As if busy season couldn’t get worse, had to take a parent to the ER with heart attack symptoms and they don’t allow family inside right now because of COVID.
Tell us how long you've been a teacher without saying how long you've been a teacher. Ex: Overhead projectors were like gold 😂.
I have a student who did nothing the whole term, but passed the final exam with a 79. Should I pass him?
First time pregnant here. I have no clue what to expect after delivery. My husband and I decided to not ask help from our parents as they live in another country and don’t want them to catch covid while travelling. So, just want to understand what would be the recovery time after delivery? How long will it take approximately, before I can cook a meal again? Just want to get an idea before saying no to our parents.

Do any firms out there offer a Global Parental Leave policy? Curious to see how prevalent it is and if it is actually valued by employees
Deloitte Moms, I just found out I’m pregnant with my first! Super excited! I have a question about the firm maternity leave policy. Per my knowledge, our maternity leave is 4 months. However, I’ve seen coworkers who went on leave for up to 6 months. How do they manage to do that? Also, based on your experience, when’s the optimal time to tell employer/ coworkers about your pregnancy?
Me and my husband are unsure whether we want kids or not. What are some good resources to read up on to understand what we would be signing up for by having a child or missing out on by not having one? Also ladies who have/do not have kids. What were your reasons for deciding against/for having kids. I am extremely confused and do not want to run out the clock and realise later that we should have had kids. We like kids (we always point out kids to each other in public) but unsure about our own.
So lesson learned. Do not use Barney gif from How I met your Mother when IMing on Microsoft teams. Totally forgot the character persona on that show and the gif... was a great reminder.... 🤡

Cousin, wife and his kid left after a weekend stay. Feeling so damn blue and super stressed about work tomorrow.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?
I'm planning to switch firms about two weeks after my baby is born. Will I get parental leave benefits in my new firm? In other words, in order for someone to get parental leave benefits must...
Wise F 🐠 - negotiation help needed - my 57 yo stepmom is an associate VP at a hospital. She’s been offered her same role as .5 FTE instead of leaving outright. How should she negotiate scope of role?

Two part: 1. (Is it appropriate for me to ask?) — how much is it to purchase Greenhouse? I want to recommend it to a client to help their recruiting function but want to make sure it’s not unreasonably $$$. 2. Greenhouse is my fave ATS but there’s many I have never used... if anyone has recos for a small-mid company w designs for growth I’m all ears, thanks!
For those of you in Tier 1 cities, how much do you pay in rent compared to your monthly salary? My monthly rent is $2.6k (36% of monthly income) and am wondering if that’s too much..
I’m not familiar with startups but have been interviewing with one. After doing some more research through the interview process, I found where the status of the company is “debt”. Assuming this is in debt? Is this something to be worried of? Are there specific questions that I should ask through out my interview process?
Has anyone ever been pulled off an account and put on another at a client’s request due to “personalities not meshing”? Any advice would be helpful.

Why are a lot of companies looking for Consulting experience now a days? Every job I apply to wants consulting experience from a Big 4 or MBB is this a new trend?
Do recruiters secretly make fun of you/don’t believe your current salary when you ask for “too much”. Most my interviews (even pre-covid) involved the recruiter telling me that is not within their budget. Just for reference I have 2 YOE in Product Management asking for $115k
