Always wanted to adopt a puppy and this time seems perfect as I can be home all day for months to give the puppy the attention it needs in its initial months. I can’t decide on what puppy to get. Live in a hot climate area and own a big house with a decent size backyard. I am wanting to adopt either Labrador, golden retriever, Pomsky husky or a German shepherd. What would be best for a first time dog parent?

Spent 4+ years as CMO of startup company. It was an incredible learning experience but also a very difficult uphill battle trying to steer the owners and the company in the right direction. I’ve just exited the company as of 11/18. The owners expected to storm the marketplace and emerge as a number one brand at only 6 years old without putting in the work.Company had a very hard time understanding the concept of a unique value proposition. Hoping to find a new remote (full time) position ASAP

Unless someone did what this kid did (learning to walk again) don’t post it on LinkedIn.
Job hunting is just…exhausting and discouraging. And every time I log onto LinkedIn and see some other company has done layoffs I’m even further discouraged knowing I’m up against these folks now, too. I took a few months off after my daughter was born and it feels like now is the worst time to be back on the job hunt. I’ve been told I’m overqualified, positions taken down bc of hiring freezes and ghosted…ugh I’m just going to hang with my baby for the week and try hit refresh.

Are there any companies hiring remote rn and willing to take a change on someone looking for a career change? I’m a senior manager in operations, but I just don’t like what I do. Honestly, the money doesn’t speak to me anymore either. I understand I probably need to take a step or two down in level, but I am willing to grind! Thank you!

M30🐠 here in financial services who repeatedly receives comments about my baby face and looking like young / high schooler etc and can't grow facial hair. It's especially limiting given peers and juniors look 5-10 yrs older than me and clients think they are senior to me.
I think an online branding / stlylist consultant could help me look more mature. Eg what frame style / color glasses, hair style, clothing.
Any recommendations or experiences?
Help me choose:
Natwest Market (formerly RBS) Gurgaon : 24 LPA
PWC AC Bengaluru : 31 LPA
Natwest is also ready to match the offer. But confused due to WFH in PWC and lead role at PWC but no such thing at Natwest.
Did Deloitte have a late-night Uber policy before the pandemic? Joining in a month and also moving and wondering how much I should consider it. For context, my current company had a policy pre-pandemic where we could Uber home every time we worked after 7PM and we could expense meals as well during those days.

Are there any large differences between a Strategy lead and Program manager positions? Looking to transition and in the process for a couple of roles. Mainly concerned about job role, longer term progression and internal mobility (will be moving countries in a few years).

Hi, I'm currently in Management consulting in KPMG India and I wish to relocate to KPMG UK. Can someone please guide me where I can apply for an opening?
Is Hyderabad always this hot? It is impossible to go outside during day time unless you have a car. Makes it very difficult to carry out basic errands if you don't have a vehicle.
I have been working with Cognizant for over 2 years now. The client that I’ve been working with recently asked me to apply for an internal position with them. I did so, however, now the client is saying that they are not planning to disclose this information to Cognizant and that I shouldn’t too.
I am sceptical about this situation. Can I be in trouble for joining the client’s company?
Why do pitch books have to be such a messy and time-consuming process? You'd think it would be far more streamlined and simple.

Is 38 too late to start looking good? It just occurred to me this week that I can finally buy stuff for myself without feeling guilty or waiting for boxing day or a big sale. I have gray hair, dark circles and bulging belly and I am finally at a place where I can do something for me...but I feel like I've lost my prime "pretty years" and is 38 looking like 68.
How does one begin to make a plan for integrating self care into life again? I feel lost.
Is it a bad idea to have a nanny for my 6 month old who exclusively speaks Spanish? Neither me nor my spouse speak a lick of Spanish. We can communicate with her via Google translate so im mostly concerned about his development
So MIL has been watching my daughter off and on during the mornings this week because she has a cold and daycare won’t take her with her cough. Super grateful she’s here, but my MIL has been wearing new perfume or some sort of scent that has my allergies acting up and I don’t know if that is also contributing to my daughter’s cold. I’m getting to the point where my eyes are watering and I’m getting stuffed up because of the smell. My husband refuses to talk to her about it.
My husband makes considerably more than me. I realize this is a good problem to have but with us both working from home with a toddler, I feel like we have 2 options (cont)
How do you handle handoff/transition before going on maternity leave? I will be going on maternity leave in 3 months and need to put together a transition plan so that someone can take care of my work while I am out. I want to make sure nothing falls through the crack but at the same time don’t want to train someone to do 100% of my job - that would make my role redundant if someone can just take over right? Plus the company is going through restructuring now too. How would you handle this?
My LO will only nurse in dangling position so she can kick her feet and wave her arms around. Help! My back and shoulders are so sore 😅
Does anyone take day dates with their spouse/partner? By the time I get to bed, even on the weekends, I’m spent. I wonder if it would be more enjoyable to spend that time together during the day. We both work incredibly hard and are successful, but honestly I’m more the YOLO type and he probably would find it ridiculous to take this time off work. Has anyone found some enjoyment/benefit to spending time with your spouse like this?
I’m a FTM returning to work in mid-August since being on maternity leave since the end of February. I can’t wait to go back to work (I have mom guilt about daycare but that’s another story). I’m going back to my project which was was very demanding/stressful so I’m having a little anxiety about returning to that specific project. I would love any tips/advice for setting boundaries and being able to balance work with parenting. I’ve already blocked off my calendar for daycare dropoff & pickups.

I Want to give praise to every working mom.It's tough but somebody has got to do it.
My 6mo baby started daycare 3 weeks ago. We raised concerns about the frequency of feedings during the day (she was going for 5 hours without getting a bottle). The teachers assured us that would not happen again. Today I noticed she’s went for 5 hours without being fed. I cried so much and I just can’t sit here and eat knowing she’s not eating. I am hesitating calling again because I don’t want to be that parent and potentially create a hostile environment for my baby. I just don’t know wtd 😭😭😭
Mamas, how much do you spend on gifts for other kids/toddlers birthday parties? We just started our 3 year old in daycare/preschool and there’s a birthday party all the time it seems. For good friends we spend around $50-$100 for their kids gifts but it’s starting to add up, especially for classmates my kid doesn’t know too well. What’s your average?
Moms of fishbowl - what is the best bottle warmer and sterilizer? I’m due in February, planning to do a combination of breast milk and formula (to ensure baby gets all his nutrients one way or another). We bought the baby brezza advanced with WiFi for formula, so more focused on a warmer + sterilizer combo thatll work for breast milk (and specifically thawing breast milk too). Seems there aren’t as many options for combo products with sanitizer, so maybe I’m asking for too much. Suggestions?
Anyone working for IQVIA ?
I'm interested in a job and looking for a referral.
How do y’all keep track of schedules? I like using outlook for work and personal (including kids) because I can color code items and mark as not busy or private and I have it up on a big screen all day. However I have 4 kids and the summer schedule is packed with summer camps and activities. It is making my work calendar look very congested. I’m fine with it from my view but (cont’d)
I have a coworker who is about to go on maternity leave. Our company is only offering her 4 weeks paid maternity leave. This is in Virginia. Curious what maternity leave/benefits other moms have received.
For moms with more than 1 child: what did you do for on call care for your oldest when you went into labor with your second child? Our family is 2-3 hours away so we are trying to gather a list of closer options until family can arrive. We will ask some friends, but feel we need a longer list of options in case someone falls through or we can’t get in touch in the middle of the night.
Curious - how old was your child when they dropped the afternoon nap? My 2.5 yo is fighting it daily now! How did you transition to quiet time?
