It’s a learning curve, but you’ll eventually find your groove. There’s a lot to learn the first two years as a new mom, and definitely a lot to learn/do as a Senior. I went on a reduced schedule bc I didn’t want to feel pressured to meet the same high expectations of a full time senior (all who were single or males). Test out new schedules to find what works for your family, and seek support from other parents in your office who understand what you’re going though. I’ve found having kids connects me to a lot more people now (in higher positions) and we share struggles and tips to help each other when we feel overly challenged.

I have a friend working at a regional public accounting firm and her office is demanding that she return to in-person work in the office by January 18th. She has two children currently doing remote elementary school. Her office told her that they believe she is inefficient because of kids being home, and that’s why she needs to return to the office. She wants to continue working from home. Any advice on what she should bring up as a counter argument in favor of WFH?

In desperate need of advice: My new manager is clearly under-qualified for his position. (Some background: He was hired in June. His resume shows 10 years of experience.) I spend a lot of my time teaching him the basics of audit. He often calls me to ask questions about work for his other clients, specifically “to ensure they aren’t dumb questions for his boss.” At this point, our deliverables are behind, his work is falling on me, and our team is suffering. What do I do? (1/2)

Need advice on negotiating salary. I’ll graduate in June and my offer letter for a first year transfer pricing analyst is so low... when I saw my offer letter it’s really shocking. I want to negotiate my salary Monday, I’m a little shy about it but I’m gonna ask the recruiter... it’s only 47,500. I was expecting 60,000-65,000 or at least 60k... how appropriate is it to negotiate a higher salary? Could I lose my offer? How can i approach this dilemma? I’m grateful for the offer btw.
