How do you ladies deal with pre menstrual syndrome? I try to exercise and eat comfort food but I cry like a baby every month 😢😭 I get reminded of all the bad things thats happening or happened in my life and cry over. Any tips or suggestions to overcome this?
I’ve turned 27 years old today and my father doesn’t give a shit about it. We didn’t celebrate. He yelled at me for waking up too late (it was 11am and I live in my own apartment). My family is here just to visit. I come from an immigrant family FYI. It’s like we’re not allowed to have fun somehow and always focused on work and chores. I hate all this negativity… Been patient and trying to stay patient.
Anyone else get irrationally bothered by spastic typers? The kid in the cube next to me POUNDS on his keyboard with sudden flurries of frenzied typing and slams on the backspace and return keys.

How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks

Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!
Ladies, how do you know if your husband is a father material? My husband is in eager talks about us having children while I am on the fence. My dad took 80% care for me when I was young(cooking, cleaning, diapers, bottle feeding, etc) so my expectations for a father is way higher. My husband, seems to be still in the stage of transitioning from bachelor to husband, like he takes out trash, cook once per week, do laundry (no folding)when I ask. Not sure if that’s what it takes for me to predict.
Anyone here go to daycare as a child while your parents worked? Do you feel like it impacted your relationship with your parents today? My daughter goes to daycare while I work and I want to make sure we have a great relationship despite not being together 24/7.

👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️
33 F. All of my friends are having babies. I get really lonely when they aren’t available because they are either tired from child rearing or are actively rearing their children. Happens every weekend, lots of evenings. On top of it, I feel outside of female work groups because I don’t have kids and just can’t talk about the things they talk about. I don’t know how to make this feeling go away, but being exhausted and putting my career on the line for a kid is not the answer. Anyone else?
If anyone is looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested. Happy to chill all day but full of energy outdoors. 🐾 https://petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1159058?awo=Atlanta+Lab+Rescue&widget=false
I have a toddler and things aren’t great at home. Give me a reality check : I basically spent all day yesterday with the baby alone as my husband was doing other things. When I got home, I asked him if he could bring the baby in as my back was killing me, his response: you need to be lifting her more, I want you to have toned not flabby arms like the other moms. Don’t be lazy. I didn’t say anything at time but burst into tears with my mom this evening. I am overweight but the way he phrased it..
Everyone has the right to choose, but you do not get to choose the consequences of that choice. You can choose to not get vaccinated but the consequences might be that you have to change jobs or vaccinated people choose not to be around you. If you choose to not vaccinate your child then the consequence might be that you have to homeschool them. Choices all have consequences - whether good or bad.

I understand we have an honor system with return to office. I have a quite a few coworkers who haven’t taken the vaccine (lots of antivaxxers here) who have made it clear they intend to lie in order to return to office/client site. Is this normal at other firms or is this BAH only?

We have a leader who likes to use casual rap slang (he’s a white male) to be funny. Nothing overtly offensive or derafatory, just like “word” or other things...just occasionally...though while speaking internally. I heard a couple complaints that it’s not sensitive (from people who are not of bipoc) - thoughts? Does this need a talk?

Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
Hi folks! There are some openings in PwC for the below roles. Please dm me if you need a referral. Best wishes!
I moved to US 5 years ago. Intra company transfer. I am fairly successful here however sometimes feel guilty of taking away American job. Why do I feel this? I have unique skill set. I think I deserve it. But stigma of offshor-ing American jobs (conservative media talking points) makes me sad. Thoughts? P.S. I make a lot of money so cheap resource rhetorics don’t apply to me.
