Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Any considerations when disclosing to the firm that your wife is pregnant? Debating when to share the news...
Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢
Why do previous generations feel the need to belittle the hard work of younger people? My parents always insist they used to put in as many hours as I do when they were my age, but I know it’s not true because I was actually old enough to remember it! (They could afford having a kid. I can’t)
This mother is so worried about not sitting next to her 20 year old son. He is remarkably okay with it.
Hi! I’m looking for recommendations on a good term life insurance policy provider (e.g. MetLife). I recently had my first kid, got a mortgage and hence looking at this more seriously. Can someone pls recommend a good provider? My top criteria are: 1. Reputable company (doesn’t have a history of fighting life insurance claims) 2. Wide variety of policy options to choose from/customize 3. Good customer service This is my 1st insurance purchase ever so greatly appreciate any recommendations Thnx!
Moms specifically at Deloitte, I am 8 weeks pregnant and planning to tell the team right after July 4th weekend. I had a question on the administrative/procedural stuff - do I have to let anyone else outside or project team know? When do I have to start thinking about paper work? Who should I let know about the maternity leave?
I currently make 60LPA in Hyderabad and my firm has an offer for 150k in Chicago. Is it worth? I am generally happy with the package in India and have good savings as I own my house in Hyderabad and I am not a lavish spender. I have been onsite in US previously with an allowance but I did not go crazy over the so called American experience. Single earner with one kid.
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?
We have a parent who always holds up traffic during morning drop off by parking and sitting in her car right in front of the building. How should I address it?
I exclusively breast feed my six months baby. She won't take a bottle now and I tried in vain many times with bm and formula. Any tips.. Am I too late?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
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.
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
My (38F) boyfriend and I have been having sex without birth control for as long as we’ve been together. I wasn’t trying to get pregnant but would be happy if I became pregnant- that’s the only reason I let him nut inside me. I found out that he’s taking a natural birth control pill to prevent my pregnancy. I feel a bit betrayed thst I thought the possibility of pregnancy was on the table when it wasn’t. We had discussed that if it happens, it happens, and we’ll co parent. Do I have a grievance?
What are the insurance rates like at the like of Deloitte, Accenture, etc compared to Tricare Reserve Select in the Guard/Reserves? Trying to decide if staying Guard/Reserve is worth it.
I recently moved to the US for work. Single; went out with a guy from a dating app; he cracked jokes & told what sounded like cautionary story about his friend who married a foreigner and got dumped once she got a green card. I’m confused because I’m from a “wealthy” European country, based on public information I make more than 2x his salary… is it the case that Americans assume everyone dreams about becoming American, regardless of their circumstances? And should i be offended...?
Is asset management a difficult path post-MBA? Are there any lucrative finance roles outside of IB that are available to T15 MBA grads?
Have you ever considered your hourly wage? Saw many posts of people making boatloads of money but it obviously comes from 60-80 hour weeks. If I look at a $300K salary for 80 hours is like 2 jobs.
Anyone in Accenture’s Intelligent Cloud & Infrastructure group? Thinking about applying to a senior analyst position and have a few questions! Thanks!
For those applied R1 (Sept + Oct time), when did you start using the MBA consultant service and for which services? State the consultant name and how much you paid as well if possible.
How can you tactfully push a client lead to encourage change from a direct report of theirs? I have a great relationship with the lead and the report, but the report is dragging on business processes
Looking to book 3 nights (at a Marriott) online, but the first night appears to be booked/unavailable. Has anyone had luck calling a hotel directly when looking to book a stay where only partial days appear to be available online? Did it help if you had status with the hotel chain?
Deloitte consulting manger salary range?
With so many new faces as Community Leaders, how do people feel about doing a zoom Happy Hour next Thursday? This will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, ask me or our CEO whatever is on your mind, and generally connect. Thinking like 730 or 8 eastern for our west coasters?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
What percentage of your salary do you/ should you invest in 401k? And how did that change with age and experience?
May be time for this hotel to clean the ac vents
How do you reimburse a mouse?
Slalom manager or senior manager comp? I’m not sure if the levels, but looking for equivalent. Looking at strategy as well
12 weeks pregnant - first baby. Got an amazing job offer to start in January. Gave my verbal yes, but upon receiving the written offer, learned travel expectation (post-COVID) was 50% not 25%. (cont)
