Hello 🐠! Need advice: my mother’s bank says her taxes cleared. The check for the amount she owes was processed. We just received a note that the taxes were not paid. She used an accountant because it was her first time filing (my dad would do the taxes). Anyone been in this situation before?
Tell us how long you've been a teacher without saying how long you've been a teacher. Ex: Overhead projectors were like gold 😂.
My brother and sister in law never, NEVER host my mother in law for holidays because they always go to her parents’, and the families don’t have a great relationship. My MIL is a pill, so it’s quite obnoxious that my husband and I always have to be the good kids who host her family holidays. Would you bring this up with the brother and SIL?
Off on maternity leave and l will just go ahead and admit this... it is SO much harder than being at work. I am guilty of wrongfully judging stay at home moms, don’t know how they do this full time.
This is for the old timers. Is teaching now harder than when you started? With experience jobs are supposed to become easier. However, I started teaching when we still used chalkboards and attendance was hung by my door. I feel all these advancements that have supposedly made life easier has made our jobs harder.
I have a student who did nothing the whole term, but passed the final exam with a 79. Should I pass him?
My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?
How do you deal with the guilt from income inequality? Me making $150k vs a Partner making $1M is a steep difference, but what feels more painful is me vs someone making $30k and supporting a family. I almost cried today listening to the janitor in my building talk to me about how he’s trying to send his kid to school 😭
Hey moms, I’m 33weeks pregnant, just entering 34 and way too excited to meet my little one. I’ve nested the crap out of the past few weeks and feel like I’ve gotten everything I need, put everything away, set up the nursery, (includes watching all YouTube nesting videos there ever were) etc etc. I’m out of things to do and work is slow-hence bored out of my mind. Any tips or recommendations on how I can kill the last month or so?
To all expecting mamas at Deloitte, I just found out about this and hole it helps someone else too. The Bright Beginnings maternity support program is a perk we get that was buried deep in DNet. I found it thanks to another post on here. If anyone else needs it,you just call 18443867354 to enroll and it takes 5 minutes. If you enroll in your first or second trimester, you get $200 Vantage Circle E gift voucher. This is the same portal that deloitte uses now for applause awards. 😊
The youngest baby boomers are either 54 or 55. In about 5 years all of them will be out. Does feel like there would be a dramatic change in our culture at the big four/Consulting and fortune 500?
How do people feel about The Mahjong Line controversy that happened in January? Just found out my kid’s school is doing a fundraiser auction and one of the items up for bid is one of their sets. Should I say something?
Pretty shocking when you see all of these parental policies in one place. Everything from 6 months to only a few weeks. Our industry has a lot of progress to make! https://www.campaignlive.com/article/best-worst-us-agency-parental-leave-policies-revealed/1579433
Been seeing so many posts on generations- i mean millennials eat avocados coz thats all they can afford, GenXers have disappointed both pessimists and optimists, Baby boomers fucked it up for everyone
My father is visiting us for 6 months. He takes insulin injections daily . Anyone know good way to get insulin injections to us they need constant refrigeration, or if he can buy them in US.
My mother-in-law is in US with green card and has been in India past 5 months. She is coming back next week but has medical needs that would require her to stay longer (overall more than 9+ months).
Did you move into an internal role after having a baby? Do you think it still makes sense during wfh/covid situation?
Ladies ... I’m expecting and I am trying to put a baby registry together ... which isn’t easy considering everything is still closed. Can you please help with must haves. Thank you so much.
Kind of panicking with the insane valuations in the stock market and considering liquidating brokerage account (not 401k) to invest in real estate (e.g. buying a house or condo). In midwest. Could live there or rent it out. Good idea? Bad idea? House vs condo?

Curious to hear this bowl’s thoughts on top 3 schools in the northeast (not willing to move anywhere else) if my post-MBA goal is BCG, Bain, or impact investing.
So I've had multiple interviews at a NY agency for an account role. Spoken with the President but felt I didn't do as well as I could. Maybe a bit long winded in parts of my response. The whole vid..
Does anyone else struggle to define how ambitious they want to be? I feel like I’ve always pushed to be the best and achieve the next milestone, and I think if I tried I could become a partner or executive or what have you (I’m a manager now). But I’m also tempted to switch over to a less stressful, internal job (for the same pay, just less steep comp growth) and just be comfortable and enjoy life (contd)
Went through 11 different companies’ interview processes before landing a job out of consulting. I thought it was going to be easier, but what I realized is a lot of companies place more emphasis on..
Moving: My SO and I love Chicago but hate the winter, lack of access to beautiful outdoor scenery, and the taxes. No kids yet and don't want to have "what if" regrets later. What's a good city to move to? Things we love about Chicago: amazing food, music scene, comedy, diversity, plenty of interesting things to do, ok COL compared to other big cities. We're considering Austin, Denver, Portland but having a hard time narrowing down / also open to other places. Thoughts?

Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
