Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the
When I was a kid one of my biggest worries about adulthood was avoiding quicksand. I'm so relieved that it worked out well. 😂😂😂
Any clue on who to reach out to over at Mother LA? *I'm not fishing for any mother puns here. See what I did there... 😴
How much notice is required before taking parental leave at BCG? Is there something required per rule or is it more just best practice to give 60/90 days notice to give folks time to plan/schedule around it?
Any kid birthday party theme ideas?
When did you start telling folks at work that you are pregnant? I am 8 weeks pregnant now. i am at a consultant level and concerned whether this will affect staffing since i don't have a deep network.
Is it a bad look to put in your notice after coming back from a maternity leave? Would it burn bridges or not a big deal?
Help - my mother got the covid vax and now she has a ton of joint pain and her docs arent helpful. What do I do! Second pfizer dose about 2 months ago and she has lupus - its not the pain that comes when you first get your shot this has stayed for the two months now
FTM of a 10 mo. At what age do you start having baby sitters for date nights and such. No family or friends can help. I am paranoid that my baby will just cry out of strangeness the whole time.
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.
Ik it’s good practice not to put client names in resume, but what about their parent company or venture backer if they’re a portfolio company (like “flagship portco”)

Anyone else experience more challenges with setting boundaries for WLB when your lead is also a mother? I’ve had no issues with setting boundaries with past partners /leads (all males /dads) and have them respect it. It feels harder to ask since she understands the stress too.
Has anyone heard of the Natalist? I found their Parent Plans book but the only reviews are directly on their site. Alternatively, are there any recommendations for books my husband and I can read to begin preparing to have a child? I can’t just get pregnant and figure it out, I need to try to go in informed (understanding that there’s no way to truly prepare). Expecting Better and Crib Sheets have very polar reviews and don’t quite fit the bill for me. TIA!
With 16 weeks parental leave at EY, 1yr no travel after after maternity for ACN, and all the distractions of workers with children, firms should show some love to the yeoman single or childless people
Has anyone here worked with a team of remote engineers in Eastern Europe? Anything I should be aware of in terms of cultural differences or behavioral norms? I’m US-based
If I am now a resident of other state but my office is based in nyc, how will I be taxed?Also Since we have been doing remote work is the income now earned in nyc or in the new state?
Does anyone know if and how we can opt for reduced work hours/pay? Lot of companies are asking for employees to either take 80% pay and work. Given we are on H1B can we work full time less than 40hrs?
TIL - always take PTO on a holiday week if you don't have a project. So over this high-burn PRD shit.
I have some interviews for product management roles at some Series C/D companies. I have a feeling I'll get at least one offer. Totally new to the start up game but given that these are both well onto the road to IPO (according to them) can I have them give me a breakdown of equity, strike price, outstanding shares etc? One is a PMM role too. 31, female in Boston if location maters at all when considering any of the above.
When do you bring up salary discussions in the interview process? First round? Second round? I’m curious to know everyone’s opinions.
I was just promoted to Senior but have already been in a Senior role on my project and my responsibilities are not changing - how would i show this promotion on my resume?
Does anyone remember the “nudge” on MSN that used to shake up the screen? Wish we could do the same with Slack or emails 😂
God I'm tired of hearing about antibody testing as a means for primary diagnosis of COVID

How critical is upward feedback at BCG? Is it primarily to let managers know how their teams view them, or is it a critical component in evals- promotion and bonus decisions etc? Do people get transitioned out for poor upward feedback?
