I am hoping some people can help me here. My SO is in this horrible pit of depression and they are pushing me away. They have all these colliding events in the last few months: father has Alzheimer’s.
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
I'm thinking about getting pregnant just so I can take advantage of maternity leave. Does that make me a terrible person?
Thoughts on weaning - my sweet baby is now 13.5 months and was down to nursing twice a day after she turned one. The last ~2 weeks she’s either been too distracted or too tired to nurse in the evening
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
Starting a thread of suggestions for super happy movies / shows to watch during the two-week wait, (or any of the many waiting periods during the fertility journey)! I'll start: -Mrs Doubtfire -You've Got Mail -The Parent Trap -My Best Friend's Wedding -Mamma Mia I and II -My Big Fat Greek Wedding -Crazy Rich Asians -Ocean's 11, 12, 13 (maybe not quite as feel good, but there are many beautiful people to make you feel good!) :) -Holiday movies: -Hocus Pocus -Elf -Christmas Vacation

I can’t tell anymore: are all married people miserable? Is it normal to think, ‘I can’t do this anymore’ when we’re alone? How do I reconcile that w/ my love for my child & their relationship?

What are you doing for Mother’s Day?
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?
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
How do I become a morning person? Getting a kid seems like the only option, and that's not happening for 1 million reasons.
Serious question. What baby items are most expensive? (other than diapers, formula, college education, nanny.. Etc)
Baby outgrew the nuna pipa in his 6th month… what car seat would you all recommend? Kinda confused and haven’t done enough research around this because I thought this day wasn’t coming around for atleast another year! Apparently not! Any recommendations on what we could go for?
Amazon FLDP vs Gartner Consulting (post-MBA level). I am worried taking Amazon will close the door for consulting in the future. Amazon comp - 130k base + 80k sign-on bonus (~45k first year, ~35k second year) + 100k RSU (4 year vest). Gartner - 125k base + 15K EOY Bonus + 10k sign-on bonus. Do I pass on my hopes for consulting and chase the money?

Hello everyone, I have an upcoming case study with one of the big 4 for a M&A generalist position at manager level. Does anyone have any guidance based on: "Nothing particular to prep, we will share an information memorandum with you and you and you will be given a number of questions. We will ask you to read that for an hour in your own time and then present answers to the questions for 30 minutes to myself and another director. The questions will be a mix of qualitative and quantitative."

While I understand that PwC is actively having layoffs, does anyone else feel like the entire industry is in a downward trend, with the economy right behind it. What is everyone doing to hedge?
What kind of roles does “business analyst” open you up to? I have 5 YOE, 3 in audit and 2 in analytics/cloud enablement consulting. Found a role for business analyst at FAANG that sounds like it would make good use of my cumulative experience but not sure if these are typically dead end roles or not.
I have managed and implemented Oracle projects for the last 10 years. I am a PMP, CSCP and PSM certified. I am looking for a change with a salary of 150,000. Any recommendations?
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
