Any good books on how to be liked or get along with others? Looking back in my career, I’ve always had friction my manager and disliked by more than one coworker. It very may well be me and I want to change. I think I have issues with authority and grew up as an only child, if that’s relevant. 30’s F
My bipolar father has ruined our whole family's lives. He won't take his medicine, keeps having episodes, and only cares about himself. I only feel hatred when I am around him or see his face. He has made us miserable. I don't know how to deal anymore. He doesn't even know me anymore, he doesn't know any of us, but will put up an act in front of the world. I don't know what having a dad looks like. Apologies for the vent.
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant. We will have health insurance with my new employer but my wife found some article suggesting we may not get pregnancy coverage under new insurance because they will recognize it as a preexisting condition. Can anyone assuage my concern and let me know if there’s any validity to this? Are we screwed..
Impulsively jumped firms for better projects. I want to get pregnant & settle down. Worried I sabotaged ops to transfer internally so soon or fear need to get local gig & how my resume looks. 😬
Hi ladies - I’m 29, my husband & I are planning to start TTC in a few months. I’ve been diagnosed by pcos when I was 17 and I’ve been on birth control ever since due to irregular periods. I’m nervous that it’ll be difficult to conceive without hormones/meds but I have no clue. Wondering if anyone’s had a similar situation or has an insights on getting pregnant with irregular periods or pcos? How long in advance did you quit birth control?
I don’t like dogs. Don’t find them cute, they smell horrible, and how do people let them lick their faces?! Ewww
Last night I was looking through pictures on my phone. I was such a happy kid and young adult and even after joining the firm I’m at I was happy for 2ish years…..the past 4 have been awful and depressing though. Man I wish I could go back to that time and do things over.
Ladies how do you keep your sex life from not dying when you have a newborn? We had sex maybe twice the entire course of my pregnancy (at the beginning, I bled a little after sex so the doctor asked us to cool ourselves a bit lol) and with our baby here we hardly have the time or mood to do it. We have our baby in our room (and will probably have him until he’s a year old) and I don’t feel like doing it when the baby’s beside us. Looking to hear what you ladies have done to keep it alive!!!
Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/
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?
FTM looking for advice on baby monitor. I don't mind spending more and eyeing on the Nanit for its breathing detection. Any one used that? Any feedback? Open to hear about other options that can help reduce SIDS (FTM freaking out about that). I don't want the Owelet cause it an electronic that touches the baby. TIA!!!
Did anyone's brains just stop working while pregnant? I'm 13 weeks and can only manage to work half days. I'll sit at my computer for 12 hours and bill only 3-4 hours instead of my standard 8-10. I have work to do, but zero motivation or availability to focus unless there's a looming deadline. Does this phase pass? Did this happen to anyone else?

Would u give up ur beloved pet to move in w ur SO? My bf has a viscous, possessive cat that only is nice to him. That cat attacks, bites, & scratches w an aggression that is clearly designed to maim, not play. I dn’t feel like I can ask him to shelter the cat bc the thing would surely be put down. None of his friends or fam want to adopt it & get attacked by the little beast for the nxt 15 yrs. Plus if we don’t work out., he’s without his baby for no reason. I want a life w him bt idk what to do

Had a discussion with my father that he believes relationships are only out of convenience; over time no one actually wants to be married. Example: someone to cook for you, clean while you’re busy working, etc. Women, do you feel this as well? What is convenient for you?

Decided to take a leap and leave full time agency life to be a freelancer and/or part timer. I’ve never worked as a freelancer before so wondering how folks have negotiated their rate, hourly vs day rate? For reference, I’m in the Account Management space and have 8+ years of experience. Thanks!

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
Partners - a candidate has made it to the final round with you. What do you notice and what sets apart a great candidate? More of a poll than a “here’s how to ace an interview."
Deloitte is the only company of the big 4 to have a true management consulting shop. The others have advisory shops that they call consulting to be Kool. #BigD
