Planning to start a family. Debating whether to stick it out in PA or move to industry. For all of you that stayed in PA, how did you manage work/life/parenthood? For all of you in industry, when did you transition out of PA, right after mat leave? Let’s assume we live in a post Covid world. For more background, my partner also has a decently demanding job (not as crazy as PA though).
Seeking your advice! My mom and MIL both offered to watch baby on weekdays when I return to work. My mom is an angel and MIL is irresponsible and I don’t trust her with the baby. Is there a way to only have my mom watch baby without offending MIL or do we need to get a nanny?
Any Christmas gift ideas for new parents? My best friend is due next week, and I’d like to get her something thoughtful for Christmas that is for her and not just for the baby - any ideas? Thank you!!

Hi all. Hoping this bowl provides a way for single-parents to support each other emotionally. For me my job is super demanding not only hourly but mentally and I don’t get enough sleep, can’t cook for myself, can’t exercise, etc. I know you get it. My kid (I have just 1) is amazing and she gives me so much but she also takes a lot of energy. I know you get it. Welcome to the bowl.
Planning a 5 week trip to Italy with 6 month old: 1) What are must haves I should bring with me? 2) Should I move baby to solids before or after the trip?
Should I transition to a tech sales job? Thoughts on risk vs reward? I am 34 yo, married with a baby incoming. I work at Google Cloud in solutions engineering (I help develop quantitative business cases with sales teams for customers). My cash base + bonus is $220k (going to ignore equity). I have an MBA from the University of Chicago, not that it matters much in sales. I have always been in a consulting role but I think I can make more in sales. I have a competitive personality and I am bored.
How are any moms with babies and/ or immuno compromised relatives handling holiday parties and/or outings? I’m feeling a lot of pressure to attend my company holiday party as a team lead (and may be asked to speak) but I have a newborn and an immuno compromised mother in law who I’ll be celebrating Hannukah with two days later. I dont want flu, rsv or COVID! Can I decline or does it look bad?
Something I used to do with my father before he died was fixing his home garden. Thanks to that now whenever I get a new property to sell I dedicate myself to fixing the garden before showing it, I learned to do it very fast and very aesthetically. Have you ever fixed houses by yourself to improve sales?

Hi Ladies - I am about to close out on a purchase of a home (worked for it all by myself; all my money) but unfortunately it’s coming at a time when my spouse is still grieving from the death of a parent. I don’t know how to navigate this. Should I keep him apprised of the home purchase? Should I stay on the down low? Should I ask him how he wants to be involved given that he’s still grieving? Thoughts?

How reliable is TCS package? I got an offer of around 29-30 lpa. YOE 12
But, TCS offer has only 18% basic of overall CTC. All orgs have basic of 35 to 50%
1) Monthly performance pay - it is fixed but read in Quora that TCS changes it every year as per their wish and can reduce this amount and increase QVA component?
2) Quarterly variable is almost 13% of CTC. How much is paid actually for Associate Consultant level?
3) Retention incentive. Is it discontinued after 1-2 yrs?
Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
Hey ladies, any advice on starting a new job and sharing your pregnant? I start a new role in a few weeks, I’ll be about 11w when I start and it’s fully remote. Any advice on how to share / when? This is my 4th round of IVF (no children) and I’ve miscarried in the first before so I feel like I wasn’t sure if this is/will be something I need to share but things are progressing well and I’m not sure what to expect. I’d like to wait till around 20w or so if possible, is that bad?

Does anyone know how much hair stylists and freelancing makeup artists make? I always see the ones I know wearing expensive clothes and carrying expensive bags work 2k. I don’t think I can buy them with my $130k salary. They also seem to be very much in control of their time. Should I switch careers? 😅 I’d love to be a makeup artist.
Should i consider a potential tenant with following facts
Credit score far lesser what they had stated (500 which was dropped from 700 they say due to student loan)
New job so no supporting paystubs.
I do have the employment offer letter, but is that enough? What can i even verify using that?
No cosigner and the tenant is reluctant to share bank statements.
As a landlord im bit desperate too and do see some red flags. But like the kid overall and he feels genuine! Help
What’s your best job posting site? I had relied on LinkedIn but recently, every job posting gets reposted daily, so it looks like a “fresh” job post and instead it’s old. On top of that, since I’m looking for remote work, the job postings can be overwhelming (like 2k postings “new” for certain keywords)

I want to make a career pivot into Consulting (specifically Finance Transformation). I currently work in Tax as a Senior (Toronto).
I’m a quick learner, I work hard and I do a lot of firm development activities (recruiting, mentorship, learning and growth, etc.). I’ve also done a decent amount of research on the CFO function, the finance processes, different tech used in transformation, and CFO of the future.

Hi Everyone, I am trying to apply for a Technical Support role at Dropbox I’m entering all the required fields but there seems to be an issue, when I hit submit after filling the form, it doesn’t submit and throws error ‘Looks like you left this blank! Please fill out this required field’ when all the fields are entered already (I have checked so many times, and filled the form from scratch several times too). Anyone from Dropbox who can put me in touch with HR or suggest what I should do next?
New manager and am struggling with managing and leading. Specifically, my staffs don’t finish my tasks on time and don’t communicate. I’ve been giving specific deadlines and instructions and asked them to communicate if they cannot meet deadline. They continue to ghosts me and miss deadline. I’m beginning to think maybe I’m too nice? Or idk what’s causing this this. How do I start this conversation with my staffs? How do I prevent this going forward? These are not lazy/low performing staffs.
