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)
Client keeps inviting me to meetings but not the EM or anyone else on the team (who needs the information in the meeting). Should I keep forwarding invites to him/her or just let them address it?
Need help understanding this colleague at work, who is really annoying me these days. She just joined my project team. Everytime I call her 1-1 for work, 50% of time I get 'I Dont knows'...
My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
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 have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.
Labor Day is coming up next week, and I'd love your thoughts on how we can recognize workers in this truly strange year. Maybe a mega thread in the Coronavirus Work-life bowl asking what it's been like to be a worker in the year 2020? Could be a cool time capsule to have people from different industries share their stories about what it's like to work through this. Any thoughts that come to mind?
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.

Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position?
