Okay, the “Work Mom” thing is annoying. If she were a dude, you’d call her a boss or mentor. No one has a “Work Dad.” Don’t play her like that. Possibly arises bc I loathe when agencies take powerful female CDs and introduce them as the “Team Mom.” My last ECD was a badass award winning inspiration, and everyone better address her as such 😂

I am a work dad, sort of. that’s our joke, it’s our sign of mutual respect.

Honestly I have a husband, that’s enough. I also don’t want to be your Work Mom, Work Co-Parent, Sibling, etc. Happy to be your friend, co-worker, mentor, sponsor, and sometimes coffee deliverer

My actual wife is the one who refers to my female AD partner as my work wife. It’s always seemed like a fun little bit of banter. Didn’t realize this was a negative thing 🤷🏻‍♂️

Both of your wives are cool! Hopefully you treat both of them well or you’ll be in double trouble hehe

I’ve had a work mom. A few, actually. Come to think of it, having a work dad would probably be weird.

I went through a few work husbands (some better than others) in my career, is that ok to say?

I think it’s weird too. It makes the relationship inherently have a sexual undertone to it. I feel it’s inappropriate.

It only has a sexual undertone because you give it one.

I’ve seen a couple posts lately with comments saying that people should not use a Roth 401k. Does the logic below capture the spirit of that concept? 1. Use trad. 401k to reduce taxable income now. Convert to trad. IRA once retired, then convert gradually to Roth IRA (ladder, SEPP, etc.) at lowest marginal tax rate 2. Use Roth IRA (and/or backdoor Roth) to take advantage of tax free growth and ability to withdraw principal early without penalty

Hi Fishes, Accenture has openings in their mobilization team under the ops division. I have been offered a role at CL9 with fixed component of around 15 LPA. I have 5.5 YOE. The offer is approximately a 100% hike on my previous salary however i was able to negotiate on my current offers from from EY and FSL (both less than Accenture offer). Is the HR lowballing me and would you have any feedback for the mobilization team. Thanks
