Let’s start a conversation around parental leave - how is it at your firm? Does your firm do enough to support new parents? What changes can we make in our industry to better support working parents? Share your stories and thoughts!
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.
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
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
So far I’ve been through 1 IVF cycle. I have one embryo that is frozen waiting for transfer. My doctor is wanting me to do another round of IVF to back eggs for baby number two down the road. Has anyone been through this? I know of two people around my age that got pregnant naturally with their second baby after IVF. Does anyone know about banking embryos for future use instead of transferring? My insurance doesn’t cover anything so all this of out of pocket.
Chem classroom social media. Do you use it? I have recently started and had a lot of success this year in terms of student and parent engagement. Please feel free to follow @johnstonchemistry on IG
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...
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 am currently interviewing for one of the FAANG companies. If this works out, I will be 6-7 months pregnant by the time I actually join them. Should I disclose this while I interview? Or should I disclose after accepting the offer?
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
Do your parent know what you make?
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
Very niche but freelance moms in the UK - is there a way to get (federal) maternity leave benefits?
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?
How long did you try to conceive before going to a fertility specialist? I’m 33 and have a child.
Is losing a parent supposed to hurt this much? Doesn't feel natural. Depressing is not the word, it's worse. 😞
How long after having your first baby did you get back to having intimacy with your partner. Its been 4 months and we tried few times but it still hurts. Is it nornal?
Did kick counting drive anyone else crazy?? 30 weeks and just had to eat sugar, drink a cold drink , and do jumping jacks in an attempt to get some kicks. This is going to drive me crazy but not sure if I should be concerned if baby is having a lazy day

If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
I work in a small office (10 people, not with Mazars) and there is talk requiring everyone to be Covid vaccinated in order to return to the office, i.e. to continue working at this firm. Thoughts?

When folks provide total compensation numbers....does that include just base + bonus or base + bonus + pension + 401k match
Shared this in a comment thread on another post and want to get thoughts — I’m at 9 interviews for an M role at a startup (close to unicorn). The final loops were early this week and the recruiter reached out today to schedule one final interview focused on skills not in the job description. Should I just pull the plug?

Was up for a stretch role of a manager role as a senior analyst (almost cl9 promotion) but delivery lead says he doesn’t want to put me in the role as the client counterpart is male and I am female and he said due to the travel requirements it wouldn’t work…. Kinda mad if gender is the only thing holding me back from this role. Should I say something

In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.
What is your max class size for the year? Is that number based on a virtual or in person classroom?
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
Any tips to help prepare for an interview? I submitted my resume online, should I bring in a hard copy as well?
What do you all do once you hit hours and want to coast (or just not work at all) for the rest of the year? I recently took vacation so feel weird taking another back to back, and my existing matters are still busy. Should I just do it? Could probably take 3 weeks completely off and still hit hours.
