Currently in industry and looking to come back to consulting. Looking at KPMG, PwC and Accenture as options to recruit for. Which has really good health insurance for maternity and how good was the maternity leave for you?
Hello ladies, here to post a question about children. I don’t have any of my own and am currently not married, but I am in a long term relationship. I hear many negative things about having child cont
Has anyone used sittercity? If so at what age do you think is appropriate? My wife and I disagree on its viability because of the the stranger watching your child factor.
Has anyone moved right after baby #2? We’re planning for #2 and a cross country move sometime in the next year. Is this a recipe for disaster? Any tips?
Stroller question: Uppababy Vista vs. Baby Jogger City Select? Suburban, first baby, pretty car dependent but love to walk around the neighborhood as much as possible.
I had braces as a kid, but looking to get invisalign for extra refinement (it’s been 15 years since I had my braces removed). Am wondering if I shouldn’t mention I had them in the first place for insurance purposes….has anyone experienced this before?
Any new moms get any aesthetic work done on tummy area to feel more confident again and in between babies? Thinking of cryo slimming or coolsculpting but don’t want to waste money if I’ll just have to do it again after a potential second baby
I got yelled at so much as a kid (still do). Now every mistake I make at work eats away at my soul, being super anxious I’ll get yelled at for my mistakes. But my seniors are never upset. I can’t stop this narrative in my head that “Oh shoot, they must think I’m an idiot” or I feel like I’m letting them down/and am a burden. I know that mistakes and review comments are part of learning, but I am seriously struggling with this. Any tips?
Last night I decided to leave my husband over recurring emotional infidelity. We have a one yo.
I’m worried abt how this will impact my career (I’m pretty early tenure) and don’t know how I could parent without a partner as a consultant
Also worried about how this will affect my finances immediately (I make more and have more in my retirement accounts) and in the long term
What should my next step be? I haven’t yet told him.

Pregnant mamas: how do you feel about being around unvaccinated adults? We just learned a good friend is unvaccinated with no plans to get the shot. They’re our favorite couple friends and we’d been seeing them once/week. Wife is vaccinated, husband wants to “wait and see.” I’m worried about pregnancy risk. What would you do?
Curious how other nannies are, but my full time nanny at home takes a couple naps each day. She feeds the baby well and helps with other house chores like cleaning, but from my POV she does not play with the baby enough, usually lets her read books or play music and then sits by. Then she would doze off for 15+ min at a time. My husband and i both have seen this. Is this normal?
I lived in tampa in my early 20s and am now in my late 30s and looking to move back. One of the reason I left is because I felt I had too much energy for the city for a single young professional, but now husband is from there and we have a kid but we are both social people. Do you guys find it easy to meet interesting people and has the city gotten any more fun?
Hi all! Could anyone help provide some insight into how good the maternity leave policy is at EY? Thank you 🙏🏻
I’m 6 months pregnant and scheduled a 30 minute meeting to chat with my HR rep to talk about our parental leave benefits (specifically how to navigate taking additional, unpaid time)…. She declined the meeting and directed me to review the policy documentation online and email her with any specific questions I have. Is that normal? Feeling a bit unsupported but also not trying to overreact
I have a rather long question. If I run out of space, I will continue in the first comment. I sponsor a GSA. There is a trans student who is always making sardonic comments in inappropriate times. We were talking recently, and every time a student bared their soul, this kid would make a joke out of it. The students who were speaking felt that they were not heard, and all of the attention was focused on this trans student.
Got roped into a black tie event for work and I have No idea what to wear— I feel like every black tie dress on Nordstrom is too revealing for a work event (strapless, low cut, has a giant ass silt in the leg) or is a very matronly, mother of the bride vibe and I’m 24 so. Pls advise my boss is a man so I have little guidance lol
Hi ladies. My best friend is pregnant at a pretty young age and is kind of scared (obviously). What can I do for her? Gifts, advice, support, etc??? Context below.

