Has your firm put any new benefits or programs in place over the past several months that make you feel like they genuinely care for your well-being?￼

Will I be burning bridges if i start looking for a new job after 2 months? I just started as an admin assistant at an investment firm and i like it a lot here (switched industries from healthcare) but i just got an email from a recruiter about similar positions that pay 30k more. I really do like my current job and am still trying to figure out what i want to do long term but am i dumb for not pursuing it? could i also interview then use offers i get to counter with my current or am i too new?
I’m a new mother to be ( also first time mother at 40 ) and would love to hear your experience about your first days at home with a newborn. I’m excited and anxious at the same time so please share your lessons learnt of what you wished you knew and how would you prepare yourself better.
Pool advice! Moms, looking forward to taking my baby to the pool this summer. Already ordered a swimsuit with built-in UPF, a hat, and pediatrician-approved sunscreen. Now would love your advice on swim diapers! Also, any other pool must-haves (life jacket? Arm floaties?)? Baby is not walking yet so would only be in the pool with me, likely just in the baby pool.
I’m 6 months pregnant and recently been interviewing for an in house job. Recruiter came back today said they want to proceed with the offer, and will have a phone call with me to discuss the compensation. I have not told them I’m pregnant yet. Feels too manipulative if I don’t tell them I’m pregnant when talking abt compensation, if I do, I’m afraid it will negatively impact the expected pay, etc. What should I do?
Husband just started a new job that came with a nice pay bump and lots of exciting opportunities. Over a year ago, I switched to government after I returned from maternity leave, so my job has got very dull with lots of perks: no stress, no deadline, good benefits with making decent money ($110k+). I’m not sure if it’s my insecurity or a legitimate feeling. I feel like the gap between us is growing. He is always on his phone, don’t have time to play our baby. He thinks I’m nagging him. Cont…

I am not American so I don’t understand how all this can happen. But question for the white folks. How do you guys feel when these black murders occur? Do you feel like you can’t do anything about it? Kinda like how you’d feel if you saw a world vision poster of a starving kid in say, africa? What do you think you can do or do you feel powerless just as the black people feel?
Apple Watch owners: why do you have an Apple Watch? What are the benefits/downsides and is it worth it? From what I read, it seems mostly beneficial to track health like a Fitbit?
Is consulting really even worth it anymore if I have to pay for my own food now and travel moving forward is going to be at the max 1/3 of what it used to be (if things are ever “normal” again) so all those benefits we forced ourselves to accept as worth are now gone?
About health insurance: switching to a different plan next year that only allows for FSA account. My current plan gives me an HSA account. Can I keep my HSA for next year but also have an FSA?
I feel like I’m doing pretty well but FIRE is still impossible, unless my math is wrong?
32 and NW 362k. VHCOL, saving like $80k/year. Target nest egg is $3M to retire on $120k/year, which I think is still probably like 20-30 years away? So if I’m lucky I’ll just get to regular retire? I feel like I’m missing something.

Historically, I have had very poor examples of female leaders and have found better success under male managers and mentors. I really appreciate the positivity of this thread and the contributors.

I’m looking to do a case tonight if anybody is interested! Ive done a lot of practicing of structure and have gone along with recordings and stuff, but this would be my first legit case practice.

I’ve heard mixed reviews about investing in target date funds Cz index or mutual funds, and I am confused. What do you guys think?
My building says they won't have gas till end of next week or potentially for months and offered $150 to buy a microwave / toaster oven. Did anyone have similar experience and have any suggestions on what else I might be entitled to? I'd have to buy food every day if gas is out for months! It's fine for a week but more than that sounds preposterous
