30 weeks pregnant and instead of having a zoom celebration, I’d just like to send an email to family and friends to upload their selfie on a website with words of wisdom for us first time parents (which we can print into an album book of some sort). And ideas on what website to use for this? Or any other creative ideas to get family and friends involved that does not require an online party? Thank you
I think schools should send letters (and a PSA) home telling parents NOT to send sick kids to school!!!!!
Maybe staying at home this long has made me more critical, but I’m struggling to maintain any suspension of disbelief with ads and tv shows. Case in point: the MB ad where the kid snuggles the dirty, grime & bug ridden toy off the front of a truck - seriously!? And don’t get me started on ‘Your Honor’ - WTF, do they not have fingerprinting in the NOPD???!! Case closed.
Moving to San Diego in the spring from the central coast. Any recs on places to live (late 30’s with a kid)? Want to be close to restaurants and things to do, but a little too old and tired for gas lamp!
Growing up, gay 🐠, how many of you had a male role model? (father, uncle, male close relative, etc., that was present enough in your life to be a positively influential role model)? I had none, and was curious about others.
What would you do if you were out on a parental leave for 12 weeks? (Besides taking care of your newborn) Taking ideas!
I’m gifting 5 over responsible female bosses who are tired of chasing permission, perfection and praise and sick of the double standards they face in male dominated workplaces to lead confidently, embrace their brilliance and use a blend of masculine and feminine energy to be heard, respected, and gain the credibility necessary to move forward or move on with ease with a customized clarity session. If you’re ready, I’m here to support you.
New father here.. can anyone share how far they were able to take their newborns / toddlers on road trips ? My kid can barely tolerate the car seat ( Graco) beyond 1 hour
You took away our contribution awards, reduced bonuses, and now you're looking to take away the best medical plan in exchange for a shitty one. "Happy Easter kids"
Got very ill and missed 3 weeks of work (in the hospital) so I missed a lot of follow up calls, appointments, and had no prospecting. How should I explain to people why I missed their appointments?
I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.
I work at a boutique that is not very well known, I went on sick leave for personal reasons, which they have been very supportive of. And while on it I received an opportunity to back to a big name I worked for before moving to the boutique. I've only been here for about 7 months. Would it look bad if I agreed to take the offer to boomerang? I'm very confused, everyone I know is saying I shouldn't do it.
Expecting our first baby in a month and as a male I have no idea what to expect; insurance does not include any videos / content to help prepare. Any leads to free content / paid content to help me prepare?
Any good books on disciplines and raising a strong confident girl ?My 4 old is such a cry baby and screams a lot. We are both in consulting so tend to pamper her out of guilt. She is still not contd
My salary is 92,000 paid bi-weekly, and paycheck deductions amount to 31.7%. 6% is 401k and about 1.4% is medical/dental/vision leaving 24.3% tax rate between state (NJ) and federal. Does this sound right or too high? I don’t claim any exemptions on my w4
1 paycheck is spent on rent, the other is spent on loans. 2 years out of grad school, 3.5 years in consulting, make $75K/year. I have a savings ($5K) but I'm sick of this paycheck to paycheck life.
Is Harvard’s discrimination against Asians limited to their business school? For instance, do they do the same in medical school?
Pregnant with our first, we were so excited, we told my in-laws (incl my BIL and SIL) when we were 7 weeks. Found out two months later they decided to start trying and got prego too. So we’re due about 5 weeks apart. My MIL has a huge family that always throws baby showers. My MIL told them not to throw either me or my SIL a shower because we’re due so close to each other, don’t like each other, and she doesn’t want people to have to go to two showers. My mom died when I was little…
I was looking at referral bonuses and some can be pretty high. If anyone is potentially interested in Accenture, I’ll split the bonus with you 50:50.
99 nights this year - Marriott. No idea how. Should I check into a cheap courtyard or something to hit 100 nights this year? I’m lifetime platinum so the only thing I suspect I will lose is my ambassador? Anyone in the same boat and already done the research? No idea how Marriott is honoring status next year. Thanks!
Let’s discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start. I’m a 29 YO female, almost 6 years experience total, at a 115 base, guaranteed 126 if I meet utilization, with potential for more bonus. No target school or MBA. I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?
Just got off the phone with recruiter from Deloitte. Can someone confirm if she’s lying, said senior consultants making 105 is on the higher end range of the salary band for cyber. That’s below what I make a 1st year SC equivalent at Accenture

Does Salesforce (and its acquisition companies like Tableau and Slack) top up RSUs each year in addition to the original RSU grant at signing?
Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.

In-flight meal included boneless chicken. Mine had teeny-tiny bones. Silently choked trying not to wake the guy beside me. Told the FA. FA said to call United. How many points?
We have an AMAZING nanny - we adore her and she is so great with our child. We are just using her for 6 months while we wait for our daughter to get into a nursery program. We didn’t talk about this up front - but, typically, what do you do in these situations for vacation/holidays? If she goes on vacation, do we still pay her for those days? If we go on vacation, do we still pay her for those days (supposing we give plenty of heads up)?

I don’t want to workout anymore. I just want to eat delicious food and watch tv and grow fat. I put so much pressure on myself all the time to go to the gym. I’m not losing weight either. I wish I could be okay with this. Do any of you feel this way? How do you deal with it?
