Mamas who travel... how did you overcome the fear of having your child not have the same “mom” relationship with you?
My mat leave ends next month and I am absolutely dreading it. I’m fortunate that my baby is easy going and sleeping well so my time with her has been great. I’ve been getting bad anxiety thinking about returning to work. I’ve seen women post about how they couldn’t wait to go back to work so I feel strange that I’m not like that. Anyone else been through this?
When was the moment that it really dawned on you that you are a full fledged attorney? Mine was when I was a first year and did a pro bono DV case and won custody, alimony, and child support for mom.
When are we going to admit that the every week travel requirement was created by baby boomers trying to get away from their wives and kids?
Gender Issue: someone in my family (Father 🙄) keeps iterating on the issue, that woman should never be allowed in to lead positions. Can't deal with it but have to start yelling at him. Anyone h

Lmao about all of the liberals losing their minds. Guys, if Either party had put up a decent candidate, this wouldn't haven even been a contest. Let's not kid ourselves about the alternative.
I don’t like dogs. Don’t find them cute, they smell horrible, and how do people let them lick their faces?! Ewww
Would u give up ur beloved pet to move in w ur SO? My bf has a viscous, possessive cat that only is nice to him. That cat attacks, bites, & scratches w an aggression that is clearly designed to maim, not play. I dn’t feel like I can ask him to shelter the cat bc the thing would surely be put down. None of his friends or fam want to adopt it & get attacked by the little beast for the nxt 15 yrs. Plus if we don’t work out., he’s without his baby for no reason. I want a life w him bt idk what to do
As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends. But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)
Does EY pay 100% for maternity leave 4 weeks before baby is due? I know they do 16 weeks post delivery but CA state law allows you to take 4 before due date. Anyone able to get it approved and paid?
Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
I woke up and had a rush of anxiety thinking about my family and future. Dad isn’t working. Sister can’t find a job. Moms health is deteriorating. Two mortgages. Job security. Whew child

I’m a 1st year prob 1 teacher & I just found out I’m pregnant (due mid-June). Definitely NOT planned and VERY stressed nervous. It’s hard to be happy right now. Advice on telling my principal, etc?
This mother is so worried about not sitting next to her 20 year old son. He is remarkably okay with it.
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

Is agency culture relatively the same across the country? Are agencies in smaller markets a little more chill (better work life balance, less chaos, etc.)? I'm getting a little burnt out and I'm not sure if it's a NYC thing or an advertising thing.
What are expense policies at like other agencies? Dinner, travel, etc... trying to determine which one of our shops are the most generous with their employees. 👐
