Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
At EY , do you have to be there for a year before you can take the 16 weeks of parental leave or is it an immediate benefit?
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Gave up my business class seat for a kid who was looking at me, as she boarded, and the drink I was offered, her mom said - she always thought it was cool why people got bigger seats to sit. She is 3!
How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?
Has anyone used bright horizon’s back up child care? I’m currently juggling my two little ones (almost 1 and 3) because grandma had a procedure that sidelined her for a few weeks. We’ve never done care centers or outside help - so naturally I’m apprehensive, but with busy season ending, these final few weeks are proving to be too much. I can do in home or a center- but my nerves are holding me back, esp for my almost 1 year old.
Parents, what are you doing for college funds? I want to start saving for my kid and don't know where to start. Do you recommend a bank over the others for this matter?
If you start a career at a new company and are pregnant, do you get maternity leave? I know some companies say you have to work at the company for a year
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?
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!
Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
Any parent willing to share experience and journey for a mild Autism child over the years. When you noticed, how it progressed, what helped the most etc. 3yr son is diagnosed with mild Autism and I feel he is getting better in some areas but worse with stimming and zoning out. I know evey child is different but a worried parent trying to decipher what future holds. Thanks!
Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals. I am currently looking at this one on Macys. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/crux-6.3-quart-digital-touchscreen-electric-air-fryer-created-for-macys?ID=11304871&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_SH_PLA_Cookware-_-GS_Cookware_PLA_Crux-_-293719126716-_-pg1050674350_m_kclickid__kenshoo_clickid__KID_EMPTY_1546922786_61770717587_293719126716_aud-37409341359
Did he ask Mother before doing this?
Is anyone feeling the disrespect of students in a classroom? The attitude towards adults when a student is interacting with the said adult. Wow! The mother in me just wants to wash the child’s mouth out for such disrespect, BUT definitely NOT allowed in school. How have kids gotten this far w/o any reprimand for their behavior? What are we teaching them if we keep ignoring….
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
I'm 20 years old. New to consulting. Been rejected by 2 Clients and I think it's because I look like a kid with a baby face. Any advice on this? Not sure what to do and feel discouraged
I started a new job a month ago and I think I've made a huge mistake. I wanted work life balance, went to a well-known company that has a reputation for it, and have quickly learned that this will be quite the opposite. I am beginning to panic. How do I deal with applying for jobs, specifically the issue of "erasing" this job from my work history without getting in trouble? I feel weird stating that my last job is my "present" one but is there any other option?

Let’s say you sell a 3yr long project in September. Do you put the 3yr project in the CRM or break it down? Breaking down is complicated, but full deal close ruins reporting. Firm can’t decide.

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.

Anyone left consulting for tech startups? I have an offer in a tech startup as a Customer Success Manager, and on a high level I get that it's about upselling/growing customer accounts. Does anyone have an idea of the specifics of the role though, or what I should do to make sure I do well? I'll be their first Customer Success Manager so they don't have the clearest of visions for the role too, besides "we envision you being our customers' trusted advisor" 🙃
