Considering an exit opportunity at a higher level + much higher salary with comparable benefits to Deloitte in everything except parental leave which is 8 weeks followed by short term disability.
About sixth months post partum and I am so unbelievably tired all the time. Baby sleeps through the night yet somehow I am exhausted to the point of lying in bed all weekend while...
As a Senior, what level of staffing issues do you think is the line between being a baby or there may be a staffing shortage
Looking for book suggestions. Want to get my father a few books. I know he really enjoyed the Century Trilogy and Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett - which are both historical fiction. I would be grateful if anyone has ideas for similar books.
Had a spontaneous spring clean tonight -- it felt great and makes me want to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle.
I'm such a baby. I say I hate hate PA. Then I chicken out if recruiters call me. I must secretly love this shit. I think I have issues...
Any real advice for staying in consulting working 60-70 hrs a week when you have a newborn + a partner who also has a demanding job? Is the only option really to outsource raising your kid? Advice from experience much appreciated
30 min emom C&J s baby.
Do you remember when you were growing up and the neighbor kid pissed you off, so you destroyed your sister's room. Then your parents said it was OK, because you were angry? Me neither. Stupid looters
FTM here and my baby will start daycare soon. Daycare asked us to prepare all the bottles on a daily basis. Between all the bottles and my pumping parts, it sounds like an absolute nightmare in terms of cleaning. Is there an easier way to do this besides running the dishwasher daily?
Thoughts on people who start slacking off during pregnancy? My manager is pregnant, and I want to be accommodating, but she hardly works and it’s making it very hard to do my job.
Moms, do you have recommendations for formula? My baby is 5 and half months old, and I want to supplement with formula, just a few ounces every day. She had some Similac and enfamil samples, and don’t have any negative reaction with either.
Mom is sick in India, unfortunately we are counting days. Can my US born daughter visit her, then can I request for my wife’s H4 visa stamping with a reason of assisting US citizen (child) to travel back? My wife doesn’t have valid visa so she’s unable to come down and see my mom. I’m finding ways to get her a Dropbox appointment.
There is a huge push for our district to install audio and visual cameras to the classrooms. What do you all think?
Most awkward Uber stories? My uber driver showed me a picture of her baby. Um, it was a doll.
Everyday is Mother’s Day 🥰
Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
Starting at Deloitte soon. Expecting a kid in June.. would I be eligible to take paternity leave even though I haven’t been employed for 12 months? Thanks!!
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

I’m interested in learning more about biopharma/biotech equity research as an exit. I’m a life science PhD person. Anyone up for a quick chat?
Switching consulting agencies atm. Currently I earn way below average at 42k€/p.a + car. Next week I am negotiating with another company wanting to employ me. I am actually bringing in a customer with a fixed 2 year project @ 1000€ all-in/day rate (5 billable days/week). What salary should I aim for - and what bonuses? I would love something around the market average of 65-75k is it realistic even though I am in my mid 20s?
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
Friend of mine has been sick for a while. Y'all have recommendations for soups that are easy to cook and digest?
I am not approved for financing the car due to immigration status and limited credit history. Leasing (1.99% - 2 years) and cash are feasible options. I really want to own the car so should I buy it off in cash or lease to build credit history?

Any ideas on how well flatiron health pays? Looking at their manager in product operation and product marketing roles and wasn't sure. Not too much info online and Glassdoor might be old
