I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)
Any word on what’s going on at Mother NY?
For those who have their kid(s) back at daycare. Is it an expectation or requirement for the staff to wear a mask? I don’t think it’s realistic for the little ones, but am curious about the adults.

I constantly get talked down in this new team, I hate everything about this project and I can’t take it anymore. I am a single mom and I am very depressed out of this situation. I am about to quit right now, I am all in tears and don’t know what to do. I always try my best and feel like nothing is good enough. I can’t have insurance for my baby, what should I do 😭😭
Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?

As a mother of 2 kiddos with IEPs and a special education teacher in their district you would think their IEPs would be followed. Now I had to call a meeting! They are all mad because I did! I have used an outside agency before to come be the bad guy and it put a target on my back. I am at a lost as to what to do but my kids have a right to their services! Please tell me I am doing the right thing regardless! I have emailed and called getting zero responses. Even including the principal!
Trying to decide between Kellogg and Columbia. Academically and career wise I think Columbia is a good fit, and I wouldn’t mind living in New York, but I’ve only ever heard wonderful things about Kellogg and I loved it when I visited. I’m pretty torn. Can anyone here tell me more about the Columbia culture or, I’d you had to make this same decision, what you did and why?

Folks who've been laid off before: how do you keep the anxiety from creeping in anytime you make even a small mistake at the new job? 🙁
Movie: Dune Budget: 158MM Organic conversation: 2 weeks Brand: X Social Budget: $15k Organic conversation: client asks for 1-2 years
I have social anxiety and I feel like I am being punished because of that. I am not being promoted and was told to work on confidence even though my technical performance was outstanding. I wished I can just "work on my confidence" and boom. But it's not gonna happen like that. Diversity has been the hot topic these days. Why do we view shy people, introverts, socially anxious people as less capable? Should I accept that PA is not for me or can I do something to contribute?
New staff here. Senior just chucked a pencil against the wall at the client site today in rage, yelling "what the hell man!" because I forgot to follow up with the client about something.
Any Slalom Boston folks out there? I’m interested in networking. I know the recruiter very well from the Hartford office and have been connected to the Boston recruiter. More so looking to chat with current employees rather than recruiters as there is a hiring freeze.
Anyone interested in a zoom networking event since that seems to be the norm nowadays. Thought?
My teammate is leaving for a new opportunity soon and I will be floating by myself for a few months. Would anyone be able to provide me with any solid books that pertain to our field?
