I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one
We are planning to start a family next year and I'm just about to start a new job at a new agency in a new holding company (NY). I've never really had to think about maternity leave benefits so I dont even know where to start. What's considered a good policy? What are things I should look for? Also, I know I shouldn't, but I feel a little guilty starting a new job knowing I plan on taking maternity leave within 12-18 months.
Anyone know much about routers? My father in Leander has an incredibly fast Asus router, but his home is 7,000 sq ft and the signal completely dies when you go up the stairs to their mother in law suite where their tv is. Extenders don’t work well either. I suggested doing four Google mesh points but he wants to see if he can figure out with his current router. Anyone know how to set up an AiMesh router with Asus?
How much do you target in your kid’s 529? Given tuition inflation, and the vast cost difference across public and private schools, how do you think about a target number? I currently have ~$60k saved for my 8 year old and I’m wondering if I’m on track.
I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
Do you use some sort of cover for your toddler seat so they can sleep better in the car? He definitely slept better in a baby seat with the cover but feel like a cover on toddler seat would smother
Just had the worst interview of my life… i don’t know if it’s because it’s my time if the month, but I was overcome with nerves… and now all i feel like doing is punching a wall. I know I could be positive and maybe I’m being hard on myself due to Mother Nature but…
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?
Started taking prenatal vitamins , ubiquinol and vitamin D. Been doing this for a month to prep to get pregnant. Breaking out like crazy for 3 weeks now. Are these linked?
Any parent willing to share experience and journey for a mild Autism child over the years. When you noticed, how it progressed, what helped the most etc. 3yr son is diagnosed with mild Autism and I feel he is getting better in some areas but worse with stimming and zoning out. I know evey child is different but a worried parent trying to decipher what future holds. Thanks!
My boyfriend and I are planning to get engaged within a year or so. We’ve been together for 7 years now. Both our families are from a religious country. I have accepted that my boyfriend smokes and drinks alcohol but this is a huge red flag for my dad. I’m not sure how things will work out if I want to marry him and my father doesn’t approve because of this. My boyfriend wanted to hide it from my family but I’m not sure if it’s a good idea… He’s planning to meet my father this (cont)
Can you quit your job while on short term disability? Will you get penalized somehow? Going on maternity leave (which is just short term disability) and planning my options out.
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
Looking for blackout curtains for my toddlers room. Found these on pottery barn kids. Has anyone tried these? Don’t want to spend the money only to find out they don’t work https://www.potterybarnkids.com/m/shop/kids-baby-curtains-shade/blackout-curtains/
Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

There was a similar post here recently, but I am currently in the same boat. (I’m also torn because it’s a difference of $2k/month after taxes) 1. Boring work at start up with a toxic environment (no WLB, etc) for just over $200k base + bonus + equity 2. Solid work at an award-winning shop (and WLB) with a team you dig, trust, and have worked with before for $150K

Should I bother waiting for promo to start applying if I’m looking to stay in consulting short term or would I come in at ~entry level regardless? 2 YOE at ACN Strat, expecting promo to C in Nov. Generally like the work, but feel I could make more while working same or similar hours. Current base 100k, ~6% bonus, expecting that to go to ~130k (?) with ~6% bonus after promo.
