I lost my father a few months ago and I’m not coping well. Has anyone used an employee assistance program for this? Should I just seek a counselor privately?
Is it possible to push back on a parental leave policy? I work at a startup and they’re sharing with me the plan today (I’m the first pregnancy).
Alright moms. 4th kid in daycare and this one just won’t nap. We send a portable white noise machine and she has a lovey. But she apparently has serious FOMO. I’ve asked them to move her to the furthest corner. Then moved her to the younger baby room. But I’m out of ideas. 11 months old (10 mo adjusted). I had chalked it up to just starting at daycare but we are almost 2 months in. She’s a hot mess in the evenings. What magic do you have for me. All of my others fell in a routine by now!
Anyone realized their child is a very poor speller? What did you and how did you help them? My child is in 2nd grade and I want to help before it gets even worse. Open to all advice. TIA
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Is there an appropriate timing to tell the firm that you are pregnant?How many weeks along?
Have been pinged for a possible role as Director of Operations at a promising looking startup with a 50%% pay increase & equity. It looks like an amazing opportunity.. but my husband and I have just started trying for our first kid, and I'm not sure about leaving the stability and benefits of Big 4, even though I feel like I have run out of career growth here. Has anyone changed jobs at a similar point, or worked at a startup as a new mom, that might be able to share perspective or opinions?
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
Serious question. What baby items are most expensive? (other than diapers, formula, college education, nanny.. Etc)
How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?
Hi! We have a jogathon fundraising in my son’s school. Most of our families are overseas, and don’t want to ask donations to few friends during this difficult times. Our friends also have school age kids. Is it ok if we just do one donation as family? My son wanted to get the expensive prices, but dont want to spend $150 for a kid’s hot lunch. Sorry if it is a dumb question but it is our first fundraising. Thanks
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months

Currently on parental leave. As a father I’m so dang thankful my firm has it and I can’t imagine how my immigrant parents manage to raise two kids without leave.
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...
Has anyone figured out anything creative for a baby shower in a pandemic? Is it still okay to send out cute invites for a virtual one??
My wife said I could watch both of my kids this weekend or take one and go tailgating at Notre Dame....... 😳😳 I just purchased one of those child wrist leashes. Anyone other guys use those?
Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency
I’m terrified of pregnancy but not of motherhood (except for the noise, kids are so loud). Pregnancy/breastfeeding looks horrible to me, but I’d feel bad about missing out on kids because I was scared of something that wasn’t so bad. It doesn’t help that I don’t know a single pregnant person—in my 30s and none of my friends have children! Any moms out there who can speak about what it’s actually like?
I’m a 1st year prob 1 teacher & I just found out I’m pregnant (due mid-June). Definitely NOT planned and VERY stressed nervous. It’s hard to be happy right now. Advice on telling my principal, etc?
COVID helped us see that some meetings really could be emails. ZOOM helped turn those emails back into meetings. Ah, technology.
Darden vs Yale SOM full time program? No dollars at both. - Location Agnostic - MBB/ Product Management at FAANG - loved the vibe and culture at both schools

Would you live in fidi if there was a covid discount? In early 20s and worried it’s a very quiet / boring area but have found a nice luxury building discounted wifi lots of amenities.
Thoughts about taking paternity leave piecemeal? I.e one month full time then a 2-3 days a week for the rest of the two months so I can work while taking care of my child?
Gonna start new project after 5 months on the bench. It's a miracle they haven't fired me 🙌
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..
Just got pulled off my main project and don't have any project scheduled yet.... Feel like I will be fired :(
I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)
Booked a flight on Delta after my AA was canceled and I got Zone 1 despite having no status. Did I miss something? It's a small plane so maybe everyone is Zone 1? LGA-ORD
Doctor spouse wants to a start her own practice. I want to work hard and become MD in consulting. Have 1 kid currently. I feel helping wife start her practice will mean my career will have to take a backseat. Thoughts/suggestions ?
Greetings fellow HR members, I am currently looking for my next opportunity and looking at HR business partner/ HR Generalist or Associate HR manager￼￼. I’m open to remote work and East Coast and Midwest￼. Thank you for your Help.
Trying to get a better understanding of the difference in hour requirements between Big 4 tax and a law firm. I’ll be joining a firm that has a 1850 billable requirement with bonus eligibility starting at 1900. In Big 4 tax I regularly worked 50 hour weeks but had low billables (~30hr per week) b/c there wasnt always work to do and quite a bit of admin. Can you hit 1900 working 50 hour weeks, or are most people putting in closer to 60 hour weeks?
AA staff denied my boarding through One World Ruby (even though I showed her my Privilege Club card) very unprofessionally because it doesn't show on my boarding pass. Gotta love holiday travels.
With the travel ban lifted, does this mean we can now get visa stamps from consulates in EU without requesting the NIE?
ACN SM here. I did the math yesterday and my annual base salary/no. of hours worked per week (either actively working or stressing about work) comes to peanuts! I did this bcos an NGO has made me an offer that is significantly lower than my base, but the hours are more reasonable - so suffice it to say my hourly rate is better. I'm torn.. lower salary/better WLB vs more $$$ but no life
I’m thankful for this app as I was able to land a job and is now enjoying my new role in technology consulting in Oracle. I had background in consulting because of Accenture and Big4 companies I joined in the past but because of pandemic, I had to move to high paying jobs and now earning 68% more. Thanks to all who have helped me and shared their advices and experiences which were very instrumental in my journey.
I had my onsite 5 weeks ago, and recruiter reached out last week saying I cleared Hiring Committee, and that he’s waiting for VP approval before we move on to compensation talk. How long does the VP approval typically take? And what is the probability of rejection at this stage? Also, how many more review stages are there before I am made a written offer (assuming I clear VP approval)? Thanks!
