Open question for the Bowl! What is the best career advice you’ve ever given or received?
How does the quality of analysis and deliverables compare across firms like ClearView, LEK, Trinity, Health Advances, ZS, etc.? Are some firms better overall or does it just depend on what team you happen to be working with?
How do you feel about voice memos via text or WhatsApp? I find them so annoying...just call or text me!!
I am making my first switch and have got an offer letter. Do I need to accept the offer letter? If I get further offers too, do I have to accept all the offers? Or should I collect all the offers and accept only one at the end of notice period? Or accept all the offers and then select one to join? I am confused about this. Need help on all these offer procedures. Tata Consultancy Cognizant Wipro Infosys Accenture

Mamas, I am stressing a lot because next month, we won’t have health insurance anymore as I quit my job for a better opportunity. I don’t care much about us but more about my baby as she needs to go see the pediatrician for her vaccines. Is there a private insurance you can recommend? All the ones I saw are $400 a month with high deductible :( I also applied to Chip (apparently, we are eligible but I am afraid they don’t cover the practice we are using). I am really lost :(
Reaching out to C Section and 2nd degree tear mamas out there! Anyone had issues getting on the Peloton post recovery? I feel like the seat is still too hard and unconformable even after 7m of delivery. Thoughts?
I was offered a role in EY Brand/mktg/comms team. Currently at PwC. Has anyone made the jump?
My 4 year old has a very creative imagination. Loves to play make believe and create stories, today he tried to make friends with some neighborhood kids. He is very energetic and the kids (mixed ages) called him weird. It broke my heart. They didn’t know I heard them, but it broke my heart.
Remember this from pre-WFH? Ah memories.
Day 2 and this is awful. I feel like I'm failing. I'm normally a calm, rational person but juggling 2 toddlers and a demanding job is nearly impossible.
Anyone here used an au pair before? We love our nanny, but are struggling to afford her. I’ve heard mixed reviews about au pairs. Can someone tell me the good, bad, and ugly? It seems to really depend on the girl you get. I know au pairs don’t make much, but we take good care of our caregivers and would probably pay her extra if she’s amazing.
A little exhausted this Easter: my husband is an introvert and completely shuts down around my family. One word questions to answers, plays on his phone, just withdraws.
I try to be accommodating, limit our time there, give him plenty of space, to no avail. It makes me sad and dread the holidays. Has anyone found a good solution?
I feel horrible for not being creative enough or engaged enough with my kids during COVID imposed homeschool.
Ladies how do you handle dinners? This is the only meal I'm 'in charge of' at home but I'm always at a loss for what to do. Do you guys just make what you feel like, do you ask your spouse each day what he feels like, do you have a schedule or menu of sorts so both of you know what's coming up for dinner that day?
For those who had miscarriages: did you do anything on the would-be due date to commemorate it? For ex- immediately after my miscarriage we went on a family trip as an escape/way of healing, and we collected a bunch of seashells. I got a little glass jar and am planning on putting the shells in it as a way of memorializing the loss for myself (it was 7 months ago, but passing the due date kind of wraps up the process for me - it certainly helps that I’m pregnant with a healthy baby currently).
Anyone else struggling to wfh while watching kids? Trying to bill hours and entertain my 18 mo twins but ultimately end up doing neither - not enough work or outside time and too much tv
Anyone else have total mom guilt from work? I put everything into my day at work, and my toddler gets the short end of the stick when we get home. I'm barely making it through dinner prep, dinner itself, and loathing the temper tantrum bedtime routine. I don't get to spend the quality time I want with him during the work week. He shouldn't have to wait until the weekend. I don't know what to do. Dinner is a family affair and we get to connect there, but besides that I'm at a loss.
How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)
Starting solids for baby on 6 month bday coming up. Any recommendations? Food, bib, spoon, life advice - all welcome.
Considering Yumi over Gerber or Cerelac. Thoughts?
No known allergies for baby, though my husband does break out when he has unroasted peanuts, even in a Snickers bar.
No dietary restrictions for baby. Just want a fast healthy happy baby that eats all things. Baby sits with us at meal time already and watches us "enjoy" our food.
Anyone that works on at Amazon that can speak to the culture and work life balance? I have my final interviews on Thursday and Friday and thinking of cancelling because of all the horrible things I heard. I do not mind working hard but I also not looking to be on 24/7. I also heard people are mean and stabbing in the backs happen a lot. Is any of this true?
The role I am interviewing for is Sr UX Researcher, as of now in the physical stores team.
Sometimes I feel like yelling at people "I'm growing two humans right now and I did XYZ faster and better. What's your excuse?"
Other days I just want to curl up in bed because that's all I can handle. Unfortunately I can't do either because I don't want to sacrifice a promotion year in addition to my body by people's perception I won't be up to it.
Anyone have a similar experience? I just came back from my maternity leave with baby no.2. This is the second maternity leave that I came back to having no clients and no work to do for the first few weeks. I worked at a different firm when I had my first that didn’t give me any real work for a month after my leave even though they knew I was coming back. Fast forward to this leave, I had a bunch of clients but again no indication of giving them back and no real time line for chargeable work.
I have been given a sick note by my doctor to get my hours altered and be on light duty because I’m having crazy pregnancy insomnia. Since I’m not ready to talk about my pregnancy it just says Stress anxiety and tiredness. I’m just really worried this will reflect badly on me but I have become so inefficient at work. What do you think?
