When are you recommending pregnant women to stop working? Is your facility doing inductions for low risk women?
How many of you are doing back up care/day care/ child care vs managing children at home? I'm paranoid about entrusting someone outside my household with child care during the pandemic, my husband agrees as well. He's awesome and pitches in equally in everything! However, we are both so burned out. What's the popular vote here? What's your thoughts around this, pros and cons?
Baby attorney here. Does anyone have good resources or guides they can recommend for probate and family cases in Texas?
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
Has anyone ever used the SkyBaby for flying? What are your thoughts? Me and the 6mo old will be flying solo cross country. It’s not our first rodeo, but the last one (when he was 4mo) was pretty miserable. I had the boba wrap on the way there and it was just way too hot and confining. The baby bjorn on the way back was better but he still got pretty squirmy so I ended up taking him out and holding him for 4 hours. And tickets are way too expensive for his own seat.
Got advice for some baby fish nervous about graduating to the fishbowl in a pandemic? Bonus points if you have any advice for our baby fish who will need visas to work in the US. Will be sharing with the students on Friday so stay tuned. Thanks everyone!
I am around 6 weeks pregnant and feeling little feverish now. Temperature was around 100. Has anyone experienced this, what did you do?
Healthy dog breeds. First time dog parent and would love to adopt a healthy fit. Thoughts?
Some people just have it all. The partner that I work with is on fast track. Became partner in late 30s (no mba). Has multiple kids and is also a talented artist. How do these people manage to have a very good family life, also be on fast track in the firm (which means spending endless hours ) and also do something they love (sing, paint, dance) on the side? I have one kid and I don’t seem to find any time outside of work and spending time with my kid
Was hired into a specific supply chain consulting field based on my major, yet they have me working in the PMO for a YEAR on this engagement. My skills are not being fully utilized. Advice?
Deloitte friends: any benefit to exceeding utilization targets? Project requirements mean I can't take pto before YE but I'm taking for 97%...
Is unlimited PTO a curse or a blessing!
How lenient are you with billing? Just saw a presentation showing the average utilization was over 95% at my mid sized consultancy and I swear I know so many people that barely have work. Like literally during the staffing calls everyone says they’re only 50% billable and are looking to take on more work.
Anyone have an app or Excel spreadsheet they use to keep track of utilization? We just switched systems and our new system doesn’t give us a real time balance of our utilization rate (cont)
￼ I got an offer today from a firm that’s fairly new and has about 13 attorneys. Only two of the attorneys are women, and they’re both quite a bit older. I don’t think the firm has a maternity leave policy. How do I find out? I’m a 26-year-old and want to start a family soon? But I don’t want them to know that quite yet.… Advice?
Really can't imagine a woman voting for Trump now, and also a man having a woman(sister/mother/wife) in his life. This is so twisted that words fail me.
I feel like my skill set is being under utilized. 10-20% of the work I do is predictive modeling / data viz & the rest is correcting minutes, powerpoints, and other BS. Has anyone else been here?

I currently work in hardware technical sales as a Senior Sales Engineer, OTE $110-120K with 1.5 YOE. Industrial automation equipment for a large player in the space. Software sales seems appealing due to remote work, more flexion, and higher pay comps. Any advice on how I should start to structure/build my experience for a move? Anyone have similar experience in switching and have recommendations on companies I should target?
Level 10 NJ resource, looking for a project asap. Can do (or bullshit really well) just about anything. Have done a bunch of BA and PMO roles since joining in 2015. Low LCR, frugal traveller. Help?
Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.
It will be 4 years in the firm performing analytics, business intelligence & PMO roles including 1.5 years of international client engagement. Is it time to target Manager? How long should I wait?
Anxiety for WFH when I really am ill 🤒
How is the financial services consulting different across MBB? In terms of service offerings, areas of focus, culture
MBB interviewers: “What’s your management style”, “What’s your communication preference”, ever hurt to provide a story to illustrate those traits? Or best spend that time elsewhere (“tell me about a time” questions, the case itself, etc). Ideally would do both, but only 30/45 mins here. TIA!
If there’s a mismatch between the 797 and visa stamping I.e. 797 valid for three years (standard) and visa for 5, do we need to get it restamped after extension approval, with the same company?

PHR or SHRM? I am looking to get more certifications related to HR vs recruiting, but I am unsure on which one is "better" or will help me grow into more of a strategic HR role. Help!!!
Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!
Deloitte my S&A offer has 23 vacation days. Will I actually be able to use any of that? Does it count against my utilization? What’s the cultural expectation around using PTO?
