I’m in need of a good briefcase brand. Right now I literally carry around a book bag, and I need to step up my fashion game before I go back into the office. I had a baby 2 weeks into lockdown, so any suggestions on clothing brands would be great, too.
How have you been able to manage having a kid and wanting to succeed in your careers, be promoted, or change jobs? Does anyone travel with their kids (for fun not work)? I am worried that having kids means having to give up career goals/ personal goals?
Yesterday I (27M) had an argument with my mother (59) over laundry and I said she was stupid, to which she replied “no you are”. I guess I’m officially a teenager again.
My mother was approved for her green card, and she will come to the US later this month. She won't get her physical green card for some time but we have a close family wedding in Canada next month. Do you know if it is still possible to travel if she has the immigrant visa stamp in her passport?
Colds + Daycare. Does it ever end? My kid is 8mo and I can’t say he’s ever not been snotting or coughing in my face.
Also, how do you help them sleep at night with all the congestion?
Campaign magazine did a round up of agency maternity leaves... just going to put this right here.
Pregnancy is better in other countries than the USA.
Is it true that in Croatia women can submit a doctor's note and stop working after the first trimester? Or that they have up to a week in the hospital when they deliver?
Japan already has Mother's hospitals for a month of post-partum care. In the USA we discharge you in 2 days.
What other countries have great benefits that we should adopt?
My 5 yo figured out how to open the baby gate to get access to the kitchen. It's like the Velociraptor figuring how to open doors in Jurassic Park. 😧
Does anyone have a nanny who brings their own child along either daily or fairly regularly? Do you pay a reduced rate if they have their child along? I’m not referring to situations like nanny is in a pinch and brings their own child along a few days here and there. I’ve seen nanny postings where they have a different rate w/ versus w/o bringing their children along but it’s varied wildly and I’m not sure how to calculate. Also, what has /has not worked well?
Why is our digital culture (salesforce) disgusting? SM and Ms forcing people to pick up food. Is this jimmy Johns? How do I respectfully say - I’m not you’re mother.
Planning to leave the firm in 2 weeks, but don’t find out whether I’m pregnant for another 5-7 days. Can I just tell project 2 weeks notice but not formally submit documents until post testing/1 week?
Fresh analyst joins the project. Attempts to school the team on how to do Vegas right. Im just too tired to give a shit on Monday night dinner, so enjoy the spotlight kid.
Single moms - do you find it difficult to find a SO to marry once you have a child/children from another relationship?
Hi ladies! I am looking to get pregnant about a year from now. I am scheduled for genetic testing, am working out / eating healthy consistently, and just ordered prenatals (so I can start taking those proactively) and applied for life insurance. What else should I be doing in the year leading up to pregnancy to get ready for my first child? Thank you for your help!
2012 accord, 53k miles or new vehicle? Currently have a 2nd child on the way and wife has a compact suv so I was looking around potentially. Given my daily drive is under 10 miles round trip if I am going to the office I am starting to think I don’t need a new vehicle and can get by. I have looked at cars and it looks like 50k-60k (Acura mdx) I would pay cash and money is not an issue. Pros and cons of a new vehicle. For what it is worth I love the accord, fun to drive and no issues ever.
Will be working at NYC for few years . kid is going to elementary school.. any suggestion for good communities around jersey city area ?
Going to start trying for a baby in 2021. Anyone have recommendations for ob/gyn in the city or how to find ones that are reputable / provide the best care? Not from the area and will definitely do my research but thought it was worth asking here too :)
Hi everyone, in your opinion, is it worth it? As a manager thinking of the path ahead I can’t help but think it sucks... do I really want to be a weekend parent/spouse/friend to make this work?
What is the most impactful thing a team, team member or company has done to promote your career development or WLB? Specifically interested while you were pregnant / had young kids.
