Any men on here still close with their mom/family (by close I mean live near by, see them a few times a month and enjoy spending time with their parents?) just found out I’m pregnant with 2nd boy cont
5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
I’m a 1st year prob 1 teacher & I just found out I’m pregnant (due mid-June). Definitely NOT planned and VERY stressed nervous. It’s hard to be happy right now. Advice on telling my principal, etc?
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months
I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.
When you had your first child, how old were you? What was your household income and net worth? Did you feel ready financially?

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Hi moms - my baby is 6 months old soon and we are going go start solids for her. I would love to hear recs / tips around solid feeding. Any blogs / articles that you recommend to read / follow? What are you favorite products for feeding? In addition, for the age of 6 months to 9 months, what are some of your baby favorite toys / activities (especially during this pandemic time). Thank you all so much!
I am currently on maternity leave and returning to work in about 2.5 months. I work in PA and have been thinking about a career move lately. On one hand I want to return to work with something I am familiar with to help with the transition, but the thought of going through another busy season and constant demand at work is just dreadful.. Has anyone successfully landed another job while still on maternity leave, and how was your experience?
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?
How common are leaves of absence in PA? I’ve never seen someone out of work longer than a couple weeks other than for parent leave, but people on fishbowl talk about it as something you can reasonably ask for.
Anyone have experience with being laid off after coming back from maternity leave? My family member recently did and we have email documentation that it’s related to her maternity leave...
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...

I'm 20 years old. New to consulting. Been rejected by 2 Clients and I think it's because I look like a kid with a baby face. Any advice on this? Not sure what to do and feel discouraged
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
In-house newbie here. I’ve been put in charge of drafting up a corporate policy that creates a process for employees to object to working with a client for ethical reasons. We are a vendor in the SaaS space. What legal claims should be included here? Religious, political.... anyone in HR know of a good resource to point me to specifically for this topic?

Hey. Just completed a kick ass workshop with a great client. Do you guys have cool collaboration capability where you work?
How do I reach more BIPOC designers? Let me start off by saying I identify as Latinx and I am not trying to tokenize anyone or to discriminate against white candidates. I’m looking to add to our design team and I’ve been really trying to add diversity to our company. Anytime we put out the word we’re looking for more senior design roles the majority of candidates are white males. I don’t want to shut talent out, I just want to make sure our opportunities are seen.
Thought this was a great interview with James Carville - as someone who feels pretty center left, this mostly makes sense to me: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/22338417/james-carville-democratic-party-biden-100-days Fellow fish, where do you think the missing links are for the dems to win on these issues? I actually think Biden’s messaging strategy has been largely impeccable
Anyone exited to contract consulting? Thoughts on availability of work, hourly rate increases, longterm network building? Trying to decide if the wlb would be worth leaving, as I have health insurance through spouse.

How are EY India's Health Plan Choices? How much coverage they provide? I am about to start working with EY India, so if they provide a good coverage then I will stick to their plan, otherwise I will start investigating health plans outside.
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
For those that live in NYC, do you really feel that it has accelerated your career? What is it about the city that makes people claim that it is that much better for networking and exit opportunities?
Hello, anyone from Akamai technologies, Bangalore?? Need some info on the employee benefits (covid benefits). Thank you.
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
