Put in my two weeks notice to go to a 9-5 style job where I will still be paid more for less work! I am a female, and when I told one of the male partners, they were like "yeah that makes sense, it will be great for starting a family." They know I am not even married yet. I tried to brush it off and say "yeah I'll have so much time to spend with my dogs." He proceeds to tell me how helpful it was that his wife had a 9 to 5 job when the kids were young. Why can't I want a chill job for myself?!?

Well, I did the exact same thing as a guy and everyone acted like I was copping out and taking the lazy route - “what else are you gonna do with your time?” Honestly people are judgmental either way.

Very true - I feel like society treats women’s value as their ability to have children, and men’s value as their economic output/job.

What an ass. Nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy your life. We can't take anything with us when we die so might as well enjoy it now.

This man cannot imagine that you value your time outside of your ability to be used for procreation. Sad for his wife, as he probably sees her the same way. I’m in the same boat, looking for more flexibility and time for myself and my dog.

I determined I wanted more time with my husband, my dogs, and for hobbies I had given up for the sake of my career. I was looking exclusively for jobs that allowed me that flexibility. When I left public accounting I was told no job was as flexible as that field for starting a family. I laughed and said good thing my family is already complete. 😁

If it makes you feel better my bday was yesterday and my family knows I don't want kids but my mom and my aunt from the bottom of their heart wished me to become a real woman and find a husband and have children because a woman without a family is worthless

Sounds like my mom. Sorry, OP :( Apparently after pushing me to become a successful independent woman all my life, now that I started to achieve that I all of a sudden don’t have “life balance” because I don’t want kids and that also makes me “weird.” 🤦🏼‍♀️

The EXACT same thing just happened to me. And I was actually leaving for other reasons (e.g. moving towards P&L ownership), the new job just happens to have better WLB. But this dude assumed that I was leaving for hours / starting a family. Ugh!

Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.

It’s restructuring season. KPMG, GT, and other firms have begun announcing layoffs. Everyone should take some time to polish off their resume.
