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...
As a Senior, what level of staffing issues do you think is the line between being a baby or there may be a staffing shortage
Who else is flummoxed at KPMG being in top 100 mother-friendly firm?? This recognition has annoyed me every single of the last 3 years that I’ve been a mom.
One friend announces an engagement, another announces a baby, and I'm sitting here on a Friday night baking cookies and coloring. Making thirty look shitty.
Have you used chatbooks for photoooks, is it good? I want to make a photobook for my baby’s first birthday, but need a solution that’s quick and easy using the photos on my phone. Any other recommendations?
Had a spontaneous spring clean tonight -- it felt great and makes me want to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle.
Looking for book suggestions. Want to get my father a few books. I know he really enjoyed the Century Trilogy and Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett - which are both historical fiction. I would be grateful if anyone has ideas for similar books.
Do you remember when you were growing up and the neighbor kid pissed you off, so you destroyed your sister's room. Then your parents said it was OK, because you were angry? Me neither. Stupid looters
Starting at Deloitte soon. Expecting a kid in June.. would I be eligible to take paternity leave even though I haven’t been employed for 12 months? Thanks!!
About sixth months post partum and I am so unbelievably tired all the time. Baby sleeps through the night yet somehow I am exhausted to the point of lying in bed all weekend while...
Moms, do you have recommendations for formula? My baby is 5 and half months old, and I want to supplement with formula, just a few ounces every day. She had some Similac and enfamil samples, and don’t have any negative reaction with either.
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.
Any real advice for staying in consulting working 60-70 hrs a week when you have a newborn + a partner who also has a demanding job? Is the only option really to outsource raising your kid? Advice from experience much appreciated
Everyday is Mother’s Day 🥰
8 o'clock meeting in the client site, caught an early flight and planned to get some sleep on the flight. The fucking baby next to me started crying his lungs out. FML.
Who is on the Child Study team. I was told to contact them, but I am not sure what they do or who they are?
I have a child who has been identified as a selective mute. Anyone have experience with this?
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
First time mom here - does time taken for maternity leave (non extended) count toward total years of experience? How does it (or does it?) show up on background checks?
I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
Has anyone started utilizing therapy to make sure that you’re in the happiest/most useful mindset in this demanding job? Do most firm’s insurance cover and will the firm know (worried about stigma)?
About to start traveling A LOT. Do people recommend southwest or United? Flying out of Chicago and equidistant to midway and ORD.
Going to be ~5 nights short to maintain Marriott/SPG platinum status. Any options? Already have the Amex card. Thanks!
How much travelling do you think consulting will be post covid19? More remote or back to normal
What’s culture and WLB like in Google Strategy and Ops? I see most are former MBB, and I’m curious if they continue to carry the expectation of long hours and availability after-hours.
Holding offer from acn CDO, decent salary but they mentioned they are lax on firing people if they aren't ready for promo. That's another way to say they don't promote as easily? Not sure what to do
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)
Liberty Mutual Corp Strategy and Research, insights to career progression, salary, prestige vs Big 4 consulting? I don’t want to stay in Boston, not sure if the opp makes it worth staying
Has anyone here committed to a partner who has significant debt? My partner of over a year has >$300K in debt from med school. She has since quit medicine, due to a toxic culture that sounds worse than biglaw. In the last year she started earning enough to refinance her loans into a 10-year horizon. I am fortunate to be debt free and am saving aggressively with the aim of making a down payment on a NYC apartment in the next 5 years. We would like to get married before owning property (cont)
Republicans just dropped new H1b visa legislation increasing enforcement and changing wage requirements. anyone have details? I just skimmed the headline
How to justify your salary expectations?
Incompetent senior is up for promotion this year and is mostly likely gonna get promoted cuz she knows how to kiss asses. A couple people on her projects already quit and no associates want to (con’t)
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
How to deal with failure on a project:
Just learned a tough lesson. The difference between a good idea and bad one is who says it.
Thinking having a 24’ HD and a 28’ 4K monitor setup. Is 4K for excel not necessary? How about 28’ monitors?
