How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
4 year old in my kid’s daycare got COVID and parents said it was pretty bad. A reminder to stay vigilant parents with kids too young to get vaccinated!
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...
I drink moderately but lately have noticed a lot of the other moms drink a lot more. I don’t know enough to know if it is a problem or not for them but is it typical that all the adults are drunk at kids’ birthday parties?
Planning on taking 2+ months shared parental leave. Can’t wait to have that length of time with my family, but also pushing for promotion at the same time. Any advice on how to play it/communicate it?
Maybe staying at home this long has made me more critical, but I’m struggling to maintain any suspension of disbelief with ads and tv shows. Case in point: the MB ad where the kid snuggles the dirty, grime & bug ridden toy off the front of a truck - seriously!? And don’t get me started on ‘Your Honor’ - WTF, do they not have fingerprinting in the NOPD???!! Case closed.
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
What strategies do you adopt to maximize praying (and ibaadah in general) during Ramadan when on a case? Any tips?
Happy Father’s Day out there. You Padres are killing it with your selfless dedication with your sacrifices to your families. Challenge yourselves to spend time more time with your kids. That’s the biggest regret I hear....to all the fathers that screwed it up get your $h!t together and be the father you always wanted. Cheers!!!
Props to American citizens making it clear that intentional child abuse is not an appropriate deterrent for illegal immigration. Huah! Go America 🇺🇸. Make Trump 🏳️ again!
What are some good memoirs by men who were never loved by their father? I gotta get into the mind of our client.
Any ideas for healthy family meals that a (relatively) picky child will eat and that are also easy/quick to prepare? I need inspiration; I want to quit my bad habit of swinging through a drive-thru on my way from from work.
Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!
South Florida (Broward or Miami Dade) what's your favorite tax firm with normal work conditions for a single mother with 2 kids that needs WLB. 9-5 is ideal but I can work things out. Or other accounting suggestions for someone with a masters in Tax and 3 CPA exams out of the way.
My neighbor has parked two kid motorcycles in his spot (pic for reference). When he parks his two massive SUVs in the (2-car) spot, it’s very difficult to park my reasonably-sized car. Should I call him directly? The condo manager? I’m afraid they’ll key my car.
Most awkward Uber stories? My uber driver showed me a picture of her baby. Um, it was a doll.
Has anyone starting trying to get pregnant after starting at a new firm or did you wait at least a year ?
Anyone with experience hiring a maid-cook who lives in-house. I just went through a divorce and will need an extra hand with my kid - preparing for the new single life. All advice is welcomed
Here's an antivaxxer story for you... My brother called my mom in a panic asking for a scan of photo of my dad's vaccine card - brother has the same name as my father. Apparently my brother is out with his bosses in NYC and they're all vaxxed and Mr. alt-right was going to be denied entry to a restaurant for an important business dinner. He got lucky but seriously, just get the vaccine already!!! (He's had COVID and recovered which is pushing him further info kuckoo antivaxxer territory 🙄) 🦠🦠
Moms, taking our 4 month old to the beach for the first time. Any must haves to make it comfortable for the baby and us? A chair? Umbrella? Thank you
What’s the rental market like these days? Has the price on 1/1+den places downtown dropped?
Anyone have a test bank for the Azure 900 cert or have any recommendations on how to pass it asap. Also looking into AWS cloud practitioner
is there anything you can do to a previous supervisor who screwed you over due to discrimination ? Reported her to HR but not enough to get her fired.
I am 24 years old and the advice I have been given is to max out my IRA and 401k before investing into a taxable brokerage account. If I do not plan on working until I am 59 1/2, is this sound advice since there is a 10% penalty of early withdrawals for both accounts?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
How are the exits from Big 4 to SAP consulting? Specifically for those that did SAP implementations at big 4. Looking in terms of pay, WLB, and travel specifically. Any other thoughts welcomed.
Amex Platinum Users - How does “no preset spending limit” get reported to the credit bureaus? Just got approved and 6 months ago my credit was around 580 so this is a huge achievement for me, but I’m also obsessed with maintaining my credit score now. Google has not been helpful; too many answers are no answer. Thank you!
I was on the bench for about two months for AFS (prj complications / clearance) where I ended up just taking a project that seemed to align with something I wanted. I've been here for about 3 weeks...
Working on my couch in PJs. Work feels like a big ol’ slumber party with PowerPoint and Zoom. I think I’m adapting quite well to the new normal.
Anyone can share insights about the Diversity Rotational Program at FTI consulting? Recruiter reached out and I’m curious to see what are the type of projects, culture and growth opportunities. Thanks so much 🙏
How much work is a manager supposed to do if they’re allocated 50% on the project? I feel like I’m doing their job and mine.
There's working late when you're trying to solve a problem or come up with a solution to something. And then there's working late when you're basically playing a game of "who's on first" trying to navigate a whole group of people through a very simple, straightforward one person task that should have taken 10 minutes, over the course of 4 hours through a maze of union rules, database permissions and client bureaucracy.
American Airlines:”Ladies and gentlemen we will not be serving snacks or drinks on this flight . You may also not get up to use the bathroom. We take covid very seriously!” Also American Airlines:”ladies and gentlemen we have a full flight today! 😄”
Hello EY 🐠! Anyone kind enough to share what kind of questions you were asked by the interviewer when at interview? Specially for core tax, manager position. Wonder if it’s gonna be behavior question, technical, or mostly casual talk, etc? TIA.
Is it appropriate to ask/have 3-4wks to decide on a job offer? Firm I'm interviewing w/ says their timeline for extending offer will be early Nov, but promo decisions for ACN are around thanksgiving..
Vaguely interested in the concept of a facial, but I’m sure I’d never make it a regular thing. Is it worth doing if it’s something you’d likely only do like once or twice a year? E.g., are there still benefits if that infrequent?
What am I worth in terms of TC? SDE, 6 YOE, background at a startup and 2 mid-level companies, MS degree. Assuming I'm desirable enough for interviews at a handful of good places. Not based on a previous salary, just objectively.
CISSP CPE question: Does anyone know if a Udemy AWS cloud practitioner certification course can be leveraged for Group A CPE credits on ISC2? Udemy provides a certificate with hour totals, but I didn’t know if ISC2 frowns upon these courses.
