Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year. My goal is to make it on that promo list in April 2021 - But thats when I am due. When should I inform my team that I am pregnant and how do I let them know that I am still willing to work hard for this promo despite my pregnancy? Thank you!
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Did kick counting drive anyone else crazy?? 30 weeks and just had to eat sugar, drink a cold drink , and do jumping jacks in an attempt to get some kicks. This is going to drive me crazy but not sure if I should be concerned if baby is having a lazy day
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
No shame in this brag moment: My baby brother is going going to be an SEC football player!!

About to switch firms from federal / no travel to commercial / travel with two young kids (under 5). Looking for quick list of recommendations and survival tips to make this transition as a father.
Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
Anyone have a parent or parents who traveled regularly when you were growing up? How did / does this impact you now?(relationships, work, etc.)

Do your parent know what you make?
Hope to learn more if you bought an apt in Manhattan, or if you decided against it (renting/moving to upstate/Long Island/Jersey). My husband and I are considering to have a baby soon and are thinking of buying and living in Manhattan for the next 10 years or so (looking at property under $2M). Please share what you considered as you were making the decision - I hate throwing away rent but also don’t want to trap ourselves in significant financial obligations. Thanks!

New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
Can any at will employer adjust your salary unilaterally like we’ve seen done at several firms this year? Asking because I’m looking at some job offers and not sure how to assess the likelihood of a salary cut especially if the firm has done it before? First instinct is that they won’t lower it soon just because they’d look terrible right? But legally they could?
I work 8+ hour shifts in the office as we are an essential business where masks are required at all times. Has anyone else had the experience of wearing a good mask at work and getting excruciating headaches at work that last for a few hours after work? I've already had an isolation period so it's not Covid, but I'm thinking it might be the higher levels of carbon monoxide, as I've tried wearing a different mask and did not have the same problem.
I work in a women's health clinic- "Dense" brease tissue has become a hot topic for our patients! I feel like it comes up multiple times weekly!

I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar

First time leaving firms - not sure what to do with my 401k. Should I keep it as it is, transfer to an IRA, or a Roth IRA. If it is the latter, I know Roth IRA has a 6k limit but my 401k has ~17k. Will it exceed the limit and if so, what should I do? 22 here, not too familiar with the process. Thanks!

How many days is it acceptable to have 0-3 billable hours when you know a storm is coming?
Would you suggest paying down student loans (approx $29k) while 0% interest or put that money into savings. I’ve been on a 10% salary reduction since April and bought a house last fall. I’ve been able to pay my bills and maintain about 2-3 months of expenses in savings. My disposable income has reduced due to the salary reduction, but I’ve cut out unnecessary spending. I’m trying to decide whether to take advantage of 0% interest and get my loans as low as I can or put that money into savings.
