Looking at leaving big law for a small boutique (I would be attorney 3). Current firm offers 16 weeks paid parental leave; small firm is 12 paid. Is 12 reasonable/enough?
As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends. But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)
Is it worth it to get a travel car seat if you’re flying to a destination where you will then be driving? Kid will be 2, hoping to fly to see family later in the year. We have a big graco car seat we can take with us but I don’t know if it’s going to be a hassle or not.
I’m a baby lawyer (2020 grad) and I just got hit with my first “hey you’re a lawyer right?” From a high school classmate lol I feel like I’m officially an attorney now.
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Hi Ladies, This is a lengthy post, about a family matter. I am seeking some advice from the sisterhood. I am a married mother of a boy who is in Pre-K. I have been married for 8 years now. Contd..
Has anyone been unjustly rejected by their children due to encouragement by other parent/grandparents/other? It happens usually during separation and divorce but could happen within a marriage. In many extreme cases, the child is prevented from a relationship with a parent due to a being blocked physically and emotionally. I'm currently in a toxic marriage where spouse and MIL badmouth me (among other things) to my 5 yo son to the point where he rejects, badmouths, and even bullies me.
For the parent 🐟s
What are my best options for scoring small side gigs before end of year? I deduct lots of business expenses for doing some freelance work, but we had a baby so I didn’t earn any 1099s this year.
Right before Labor Day, after 2 months of dating, my guy made us “official” and asked me to be his girlfriend. (He made a romantic event of it, arranging a picnic by the lake). Ever since then, everything’s been great. until tonight. His ex, who he says he broke up with a couple of weeks before we met, called and says she could be pregnant (took a home pregnancy test and is going to the doctor ASAP). I’m full of all sorts of questions and feelings I’m not sure I have a right to. Advice?
Does anyone maybbbbbe think that this new “spike” in corona virus cases could be possibly caused by these massive riots in every major city? Not saying the riots are bad or wrong, but let’s not kid ourselves and say these aren’t a contributing factor. So when people are surprised at the USAs rising rates, I mean come on...
I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma was asked how he’d meet his future capital needs. He replied, “Mere paas Ma hain, Jack Ma” (I have Ma, Jack Ma), a reference to a famous line from the Bollywood film Deewar, in which the character says a person with a mother — Ma — has all the riches one needs https://restofworld.org/2021/chinese-investors-lose-out-in-indian-tech-ipo-boom/
Anyone looked at getting pregnant in a non-traditional way- How did you find a sperm bank you liked or have a convo with someone you know to be a donor?
I can’t tell anymore: are all married people miserable? Is it normal to think, ‘I can’t do this anymore’ when we’re alone? How do I reconcile that w/ my love for my child & their relationship?
After graduation I moved back home to save a bit of money. I am now 24 and want to move out this summer. I have very conservative immigrant parents that I know will be both angry and heartbroken when I tell them I want to move out. For those with similar parents - how did you have this conversation with them? I’m the oldest child and daughter and have spent most of my life trying to make my parents proud - the thought of disappointing them is tough 😞

Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Up for a promotion from SC to M. Just got an offer to work for a nonprofit doing the work I love, but with a 10-percent salary cut from my Deloitte base. Would of course have a better WLB. Thoughts?
Unfortunately was just laid off. I’m taking this as an opportunity to look forward to new experiences and people to work with. If anyone knows of any Producer gigs, I’m now available. I’m agency side.
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
Trying to figure out if I am a bit underpaid? 8 years total experience, 4 in industry, 3 in Big4, 1 at startup (current). Technical program mgmt/product management. Getting $130k, no bonus, in LA.
How difficult is it to be counseled out at Big 4 firms? Is it common or do you really have to mess up? Are any of the firms more cutthroat than the others?
Can someone compare (type of work, exit opps, comp, etc.) consulting at a major firm for a tech sector group vs. a financial services sector group?
Anyone know why Advisory can't see the comp statements yet?...as they were supposed to be available today...
Here for my check-up. One specific question- do I need a case-study for the first piece? Thank you ♥️ www.shevekanandan.com
Can you connect Seesaw to your Google classroom?
How is IBM Enterprise Strategy? WLB, Comp vs B4, team culture, work overall. Appreciate any insight- thanks!
For any POC creatives, have you ever had to explain to a recruiter why you're considered a diversity candidate? This was the first time I felt like I had to prove my diversity/minority background.
I am considering switching jobs from Citi Tech Risk to BIG 4 Risk Advisory. What are your thoughts?
Is it possible to switch jobs when H1B is in process?. I am in the final stages of interviewing for a FANG role. However, a bit anxious that I might not be able to join very soon. For context, my H1B was picked in the second lottery and was filed on 25th Sept. Are companies known to make adjustments to start dates?
