Most awkward Uber stories? My uber driver showed me a picture of her baby. Um, it was a doll.
I'm pregnant with my first baby and unsure when to tell people at work. Part of me thinks ill be overlooked for any good case work as soon as they know.
Also, if I take a year out will I find it impossible to come back?
Do you have to prove how old your infant is in order to get maternity or paternity leave and is there a limit? My husband and I would like to stagger our leave.
Anyone else's parents overwhelmed with six hours of synchronous and asynchronous work? How can I make it easier? I'm stumped, my district has stated online lessons can only go 1 min for every year of the students' age? So there is a lot of parent and video teaching. Parents feel like they shouldn't be 1:1 with their kid all day. Help, I've really tried to make it easy as possible and still cover all the bases. Help.
We're a small division and need some help testing. Do you think it would be a conflict of interest to have an ESL teacher proctor the ACCESS if their child was one of the students?
I think DCFS should be called for a student and we brought it to the principal but because the students grandmother works at the school they decided to let her handle it. What would you do in this situation I don’t think the child is being physically or sexually abused but I don’t think his living situation is safe or healthy for him?
What are some unique and trendy benefits you have/have seen (e.g. Uber Eats allowance) other than the traditional PTO, 401k, and maternity leave? I’m working on a project that is revamping our benefits and would love some out of the box ideas!
Creatives - How old were you when you made it to Creative Director? What about ECD/VP/etc? If you’re a working mother how many years were you set back bc of that?
Has anyone had experience trying to bring their parent to Canada permanently? I’m looking to move from Asia - just lost a parent, so need to find a way to stay with my other parent. how does the process work? TIA!
I am starting to buy maternity clothes. I am debating ordering a bigger black blazer vs. a blazer advertised as maternity wear. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
Deloitte new mamas - do you actually have to give up your laptop when you go on maternity leave? Any way around this? My reference decks and fact packs are so important to me!
From a child’s perspective
SO anxious about our Embryo transfer. I’m 38, low ovarian reserve-ended up with 1 good embryo. Terrified after reading about miscarriages after a successful transfer. I know it’s selfish considering I already have a child, but not being close to my family/my husband not having a big family- it’s super important for my son to have a sibling. 1. Aside from acupuncture, how did you cope with stress? 2. If you’re partner isn’t willing to go through another cycle- what is your contingency plan?
What’s everyone wearing to the office these days?? Im one of the lucky pwc 100% virtual folks and have a lunch with our group leaders tomorrow in Boston. Im fairly curvy and large booty/boobed. What is appropriate? Last time I dressed for work it was just a top where my shoulders seemed appropriate 😅. Do jeans still work? Omg what about shoes… I wear moccasins everywhere 😱
I’ve also since had another baby and just man, im feeling overwhelmed now. Help! Picture ideas appreciated
Do you have your high kids help out lower kids in the classroom? If my high kid finishes early, could I pair him with another student? I try to arrange seating so that high, middle, low are mixed.
I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual.
Women are more than their looks.
Hi, contemplating a bcg expert track PL role after 5 years of ops consulting. Any perspectives on the career trajectory on the expert track vs generalist track? Are the expert track folks really given a 'step child' treatment? Any thoughts on potential exit opportunities?

So 28 y/o South Asian female here about to be divorced. Some days I'm like 'yeah I'll totes find someone great after this shitty time in my life' and some days I'm like 'hmm idk I'm not so sure.'
Has anyone else ever judged you for being divorced when you went on dates? Do other south Asian men care about it? Or just other men in general?

I’ve been struggling with anxiety for a while. It’s not crippling but it does take a huge toll on my mental health. I’ve tried Zoloft but I feel it makes me apathetic and therefore decreases my work ethic. Does anyone have any medication recommendations or general advice for dealing with anxiety with a high-stress job? (Obv will consult my doctor too.)

If you have two people who are assigned the same work and given the same resources/tools, but one person is more efficient/skilled and get their work done in 4 hours a day, would you penalize the more efficient worker for not being glued to their computer and running errands or going to the gym instead? (Say that they ask the team if anyone needs help, they are responsive to emails/ims and get all their work done).

I’m 23 and <1 year in consulting since graduating. I work at a lesser known firm doing big 4-comparable work, and lately I’ve been feeling anxious about my choice in starting company. From LinkedIn research and general lack of awareness of what I really want to do, I feel like the lack of prestige of the company I started with will prevent me from succeeding big in the future. Anyone have success stories or advice?
