Potentially relocating from East Coast to LA for spouse job change... 3 yrs into a house and have a kid in daycare. I’m on two regional projects where I drive instead of flying. How crazy is it
Need advice. My mom has graciously offered to be full-time grandma daycare as I return to work. The problem is we have wildly different parenting styles and I really really want her to do it my way for a couple of the really important ones like nap schedules and feeding schedules. She flat out is ignoring me and we had a huge blowout fight where she pretty much said she didn't want to do this anymore. What should I do? Find a nanny that would do it my way? Or give in to my mom?
What’s the word on company holiday parties? My agency is planning one - in person, 100+ people, indoor location in Dec, no mask requirement, want people to travel in for it if they live outside our HQ city, etc. It’s like they forgot about Covid but I’m wondering if others are doing the same.
Growing up, my father made me dress very conservative and I ended up looking very tomboyish - (he would buy me men’s basketball shorts, wasn’t allowed anything shorter). Over the years, I struggle to dress “feminine” now and many guys have told me they thought I was bi or lesbian. I am trying hard to dress “feminine” but I gravitate to more “masculine” and baggy clothing. I’m so frustrated that this is the signal I give off to men.
Has anyone quit to take time off, just to have a break? How did you decide you were comfortable enough financially to do it and what was it like later coming back into the job market? I need to leave pwc. But I would love extended time off just to breathe and rediscover my self
Does Deloitte pay out vacation when you leave?

Are IVF babies at a higher risk of cancer or genetic defects than NC ones? Read some studies but they were conflicting & inconclusive. Clocking 36 with failed IUI attempts & wondering if switching to IVF makes sense. Was pregnant last yr with IUI but miscarried at 15W

As a new grad who has been at a company for just a couple months, how free should I be about using my benefits - taking time off etc?
My friends are expecting a child together and they live far away. Normally, I'd cook for them but that's obviously not an option. I want to buy them a gift card from a restaurant in their neighborhood. I found a few that has online gif car option, but now I'm doubting what if they don't like the food of the restaurant I choose. I wanted it to be a surprise but maybe it's better to ask? What do you think?
Maybe I'm missing something. Couldn't you schedule pto on your calendar and then just charge admin when you do time?
Resume gap after MBB. I want to take time off to spend with family and relax - more than is my allotted “search time”.
Will this be seen as a red flag when I search again later?
For anyone debating whether to go in house, I recently went in house, and the mental health benefit of not having to worry about billable hours is completely worth the switch. It's great not having to worry about catching up on hours when I'm out for a doctor's appointment, vacation, etc. It's more of a mental health relief than I guessed it would be.
About to leave for b school, shooting for a solid mediocre rating this project. Feels good to give no fucks 😇
I'm going to admit. Posts by McK folks are often the most interesting and insightful. Don't know if it's the name effect, but there is a lot I take away from them
Debating if I should take an opportunity at a start-up tech firm and leave Deloitte. Role is still client facing, consulting services. Sounds better quality projects, 40% raise, bonus and equity.
For moms who travel and have spouse working full time, what do you do for child care while you're on the road? I don't think hubby can manage by himself Mon thru Thurs, so I'm evaluating au pairs and live-in nannies. Would appreciate any insights and suggestions on what to consider as we make a decision
