Struggling with my husband about his pot smoking. Long story short, he's always been a pot smoker (not during the business hours, but before and after work). Before we had the baby, Ive made it very clear that I dont want him smoking weed so frequently. I understand wanting to unwind before dinner/bed time, but I believe smoking several times a day is unhealthy. We have a 2 months old baby now, and during his paternity leave, he smoked several times a day and napped w. Baby. Continued-
What is the culture and work/life balance at Havas Chicago like? Seeing mixed reviews on Glassdoor.
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Finally get to ORD....6 hours late and there is no gate for us...sitting on the Tarmac 😳😩😑
I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?
Happy Monday - what's going to be the highlight of your week? For me, it will be my firm's holiday party.

I was wondering whether any US green card holders accepted into M7 programs ever get some amount of tuition reimbursement/funding/scholarships from these schools or are they treated like international students that are expected to pay full tuition. Also, how common does is it?

What are some of your favorite Breastfeeding friendly work clothes?? Trying to balance warmth for winter and functionality...style too but given covid wfh am less concerned with looking super nice.
Vaguely interested in the concept of a facial, but I’m sure I’d never make it a regular thing. Is it worth doing if it’s something you’d likely only do like once or twice a year? E.g., are there still benefits if that infrequent?
What have people found to be the best life organization tools - organizing and consolidating to-do lists and calendars across life and work?
Clear is killing me at JFK. They are not only walking people to the front of pre✅, but the front of the line past security(before the metal detector) too. Then these noobs don't know how pre✅ works😭
Any tips for negotiating your severance for a non-partner role? Many good years at the firm—it’s just not working out of late and both me and my firm are looking to part ways.
In July I missed my promo to SM. A woman has been preferred even if she was underqualified (my MD's words), as at Accenture we have quotas for women. I'm interviewing with Deloitte, they told me I'll help building the practice. In the meantime I was assured by my MD that in December I'll get the promo. I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?
Have a $1k allowance for home office setup. Any suggestions for what to get? I think I have everything I need but don't want this to go to waste, only stipulation is that a purchase has to "make me more productive"
