Newly pregnant here! Anyone get pregnant right after starting a new job? Nervous about telling my team and needing to take leave within my first year at the new company.
The kid was there all this timeeeeeeeeeee
Recommendations for a gynecologist in the Arlington area (preferably near Ballston/Virginia Square)? Not pregnant or looking to be, just for regular checkups.
Any managers/senior managers in here with kids? How do you do it? I’ve been working 24/7 for the last year straight and have a small child and have barely made it. Can’t imagine how people do this for
Random Question - I live with a roommate for the last 2 years now. We have become really good friends and she is like a sister to me. We used to hangout and do a lot of fun stuff before COVID. When I make a plan to do something during COVID, I always include her to do or go somewhere. Of late, when she makes plans, she goes on her own or if she goes with her friends (whom I know), she would not invite me. I feel left out and sad because of it. I think I should not feel that way as she can
Does anyone else wish their school had been more up-to-date on STEM when they were a kid? I went to college with some kids who had been practicing and studying code since middle school. I learned about it from the internet in high school enough that I wanted to go to college for it, but I still feel like I started behind everyone else regardless of gender.
I'm 30lbs up from wedding weight. First kid is 15months and becoming more active, second kid is coming in October, and I'm targeting director promo next year. Any tips on shedding fat before baby two?
Does anyone know if we can reimburse expenses for items listed in Wageworks while on maternity?
I know we cannot expense phone/internet/ commuter benefit as I am not actively doing work.
However, for other items that fall under wage works reimbursement, I couldn’t find anything in writing yet.
I get extremely annoyed when I hear men (I hear this most from BM) talking about women's submission and assuming that they should operate as the authority in a relationship simply because they're men. Sounds very 50s to me. I want a partner, not an entitled insecure father figure.
How do you plan out your dates for maternity leave? I do not want to work up until my due date because I do not want the added stress prior to birth. I also want to give the people covering for me some clear instructions and don’t want to deal with going into labor while still in the middle of managing projects. My company does STD for the first 6 weeks but there is a one week “waiting period” that’s unpaid unless you put in PTO. How do you plan your last day knowing baby could come anytime?
My work has picked up a lot during COVID and my husband has had to pick up the childcare slack. I’m getting blamed for being a bad parent because I work too much.. anyone else dealing with this? Cont.
Got a package of 100k in the US. Getting 20lpa in India and wife is getting 32lpa. Having a kid.
Parents are not alive. Less relatives, less friends.
Should we go to the US leaving behind 50lpa cumulative package in India?

Any fish living in Naperville? Walked around there today and seems like an amazing place to raise a family, however I’ve heard the area can be a little stuck up / pretentious. Would love to hear a real take / if this is true
How does one cope with all the stress of being a working mom plus having a 2.5 year old that has been sick at least twice a month since July? I have no back up care besides my husband and I tag teaming but I took the brunt of that because he works more hours than I do. Now I figured out between my emotions running high due to pregnancy and me being unable to get enough projects done on them, I got a lot of negative feedback. I’m so worried about her being consistently sick and I’m not sure what
What are some of the normal FSH, HCG and Estradiol and AFC levels in non-pregnant females... (we are TTC)
BURNED OUT MOM! And sad to say it. 😔 I have a 2.5 years old boy and a 6 months old baby girl. The boy is becoming so so stubborn. I feel like his daddy and I are doing something wrong. He used to be way more behaving and generally a sweet boy said the daycare and neighbors. I know he is a good fella. Could this be just a phase?! It's worth mentioning both his dad and I are going through stressful times at work.
Hi, I took emergency leave for 15 days to look after my mother who undergone minor surgery and needs bedrest. My pm didn't ask any proof. will they ask when I'm back to work? Actually I don't have any receipts. I've lost it. Wipro

I don't think Miss Manners response was helpful but I'm not sure what else there would be to say without maybe flipping the table or something haha. Any witty retorts?
My sister has been with her SO for like 10 years, basically a common law marriage. They bought a house together and are now talking about having a baby. They are high income earners, bringing in about 450K together. Apparently, my sister’s maternity leave, covers about 50% of her income after 3 mos. She’s considering asking her SO to pay her about 50K to help cover some of the “lost” amount while on mat leave…IDK how to feel about it. Should I give her advice or stay out of it?

One of the team member has applied leaves for continuous 3 days this month. Later she applied for a 15 days leave saying a medical emergency. Both the leaves were rejected from her manager saying connect with HR. though she is on leave without PM leave approval and this is not even prior notice to the team.
Now'what and all would be the consequences she might face. Is there any chance of these things are being escalated? Please advise!
Currently have a hospice patient on physical therapy caseload for device recommendations to give her a better QOL in her final days. I go in to assess her and find she has a sacral ulcer. Nurse and I (the PT) agree that the patient would benefit from a ROHO cushion for her W/C. Hospice comes back and says they don’t cover cushions! This is beyond messed up. Bigger picture, this $170 cushion is probably cheaper than most items they’ve spent money on covering for her.

I’m looking to formally pivot to HR. My experience has been a jack of all trades, operations, some HR, some finance, etc. I’m currently a Director of a federal agency that I’ve been with for 7 years. I’m looking to transition back into the private sector. Would a SHRM-SCP help with the transition and will the certification make a difference?
How do people deal with being told that their job application isn't being considered further because they don't meet MINIMUM requirements for the job... for a job where they were confidently above the minimum bar.
I know I sound really entitled right now but I guess I'm just surprised and a little shocked... I know I may not be the BEST candidate who applied but to not meet minimum requirements is a complete surprise to me.
Guess I'm just feeling pretty shit about myself right about now.

When do you think it’s the best time to ask my firm to be remote only/ work from a diff country? During my review? Right before I move? Moving isn’t an option and I have enough money saved up in case they fire me on the spot. Just thinking maybe there’s a time to ask where they won’t fire me right away and don’t know if I should take advantage of the market now or wait as long as possible. I’m a 2018 grad specialty corp.

Just found out my abusive ex made partner this year. We were together almost 4 years until I had the courage and help of a therapist to leave him last year. We met through friends, work at different Big 4, and are similar in age so no weird power dynamics apply except for the huge salary gap when I was an associate and he a senior manager. Trying not to sound vengeful and I thought I was okay with a year of therapy but I can’t believe the sociopath who almost killed me made it.

I’m a manager on a new account. There is an acting manager that has been on the account for a few years. Any time I reach out to him for help he is so dismissive and looks for every opportunity to make me look bad. I can’t stand it. I heard he is rolling off this account in the future so I figured just avoid him

I’ve been really struggling lately with not being able to see my significant other often. My bf works a lot and the lack of quality time together has started to bother me. I really start to get in my head thinking he doesn’t want to be around me etc etc. We don’t live together so I usually only seem him Friday and Saturday nights and maybe Sunday’s…any advice on how to make the best of that time or try to get more time together during the week in a way that works for both of us?
Think I’m done with dating apps unless it’s tinder to get laid. I am 30 been on them since I was 22 and find them to be such a waste of time. I’ve met some descent people on The League, but that’s not how I’m going to find the “one”. I am going to concentrate on joining groups that I enjoy and being outgoing. Time is precious I’m just burned out on apps - anyone else feel the same way? I was recruited by a match maker I’m going joint that lol

Feeling like we should be spreading more love in days like these - I know we complain about our jobs a ton and it’s easy to do that but I think we should all be proud of how far we’ve come and how much we’ve learned and grown no matter how shitty some days or some coworkers or some clients are ♥️ working in PA helped me gain confidence, courage, and be more resilient. Gives me hope that when I finally get out of it, I’ll be a stronger person overall
