Any tips on finding motivation after maternity leave? I’ve never been so uninterested in my job and am instead just thinking of all the time i’m missing with my baby 😕
Hi Ladies! Personal finance question: looking to buy a place and I live in a HCOL city. If we spend 36% of our monthly salaries on mortgage and have 22% leftover after bills (one kid daycare costs etc). Does that sound reasonable?
Meeting my SO’s mother and grandma for the first time (they live across the country so we’re traveling there just for this). I want to get them a little gift, any ideas? We’re flying there so I haven’t been able to come up with anything that would fit my carryon.
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
I’m turning 30 in a month. My boyfriend and I have talked about getting engaged but I’m not sure when he’ll propose (probably after the pandemic is over when we can go on trips safely). I’m realizing that if he waits until after the pandemic, it’s going to be at least a year until the actual wedding. Then I had always planned on being married for a few years before getting pregnant. I’m having major fertility anxiety. Any advice?
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
What precautions have you taken for an infant or baby on airplanes since they can’t wear a mask?
I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
Overheard. P1- I workout at home P2- I have a 35lb baby so lifting him counts right P1- you are lucky you can have kids P1- *WTF look* P2- I lost my ability to have babies couple of yrs ago *crickets*
Does anyone know how parental leave affects the year end rating process if at all? Do you still go through the process as normal?
Supply chain Folks. I have a friend who is looking to get back to work after maternity hiatus of a few years. She was a buyer. She wants to pursue CSCP. Will it help her chances of landing a job? Tks!
Girlfriends mother attempted suicide last Friday (didn’t go through). We are long distance and she had panic attacks all weekend before calling me today to break up with me. I had no idea. Said she doesn’t have emotional capacity to be in a relationship. Not looking for advice, just heartbroken for her and for our relationship. I loved her more than I’ve ever loved anyone in my life and she pushed me away 😞
For anyone that needs a laugh - I’m trying to baby wear my infant son more, but he has the worst gas. It’s like being strapped to a skunk! 😳😂
Ladies, I know Deloitte has 16 week parental leave. What’s the policy for your company ( BCG, Bain, McKinsey, PWC, Etc)? Thanks.
Starting from blood work to getting pregnant, if everything goes smooth what is a timeline we are looking at?
How much notice is required before taking parental leave at BCG? Is there something required per rule or is it more just best practice to give 60/90 days notice to give folks time to plan/schedule around it?
I’m at the end of my rope. My AMD went on maternity leave a month ago and at this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to get a temp replacement. I’m expected to work up and put together plans for 2022 almost all on my own while taking time to train new AMPs and MPs. My director expects me to delegate to them when they have little to no background. I know I should probably start looking elsewhere but I feel like with the Great Resignation, it’s going to be the same anywhere else.
I’m an attractive 42 year old happily married mother of 4. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but a 8/10. Dads of my kids friends text me to invite my kids to activities and additional sport practices. I’m pretty naive and assume they’re doing it because they like my kids. I don’t want to send the wrong message by accepting. Are they interacting with me because of my kids or because I’m attractive? If I bring my kids to the functions am I sending a message that I’m interested in something else?
How far along will you announce or notify the office that you are pregnant? I’m getting several different responses, with pretty good reasons. Does it matter if you are staff or managers or above?

I know the UK pays less but I am seeing differences of $80-100k for Advisory M at one of the Big 4. Why in the world are salaries so low? And don’t say healthcare. My healthcare is like $140/month for a PPO w low deductible. Plus taxes are less here. Makes the thought of a potential move over there hard :/
