I regret not having done my MBA from an IVY League B school. I have seen industry and HR professionals being biased towards people from IIMs and so on. While I am currently doing decently well, I can't help feel bad for experiencing the bias in terms of promotions and CTC.

Mamas how are y’all surviving going back to work after leave. I feel like I’m sinking over here. I’ve been back for a month and was put on a project with ridiculous hours. I’m literally on meetings while picking baby up from daycare, during feeding time, and after putting baby down to sleep. I have help, but my husband is working long hours as well and he actually commutes to the office everyday.
If you could pick from any of the following at Amazon, would you go for Senior Product Manager, one of the Retail Leadership Development Program roles, or Senior Program Manager? I’m in my MBA right now and honestly find all these roles interesting for different reasons.

I'm in a school that will start virtually. I think this is the safest option, but parents are arguing that it will be another disaster like the spring. Except we are more prepared in advance, are receiving training, and every child will have access from the start.
