas to life for clients. What firms have digital-experienced partners looking for that kind of move?

Thanks fir creating this bowl.. much needed
How’s everyone doing?
Love that someone started this bowl. Not sure if anyone follows Nedra Tawaab but her posts have helped me a LOT! Stay strong y’all. ❤️
Not estranged, but feeling like I’d love to be. My adult sister comes and stays with me on holidays instead of with our parents (who live an hour away) because my house is nicer. Comes and goes when she pleases, takes calls on speaker at the dinner table, goes in the fridge and helps herself to whatever she wants without asking, expects us to feed her, invites her boyfriend over and they eat and drink to their heart’s content. I have a baby and she didn’t even offer to supervise while I take a…
Thank you so much for creating this bowl 💜
Welcome to a brand new bowl! The idea to start this bowl came from a post about family estrangement. Hopefully this becomes a place where those of us who are estranged from family can connect with others in the same place who “get it”. Whether it’s to discuss our experiences, share insights around tricky topics like the holidays or questions from well meaning coworkers, or anything else that would be appreciated.
Please also feel free to share photo ideas to change the bowl photo!
Yes this bowl is needed. Support needed. I’m estranged from most of my family. And one is very Sick and i feel guilt. This person hasn’t helped me in times of need nor been a good person to me. Yet I still feel guilt. Why? Because they are family and I think that is what I should do.
Hey everyone! With the holiday season coming up (in the US at least) wanted to offer some words of encouragement
