If you're a Big Tech company, what is usually the rationale behind only hiring senior product designers (and not junior-mid)?
Does anyone here hold a non-CFA designation (CFP, CAIA, FRM etc.) and what kind of role/position do you have?
The team I worked/traveled with for the past 5 years was laid off today. Seeing their Skype status show up as “presence unknown” just hit a nerve. 😢
Honestly we all bitch and moan about it but at the end of the day Ol' Uncle Advertising has moved me to Chicago, moved me to New York, flew me around the world & fed me well. Who else feels this way??
I've my own thoughts about the following topic but I want to hear what everyone has to say.
The question is: do you need to be a competent software engineer/developer in order to be a good solutions engineer/architect?
After nine months, I'm still not used to working as a salaried employee. Ten years of hourly work and simply making sacrifices for my employer have really trained me to be a work machine. Now, I'm able to take a day off for a needed dental procedure, but I can't stop the anxiety from bubbling up. I know it's silly, but somehow it's been ingrained in me that a good work ethic means always being at work when scheduled unless I'm literally contagious. Help.
Hi all, I am looking to internally apply/transfer to a PwC legal clerkship (= Aussie legal summer associate) from Assurance. The recruiter suggests I contact some associates/SAs to stand out/further my application. I am junior & can appreciate that people are busy with much higher priorities than replying to a networking email. How do I respectfully reach out and ask for their time? The one contact I had made earlier this year has ignore my email so I am apprehensive/unsure how to proceed.

Okay so tell me if I’m the only one but I feel like I need to test everyday. I’ve also noticed the test line getting lighter.
I feel like my mum only ever looks for me when she wants money. Once i send it’s all good for her. I’m going through a lot being pregnant for the first time but she hardly randomly asks how I’m doing. Doesn’t even check on how preps for baby are going. PS my dad is late so she’s my best only parent.
Anyone experiencing depression? I did a self assessment, and scored 2.5/5. Extreme fatigue, loss of joy and some level of loss of appetite ( not really experiencing prolonged sadness and trouble sleeping). If you are, are you seeking professional help? I’m 12 weeks pregnant. Had one serious depression episode during week 7, but has been getting better since. This week I feel like I’m getting back into the darkness again though. Is this gonna get better past trim1 or not really?
What’s in your hospital bag? I’m not sure why but I’m having a difficult time packing mine. Almost 37 weeks and need to finalize this thing!!!
Serious question- how on earth do first time parents pick out things for a registry? Like if you haven’t managed your own child, how do you know if you like this carrier or that? This lounger or that? Do people just trust their closest friend/advisor and mimic their decisions? I’ve spent so much time reading the diff bw strollers (which clearly is the hardest decision) - bloggers, Buying Guides, etc- and my head is going to explode 🤯. Gift cards it is 😆
Does the fatigue get better in seconf trimester?

Have anyone 35+ had successful pregnancies after one or more miscarriage(s)? I’m feeling defeated, don’t know if we should try again :(
Anyone have experience with slow rising HCG? Mine went from 41k to 58k over 4 days. My OB is concerned with those numbers. Curious if anyone else was similar.
Any partners here that can share how they handled maternity leave? I'm early in my pregnancy (~9 weeks) but starting to feel anxious / unethical about certain work-related things, like new business calls. I keep having the conversations - the outcome of which is clients expecting to have me as their advisor - knowing that I'll be at least mostly unavailable during the fall busy season. Is it unethical to have these calls and not be transparent? (Continued in comments)
Pregnant and covid positive. Fever has broken but I'm now coughing up a very little blood with phlegm. Anyone go through something similar? Waiting for my ob to call me and let me know if I need to head to ER or wait this out.
Anyone here in EY USA and can point me to the maternity policy? I can only find Canadian or UK versions ok the policy site!
Not currently pregnant but hoping for some insight and advise. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, but I’m really frustrated in my position and may start job hunting within 6-12 months. Hopefully I will be pregnant by then. Has anyone here experienced job hunting while pregnant or just post baby? I’m concerned about maternity leave and if I should just suck it up until I have a kid.
Did anyone get a 4th COVID vaccine during pregnancy? I already have 3 from pre-pregnancy but I feel hesitant about the next booster since I’m pregnant. I’m due in Nov which is ultimate germ season so I can see why it would be good but equally I don’t feel as comfortable having it pregnant. I also caught COVID in June for the first time so 🤷🏽♀️
I had an amniocentesis performed at 16 weeks and found out today (19.5 weeks) that the chromosome analysis and microarray to test for microdeletions came back normal. Had they not come back normal, I would have aborted. I am distraught that others will not have this choice now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.
Winter is coming! Are there any outerwear recommendations that grows with the tummy and can be used later with and without the baby?
Was anyone prescribed an injectable blood thinner before traveling internationally? If so, was there any side effects to taking it? Is it a necessary precaution to take?
STM due in mid-January & going to start on my leave form to submit to Leadership. With my first, I was planning to go on leave at 39 weeks but she came at 38+2.
I was planning to work up until I give birth since I’ll be at home & will do most of my nesting during the holiday disconnect. Should I put the due date as my “estimated” leave date?
