Tomorrow they are requiring masks again and I was almost in tears when I found out. We have been mask free (recommended) since June and I feel like we are being muzzled again.￼ I am vaccinated, frustrated, and have been off of antidepressants since March. I don’t even want to go into work tomorrow. Anything is better than being virtual and I am trying to look at the bright side, but moving backward still burns. We have parent-teacher conferences coming up and I am hoping that it’s temporary.
Lady 🐠 - What's S&'s maternity leave policy? Do you get the option to skip CRT? Does it play against you on any way?
Has anyone figured out anything creative for a baby shower in a pandemic? Is it still okay to send out cute invites for a virtual one??
Serious question. What baby items are most expensive? (other than diapers, formula, college education, nanny.. Etc)
These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j
Anyone ever developed brain fog while they were pregnant that hasn’t gone away after giving birth? My daughter just turned 2 and it’s been such a challenge feeling like my brain isn’t as sharp as it once was. This happens especially right before my period nowadays. Anyone have suggestions on how they cope or alleviate this?
What type of gifts do you give for Mother’s Day?
No shame in this brag moment: My baby brother is going going to be an SEC football player!!
Is there an appropriate timing to tell the firm that you are pregnant?How many weeks along?
Can anyone share their experience with having a child with a congestive heart failure? My child is having trouble gaining weight as a result (1lb a month at most) She's five months old and has a large ASD and smaller VSD. We are being monitored by a ped cardio. She'll need surgery in the future but they aren't sure when as she's fine overall. Can any of you share how u helped your child thru this? How did surgery go etc? I'm just so stressed and terrified about it all.
Well I'm a first time mom and feel home bound running the baby cycles. My baby is not a good sleeper so I feel like I am on 24/7. When he is a asleep in doing the usual bottles, dinner etc. I feel like I need more confidence to get myself and baby out of the house with everything in tow but I suppose walking through malls could help. Houston heat doesn't make it ideal to walk around outside during the day. I also do the night cycles solo so I'm pretty much too exhausted to do anything but want to get more scheduled about it so I can plan on an hour here and there when my husband gets home.
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Anyone here work at Wayfair? What do you think of the child trafficking blow up happening right now? Search #wayfair hashtag on Twitter if you haven't heard. At this point, we only have Wayfair saying this is ridiculous, but obviously this can't be a coincidence...
Is it worth it to get a travel car seat if you’re flying to a destination where you will then be driving? Kid will be 2, hoping to fly to see family later in the year. We have a big graco car seat we can take with us but I don’t know if it’s going to be a hassle or not.
When was the moment that it really dawned on you that you are a full fledged attorney? Mine was when I was a first year and did a pro bono DV case and won custody, alimony, and child support for mom.
Has anyone had to have a follow up to their anatomy ultrasound? I was told they didn’t get a good view of the baby’s heart and now I have to get a fetal echocardiogram. Anyone go through something similar?
5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
Anyone have experience with a Base + RSU only offer from AWS? The base very small, with a 2 year “cash sign on” that brings TC back up to a reasonable level. But after 2 years, your RSUs are fully vested, and TC = Base + RSUs. No additional detail is provided on the value of the RSUs… except for a “Target Total Comp”. Thoughts on this setup?
Almost got hit by a car crossing a street because I was too busy chortling at a FB post 😐😐😐 instead of paying attention. Lesson learned.

With the W&K layoffs ... 1. Recruiters are getting psyched. 2. Freelancers are even more unnerved. 3. Axe will fall on people phoning it in at other shops. What are your other predictions ? People leave ad game altogether?
The Anthony Joshua vs. Ruiz fight poses an interesting lesson for todays political climate - don’t underestimate Mexico... On a more serious note - JA what happened??
How to break into PE post MBA (HSW) if I have consulting (ACN) but no I-bank exp? I’m good with financial modeling, so I don’t think the technical interview would be a problem. And if I do break in, would my opportunities be limited in the future for any reason? (Ex. MBB -> I can get on partner track...can I ever hope to get on a similar track at KKR, etc. if I try to break in and join a smaller fund first?)
Interview with Goldman’s sales strategy and enablement team. Can anyone provide insight into this process? Or connect me with someone that can? TIA
The lead on my project told me he wants me to speak up more and defend my opinion. I started to do that and now he gives me attitude when I don't agree with him and speak up. I never win 🤷♀️
Any advice on how to go on vacation (beach) with two kids (1 and 3)? My husband and I like adventure and I can't imagine leaving kids with relatives.. do you hire a caretaker for when we want to do more adventurous things during the day?
