I have a student who did nothing the whole term, but passed the final exam with a 79. Should I pass him?
Can I start my parental leave before my child is born, so that I don’t hit the bench? My current roll off date lines up with my wife’s delivery date and it’s looking like the baby is going to come late.
Brenda's got a baby.
Deloitte parents: how long do you have to be with the firm to qualify for parental leave? I’m considering an offer but am currently pregnant.
Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?
Hi, looking for recommendations for a therapist, ideally NYC -based but also someone who does remote sessions. Mostly looking for help with severe anxiety, depression, and maybe cognitive behavior therapy. BCBS insurance. I’m a single parent, and I’m struggling. Thanks in advance.
I feel terrible. My mum and my husband both told me I am fat and need to lose weight ASAP. They were not trying to insult me, they both really think they have my best in interest. I am a mother of 11 months old twins, am still breastfeeding and currently have 11kg more than before pregnancy. I was always skinny and before pregnancy wore size 8. I feel so bad for hearing that, and feel like a failure on all levels.
Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?
Seeing the “3% pledge for pay equity” popping up next to agency names here. Interesting that our Global CEO is a woman and don’t see us on that list. We also have the worst parental leave. 🤔

2018 Home Office Tax Deduction: Can anyone explain for me what (eg, limits, calculations) has changed for how I can write my home office off taxes for 2018 with the new tax laws? Please & thank you.
Looking for recommendations for a real home office chair—something with actual back support. Just turned 30, and my back has made it abundantly clear that the POS Target chair that I’ve had since college is no longer acceptable.
I’m getting a relocation allowance as part of a new job with KPMG that is honestly well more than I need. Do you think eyebrows will rise - if I invest in a home office with this money? They need receipts..
Best office chair/ brands and functionality/specs you’d recommend as a Christmas present for my dad? (Who works from home but uses cheap/ not quality chair)
Is anyone else at B4 getting slaughtered? Wait listed everywhere so far despite 760 and above average stem GPA at all schools i applied to. Leadership is probably a weak point for me ill admit but certainly not non existant and I know my ECs are above average. I feel completely blindsided

My CD is so fucking unoriginal he pitched "Life moves fast" to a client as a tagline. And thought it was brilliant.

Interviewing for internal strategy roles at a few firms in the coming weeks (retail, CP, healthcare) at manager level. Would value any tips on casing for corporate and how it differs from MBB casing.
Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience? It seems like all recruiters that are reaching out lately, are from small firms and for jobs with lower compensation than my current position. When I tell them my desired compensation they think it is too high.
IB hours vs FDD in Big 4, which is worse?

started a new role and the pay is great but the culture is very intense and mentally not sure how long I’ll last / how happy I would be. What would you do?
Whether we need to give back joining bonus if we resign before 1 year but last working day is after 1 year or so?
Anyone successfully book multiple rooms with points? Perhaps even at a discounted point rate? (I.e thing booking rooms over a weekend for wedding guests) Random thought.
I’m confused. I was furloughed from a regional firm, and I’m scared of being laid off. I have an offer from a small cpa firm and an offer from a mid tier firm. My goal has always been to join b4, and I’m going to try when the hiring freeze (HF) is lifted...but what should I do right now? 1. Stay at regional, apply to b4 after HF 2. Take mid tier offer, apply to b4 after HF 3. Take small firm offer, apply to b4 after HF 4. Take mid tier offer, become senior, and then apply to b4 2 years later

Freelancers -- what health insurance do you guys use? I really need to leave my current place but it's hard to find another gig that isn't freelance to full time. But I also need health insurance.
What is the Sr Consultant compensation band in Deloitte consulting (Analytics & Strategy) ? Thanks in advance!!
Lay-offs! Which firms are doing them? Accenture Strategy had big layoffs in 2016 but were doing well as of 2018. How about your respective firms?
I have so much stuff to finish for 9/15 and my mind decides it's a good time to go through heavily missing my late mother.
