🐠 with kids - what comes first, your kids or your marriage? I was surprised to hear my spouse say kids, which left me a little blindsided. I know they are a sacrifice of time/money, but I made vows

At a company where you really need to “build your platform” (e.g., a big client) to get elected into the partnership. Have had several kids in the past few years and every time it sets me way back. I come back from mat leave and essentially whatever spot I had is gone. I know it’s “my choice” to have those kids but it’s frustrating that my company claims to want to support women/moms but I am essentially penalized for having kids. Am I wrong to feel frustrated by this? Any advice?

Where is future of forensics? Investigations and litigation seem to be the story of the old days. Forensic Analytics? E-discovery? What should i do if ive already started in investigations?
“What’s important are your skills… not your degree”. Got an email from our communications group at work today. Some coworkers who have a degree didn’t get this. In short it was saying “we want to help you grow your skills” with an invitation to talk to my manager and sign up for a “non degree development initiative”. As a professional in my 40s man, honestly felt demoralizing to get an email like that because I’m intensely sensitive around this topic. I don’t have a degree. Just some college
Any tips to get better at scripts (story arc, dialogue, etc)? Haven’t had any exposure to scriptwriting before advertising and want more structured training vs learning on the job. Thanks!
Honestly it's a little disturbing how concentrated top firms' recruiting is at a small handful of law schools
Hi fellow fish! Quick vent - I joined a small consulting firm as an associate consultant, little did I know the firm lacks collaboration, training, and documentation, as well as a manager who doesn’t know the product. I come from large size companies so there sink or swim figure it out on your own. Is not how I learn (it’s oracle product as well) How do I avoid this experience again? I would love to grow with a company in my next role and I hate the fact I need to get out asap!
Aside from running your own company does LMM PE best prepare someone to run/invest in small businesses (<$10M revenue)/non traditional hockey stick growth startups Any other roles that would prep better?

Thinking about changing my talent segment and role. What’s the process of changing your TS/R? When do you get approved? Does your TFS let you know if your application was rejected?
When they say "We expect turbulence and will be stopping our service early and preparing the cabin for landing", they mean, "We want to sit in our little chairs and read US Weekly while ignoring you"
Does it make sense to downgrade from 1bedroom to a studio and reduce the rent from 3150 to 2200? Is the rent difference consisted material enough?

My first week at my current company (Big 4) has been very frustrating, disappointing and uncomfortable. I have a strong feeling that it may not be the right place for my career.
I'm wondering what will happen if I quit in such a short period of time.

D.C. area folks - Will I encounter trouble or have a hard time getting an Uber/Lyft from Arlington to BWI? I’m trying to avoid Amtrak. Other recommendations are welcome. Thanks!
I am currently in a “data-centric” role, as in I do a lot of SQL writing, unwinding python/php/java code to understand how systems work, and proposing solutions to either automate processes or eliminate redundancies.
I am wanting to get into cloud architecture, is this too much of a stretch given I don’t have hands on coding experience? I am AWS SAA certified but still feeling like that’s not enough

Just got on boarding details from D. 'Business casual - no jeans'. Not a fan of this move toward casual dress. If you can't dress well for your first day you have optics issues. Suit without a tie.
I get staffed on several projects at once (currently 5). I have about one major project, where I am basically the entire project team, and several other projects, where I have to help out. For example there is a presentation for a CDD tomorrow and I got a call to help the analysts on the team preparing the presentation last minute. Stupid question: does that rather mean that I‘m performing well or that they don’t trust me taking on bigger projects where I‘d be a part of a team?
Isn’t it strange how most PTO auto reply starts with “Thank you for your email”? Like why thank them? Just say you out and about will respond back when you can.

Please share your advice for 1) MBA Admission consultants you recommend, 2) what you think would resonate in an application essay, and 3) other general thoughts on this plan :)
