I go back to work tomorrow from maternity leave 😣 prior to having my baby work was the center of my life (I know, prob not the best setup) but over leave my priorities obviously shifted and I no longer want to subscribe to the hustle culture. How do I set those expectations when I start back? I’m obviously going to give my all during work which is still more output than most but that may look different than before. I want to set boundaries from day 1. Thanks mamas!
Did anyone accept a job while pregnant? When did you tell your new employer and how did they react?
Hi! I’ve been a voluntary benefits agent with a few different carriers for 5 1/2 years. I’m currently the AE for 75+ accounts. I am completely burnt out on prospecting for new groups and wish to transition into a career without sales quotas. Could be in insurance or another industry. My favorite part of my role now is educating/counseling people on benefit options. I’m wondering if there are others who’ve been in the same boat. Open to any suggestions!
An orthodox father can really make your life a living hell
You will lose all self confidence, you will question your existence, i spent 25 yrs of my life trying to impress my father but in vain.
Missed all opportunities, lost friends, always scared to do new things because i was pulled back. I repent why i even listened to him
Now I see no point living my life anymore

A long life lived doesn’t erase the pain of the loss. She was ours for 96 years; She was our Queen Mother. Her contributions to making a way for those who followed in her regal footsteps will never be forgotten. While I need this news not to be true, the reality of it is starting to rest heavily on my chest. Thank you Miss Cicely Tyson, but now it’s time to take your much deserved rest. Good night...
Something I used to do with my father before he died was fixing his home garden. Thanks to that now whenever I get a new property to sell I dedicate myself to fixing the garden before showing it, I learned to do it very fast and very aesthetically. Have you ever fixed houses by yourself to improve sales?

Is being a realtor a maternity friendly job? I’ve been in residential sales for a year and I’m thinking of starting a family now. How did you manage to run your business and start a family at the same time? How long was your mat-leave for? Is being part of a team better than solo at this stage? Any advice would be appreciated ladies
Got as far as an offer letter for a patient experience position but their offer is $10 lower than what I currently make. What can I use as leverage for negotiations? What can I include in a benefits package to make the lower wage worth my while?
I recently received an offer from a big 4 company. I am very happy with where I am currently working. I’m unsure if I should take it. I feel valued at my firm and I am not micromanaged. There are many benefits to staying however, it’s a big 4.. feels like a sin to turn it down.
The main reason I feel inclined to take it is for the name and the exposure. Can I have some thoughts on what you would do in this situation?
See below for additional help needed on how to approach negotiation..
Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

May have an opportunity to transition out of patient care into working remotely from home doing healthcare Recruiting. Would be a pay cut, is it worth it ?
Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.

I’m an analyst at a small(ish) REPE firm. We’re looking to unroll a pretty comprehensive Multifamily strategy and I’m tasked with hammering it out internally. Part of this is choosing a RE consulting firm to engage. We’re looking for people to gather a lot of data on various markets and create various economic reports. Also other data as needed to make a slide deck. Anybody have recommendations/personal experience at a consulting firm with Multifamily practice?

Shortly after George Floyd's death, this video commentary by Kimberly Jones went viral. As a white person, it's hard for me to watch because of its powerful raw truthfulness. But I think every white person should sit down and watch this video because it clearly explains the frustrations and fears of Black people as well as the BLM movement and the difference between protesting, rioting, and looting.

Advice needed: Current project leadership is￼ planning resources for next phase of project. They are putting the same person in charge of a very major Workstream￼ that they have managed badly this far. You’ve had to bail out that Workstream to the detriment of your own workload. Next phase of work is going to be more difficult. What would you do?
