Genuinely want to know, was any mom’s career progression/promotion being held back because you took a maternity leave? I had my Relationship leader told me that was part of the reason I was not promoted.
Hi all, choosing between a boutique pharma R&D consulting firm for a 30%+ increase in comp or a “strategy” role at a fortune 5 health insurance provider (brand new team, not as personable, unsure of scope) for a 35%+ increase in comp and possibly larger bonus. Gut reaction? I like the people at the consulting firm and think it could be more niche and lucrative long term but lower comp up front. Would I top out at the F5 earlier and get sick of the same aspects that have me leaving B4?
I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
Does anyone know of an organization that I can join that has international benefits information? I have tried IFEBP but they do not have information on Africa or India. I am looking to stay up to date on best practices in these countries.
I was just hired as HR Generalist/department of one/first HR hire for a small start-up. First week in and I find out that previous COO is in rehab and has made some some egregious promises around comp, additional benefits to EEs, and also made some decisions that cost the company a significant amount of money. Company has offered to pay for 2 months leave. Now it seems like owner and other execs do not want this person to return. What do I need to consider regarding termination? Is ADA at play?

Thoughts on working for LinkedIn?
Considering an opportunity in data engineering / data infrastructure. The recruiter said that the company still operates independently from Microsoft, and the Glassdoor reviews are almost all favorable. Would be a bump in pay and benefits are much better.
Wondering if anyone has insights or perspective on culture, perception of the company compared to other tech companies, etc.

Did anyone else start a career in PA later in life? I went back to school for a post bacc and started this year as an A1. I was a small business owner throughout my 30s and decided I needed a change, financial security and benefits for my family. I just turned 40 in August and have two young children. Most of the time I’ve felt fine, but there are moments where I just feel so much older than my colleagues. I’d love to hear from others. Thanks!

Hey All! Looking for gift ideas for my daughters daycare team. Teacher appreciation day is May 4th. I don’t think daycare workers typically receive gifts but these two woman have gone above and beyond the call of duty and I’m looking for an excuse to show how much they mean to our family.