Hi! I’m trying to figure out how much to quote a company that has approached me for a 1-1.5 UIUX design, month long project. They have asked me to send them a quote as well as time availability. I believe I will be able to dedicate about 10-15 hours a week for the 1-1.5 months I’ll be working with them. The company is based in India but they have previously worked with US-based design agencies. I have 5 years of UIUX design experience and am currently freelancing with 2 other companies in the US @

A cliché but true story: I've got an amazing, supportive partner who would love more than anything to head to the country and do something with nature/farming. I'm tied to agency life (and I love it). So far he's been following me everywhere, but is there a happy ending here for both of us? Can anyone relate?
I’m almost four years in the industry, all at one agency. I’m in a small market and can’t really move to another city. My most recent review was positively glowing, and was the first GOOD review I’ve ever gotten from my CD in the four years I’ve worked for him. I was promised a raise and a title change (technically I’m still a junior). I’m so annoyed and feel so used, i’m not even excited about the good review and recently sold work. Kinda feeling lost, I guess.
How do I build my confidence around a particular type of tech bro? I just started a new job and I have to work with a dude who’s been there a few years. I’m trying to integrate our projects at my bosses request but every time I’m on a call with him he does that tech bro thing of talking really fast and using jargon. I am not confident in these situations and tend to not speak up on calls. I feel drained afterwards. He’s never outright rude but I get a condescending vibe from him.
Any great (or just interesting!) industry / networking groups in Chicago? A lot of them seem pretty tired but would love to join if there is something worthwhile!

Ok. You’re leading a giant meeting on your own. You’re managing a bunch of guys and reviewing their work. Other agency people see these meetings and assume that you are CO leading with these people--
Not work related but I didn't know where else to post. I just broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years. He was my first real boyfriend. I dated other guys but nothing that lasted this long. I love him but I don't think I'm in love with him. He's my best friend and can't imagine life without him but I also can't imagine getting married to him. I miss him terribly and regret breaking up but at the same time I'm scared to give him the commitment he wants and deserves. What is wrong with me?!!
I’m on a new account that has male clients and the other agency leaders are male. I was in a meeting where we arrived in masks but they decided it wasn’t necessary to wear masks since we were all vaccinated. I have stayed masked internally at meetings but I was caught off guard by how the client dynamic influenced me to take mine off when I preferred to keep on. I looked up the stats and men are less likely to wear masks and more likely to find them off putting. Anybody else running into this?
What is the best way to approach a resignation during the holidays? I’ve received a job offer I cannot refuse from a competing agency. I would’ve liked to remain at Grey for many years to come however promotion from within does not seem to be an operational consideration for “certain people” and I need to grow as a professional. I don’t want to burn bridges but I do need to take a new role in the new year. Any thoughts and/or opinions are welcome.

Does anyone have any advice on how to transition away from an agency? We are extremely understaffed and failing to meet deadlines. It’s exhausting and stressful, and the pay is next to nothing. I’m ready to move on from the agency career. Any advice for job titles to search for or know of anyone who is hiring? (Preferably a remote job but open to anything!)
I’m building a team within a new agency. I’ve worked hard for this opportunity. While battling serious imposter syndrome, I’m struggling with how to bring in people that might have a better skill set or more experience than me without fearing the company would “like them better”. I want to build the best team possible but deep down I worry that I will make myself redundant in the process. Any advice out there on how best to approach? Thanks Ladies.

I’ve lost weight in the past year and now everyone in the office won’t stop commenting on how “tiny” I am. Like ok, I lost weight, can we all get over it & stop commenting on women’s bodies? (Cont)
A junior member in my team asks me a question about following up with a client proactively, and I love that. The problem is that when I tell her it’s a good idea she would ask me to do it. I’m not her direct manager but she reports to my manager so often times my manager asks me to do what this junior tells me to do. It’s a weird dynamic and honestly I don’t feel great because it happens too much and she gets the praises for asking me. How do I bring this issue up? Do I go to my manager first?
Has anyone used Grove Collaborative? Thoughts? I’m thinking about trying it, but i’m not really sure yet.
Any tips for a Junior AD on how to dress comfortably and appropriately for very first shoot? Hot summer shoot at that. Seems like it would be straight forward but kinda stressed at the thought of it being really hot and not wanting to wear jeans or long pants 🙃 😩
