I’m loving these TikToks where the moms calls to opt her child out of in person education. This is one of them: https://vm.tiktok.com/JFjjYTo/
Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢

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!
What do parents do if their child is choiced and don't want their child to go to school? Will they lose choice? We haven't heard what's going on in this part.
Hello! Anyone work at EY? The 16 weeks granted for maternity leave…Is that full or partial pay?
Curious, are attorneys taking cases to sue hospitals and staff that the family members claim have ‘wrongly’ intubated unvaccinated COVID patients? As in they should not have been intubated? Saw a FB page where a woman is blaming the hospital staff that his husband should not have been intubated and says she has been contacted by many attorneys to sue the hospital.
Today would have been my baby shower. I’m so sad we couldn’t spend this gorgeous day with family and friends but I’m so thankful they took time to call, text, FaceTime and send tons of gifts. ❤️
How do you all feel about splitting vacations 50/50 in a relationship and dates 60/40? I might be old fashioned but this rubs me the wrong way. I feel like I have to work 2x as hard to be taken seriously at work as a woman and pay for all kinds of crap like hair appts, nails, makeup, outfits to be viewed positively by men. Not to mention, expensive birth control, periods, and eventually potentially having a child. 50/50 makes me feel like a friend and not that valued. Thoughts?
Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html

Any considerations when disclosing to the firm that your wife is pregnant? Debating when to share the news...
When is a good point to transition Baby 2 into Baby 1’s room? Baby 2 has only just started sleeping through the night, so I want to make sure that skill is solid before we make a move, but (con’t)
CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
Let’s start a conversation around parental leave - how is it at your firm? Does your firm do enough to support new parents? What changes can we make in our industry to better support working parents? Share your stories and thoughts!
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.
Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
I sent in mail message to recruiter directly, and they do not get back. Is it because I’m not a good fit or most recruiters are laid off during this COVID-19? I mean, some positions seem like perfect fit for me.
Those of you who are waiting or opposed to the COVID vaccine - do you feel obligated to divulge your true vaccine status to restaurants, employers, etc.?

Homegrown salary for a first year (homegrown) management consultant at PWC in Chicago? Not sure if consultant is the correct term, looking for comparable level at ACN. (ACN is A->SA->C)
Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.

Any recommendations for a “good” leadership book that has helped you? Hard to choose when reading reviews on Amazon, I prefer more personalized recommendations (as personal as it can get on fishbowl). Thank you!
Will there be a salary bubble like the housing bubble? Hearing how much people with 2-7 yrs experience are getting offered to move companies is blowing my mind. At some point this is not going to be sustainable and salaries will drop back down to reality. However, I am concerned that all of those folks with inflated salaries will get in situations they can’t support after the correction. Then what happens?
Me in my classroom last week...
Hey, I have offers in chicago and LA… which would be a better choice for someone who’s looking to exit to industry?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Anyone ever have to deal with Radiasson corporate? My hotel room had bed bugs on my last business travel engagement. I got terribly bit up!Looking for any advice.
“The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads” ~ Facebook data founder. Is it wrong that we idolize FAANG? Should the govt intervene in business and privacy?
Started horseback riding lessons yesterday after 14 years. It was heaven. I literally forgot where I was, and all the problems I have faced in the last couple of years with my ex-husband. I had to jolt myself back to reality when I got off. Such an incredible experience and can't wait to go again! ❤️🐎
“oh look a boring line up of 3 cars that all look the same” - says the intern looking over my shoulder at a print layout i have open. (our biggest client is automotive supplier) 🤦🏽♀️
