I’m in my 11th year at a boutique plaintiff’s firm. The name partner I work under is great in a lot of ways. I ln general it could be worse. But the guy is a baby. I’m certainly no slacker. In fact I’m excellent at my job. But the guy is obsessed with people being in the office before 9am. No matter what’s on/not on the calendar or what I’m doing personally. Today I got in at 9:12am and apparently he’d been ranting and raving over my whereabouts. When is it time to not answer to this crap?
Hi watch fam, watch noob here. My father in law’s Rolex is in pretty bad shape. He bought it brand new from a dealer in 2006. Where can I get it fixed for him in New York? Rolex store my best option or outside? Also, considering they can fix this, any idea about the value of this watch/model? Thank you!
Any new parents, did you decide to circumcise your baby boy? Why and why not? I am conflicted, It’s not required in my culture , No one in my family had done it but looking at some benefits I am not sure if I should get it done for my newborn.
Hi all! I’m doing some research on parental leave policies to make a case to improve ours. How many weeks does your policy offer? Does it differ between “primary” and “secondary” caregiver? Birth vs other means of growing your family? I’m particularly interested in independent shops, but would love to hear from folks at the network agencies as well. It you could comment with your agency name, I’d be super grateful. Thank you thank you! ❤️
Folks. Reaching out in desperation here. I have a family who are US citizens stuck outside of HKIA right now along side another family member who is a SIV holder with his family. Does anyone have contacts on the ground that can help get them out? I will add they have a baby and a disabled child with them.
Crew - what are cool and offbeat indian baby boy names?? We’re having our first kid !! thanks in advance for suggestions!!
What are you doing for your mother today?
When you realize your 2nd kid is about to be born but you can’t stop worrying about how you’ll be able to afford full time day care for 2 kids when you and your spouse go back to work.
Hired a new nanny and currently on day 2. I am still on maternity leave so helping toddler transition and baby. She seems nice but tardy and my toddler is a rocket. My husband made breakfast for me she came and ate it. She helped the toddler nap and now sleeping lying next to him 🤦♀️. Baby cried and she put him in car seat and tried to rock him along with car seat . She was so nice during the trial (sweeet) but I am confused now on what did I sign up for ! Can I get some tips please ?
My 3yr old daughter was playing with 2 different sized crayons yesterday. The bigger one was mom and the smaller one baby! The imaginitive conversations that followed were the best entertainment ever!
A friend of mine needs referral for JP Morgan.Is anyone willing to DM, share contact and help? His wife is expecting a baby and his current job is too toxic
My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)
Just found out we’re having a third kid - any advice?? We have a 4 year old and a 2 year old.
My wife and I are in a bad spot. A close friend of ours recommended individual and couples therapy for us both. Tonight, my wife blew up on me and told me I wasn’t worth going to therapy with and that I’m a horrible father to our kids. Could use a word or two of encouragement right now. Never felt so low.
Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
Need recommendations for a good mattress that will last 5-10 years and make me sleep like a baby. Budget is max 3-4k. Thoughts?
Busy season doesn't really feel like it used to be anymore. I think before, it was generally understood it would take half of the time of the year, but now it feels like it covers 70 to 90% of the year. I would love to hear if this is the feeling from people who work at big 4, mid tier/regional and small boutique cpa firms?
Thoughts on taking a shot before a video interview? It’s my first ever case interview and I’m so nervous I’m going to pass out from nerves help 😩
How do you track your time spent reading and responding to emails? I don’t want to run a timer each time I open outlook, but I feel like I’m losing hours of billable time every day to one-off emails that I would never individually bill for.
Do you get paid more for being on a public client in audit rather than private￼ as you move up to manager? I know there were no pay difference from staff to senior.
I struggle like crazy staying on track for billable hours. I will work 10.5 hours and look back at my day and 6 of it was billable. Tips for doing better about this?? I have minimums to meet and this is not sustainable

What are the best consultancies for digital strategy and customer experience design? Do any of the B4 or MBB have strong practices here?
Hey fishes I know it's kinda depressing but that's what I am into so it's been months now with Amazon and I've working in a new role learning great stuff but here's the catch I don't have anyone to contact with like people here don't reply if you ask for help and if you even call out like they defend by saying they're busy . Forget favors they don't reply to "hey". I have total 2 yrs of exp so barely saw work culture at office. But I wanna ask is this normal or I'm overthinking.
Anyone who renege and get any backlash? I signed an offer with a big 4 for full time and am still interviewing with other companies. ( Was an intern last summer and my offer got pushed out to summer cause my masters is 1.5 years and I graduate in December (In my defense the big 4 refused to let me go to another practice.) Plus pressured by parents to accept something before I graduate.

Is there a list of companies that still sponsor H1B? Asking for my entry-level nephew who just graduated.
